Gold and Platinum reach parity. Working in the jewelry industry a rule of thumb for goldsmiths and designers was "Platinum is double the price of gold"... It's what I told everyone when they were trying to decide what metal to pick (amongst the other pros and cons of the metals-- no I won't babble on about this kind of stuff even though I love too).
This is no longer the case. Gold has surged above $1800 an ounce and now.. Venezula wants it's gold back. Sorry, no more gold for you, it’s ours and we’re taking it back!
