In another thread I mentioned that I didn't feel much like wearing my bling lately. Here's a new reason. MY gf in the bling business says there is a BIG increase in grab and run since the gold market has gone way up. Thugs are taking it right off your neck or wrist. One paper in London says diners were held up at dinner during the riots and forced to remove all of their jewelry. The state is now requiring you have proof of ownership of any gold you turn in. Last week I traded in an unused ring for an upgrade and I went through about 20 min of paperwork to prove I was not tuning in hot merchandise!
