Looking back on 2012, there were a couple of notable purchases that caught our attention. As 2013 has only just begun, these purchases were still fresh in our minds:
The Prince Charles and Lady Diana Wedding Coin
This coin is 10 ounces of pure 24 karat gold that commemorates the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer. On July 29, 1981, Lady Diana Spencer became Diana, Princess of Wales. The beloved Princess and her marriage to the Prince are commemorated on this spectacular gold coin.
The year of the wedding is printed on the front of the coin, along with the royal crest and the words “Marriage of HRH Prince Charles to Lady Diana Spencer”. Having this piece of history is remarkable, and is sure to be a treasured part of a collection for generations to come.
Kashmir Sapphire Ring
Sapphires from Kashmir are known to be among the best. With a spectacular cornflower blue color and a sleepy quality, these gems are some of the rarest in the world. The stones are known for the velvety blue color they exhibit naturally.
Discovery of new sapphires that matched the quality of the earliest and most astounding discoveries slowed greatly in 1887, so most of the sapphires that were to be found are already owned across the world. With the exception of private sellers and estate sales, buying a Kashmir sapphire is almost impossible.
Global Gold and Silver is proud to have acquired these fine pieces, making them the hottest purchases of 2012. We look forward to what 2013 has in store for Global Gold and Silver!
