Jessica Chastain’s Oscar Style is Golden

Jessica Chastain, the talented actress who was up for an Oscar for her role in The Help, received extensive attention for her sartorial choice at the Academy Awards as she walked the runway in a black strapless Alexander McQueen gown accented with gold buillon and metallic thread. Chastain wore her hair less ornate, with the front pulled back and the rest grazing her back.

Reviews of the gown are mixed—while many praise the McQueen gown as a masterpiece, other draw comparisons to an oriental rug. What do you think?

Jennifer Lawrence Shines In Gold!

There has been much buzz about the new franchise Hunger Games coming to theaters soon and Jennifer Lawrence definitely made more buzz with her gold dress at the premiere. Jennifer wore an extravagant gold dress that would catch any eye and as the The Blemish said, could also make her look like the Oscar award herself. The Blemish went on to even mention yours truly by saying, "She must be hoping she can subliminally convince people to think “Academy Award” when they think of this movie. That or “how much money do you think Cash4Gold can melt her down for?”

By giving the gift of gold or buying a piece for yourself, you are essentially making an investment.Which would you rather get as a gift—a gold bracelet or a gold Gaultier bar?

Logical Investment: Gold Plated iPhone?

As if the iPhone wasn’t already a glitzy item, the folks at Computer Choppers want to spruce up your phone with gold plating for a hefty $599 on top of the phone price. A true Apple aficionado doesn’t have to stop their either, as the same company will gold plate your MacBook Pro too! The MacBook is $1200-1500 on top of the computer price.

Additional goods that can be outfitted in gold—a VAMP NOS CD player for $8,000, a Nintendo DS for $320, and several iPod models ranging from $130-720. Even Nokia is gildable, with the Nokia 6500’s $550 golden upgrade. What do you think—is gold jewelry the way of the past and gold technology the accessory of the future?

Happy Valentine's Day!

Valentine's Day is about showing the ones you love how much you appreciate them. Some people do this with flowers, cards, chocolates, and others kick it up a notch and purchase jewelry! When looking back, many of us have gold jewelry from previous Valentine's that are either outdated, broken, or are from past relationships we would rather forget. If this is the case, why not make some room this Valentine's Day and send in that old and unwanted jewelry and make cash!
