Peridot is the official birthstone for the month of August. Legend says that peridot was one of the favorite gemstones of Cleopatra. The advantages of peridot are to attract love and calm anger while also soothing nerves and dispelling negative emotions.
Ads on TV promise big bucks giving you "cash for gold." People in the ads say they've received hundreds of dollars -- extra cash for tough times -- by mining their jewelry for gold.
The 10News I-Team put these ads to the test, buying four of the same 10-karat gold men's wedding rings for $58 apiece.
The price of gold has been solid, especially in a down economy. In the past month, gold's value has ranged from $800 to $900 an ounce.
"It is precious metal; it'll always be worth something," explains Dano McCarthy of Leo Hamel Fine Jewelers, who weighed the 10News I-Team's rings and estimated a buyback price. "Everybody's entitled to buy stuff; everybody's entitled to make a profit."
