In this economic climate diversifying your financial portfolio is one of the soundest investments to be made in 2010. Gold has become a fierce competitor in the financial market for several reasons over the past 18 months. Due to the falling production of gold globally, the international gold price per once continues to rise. The falling Euro has had a large imapct on the gold comex, simply due to its volitativity and unstable European economies.
The commodities market has seen an influx of consumers buying gold bars. Publicly traded companies have joined the bullion movement, causing a gain in recognition amongst financial institutions. Swordfish Financial, Inc.’s (SWRF) is a publicly traded company with revenue coming from the recovery or margin of stray and inactive assets. These assets originate from high net worth individuals and companies, held in financial institutions around the world. On March 8th 2010, Swordfish announced that they have entered into a Letter of Intent to exchange 623,950 shares of its common stock for 31,197,500 kilograms of Gold Bullion. This trend has streamlined tangible gold bars into a vital component amongst savvy investors.
The financial situation in Greece has spilled over to the entire continent. The first quarter reports saw falling euro numbers along with gold pricing reaching all time highs. The Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou requested that the European Union leaders meet to discuss the nation’s fiscal crisis. We can be assured that the gold comex was a hot topic and great discussion.During this meeting a 110 billion-euro package of emergency loans to Greece from the European Union and International Monetary Fund were guaranteed so the country will meet its debt obligations. Due to this news gold rose to $1235.00 and the euro sliped to $1.425, the lowest in 4 years!
Frank Lesh of FuturePath Trading LLC in Chicago said, “Investors want to hold a currency that’s going to maintain its value,” “Gold is a part of the currency crosses now. The international currency is gold.”

The economy and the surge for eco-friendly products have influenced a lot of spring trends, including those for high fashion jewelry. The influence is seen in both the inspiration for the accessories and the materials designers are choosing to use. Regardless of the motivation behind the jewelry trends for summer 2010, one style is being emphasized across the board: arm candy. This year everyone will be wearing cuffs, bangle bracelets, and leather bands.
In high fashion jewelry, cuff bracelets have always been prominent arm candy and this year’s spring trends are no different. One refreshing change is the use of stainless steel, bronze, and titanium in many designs, giving an updated look to traditionally loved styles. Most of the cuff bracelets are crafted with patterns or cutouts, bringing subtle yet eye-catching attention to the piece. Because they are being crafted as beautifully subtle statement pieces, cuff bracelets are becoming the most popular, yet affordable, of this year’s jewelry trends.
Bangle bracelets are also showing up in many collections and, in most cases, emphasizing colors with semi precious gems or tinted metals. Many of the fashion trends for spring 2010 coincide with this idea, as bold colors are highlighted in many designs. The ability for designers to introduce various tints through semi precious gems has enabled the pieces to be worn with both elegant outfits or with casual attire. As opposed to the chunky style of cuffs, bangle bracelets can traditionally be found in both thick and narrow widths, adding to their appeal. The arm candy can either be the focal point of an outfit or a loveable accessory helping to add color. The versatility of bangle bracelets will help jewelry trends transition for spring into summer.
Lastly, leather bands will be staying in style in high fashion jewelry trends. For spring 2010, the bands will be seen more as thick wristwatch bands for both men and women. And, to play off of the resurgence of highly demanded leather bags, many women’s styles will also incorporate the idea of wearing layers of thin leather bands, often in various colors. The craze of leather will continuously be seen throughout designs the spring, trends for the summer, and will even carry into fall collections.
If you’re looking for a statement piece or a subtle addition to your outfit, you’re bound to find something fashionable within the designs of arm candy. Look for a pop of color for your wrist with the playful tinted metals, semi precious gems, and died genuine leather and always look for the pieces that convey your personal style.
