July 17th, 2009 by James L. Sweaney, CGA, FGA. GG

Yesterday, a rather imperious elderly lady came into our store with husband in tow, and asked me to look at a yellow metal pierced cuff bracelet. She said “I just want to know what it is worth” (and of course, didn’t want to pay anything for the service).

I began to explain that I needed to know what she meant by “What is it worth?”
