There are numerous ways to invest in gold. Each person has their preference, but buying gold jewelry as an investment is probably the worst option. When you buy a gold necklace, you are paying a lot for workmanship, and are paying more than you ordinarily would for the amount of gold in weight. That is to say if gold is selling for $950 an ounce, you cannot just compute the weight of the necklace and add the margin for profit. Dollars are added for the design and craftsmanship. This does not mean if you are stranded in harsh unsettled times and in need of food, you cannot break off a couple of links of gold and exchange it for a loaf of bread. But, there are far better ways to make a gold investment. Besides, few necklaces are 24 kt. gold, or pure gold.

You can invest in gold stocks as you would invest in Wal-Mart either individually or through a mutual fund, a sort of hedging by not putting all your money into one stock. The problem here is that if your stock goes up you will make money , but you will not receive gold when selling the stock.

The best method of gold investing, depending on your point of view, is to have some sort of physical possession of the product. This can be in coin, bullion, or bars. With coins you might be paying a higher spread because of its engraved design and is desired by collectors. Remember gold is not light, so it would be advantageous to have it in smaller units for quick transporting if the need arises. Gold is very valuable and if you need to make an emergency purchase you would not want to exchange a gold bar for a loaf of bread. If you do not fear an economic collapse or something to that effect, bars and other more bulky units would be the best way to invest in gold for the purpose of hedging against inflation.
