    Our ancestors wore chains of rusty iron and now you are enslaving yourself and exchanged the rusty chains for gold ones. Why on earth would you spend that much money on accessory that provides no benefit to you?? Too many young men who don't have a pot to pi$$ in or a window to throw it out of riding around with these big chains and busted slippers. Simply put...FOOLISH

      Stop with the foolishness. Long before slavery occurred people were wearing gold jewelry. Long before slavery the various groups of Africans were regal and wore gold for it’s many beneficial properties spiritually and health-wise. We have an extensive history before slavery and we will have one long after slavery is forgotten. Slavery was a period of time, stop behaving as if it is all our people have ever known and that we have always been victims for our entire existence.

      You can simply google the benefits of wearing and/or consuming authentic gold. Same goes for copper, silver, gemstones etc.

      Stop being so narrow minded and look beyond your nose for information.

    Those would have been chunky, weighty items, at $7000 and $18,000 if they were only 14 karat...
