Investors poured their financial hopes into gold Wednesday, seeking security from European and U.S. debt troubles and pushing the precious metal to a record high that only complicates life for jewelry designers.
Gold gained as much as $25.80 an ounce to top out at $1,588.10 Wednesday — an increase of 29.1 percent from a year earlier.
