Using gold jewellery as assets for AOS

I have a question--I, the Indian beneficiary, received some gold jewellery from my parents and other guests as wedding gifts as is often the custom in India. Could I use them as assets? Has anyone done this before? Of course, I'll get it weighed, valued, certified etc. and express it in terms of USD. It'll be around $8,000. I mean gold is as good as liquid cash and only appreciates in value. Just wondering if anyone had any thoughts on this?

I would just like to present the strongest financial case possible and contribute to our AOS.

P.S.: My husband is currently earning $21,620 and we have about $3000 in our bank accounts (2 person household). We should be good for the interview, right?

Am I just over thinking this stuff at the last moment? :bonk:

I think it is possible as long as you show an appraisal from a certified jeweler.

Isn't $21,620.00 is enough for two people household and it meets the poverty line?

At this point do you really need to identify yourself as "The Indian beneficiary" don't we already know you on a user name basis...lol

I think showing a certified appraisal can only help you and not hurt you, but here jewelery are not considered an assets really so I feel it would be a waste of time and effort trying to get it valued.

Anything one can liquidate within a year can be considered. Gold is gold. It can't hurt but I wouldn't bother either.
