Gold jewellery was used as a store of value since the ancient times. All gold there is, was created in the explosions of massive stars at the end of their lives. It is therefore very rare. Gold constitutes only a tiny percentage of matter that formed our planet and most of it is trapped deep within the earth.
Gold has very attractive colour and a range of properties that make it easy to work with for ornamental purposes. It is one of the least reactive metals known to us. It does not oxidise, which means it will not rust or form any sort of patina. That’s why Gold jewellery is a perfect choice if you desire a timeless heirloom, that you can pass on to your children. Pure Gold is however soft and usually mixed with other metals to increase its durability. The resulting purity of gold alloy is traditionally indicated by “k” that stands for karat. The scale goes to 24k, which is 100% pure and drops accordingly, with 18k being 75% and 12k being 50% pure.
Each jewel available to you here is clearly described as to the gold purity, weight and dimensions. Please note that our pictures are large and can show minute scratches that are not visible to the naked eye.
