Thai Gold 22in long chain, 15.2 gr of 23k gold.
Thai Gold is especially appealing as it contains almost pure gold- 965 parts of 1000 are gold, the rest is silver. Unlike gold alloys used in the west it posses rich golden colour that makes it so attractive. Due to the low manufacturing costs it offers excellent value for money and is traditionally used by Thai people to store value. When buying chain please remember that every metal alloy posses different hardness and thus accesories that are in direct contact with each other, like a chain and pendant should be made from the same alloy. In Thai jewellery pendants are usually hung on a chain clasp, which is especially designed for that purpose.

Gold is a chemical element with Au symbol that comes from Latin aurum, which translates as a glow of a sunrise. It is a soft malleable and ductile metal with a bright yellow colour and high luster. Its density is 19.30 g·cm−3 and it is one of least reactive elements known, immune to oxidisation and most acids. It can be dissolved by aqua regia, a nitro-hydrochloric acid, alkaline solutions of cyanide and by mercury, it is insoluble in nitric acid that dissolves silver and other basic metals which is a base of gold “acid test”.
A combination of an attractive look , rarity and chemical resistance is what made gold so desirable for ornamental and jewellery purposes, which in turn made it a perfect medium to store value. At present the consumption of new mined gold is about 50% into jewellery, 40% into investment and 10% into industrial uses ( electronics, dentistry etc.).
