Our curator Miranda says:
A precious and highly durable metal which comes in different golden hues depending on its purity.
A cool, subdued yellow hue. 58% gold and relatively hard, making it a popular choice for jewellery that lasts a lifetime.
Made of a single precious metal, this piece will never oxidise or discolour and will keep its looks for generations.
The surface has been polished to give it a bright shine. It can always be repolished to regain its shine after wear.
The unit of weight for diamonds, equivalent to 0.2 grams, or about 6.4mm in diameter (slightly smaller than a regular pencil-end eraser)
