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.
Covered in a thin layer of precious metal electrically charged onto a base metal, which will gently wear off with time.
The gold plating on this piece is the thickest used for jewellery and is highly durable. Won't show signs of wear until after 4-5 years.
The most precious and durable base metal. Will not lose its shape, discolour the gold plating on top, or cause allergic reactions.
Brushed surface gives an organic look. Will get more shiny with wear and can be brushed up later to regain its matte look.
