Fineness of Gold- Since fine (pure) gold is too soft for most uses, it is alloyed with other metals to achieve a desired hardness. During this process the colour, hardness, malleability and melting point can also be altered. Silver and copper are the two most common additives, but many other metals can be used. The relative amount of gold in an alloy is called the karat. This word signifies proportion and should not be confused with carat, which is a unit of weight.

Always great service, knowledge and care go into every job.

We feel like friends and they always care about us. When I bought a bracelet, Luc put it on my wrist, looked into my eyes, and said "May you always wear this in good health"
