  2. 2. A “Problem” with Pure GoldA “Problem” with Pure Gold • Pure gold (24k) is rarely used in jewelry because it is very soft and easy to damage with everyday wear. • Luckily, jewelers can lower the purity of the gold they intend to work with by alloying it with another metal. – Gold alloys are stronger, cheaper, and can give the jeweler more artistic freedom. • The alloying process often changes gold’s striking yellow color into something else entirely. 2013 © Manhattan Gold & Silver2013 © Manhattan Gold & Silver www.mgsrefining.com | 212-398-1454www.mgsrefining.com | 212-398-1454
