Hallmark 750 gold
This unique piece had a previous life in Italy.

The story: 18-carat gold is characterized by the presence of 750 grams of gold per 1000 grams of precious metal. Silver, copper and palladium complete this alloy in different proportions depending on the desired color. This ratio, which has become the standard for gold jewelry in France and Italy, allows a perfect balance between malleability of the material, which can thus be worked according to sophisticated patterns, and resistance. Once cooled, the jewel is indeed more resistant than a 24-carat gold jewel, less flexible and less prone to scratches.
