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 complement this alloy in different proportions depending on the desired color. This ratio, which has become the standard for gold jewelry in France, allows a perfect balance between the malleability of the material that can be worked according to sophisticated patterns, and its resistance. Once cooled, the jewel is indeed more resistant than a 24-carat gold jewel, less flexible and less prone to scratches.
