Is Italian gold good?

Yes, Italian gold is good. There may be jewelry pieces that are sold at 14 karats. But most Italian jewelry tends to be sold as 18 karat/750+. Even more attractive than the amount of gold in each jewelry piece are the high production and design standards. Italian jewelry is considered to incorporate the finest of classical designs.

One reason for the high level of expertise in jewelry working is its historic concentration in the specialty areas of Campania, Lombardy, Tuscany, and Veneto. There, the expertise often is passed on through generations of artisan families. In fact, the attention to each stage in the processing of precious metals is so meticulous and draws on such longstanding traditions that Italy's economy counts on its solid revenues from gold, platinum and silver jewelry sales.
