What is better white or yellow gold?

User Avatar
Well, White gold never exist; in natural way, only in electron is silver and yellow gold in the mine together is in natural way like yellow-silver color. To create Pure solid white Gold formula alloy's depends on what kind of precious metals they use inside. In the different formula composition the Precious metal alloys have better use; for example: Rhodium Plated in the top of yellow Gold is not White gold... it is yellow Gold with Rhodium Plate... Simply it is a lie of the jewelry industry, that is white Gold under a false Pretension .The People loss million and Billions of dollars for years in the Jewelry Plate yellow Gold with Rhodium; and the consumer pays to the jewelry industry's so that the Jewelry be re-plated with Rhodium every year, because the jewelry looses the color in a year. The solution is to look in the past ,in 1920 when your Grandmother used rings that inside and outside is Pure color solid White Gold formula alloys ! In today the economy that we live in all jewelry stores closes go out of Business because Yellow Gold controls the Market Price and lie to People to use only yellow gold with Rhodium to create artificial color to call white gold;when it is not better than pure solid formula white Gold alloy's. Yellow Gold 10k-14k 18k 22k alloys with Rhodium costs more, that Real pure solid white Gold formula alloys and this White gold formula is much Better that yellow gold. The industry protect the formula,of pure solid white gold and guarantees the Jewelry for life time for broken or loss of white color. You do not need yellow Gold and Rhodium to make Real Pure solid white gold formula alloy's to made jewelry . Sincerely , see webpages Living Life Enterprises Presents.

How much is a gram of gold worth?

User Avatar
To find the value of a gram of gold: You must first find the spot price of gold (per troy ounce) in your country, then convert to grams. Thus, if the spot price of gold is $900 per troy ounce and there are about 31.10 grams in a troy ounce, then the math is follows: $900 x 1 ounce/31.10 grams = $28.94/gram To find the value of jewelry: You need to know the karats (weight) of actual gold in the jewelry. 24kt gold is the highest gold karat available and this is basically pure gold. 14kt and 18kt are common in the US, while 22kt gold is sold overseas. If you buy an 18kt piece of jewelry, this means that this jewelry is actually only 75% gold. The remaining 25% is other metals. So if you have 1 gram of 18kt gold jewelry, you must multiply the price per gram x percentage of gold to find the actual price in grams. $28.94 x .75 = $21.71/gram. Other factors will also affect the ultimate price, such as workmanship, gemstones, etc. A gram of gold weighs approximately the same as a dollar bill and at today's price is valued at $100. These days, there are online calculators available that calculate the true current value of your gold.

How do you separate brass dust from gold dust?

User Avatar
Burn the dust at 650c temperture. Sieve it & remove iron by magnet. //there should be no iron from brass!// Take 1 kg fine dust in 5 lit. glass beaker. add 1.5 lit aqua regia (1part hno3 & 3part hcl) in it very slowly. boil the solution upto 30 min. then cool the solution amp;& then filter by using buffner funnel. add urea water & feso4 into your filtered solution till green colour reaches dark black colour. settle the solution for1hr then decant the solution in other drum. remove the brown powder in beaker. wash it very well with hcl & then wash with hot water till ph-paper does not change.then dry that powder on heater slowly & melt at 1064c in melting furnace. You could "pan" the dust to separate the less dense brass from the denser gold. If the dust particles are about the same size use threshing methods by pouring (slowly) the dust in front of a fan, the brass will be blown further than the gold.
