Gold

Generally, the basic metals added to pure gold, are silver and copper. Once made into an alloy, gold is known by its karat purity, with which many people are familiar: 10k, 14k, 18k, or 22k. Pure gold is 24 karat. The closer the number is to 24k, the higher the gold content.

Gold color may also be controlled through alloying. Pure (24 karat) gold is a deep yellow color (an orange shade of yellow) and is soft and very malleable. The colored karat gold alloys range in gold content from 8 to 22 karats (33.3% at 91.6% gold). 14 to 22 karats in the US and can be obtained in a range of color shades: green (actually greenish-yellow), pale yellow, yellow, deep yellow, pink/rose, red, and even purple.

Apart from copper, all other alloying metals will tend to whiten the gold color to produce ‘white’ gold. Adding white metals to gold will bleach its color. In practice, nickel and palladium (and also platinum) are strong bleachers of gold; silver and zinc are moderate bleachers, and all others are moderate or weak in effect.

All alloys have different mechanical properties such as strength, hardness and malleability (ductility) and some alloys may be heat-treated to maximize strength and hardness. Zinc and silicon are added to deoxidize the gold, iridium and cobalt refine its grain, and nickel is added for strength.

In addition to affecting its physical properties, alloying gold generally increases its strength and hardness with some reduction in malleability.

 


Rubies

To the ancients, ruby was known as “the king of gems”. To some it was a representation of the sun. To others it represented integrity, devotion, happiness, healing, courage, romance, generosity, inspiration, and prosperity. According to legend, warriors implanted rubies under their skin to bring valor in battle. As a talisman, ruby would warn its owner against danger and disaster. Ground to a fine powder and placed on the tongue, it was believed by some ancient cultures to cure blood diseases, stop bleeding, ensure good health, bring peace, and treat indigestion.

In England, it was used for coronation rings and to this day enjoys popularity among royalty. Fergie, the Duchess of York received a ruby engagement ring from Prince Andrew.

The red aura of rubies makes them appear bigger than they really are. Rubies are the scarcest of all gemstones and command extremely high prices. Their average size is also generally less than any other gemstone’s. Today, rubies have numerous applications: as styluses in turntables, as tiny bearings in expensive wristwatches, and in rod form, they form a crucial component at the laser’s core.

Ruby is the birthstone of July. Since Ruby represents romance and devotion, it is an excellent choice for an engagement ring. It is the traditional wedding anniversary gift for a couple’s 15th and 40th year.

Diamonds

Diamond is the hardest natural substance on earth, but if placed in an oven at 1405 degrees Fahrenheit (763 degrees Celsius), it will vanish. Only a small amount of carbon dioxide will have been released. Diamonds are formed over a period of a billion or more years deep within the earth’s crust – about 90 miles (150km) below the surface – and are pushed to the surface by volcanoes. Most diamonds are found in volcanic rock, called Kimberlite, or in the sea, having been carried away by rivers after they were pushed to the surface. A diamond is 58 times harder than the next hardest mineral on earth, corundum, from which rubies and sapphires are formed.

It was only during the 15th century when it was discovered that the only way to cut diamonds was with other diamonds. Still, diamonds are brittle; if hit hard with a hammer, they will shatter.

Not all diamonds are white. Impurities lend diamonds a hue of blue, red, orange, yellow, green and even black. A green diamond is the rarest. Diamond, however, is not the rarest gemstone. That title goes to a pure red ruby. Diamonds actually are found in fair abundance; thousands are mined every year. 80% of them are not suitable for jewelry and are used in industry. The remainder, of higher clarity, are cut for the jewelry trade and end up in jewelry stores.
