precious metal Gold
has been prized since antiquity, because it is found in its metallic state, does not corrode (it is very durable),
and may be easily shaped.
Also, it is quite beautiful all by itself.
24k (24 carat) gold is pure, but too soft for jewelry.
While 18k gold (75% gold, 25% other metals) is available, 14k (58% gold) is the most common,
and 10k gold is the lowest grade commonly found in jewelry.
The color of gold alloys depends upon the metals used;
paladium and nickel create white gold, copper a red gold, and other colors are possible.
