18k Yellow Gold Pendant
- Gold, also called golden, is one of a variety of orange-yellow color blends used to give the impression of the color of the element gold.
- While pure gold is yellow in color, colored gold can be developed into various colors. These colors are generally obtained by alloying gold with other elements in various proportions.
- The most popular gold alloy. An alloy of gold, silver, copper, and often zinc.
- an adornment that hangs from a piece of jewelry (necklace or earring)
- pendent: held from above; "a pendant bunch of grapes"
- chandelier: branched lighting fixture; often ornate; hangs from the ceiling
- Hanging downward; pendent
- The carat (abbreviation ct or kt) is a measure of the purity of gold alloys. In the United States and Canada, the spelling karat is used.
A pendant from the fold formed series.
I have fold formed sterling silver, 18K yellow gold and pure gold. The physical properities of these metals are very different. Sterling silver is fluid and can yield spectacular volumes. 18K yellow gold work hardens quickly and must be annealed frequently during the folding, milling and unfolding. 24K gold does work harden to some extent. Considering the softness of pure gold, the increased hardness can be an advantage during unfolding.
Inspired by history and ancient art
I made this unique bold pendant. The "coin" features a crusaders' cross, which I carved in wax and then cast in recycled sterling silver.
This one-of-a-kind custom gift is from parents to their son, incorporating precious metal from some of their old jewelry. The Latin message on the back means "be not afraid".
Hand set in a bezel, which I sculpted from 18K royal yellow gold, it hangs elegantly on a blackened solid sterling silver chain.
