The right material for every need
This mixture of materials is called an alloy. The base metals are mainly platinum (PT), gold (AU), palladium (PD), silver (AG) and copper (CU). The alloy shows how many parts of the highest quality precious metal are in your piece of jewelry. It is indicated in thousandths. For example, gold 585/- contains 585 parts pure gold for every 1000 alloy parts.
