18 CARAT GOLD: A TREASURE FUSED IN ART

Gold, the ultimate symbol of wealth and beauty, has been the precious metal par excellence for thousands of years. Its purity, its radiance and its power of seduction are indisputable. Among the different shades of this precious metal, 18 carat gold shines as one of the most sought after. But how do we manage to create this gold alloy which combines purity and robustness?

The Melting Crucible: Where Gold Comes to Life

The process of making 18k gold begins with melting. Pure gold (24 carats) is melted in a crucible heated to extremely high temperatures. This crucible becomes the magic cauldron where liquid gold takes shape.

18k gold is not 100% pure. It is made of 75% pure gold and 25% other metals, usually silver and copper. These added metals give the alloy increased strength and durability without compromising its natural shine

The Stéphane Artero jewelry store is much more than just a jewelry store, it is a real jewelry store where Stéphane Artero himself, in person, creates each piece of jewelry.
