JEWELRY - Gold
 
Around 75 - 80% of the gold produced world wide goes to jewelry production. It is because of the gold's workability, unique beauty, and universal appeal makes the favorite of jewelers all over the world. Gold is dense, soft, shiny and the most malleable and ductile pure metal known. Gold is very easy to work and it can be drawn into wire and can be hammered into thin sheet. Most gold used to make jewelry is an alloy of gold with one or more other metals such as copper, silver, nickel or palladium and a tiny percentage of titanium. Gold is generally used for necklaces, pendants, bracelets, bangles, rings and earrings.
 
 
Other than jewelry production gold is used for Industries and investment by coins and bars, exchange traded gold, gold accounts, gold certificates, and gold oriented funds and so on. Gold's purity is measured in karats. Pure gold is known as 24 karat gold and is marked with "24K".
