Gold, Italian Love
Gold has truly been the Italians’ love for millennia. Nearly 3,000 years ago, they started making gold jewelry in Tuscany and there has been no looking back. Over the years the crafty goldsmiths of Italy perfected their art and finally succeeded in producing breathtakingly beautiful jewelry with amazing craftsmanship and fine gold quality. And so, it has remained the same. Italy now proudly processes and uses 500 tons of fine gold each year. It provides employment for over 40,000 people in the gold sector where almost 10,000 related companies work.
Italy mostly uses 18 carats gold. The carat is the unit to measure gold content in gold alloys. Gold is used in the alloy form as pure gold is too soft and fragile to be used in its pure form. It has to be combined chemically with other metal bases like copper, nickel and silver etc to form gold alloys. 24 carats is considered to be pure gold.
Earrings are a kind of jewelry worn in the ear. Mostly they are worn in the ear lobe, the lower part of the ear, but they can be worn in many different parts of the ear, particularly in the cartilage area. Usually women wear earrings but these days an increased number of men also proudly wear them. Nine is the maximum number any one can safely pierce his/her ears.
