A BIG thank you from Team AMJ!
We say goodbye for now to Gallery Manager Lucy Thompson (right), who leaves us for a year to start her new life as a mum. We wish her all the best and can't wait to welcome her back!
ANNE MORGAN JEWELLERY'S FOURTH BIRTHDAY!
Friday 18th October 2019, 6-9PM
Join us on Friday 18th October from 6-9pm at our Glebe Street gallery to celebrate 4 years of Anne Morgan Jewellery.
This year we share our birthday with the Periodic Table of Elements, so we’re celebrating those that go into the process of making your jewellery by hand.
Come along and see our beautiful window display that honours 150 years of the Periodic Table, and treat yourself to a piece of handmade jewellery, created using so many of the elements featured.
As a special thank you for all your continued support and custom, we are offering 10% off all jewellery purchased on the night, and 20% off jewellery from Anne's collections (excluding orders and commissions).
Plus, we’ll be on hand to fill your glass with Prosecco. Alcohol is a compound worth celebrating too, right?!
And Now for the Science...
In its purest form, it is a bright, slightly reddish yellow, dense, soft, malleable, and ductile metal.
Because of the softness of pure (24ct) gold, it is usually alloyed with base metals for use in jewellery, altering its hardness and ductility, melting point, colour and other properties. Alloys with lower carat rating, typically 22ct (hallmarked at 916 which is 91.6% fine gold content), 18ct (750 or 75%), 14ct (585 or 58.5%) or 9ct (375 or 37.5%), contain higher percentages of copper or other base metals or silver or palladium in the alloy.
18ct Rose gold is usually made up of 75% gold and 25% copper giving it a lovely red colour.
