Q: What does it mean 18k gold?


A: It´s 18 carat gold of pureness made especially for jewelry. It ´s composed of 75% pure gold and 25% metal alloy. ROMMANEL applies three layers of gold in its jewelry, two of them 18K gold and the last one, the flash, of 22K gold (composed of 92% pure gold and 8% metal alloy). This gives ROMMANEL jewelry a thicker layer of gold, assuring a fine finishing, similar to the solid gold jewelry.
