14k White gold alloys


#1

My brother passed along this question from a friend in NZ

“Hey can you get your brother to ask around if there is anybody
using a 14k white gold casting alloy that’s not too hard and not too
yellow and doesn’t need rhodium plating and doesn’t have too much
nickel that it’s too hard to bend.”

My favorite is the Paladium Alloy that Hoover and Strong offers.
Nice color, more pliable than the nickel alloy.

I have been using United Precious Metals #930 white alloy for 7or 8
years. It is a polished steel white color, which I prefer to the
Rhodium, and is very malleable. I use it to cast and then use the
casting button for making wire and sheet stock. I melt it several
times and have never had it get brittle. It is white gold and does
work harden quickly and does get seriously hard when work hardened. I
also use it to Pave diamonds. It is the best all around white alloy
I have ever used and every jeweler I give a sample to ends up using
it also. United Precious metals 2781 Townline Rd Alden NY 14004

ask for Dave Zimmer. They are also very helpful and knowledgeable
folks. ( usual disclaimer goes here). Frank Goss

Hi Rick; Check with Hoover and Strong. I saw an ad in AJM magazine
describing a new paladium white casting alloy they offer in 14K and
18K that fits your criteria. Can’t remember the number, but if you
call them and describe what you’re looking for, I’m sure they’ll
steer you in the right direction. Here’s their number: 1-800-759-9997
