I know there was a discussion recently about annealing red gold,
which interested me because I’m going to have to draw down some red
I would also like to know if 18K red behaves like 9K red in other
ways (and I know this is probably a how long is a piece of string).
Cookson’s (I’m in the UK) doesn’t list the melting point of their 9K
red, but does list the 18K red melting range as 875 - 900 degrees C.
I’ve been asked to make one of these:
in 18K and agreed straight away; but before I get started on what’s
potentially a huge expensive mess if I get it wrong I would love
some advice from Orchid!
thanks so much!
