I’m very excited about the many wonderful alloys and patinas and
other surface treatments being used in fine jewelry now, and I would
like to learn more about them.
Le Vian has been advertising itself as the “Chocolatier” with
beautiful “chocolate” colored diamonds, “chocolate” pearls, and
"chocolate" gold. I congratulate them on a clever campaign, and some
very distinctive and stunning designs.
On page 2 of the new JCK magazine they have an ad for “pink
chocolate”, with a pendant made of pink gold and a dark metal. My
question is, does anyone know what the dark metal is, and how they
achieve that look?
Yes indeed, Orchid rocks!
