Evening all An associate thinks these questions were answered before
but I can’t recall seeing the questions or answers so if this is a
repeat please be kind.
I recently saw a tiara of great beauty and was told that the wire work
was silver plated gold. The tiara was made about 1900.
Questions: like why cover gold which does not tarnish as silver does
except at the stone settings? like why not use white gold if the
silver color is needed or was it before white gold was in use? like
why not use platinum or was it before platinum was in use? like when
was platinum first used in jewelry? like when was white gold fist used
The tiara was seen at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas.
Thanks, Bill in Vista
