I have a customer who has asked for vanilla gold. I have not heard
the term used before. I wanted to ask the collective wisdom here.
Have you heard of this? Can you tell everyone here more about it? My
customer describes it as…
new alloy, vanilla gold, and that it was not palladium or
rhodium, that it was something new that would never yellow.
However, after hearing about this, I have been trying to find
out anything I can about it. So far, one other goldsmith has
said that it has no nickel in it and that it does contain some
palladium but a lot less and is a very soft alloy so that its
easy to do intricate work but scratches and dents really
easily. I wish to find out as much about this as I can. I feel
it is best to be educated about it
