Since the dawn of civilization, from Egyptians to the Inca, gold has had a particular place in the hearts of mankind, both in terms of its intrinsic worth and its symbolic significance.

Gold has also been used as a medium of commerce, a store of wealth, and as a precious piece of jewellery and other items throughout history.

Finally, gold’s worth is a social construction: it is precious because we all agree that it has been and will continue to be useful in the future.

Despite this, gold’s glossy and metallic properties, as well as its relative rarity and difficulty in mining, have all contributed to the view of gold as a precious commodity in the eyes of the public.

Although silver may be polished & textured in a variety of ways to catch the light as well as the eye, there is no metal that compares to gold in terms of brilliance. In contrast to other elements, gold naturally contains a delicate rainbow of distinct and lovely hues that are unique to it. The atoms in gold are really heavier than the atoms in silver as well as other metals because gold is a heavier metal. It is because of this characteristic that the electrons travel more quickly, which in turn enables for part of the light to also be absorbed into the gold—a technique that was made possible by Einstein’s theory of relativity.
