About 15ct Gold
15ct gold is renowned for its buttery marigold allure, it is more resilient and harder than 18ct or 22ct gold and of course contains more pure gold than 9ct. Because of this it was the choice of most Victorian jewellers. Jewellery items made from antique 15ct gold are highly sought after because of their gold purity and heirloom quality.
