Casting White Gold | Part One

White gold alloy in 14K (14H) and 18K (18H) white gold, called Brilliant  (please note, available in casting grain only). Jewelers need to be aware that all of these products contain a high amount of NICKEL. These alloys may be slightly more hypoallergenic than its predecessors, but these alloys still have the same problems of all high nickel alloys. They are harder to work, harder to cast and more prone to prong failure. Hoover & Strong promotes 950 palladium as a better option – TruPd is pure, white, precious and strong. 950 palladium is naturally white, needs no Rhodium, is malleable and is similar in cost to 14K gold.
