Ornamental jewellery

Precious metals are not only attractive, they are also resistant to corrosion or oxidation. More often than not, though, such metals are used in alloys – i.e. mixtures of several metals, when they are made into ornamental jewellery. This unfortunately means that oxidation can occur after all during melting and casting. At Farkas Ékszer goldsmiths in Budapest, air is extracted from the melting furnace and replaced with the inert gas argon to prevent such oxidation. This ensures that the jewellery retains its lustre and shine for a long time to come.
