the gold s
It glitters, it glows, it gleams. From the earliest of times, gold has captured the imagination of countless
civilizations around the globe. Egyptians, Mayans, Incans, and...New Yorkers have all ogled the burnished patina
of this magnificent metal. Whether it comes in the form of a hand-hammered locket, a chunk of a bangle, or
a delicate, intricate chain, gold delivers a warmth and radiance unmatched by any other metal. Most often
fabricated with alloys that render it gloriously buttery, it can also sport hues of rose, green, peach, green, or even
black. Here, homage to splendid gold, in its countless forms that we love the best—jewelry. By Ruth J. Katz
