First in this edition. This book introduces the fascinating subject of gold, silver and the platinum-group metals, both for those who are seeking a general insight into the subject as well as for jewellers, gold- and silversmiths and students taking courses in jewellery and decorative metalware. After a review of the historical importance and present-day relevance and usage of the precious metals, four chapters are devoted to their occurrence, extraction and properties. Some background information on assessment of properties and their meaning is given in order that readers may appreciate the significance of the properties quoted. Much of the remainder of the book covers the use of the precious metals for jewellery and decorative metalware.
