Facts about Gold Nuggets
Gold nuggets are naturally occurring pieces of gold formed through erosion. Usually they contain 75 to 97 percent gold and the remainder is mostly silver and sometimes they still contain inclusions of quartz. The gold nugget gets whiter in color when the silver content is greater. We value and appreciate the beauty and rarity of gold nuggets. Golpira uses the most exclusive, highest- quality gold nuggets from Papua New Guinea, Australia and/ or South America. Each gold nugget is hand selected for its unique and individual characteristics and natural beauty. They have a very high purity, will be clean and shiny, and will have a consistent gorgeous overall appearance, with a gorgeous color and surface texture.
We don’t manipulate the gold nuggets, so we don’t hammer, shape or even polish them, when used for our precious jewelry. We leave them in their original shape, just as the gold panners found them. We use them as they are in designs that suit them. Each nugget looks different, and therein lies its beauty. Whether it is angular or matt, elongated or rough, round or shiny – no two are alike. Each has its own structure, shape and especially its own energy.
