Precious metals are the collective term used to describe a variety of valuable metals including gold, platinum and silver.
These metals are deemed precious due to their rarity as well as their distinct properties. In jewellery-making, gold is further divided into colour varieties such as yellow gold, rose gold and white gold.
Each metal has its own features that may make it better suited to a specific application in jewellery design.
