The pure 24 Karat yellow gold is alloyed with exact percentages of other metals to achieve a more durable karat quality of 10K, 12K or 14K, and used for ring shanks and the base of other items. The different colors of gold used for leaves and other details are made when the pure 24 Karat yellow gold is alloyed with copper to achieve the traditional 12 karat pink (or red) gold, and the gold is combined silver to create the 12 karat green. The resulting gold bars are then readied for rolling.
