Dec 7 ~ Day 341 - Goldsmith's workshop

I wanted to exchange a pair of old bangles for new ones. The jewelry did an instant purity test on the bangles and concluded that the bangles contained only 75% pure gold. I refused to exchange the bangles. He suggested we get the gold tested with the goldsmith next door. We got small piece of the bangle tested and it was almost 84% pure. The lesson learned was, although the jewelers say the ornament is 22k, 92% pure, most of the them use only 85% gold.
This day, last year: Holiday wreath in our building
