In the master alloy division, Legor completes the precious metal, often 18 karat gold, and supplies the rest to come up with 1,000, keeping a close eye on mechanical characteristics and vivid colours, as the colours derive from the supplied master alloys.
The fusion of metals and alloys was at the beginning of Legor’s corporate activities back in 1979. “My father and his partner worked for the goldsmith sector, which dominated the region,” says CEO Massimo Poliero.
However, the two entrepreneurs concentrated not only on the artisan production of master alloys for the gold and jewellery industry but also developed ideas on sales and provided market analysis. At that time, this was a completely new approach, which turned into a long-standing success.
Gold is the best known among the precious metals used for jewerly production. Its unique characteristics of color, ductility and rarity make it the most desirable of metals, and the one where most committment by Legor Group Research and Development is concentrated.
Gold jewelry production poses today a large amount of challenges, starting from compliance with international standards, to jewels weight reduction, to the need for improved workability or better scraps re-usability, to high tarnish resistance in lower titles, to name but a few.
