Now concerning the South African Gold Company (stamped) braclet in bar form. What a suitable gift from South Africa!
Gold has long been the basis for South Africa's relative prosperity and according to facts in the history of South Africa, it is the largest producer of gold by far in the world!
If you know a few little facts about diamonds you will no doubt be aware that the first South African gold rush followed the first diamond strikes by only a few years.
According to South Africa history, gold mining started in earnest in 1887, and the new township of Johannesburg South Africa, began to fill with settlers.
The first results were astonishing, and by the end of the year it was clear that the Rand mines were fantastically rich.
Many of the Kimberley diamond millionaires moved to new headquarters in Johannesburg South Africa, which quickly became the largest city in southern Africa, a position it still holds today.
At least half a million South Africans, including dependents and suppliers, rely on gold mining.
It has the world's deepest mine, 3585 m below surface at the East Rand mine. The Freegold mine, owned by Anglo American, was until recently the world's most productive gold mine at 115 tonnes a year; and Driefontein Consolidated has produced more than any other gold mine, at 2292 tonnes.
The bracelet gift may have no standard mark to attest gold caratage but this does NOT however mean the bracelet is not gold.
You can test the metal yourself for gold and gold composition with gold testing equipment. There are a couple of gold testers available for purchase in the Amazon shop on the jewelry products page.
Alternatively, you can take the bracelet to your local jewelry for him to ascertain gold composition.
