I love this video, so simple and natural:
The process of making a 24k gold ring manually in China

Of course, we can't compare with the design and the modern tools of Menē: :wink:
The Menē process of making 24k gold jewelry

But it shows how easy to craft and popular is pure gold in Asia. I will try this at home :smile:

    Nice video @GoldNRoll
    What was the process at the very end when he was washing the rings?
    It was like he had a deburring tool or something.

    @IrishGuy It's basic washing and polishing to make it look clean and shiny:

    "1. Mix a bit of dish detergent in warm, not hot, water.
    2. Add a few drops of ammonia.
    3. Carefully brush with a new, baby-size soft toothbrush.
    4. Place in lukewarm water to rinse.
    5. Air dry or carefully towel-dry with paper towel or regular cloth.
    Remember: gold is a soft metal. Be gentle during the brushing and drying processes."

    This guy was just using a more sophisticated tool than the soft toothbrush for polyshing
