COPPER, SILVER AND GOLD: OUR METALS

The metals that we use in our creations are the very purest. The warmth of copper, the timeless appeal of silver and the sumptuousness of gold: we work them together, synergistically, in such a way that the atoms of which they are composed meld into a single molecule.

COPPER
Known since ancient times, copper was the first metal to be utilized by man. The discovery of the other metals could not, in many ways, compete against copper’s innate properties, such as thermal and electrical conductivity. As a result, the metal has survived progress, maintaining its supremacy of use in many sectors right up to the present day.

Copper’s unrivaled properties in the kitchen have long been recognized and documented. Its optimal thermal conductivity of W/(m • K) 392, in contrast with a value of 211 in aluminum and 16 in steel, attests to its primacy among the traditional metals, with the exception of gold and silver, in terms of cooking and food preparation. Copper is also well regarding in the field of sustainable development: it is a natural, reusable and recyclable material.

As a trace element, copper also plays an important role in maintaining balance in our bodies due to countless properties that are recognized by modern medicine.

 
 
 
SILVER
Silver is a precious metal that is also known as a powerful natural antibiotic.
Its medicinal properties have been noted since ancient times, especially its antibacterial and antimicrobial effects. Silver ions react and bind with the enzymes of the cell of the microbe, inhibiting its activity. Thanks to silver’s antibacterial, fungicidal and sanitizing properties and a thermal conductivity of W/(m • K) 420, the metal has a capacity twice that of aluminum and 26 times greater than that of steel.

GOLD
When pure, gold is incorruptible: it does not rust, is eternal, unalterable, homogeneous, a good conductor of heat and electricity, very soft and strikingly pliable. It is without question the most precious metal of all.
