*Granulation is an ancient decorative element that was first practiced about 5,000 years ago by the Sumerians. Granules are formed by heating a tiny piece of 22 karat yellow gold until it forms into a sphere shape. It is one of the most complex jewelry techniques to master as one second too long with the torch, and you end up with a pool of molten gold!
