The trinkets come in different shades of pink, yellow, rose, white and purple gold. Most of the customers seem to be Indians who are buying dowry material while trying to beat the high taxes on gold sold in India.

Jeff,

I seem to recall reading that purple gold is brittle and can shatter due to its alloy. Still, it would be kind of cool to get a piece of jewelry with intertwined rings or strands of pink, yellow, rose, white, and purple gold. All kinds of gold are beautiful to me because of the lustre.

How do people from India get their dowry gold back into India without paying some sort of customs duty?
