Paʻu o le Platini i Cambodia

auro siliva

According to what we noted during our study, there is no real platinum jewelry in Cambodia. Cambodian people use wrongly the word “Platinum” or “Platine” to describe an alloy of metal containing a certain percentage of gold.

Sa matou faatauina mai mea teuteu i le kapini i aai eseese ma le tele o ituaiga faleoloa e fuafua lelei ai pe o le a le mea uamea. Na matou faʻalogologo foi i tagata faatau taitasi ina ia malamalama ia latou faʻamatalaga, ma o iʻuga nei matou te mauaina.

O fuainumera tatou te maua o avega ma o faʻamatalaga e sili atu ona saʻo pe a mafai. Ae ui i lea, o taunuuga o la matou suʻesuʻega e le fetaui ma taunuʻuga uma a le au faʻatau oloa, atonu e iai ni tuusaunoaga.

O le a le mea moni moni?

O le eletise moni o se mea tuinanau, ductile, ma maʻagofie, siliva paʻepaʻe. Platinum e sili atu lectile nai lo le auro, siliva po o le kopa, o le mea lea o le sili atu lectile o metale mama, ae e le sili atu le taua nai lo le auro.

Platinum o se elemene elemene faatasi ai ma le faailoga Pt ma le numera atomic 78.

Until now, we have never found real platinum jewelry in any jewelry shop in Cambodia. But that does not mean it’s impossible to find

Gold vs Platinum

Cambodian people use the word “Meas” only to talk about pure gold. But pure gold is too soft for jewellery applications.

If a jewel is made with a gold alloy mix with other metals, it is not considered as “Meas”, but as “platinum”.
Noone knows the true origin of the use of the name “Platine”, but we suppose that it is a derivative of the French word “Plaqué” or English word “Plated”, which means that a jewelry in Cambodia is covered with a precious metal, while there is a cheaper metal inside. We suppose that the meaning had change over time.
Actualy, cambodians use the name of French origin “Chromé” to talk about plated jewelry.

Faʻalogologo i faʻamatalaga a le au faʻatau, o le tulaga maualuga o le laina elemene numera 3. O le a le uiga o le 3 / 10 o le auro, poʻo le 30% o le auro, poʻo le 300 / 1000 o auro.

O le mea moni, o a matou suʻega uma na mafua ai ona itiiti ifo i le 30% auro i nei maataua, pei ona e vaai i lalo, o le averesi o le 25.73%. E mafai ona eseese lenei mea i nai pasene i le va o faleoloa eseese, ma o le tele o pasene e ese mai i mea taugata mai le faleoloa e tasi.

O le pasene o auro e tutusa lava i le va o le numera 5 ma le 7, ae o le lanu o le uʻamea e ese. O le mea moni, e ala i le suia o vaega o le 'apamemea, siliva ma le zinc, le lanu o le suiga o uamea.

O le manaʻoga e maualalo mo le numera eletise 5 ma le 7. E seasea ona faatau atu oloa i Kamupodia. E masani lava ona tatau ai ona faʻatonuina ina ia faʻataʻitaʻi e le au teu oloa mea sili ona lelei mo le tagata faʻatau.

Palemene numera 10

auro

Platinum numera 10 o le mama auro, talu ai e tatau ona avea o 10/10 auro, po o le 100% o auro, po o le 1000/1000 o auro.

But in fact, platinum number 10 doesn’t exist, because in that case, pure gold is named as “Meas”.

Cambodia vs tulaga faʻavaomalo

Pe a faatusatusa i tulaga faataatitia faavaomalo, o le platinum Cambodia e tutusa ma le auro mumu. O le alloy o loʻo aofia ai le tele o le 'apamemea. O le auala aupito taugofie foi e fai ai le auro, aua o le siliva e sili atu ona taugofie nai lo isi metala o loʻo faʻaaogaina i mea auro.
Yellow yellow o tulaga faavaomalo e aofia ai le itiiti ifo o le paʻu paʻu ae sili atu le siliva nai lo le auro mumu.
Rose gold o se tagata faufautua i le va o le samasama auro ma le auro mumu, o lea e sili atu le paʻu nai lo le auro samasama, ae itiiti le paʻu nai lo le auro mumu.

O faʻamatalaga nei e mafai ona eseese mai le tasi i le isi faleoloa.

E foliga mai o loʻo iloa e nisi o teu oloa a Kemupotia e le lelei o latou aloalo ma e iai foʻi tulaga faʻavaomalo.

We heard about “Meas Barang”, “Meas Italy”, “Platine 18” ..
O nei igoa uma atonu ei ai uiga eseese. Ma o tagata e faatau atu e tofu i latou ma se faʻamatalaga eseese.

“Meas Barang” means foreign gold
“Meas Italy” means italian gold
“Platine 18” means 18K gold

But from what we heard, these names sometimes describe a quality of metal, sometimes the quality of jeweler’s work. As for platinum number 18, it doesn’t make sense in comparison with other numbers since it would mean that it is 180% pure gold.
