German term or phrase: Federgoldlegierung
The material for making a jewellery part - goldlegierung translates as gold alloy, but I am not sure what how Federgold applies.
Thanks for any help

English translation:Gold Spring Alloy / Spring Gold Alloy ?????
Explanation:
I think we are working on part of the same document. My section mentions Goldlegierung (gold alloy) on its own and later in another document Feder (spring) is used as part of the earring clasp.
This led me to search for either Spring Gold Alloy or Gold Spring Alloy. Unfortunately, I found both at the following websites but I am not sure whether Feder translates as Spring in this context or not:

hooverandstrong.com/products/millprod/wire.htm

These sites mention Gold Spring Alloy:

Explanation:
Mary,
To provide an answer, one would definitely need more context, i.e. what type of jewelry. An Internet search revealed nothing, and my dictionaries have nothing to offer. The only thing I can think of is that the Feder is a piece of a clasp (as in Federverschluss)for a necklace or bracelet. Hopefully, this might help you.
Good luck!
