"My wife loves precious metals."

Translation:Má žena miluje drahé kovy.

September 4, 2018



'Precious' can also mean 'vzácný', this should be accepted.


"Vzácný" is more akin to "rare" and is less common in this context. Drahé kovy is a technical or scientific term.

But the corpus shows that vzácné kovy is used as well but be aware it can well mean different elements like cobalt or lithium. I will add it for this reason. NOT because precious means vzácný, but because one can find enough occurrences of "vzácné kovy" with the meaning of gold, silver, platinum...


Ah ok, I understand, and I didn't know about that specific terminus. Thanks!
