Gold jewelry is something to enjoy now and think about passing down to future generations. While styles and fashion may change, gold jewelry stands the test of time. Explore various types of gold jewelry and modern gold jewelry.
How Many Shades of Gold Are There?From yellow, white, rose and various shades in between, there are many different shades of gold. Depending on the type of gold you have, there may be something added to the gold to enhance its color. For example, artisans add rhodium to certain jewelry styles to help strengthen or protect the metal. In other cases, they add copper and silver to gold to give it different color varieties.
When reading inscriptions on gold jewelry, higher numbers indicate a more pure gold. For example, 22K gold may not have much else added to it. 18K gold usually has a bit of copper and silver added. If the gold appears darker, it may have more copper, but if it appears lighter, it may have more silver or rhodium added.
Gold is naturally very soft and could break easily. Adding other metals to gold to make jewelry makes it more durable and more affordable.
