Most Popular Colors for Fine Gold Jewelry

June 22, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 222

When the word "gold" is mentioned, the image that most likely pops in your head is yellow gold jewelry, but this isn't the only color of gold jewelry out there - the fine metal comes in a wide variety of colors. Read on to learn more about the most popular colors for fine gold jewelry.

White Gold

Although it may look like silver or platinum to some, white gold is actually karat gold alloys with a whitish tinge. The term white gold actually includes gold that is tinted brown, pale yellow, light grey, and very pale rose, however these off-white colors are usually hidden with rhodium plating, a white, reflective metal that provides an excellent protective coating. Pure white gold without the rhodium plating is created using a gold-nickel alloy, however nickel is highly allergenic (about one in eight people experience a reaction to nickel), so most jewelry manufacturers no longer make gold- nickel alloys. If you are allergic to nickel you will definitely want to avoid older pieces of white gold jewelry as it is most likely made with nickel.

White gold jewelry is ideal for men and women who want durability without the yellow color. Many types of jewelry are made from white gold, including earrings, engagement rings, wedding rings, and bridal bracelets. It looks especially nice with diamonds and sapphires.

Yellow Gold

If gold is 100% pure, or 24 karat (24K), it is a bright yellow color or the traditional golden color most people think of when they hear the word. The yellow version is very malleable, making it incredibly versatile and ideal for nearly any type of jewelry.

Yellow looks especially nice on people with warm skin tones, but can make people with cool skin tones look pale or washed out. It can be paired with silver for a ying-yang-like effect, or can be worn on its own for a stunning visual display, and looks particularly good with emeralds.

Pink, Rose and Red Gold

In its purest form, gold is soft and scratches easily, so it is generally alloyed with base metals such as copper to give it additional strength. Rose, red, and pink gold are all copper alloys widely used for specialized jewelry - the higher the copper content within the alloy, the more red it looks. The highest karat version of rose gold is referred to as crown gold, and is 22 karats. Rose, red, and pink gold pairs well with diamonds, as well as pink sapphires and rubies.

Tacori exudes classic elegance with modern inspiration and has created some of the world's most highly regarded and exquisite jewelry. They are the leader for designer engagement rings, diamond rings, wedding bands, wedding ring sets, and stunning fine gold jewelry pieces.
