A buyers guide: Gold Jewelery

Jewellery is a timeless accessory that can be treasured for generations, but with so many different types of metals, it can be overwhelming to choose the right one for you. In this buying guide, we’ll discuss the most common jewellery metal types and their unique properties so you can make an informed decision.

First, let’s start with gold. Gold is a popular choice for jewellery because of its durability and timeless appeal. Pure gold is too soft for jewellery, so it is typically mixed with other metals to create a stronger alloy. The karat weight indicates how much pure gold is in the piece, with 24 karat being 100% pure gold. 14 karat gold is a popular choice for jewelry because it is strong enough to withstand everyday wear and tear, while still containing a high percentage of gold. Our jewellery is all 14 karat gold and comes in a variety of colours, including white, yellow and rose gold. Each coloured gold has its own unique properties and characteristics, here is a quick overview of these.

White gold is created by mixing yellow gold with other metals, such as nickel or palladium, to create a silver-coloured alloy. This process also makes the gold more durable and scratch-resistant than pure gold. White gold is a popular choice as it has a classic and timeless look.

Yellow gold is the most traditional and classic choice for gold jewellery. It has a warm, rich colour that is often associated with luxury and wealth. Yellow gold is typically mixed with copper and silver to create an alloy that is durable enough for everyday wear. It is a popular choice for rings, necklaces, and bracelets.

Rose gold, also known as pink gold, has become increasingly popular in recent years. It is created by mixing yellow gold with copper to create a pinkish hue. The more copper that is added, the redder the gold becomes. Rose gold has a romantic and feminine look that is perfect for delicate pieces of jewellery.

When choosing between white, yellow, and rose gold, it ultimately comes down to personal preference. Each colour has its own unique style and beauty, so choose the one that speaks to you the most. When choosing a jewellery metal type, consider your personal style, budget, and the durability you need for your lifestyle. Your piece of jewellery is sure to be a cherished accessory for years to come.
