Gold is Best for the Following Jewellery

Gold is one of the most if not yet the most popular choice of metal for jewelries such as rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings and pendant. Both men and women enjoy gold jewellery especially when used for significant occasions like weddings. Gold, like any other metals, has elements necessary to be considered when being purchased.

First, gold carat measures the pureness of gold in a jewellery. A 24 karat gold means pure gold. Despite its purity, this kind of gold is not often used for wedding and engagement rings because they are too soft and lessdurable. An 18, 14, or 9 karat gold is normally used for bands. These ones are mixed with other precious metals like silver and copper.

Gold, being malleable by nature, would create a sturdy jewellery with lesser proportion of gold but it would also mean that the jewellery will be of lesser value. So what types of jewellery are suitable for the different karat gold? Here’s a quick list

9 karat. men’s engagement ring, men’s wedding ring, ladies and men’s dress rings, earrings, pendants, bracelets and necklaces

14 karat. men’s engagement ring, men’s wedding ring, ladies and men’s dress rings, earrings, pendants, bracelets and necklaces

18 karat. ladies engagement ring, men’s engagement ring, men’s wedding ring, ladies and men’s dress rings, earrings, pendants, bracelets and necklaces


Another thing to consider when choosing a gold jewellery is its color. The mixture of gold with other alloys is another factor that gives any jewellery a unique color. Yellow gold, the most popular of all the colors, is attained by combining pure gold, copper and zinc. Other choices would be white gold, rose gold, and sometimes could even be bronze, red and lime gold.

Sometimes, jewelries can be a combination of two or more gold colors to make its design less common. Two-tone or multi-tone pieces of gold jewellery has been in demand.

Golds with same karat will definitely cost the same. However, different colors of gold will affect its price despite the number of carat it contains. Normally, white gold is the most expensive among all colors because of the tedious process in goes through.
