  • White Gold VS Yellow Gold With Diamonds

In order to decide on whether white or yellow gold suits your diamond better, you need to consider the color grade of your diamond. For colorless and near colorless diamonds, with grades D-I on the color scale, white gold goes perfectly. It will accentuate the brilliance of the diamond and maximize its sparkle. For diamonds with yellowish tints, J-M on the color scale, a yellow gold setting will minimize the appearance of the tints and highlight the sparkle of the stone. A tinted diamond and a yellow gold setting has a warm look and is a very good combination.  
  • How Gold Jewelry Is Made?

Gold in its natural form is yellow but it can be altered into a variety of different colors while the most common ones are ROSE gold and WHITE gold. Pure gold alone is rather soft which is why it must be mixed with other alloys (such as silver, copper, zinc, palladium and etc.) to form a stronger and long lasting jewelry piece which can uphold its shape for years to come. The karat grade of a piece of gold jewelry indicates how much pure gold is used in the mixture. To be precise, 18K gold is composed of 75% fine gold with %25 other alloys while 14K gold contains %58.5 fine gold and %41.5 other alloys.  
  •  Would Rose Gold Go Out Of Style?

It would be too hard to predict the style forecast. It is more logical to pick a piece of jewelry that speaks to your heart. If you’re head over heels with a rose gold then who cares if it goes out of style? The bottom line is that it’s an individual decision that ultimately depends on what you love most.
  • Skin Tone And Gold Color Tones (Rose Gold, Yellow Gold and White Gold)

Rose gold has the distinction of looking stunning on all skin colors. It looks gorgeous on both warm and cool skin tones. It highlights blush undertones and adds a luminance to tan and dark skin. Yellow gold on the other hand looks radiant on warmer skin tones, however, it can look flat or washed out on cooler skin tones. It pops against darker or tanned tones and stands out beautifully. White gold is very striking on cool skin tones and makes the skin look fresh, radiant and not pasty.
  • Which Gold Color Tone Is More Pricy?

The value and price of gold is mainly defined by the karat grade and slightly by color. Obviously 18K gold is more expensive than 12K or 14K gold. When it comes to different colors of the same grade, the price might marginally vary depending on the alloys mixed and their respective prices.
  • Can Gold Jewelry Cause A Rash?

The higher the karat grade of a gold jewelry the less possibility of having allergy wearing it. If wearing a piece of 18K or 14K gold causes a skin rash it could often be the result of dirt and grime built up underneath or in the recessed areas of your jewelry pieces. Dirt can easily attract bacteria and cause irritation and rash on your skin. Back in the day, gold jewelry was commonly mixed with nickel which is known to be an allergen. Another reason you get a rash from your gold jewelry could be due to a high amount of nickel in its composition. To take the safe route, opt for a higher karat grade of gold jewelry and before purchasing consult with your jeweler to ensure the pieces are nickel-free.
  • Is Gold Jewelry Waterproof?

You can shower or swim in your solid (yellow, rose or white) gold jewelry as it will never wear off or change color due to its low reactivity. Although chlorine in swimming pools can harm the metal in lower grade gold jewelleries since they include a higher percentage of other alloys mixed with fine gold. As for gold plated jewelry, it can still wear off over time. I would recommend taking it off before swimming or even showering.
  • What Is Rose Gold Jewelry Made Of?

Majority of 18K and 14K rose gold jewelleries are composed of fine gold, copper, and silver with different ratios.
  • What Gold Jewelry Does Not Tarnish?

Solid gold is one of the least reactive metals and does not oxidize easily so it is safe to say that it will not tarnish, but that is pure 24K gold. The lower the karat grade of a gold jewelry the higher likelihood of rusting. Having said that, tarnish is mostly observed in jewelry that has lower grade than 14K gold. Little tarnishing might be seen in 14K gold and very seldom in 18K gold. Gold Plated or Gold Vermeil over a base metal (most likely sterling silver or brass) may tarnish. When the plating wears off, the base metal gets exposed and the jewelry will begin to tarnish. Sterling Silver does tarnish. It is typically composed of 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals (usually copper) which will easily react with the moisture in the air and make your skin turn green.
