Gold

Well-known for its distinct yellow color, gold is resistant to rust, tarnish, and corrosion. Although gold is strong, it's also the most malleable of all precious metals.


Purity

Pure gold is too soft for everyday wear, so it is alloyed with a mixture of metals like silver, copper, nickel, and zinc to give it strength and durability. Karatage, denoted by a number followed by "k" indicates purity, or how much of the metal in a piece of jewellery is gold. Karatage is expressed in 24ths, making 24k gold or 100% gold.

Yellow Gold

Natural gold and color-saturated alloys are used to give yellow gold jewellery its rich shine. The most commonly used alloys are copper with a red hue, and silver with a green hue. A mix of copper, silver and pure gold gives the metal its signature warmth

White Gold

The main attraction of white gold jewellery is its silvery white nature. In order to make the gold white, it is combined with metal alloys that are white in nature and plated with an extremely hard element called rhodium. Although strong, rhodium may wear away over time. Replating is a simple process that can be done to restore the whiteness of the jewellery.

Gold, element Au, was one of the first known metals. The gold standard defines the world's currency system, whereby money represents a value in gold.

Rose Gold


The pink hue of rose gold jewellery is created by using a copper alloy. As with yellow and white gold, the overall amount of metal alloys is the same for rose gold. What differs only is the type of alloys.

Pricing

Gold prices are dependent on several factors like the purity of the gold used (karat weight), the market value of gold, and the level of craftsmanship and design invested in each piece of jewellery

Care

Since gold is a natural element, it is affected by chemicals like chlorine and other cleaning products. It is recommended that one remove jewellery while working with chemicals. This helps in reducing daily abrasions and prolongs the lustre. To clean gold jewellery, use a solution of warm water and detergent-free soap with a soft-bristled brush.
