Most people think that gold is a yellow metal and anything, which is of a different colour is not actually gold. So if you’re in search of ‘real gold’, don’t shun those objects that come in a variety of colours. You might actually be limiting your choice. The purity of this metal is judged not by colour, but by the Karat (K) value of the gold.
Determining the amount of pure gold in an item
You can’t have a ring or a bracelet that is made of pure gold. This is because gold is a soft metal and an additional metal needs to be added in order to create a durable alloy. That’s why gold objects come with karat ratings.
Understanding karat levels is very important because it helps individuals make a well-informed purchase. Make sure you’re spending on a quality product.
So, you’ve finally decided to buy a gold ornament for your loved one, but you’re not too sure what to pick out. Besides a plethora of item choices, there are also different colours that you can opt for. Here, are a few popular ones that are catching the eye of jewellery shoppers all over the globe.
If you’re looking for something that is completely unique, then a purple gold item is what you should invest in. By adding a certain amount of aluminium, the resulting item has a purplish tinge. Also, called amethyst or violet gold, the alloy has nearly 80% of gold and is great for those wanting to try something new.
An alloy of gold and indium, blue gold can really stand out when used aesthetically in an item. Though there is lesser gold used in this alloy (about 12K), a large number of people choose it over purple gold at times. This could be because it is less brittle than the latter.
This is perhaps the most popular among all colours of gold. Depending on the metal that is mixed, you can get various shades that can really stand out as wedding rings, earrings, and other ornaments. The usage of nickel is quite common in many countries, but you need to ensure that you’re not allergic to this metal. Palladium is a good option to go with.
There are a host of design and colour options when it comes to gold. You just need to ensure that you land up with an item that is unique and worth the money spent.
