Colors of Gold
Yellow GoldYellow gold is the all natural version of gold. It’s our favourite choice for all things wedding! It’s super pleasing to the eye and complements most skin tones. Within the yellow gold family, there can be a marked difference in shading based on the karat weight-for instance, an 18 karat yellow gold ring will be richer and more brilliant in color than one measuring 10 karats.
Rose gold, also known as pink or red gold, is gorgeous blend of gold with a small percentage of copper which adds strength and durability. It is an extremely popular metal choice for those looking for a feminine or luxurious touch.
White gold is an alloy of gold. This means that it is made up of pure yellow gold, mixed with alloy metals that have a silvery-white colour, such as palladium and silver. Its neutral colour and durability make it the perfect setting for all gemstones. It looks beautiful and classic, suiting all outfits and events.
Platinum is a white precious metal and is the most expensive of all the precious metals because of its rarity. It is also a lot tougher, so can endure more wear and tear than silver and gold jewellery, and much heavier – a platinum ring will be about 30% heavier than a gold ring of the same size.
There are different finenesses of platinum, with 850, 900, 950 and 999 hallmarks, with each number referring to how many parts of platinum there are per 1,000. Platinum hallmarks look like the side profile of a house with the number of the fineness inside. The most popular fineness for platinum jewellery is 950, but the grades of platinum are not communicated in stores with the same transparency as carats of gold, so make sure to check the hallmarks or ask the staff, otherwise you could end up overpaying.
