Purity, Color, Pricing, and Care
Gold has an extraordinary heritage with unique qualities. As an enduring element found naturally in a distinct yellow color, gold is resistant to rust, tarnish, and corrosion. Although gold is very strong, it s also the most malleable of all precious metals.
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, 100% gold.
We craft our jewelry using both 18k and 14k gold. 18k gold is composed of 75% gold, which is alloyed with other metals to make it strong enough for everyday wear. 14k gold is composed of 58.3% gold and 41.7% of other metals.
The color of gold is determined by two factors:
The type of metal alloys included
The percentage of each metal alloy
Natural gold and color-saturated alloys are what give yellow gold jewelry its rich shine. The alloys most commonly used, are copper with a red hue, and silver featuring a green hue. An expert mixture of copper, silver and pure gold gives this precious metal its signature warmth.
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.
24 karat = 100% gold
Too soft for fine jewelry 22 karat = 91.7% gold
For Diamond & Gem jewelry 18 karat = 75.0% gold
Ideal for Diamond & Gem fine jewelry 14 karat = 58.3% gold
Ideal for Diamond & Gem fine jewelry 10 karat = 41.7% gold
Our 18k gold jewelry is intricately crafted into beautiful pieces for every occasion or style For Diamond & Gems.
A silvery white character is what makes white gold jewelry so appealing. 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 whiteness to your jewelry.
Caring for White Gold Jewelry
When white gold is sold, it is always rhodium plated. Rhodium is a hard, durable, silvery-white metal that gives white gold (which is actually a very pale yellow) a very white look in the showcase and on your finger. This white look will soon wear out when there is friction. This usually starts by the shank (the part of the ring that goes around the finger) starting to “turn yellow”. Later, all the exposed edges and corners will start “yellowing” as well.
The easiest and least expensive solution is to take it to your local jeweller to have the ring re-rhodiumed. The cost of this temporary solution is minimal, and it needs to be repeated as this new layer wears off. A more permanent solution would be to consider remounting your stones in a platinum or palladium alloy ring.
While lasting and durable, gold can become scratched or dented, particularly if handled roughly. Regularly check your gold jewelry for loose prongs or any damage, promptly bringing it to a professional jeweler for repair if needed.
