About Gold Jewelry
The purity of gold is measured in karats. Pure gold measures 24 karats but is too soft in this state to be used efficaciously in jewelry. So it is alloyed with other metals–silver, copper, nickel, and zinc–to increase it is strength and durability. Common measurements once the alloy is added are 18 karat (75% gold), 14 karat (58%), and 10 karat (47.7%). In the United States, the legal karat limit for the metal to still be considered gold is 10 karats. A higher karat measurement in gold content gives evidence of a more outstanding value of the jewelry piece. Gold jewelry will have to always be stamped with the karat mark, either 18k, 750 (European marking for 18k), 14k, 585 (European marking for 14k), or 10k. In addition, to make sure it is quality, the piece will have to be stamped with the manufacturer’s trademark or country of origin.
The color of gold may vary based off of the type of metal alloy included and the portion of the metal alloy used. Most commonly, gold is available in yellow, white and rose coloring.
Yellow gold is the most mutual color and is ordinarily alloyed with silver and copper. Yellow and white gold are similar in strength and malleability, making them perfective for jewelry that is worn daily.
White gold is alloyed with nickel, copper, and zinc–and while it looks similar to platinum, it has vastly dissimilar properties.
Rose-colored gold is alloyed with copper and is many times applied to accent white or yellow gold. The saturation of color varies from piece to piece and according to gold content.
Caring For Your Gold Jewelry
To keep gold shining and scratch-free, refrain from contact with chlorine and other harsh chemicals. Do not wear jewelry for the duration of rough work and be sure to store it in a fabric-lined jewelry box or pouch. To clean gold jewelry, use warm water, a mild soap, and a soft bristled brush, if needed.
