A lot of things can be said about gold. It sparkles under the right circumstances and has been the focus of many ancient and modern explorations. It has also been the foundation upon which many great kingdoms were built. Today, it is a highly desired precious metal and jewellery made with it adopt this same appeal. Before you
buy gold jewellery though, you should be aware of some important gold-related facts.
Getting to Know Gold
Gold is pretty delicate when compared with other precious metals or gemstones. In fact, in order to make is stand up to everyday use, jewellers mix pure gold with other substances such as copper alloy. The purity of gold is then measured based on the amount of non-gold substance that has been added. This purity is represented in Karats with the highest -24k- representing 100% pure gold.
Gold comes in a variety of hues and each hue is specifically related to the type and amount of substance that has been added. Rose gold, for example, is created when copper alloy is added to gold. Yellow gold is created when colour saturated alloys are mixed with natural gold. This is also what causes yellow gold to glow so boldly.
Four main factors are used to determine the price of gold jewellery. They include, the karat, the current trends of gold on the market and the craftsmanship used to design the item.
