The everlasting beauty of gold jewelry
No other raw material is as beautiful and enduring as gold. It was one of the first metals ever to be processed by people - and has always been used for jewelry thanks to its enduring golden color. Thanks to developments in modern jewelry making, gold jewelry can now be made of cool white gold and cooler shades of rose gold too.

Where does gold jewelry get its color from?
Pure gold is too soft to hold its shape forever so goldsmiths have to add other metals to the gold when they use it to make jewelry. Not only does this make the gold jewelry more durable, but it also means that gold jewelry can be made in other colors. To make different shades of rose gold, copper is added, palladium is used to make white gold and warm yellow gold is the result of combining fine gold, silver, copper, and zinc.
