Factors to Consider When Choosing Gold Jewellery
Picking the right gold jewellery for yourself or someone special is an easy task once you’ve got the basics down. Luckily, the differences between yellow and white gold or 9ct and 18ct gold are fairly simple.
Gold purity refers to the gold content in a particular gold design. The maximum is 24ct, which is pure gold. Most commonly, jewellery is created with 9ct yellow gold (37.5% gold content) that is mixed with other metals to create a stronger base. 18ct gold (75% gold content) displays a richer colour but is slightly less durable than gold jewellery with fewer carats.
The colour of your gold is an important factor to consider when buying jewellery as a gift. The three main colours are yellow, white, and rose gold, with each fitting a different occasion or personality. Yellow gold tends to be more classic and timeless, white gold more elegant, and rose gold more delicate looking.
Sizing and Fit
When buying gold rings, necklaces, bracelets, or even gold anklets, it’s important to consider the size and fit of the piece. Ring sizes can be selected before purchase, while necklace lengths can drastically change the style of the piece. Of course, if you’re into stacking jewellery, you might like to buy several jewellery pieces of varying sizes.
What are the types of Gold Jewellery?
Gold jewellery comes in a variety of types, including gold plated, gold filled, and the average solid yellow gold design. There are key differences between each, which makes it important to know what type of gold jewellery is best for you.
Solid Gold Jewellery
Whilst not 100% gold, solid gold jewellery is made of one complete alloy. Depending on the carat of gold, this type of jewellery will have a certain amount of pure gold mixed into the alloy, which may also contain copper, silver, and other metals.
If you want jewellery that will last, this standard, solid design is the most durable. Because it has a higher gold content, however, it can be more expensive. For those looking for everyday jewellery, a standard solid yellow, white, or rose gold design is the best way to go.
Gold Plated Jewellery
Gold plated jewellery usually features a coating of 14ct or 18ct gold, which displays a vibrant, luxurious colour. Underneath, this type of gold jewellery can have a copper, silver or another metal base, which holds the shape and design strongly.
These gold designs aren’t for everyday wear, as they are more susceptible to scratching and water damage. But, they are perfect for reserving for special occasions and less frequent wear. Gold plated jewellery is the most affordable option for gold buyers and is an excellent way to add more interesting designs to your collection for less.
Gold Filled Jewellery
Gold filled jewellery is an amazing alternative to the other gold jewellery types. Compared to plated designs, this method uses significantly more gold, which makes it a more durable option. The filling is usually copper or sterling silver, but you are unlikely to ever see a trace of either.
While more durable than gold plated jewellery, gold filled options can cost slightly more. They are, however, a good alternative to regular gold jewellery if you’re looking at a lower price range.
