Make the most of your Gold Jewelry

By  | 

Gold is made of lustrous yellow metal that is very valuable and is often used in jewelry. It is the epitome of class, elegance and status. It symbolizes a monetary standard and represents wealth and riches. Karatage (e.g.; 18k, 22k, 24k gold) indicates the purity of gold in a piece of jewelry. Pure gold is too soft for everyday wear, so it is fused with a mixture of metals such as nickel, copper as well as silver to make it sturdier. The color of gold jewelry varies by the type of metal alloys used. Popular colors of gold jewelry are Yellow Gold, White Gold and Rose Gold.

Make the most of your gold jewelry

Caring for Gold

Gold is the metal that keeps it value through time, thus making gold jewelry timeless. Typical abrasions occur on jewelries worn on a regular basis. To prolong its luster keep away from harsh cleaning products, such as bleach chemicals. For cleansing, it is still best to use warm water and non-detergent soap.

Sentimental Value

Value for money will always be maximized with gold jewelry. Most gold jewelry is treated as a special remembrance or as an heirloom to be passed on to future generations and loved ones.

    I’ve always been a gold jewelry person because my skin is kind of sensitive. Other than that, I love gold jewelries as it is relatively easy to keep clean, and it doesn’t tarnish like silver.

    with all types of jewelry available today in the market, the best one to select I think so was this gold made. Because they’re not just for beautification or to accessorize yourself but also it could be your best investment too, due to it’s value.. hehe
