Why Gold Jewelry is Making a Comeback
The sparkle and shine of gold jewelry are behind why gold has endured as a jewelry component for years and years. Gold was first celebrated in ancient times for its rarity and of course, beauty. It was actually used to create jewelry even before it was made into money.
Check out some of the reasons why gold jewelry will always shine:
Elegance and sophistication: Gold is a classic color and embodies a well-known look for all pieces of jewelry from rings to necklaces. It really can complement almost all stones and settings and serves as a foundation for beauty that will last for years to come.
Durability: Gold jewelry is easier to care for than silver as it does not really tarnish and does not require polishing in the same way that silver pieces do. It is also a hearty metal that can stand up to daily wear and tear in jewelry.
Heirloom pieces: As gold has been a key part of the industry for decades and decades, you will often find heirloom pieces made of gold, and they will continue to be passed down for future generations. Beautiful gold jewelry will always be celebrated for its sentimental value by children and grandchildren.
Mixed metals: Gold is often blended with other metals, such as nickel, zinc or copper to help it be more durable and long-lasting. The more pure gold that a piece contains, the softer the gold will be.
Different options: Gold is available in a variety of colors and tones to match your loved one’s skin tone, style and occasion that you are celebrating. Yellow gold is a timeless look that has been mainstream off and on for decades. Rose gold is an example of a modern and stylish take on gold. The color is created through mixing gold and other metal alloys.
All about style: No matter what color, gold is a timeless look that has endured for thousands of years, and it will be around for many, many more.
