Why People Love Gold Jewelry!

Jewelry Makes People Smile

It seems pretty obvious, but makes you think how it started and why people feel the ways they do about gold jewelry overall. It has always been seen in modern culture as a status symbol, but so many people wear it just because of the beautiful designs. Imagine a couple going out to dinner and the man giving the woman a loaf of bread instead of something like gold earrings or a silver chain for a present. It might go over well in some places, but most of the time we feel that the jewelry would have a better response.  A man might be happy getting something like a new power tool or ladder, but he would probably enjoy a watch much more in most cases.

It has been countless years since the idea of giving jewelry started. Maybe in caveman times, the men could come home with dinosaur bones and the women would be happy. We are pretty sure even back then if he brought home a necklace made of just rocks she would have a smile on her face. Actually, even now everyone is happy to have a spontaneous gift brought home to them, so maybe that wasn’t the best example. We are sure you get the idea of what we are saying about jewelry being fun to wear though.  Overall it really is the thought that counts, so any type of gold jewelry such as necklaces, chains, bracelets, earrings or anything you bring home should be greatly appreciated.

The Purity Of Metals In Gold Jewelry

The precious metal Gold is used in a variety of jewelry to make items such as Gold chains, bracelets, earrings, pendants and many others and has a long history of uses. The metal is extremely malleable while being durable and resistant. When crafted by jewelers into beautiful 14k white or yellow gold jewelry designs the possibilities for artistic creation are endless.

Gold Chains

Pure 24k gold is often mixed with other metals in order to give it even more strength. Remember, 24 karat gold is 100% pure gold and is more difficult to keep its form when not mixed with other metals. Some of the metals utilized in jewelry manufacturing are copper, silver, nickel and zinc. The color changes slightly depending on the final purity our jewelers create the jewelry with for the final products. That is why you will see that 24 karat gold is much more of a deep 14 karat yellow gold jewelry. Many people like the look of a darker yellow so they prefer 18 karat gold when buying jewelry.
