Pure 24 karat yellow gold is the base for all gold colors and qualities, but is too soft to be used in a pure state for jewelry. It needs to be blended, or alloyed with other metals to strengthen it enough to wear. Different alloy recipes are used to color and determine all types of metal made into jewelry including platinum, white gold, yellow gold and rose gold. Rose gold is a blend, or an alloy of pure 24 karat yellow gold, copper and silver. Rose gold was first used in early 19th century Russia and was known as Russian Gold. Rose gold later gained popularity in the United Stated during the lavish and feminine 1920’s, and was worn in engagement rings and fine jewelry. Cartier was instrumental in the rise in popularity creating luscious rose gold, fine jewelry with precious gemstones and diamonds. One piece in particular aided in the rebirth of rose gold in jewelry, a simple band of three gold colors of gold intertwined now known as the “Trinity Ring”. Over the decades the popularity of rose gold has come and gone, dictated mostly by fashion and starlets. Today rose gold has once again taken it’s rightful place in the style sections of your favorite magazines, on the hands of trend setters. Yellow gold is made of pure gold mixed with alloy metals such as copper and zinc. The pros of yellow gold include that it’s the most hypoallergenic of all the three gold colors, as well as the purest color of all the golds. Yellow Gold is the easiest to maintain out of all three gold color types. White gold is made of a mixture of pure gold and white metals such as nickel, silver and palladium, usually with a rhodium coating. White gold is real but it's not made entirely of gold. The other metals help to strengthen the gold and increase its durability for jewelry. White gold is an alloy composed of pure gold and durable metals such zinc, nickel, and copper — giving it strength and its whiter color. White gold rings are usually made with either 14K or 18K gold. 14 karat is 58.3% gold and 18 karat is 75% gold.
