Types of Gold
Yellow Gold: One of the most preferred colors of gold, yellow gold is mostly used for creating ornaments. It is the purest and natural color of gold, as the mineral looks golden (yellow) when mined and favored the most by women as it also suits all skin tones. Its composition includes gold, silver, zinc and copper. It is the most hypo-allergic and malleable of all the gold colors and mostly opted by jewelers.
Rose Gold: Rose gold has been introduced to the jewelry market only recently and more cheaper comparatively to yellow gold. Rose gold metal has a unique pinkish hue that is obtained when copper is blended with yellow gold. The more the percentage of copper is stronger the more pinkish is the gold. Copper is very durable and so this makes rose gold harder than yellow or white gold.
White Gold: In order to obtain white gold, white metals like rhodium, palladium, zinc and nickel are blended with yellow gold. White gold is silvery white in color and opted by almost everyone as it is considered quite soothing and chic. This metal is more durable and scratch resistant because of presence of rhodium in it.
