Gold is among the most adored precious metals in the world.
Since ancient times, gold has been treasured for its natural beauty and radiance.
For this reason, many cultures have imagined gold to represent the sun.
Yellow gold is still the most popular gold color, but today’s gold is available in a diverse palette. Pure gold is too fragile to use it as jewellery. So it is alloyed with a mixture of metals like silver, copper, nickel, and zinc to give it strength and durability.
There are no standards set for the mixture percentages, so the fluctuating mixture completely depends on the manufacturer or the desired color. Your gold piece can have a different hue from other pieces of the same gold purity karat.
