“The desire of Gold is not for Gold. It is for the means of Freedom and Benefit.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Gold is a precious metal that represents richness, sophistication, and elegance. Gold's allure and gleam are hard to miss. It is among the oldest and most valuable precious metals in the world and a jewellers’ favourite because of its long-lasting sheen and anti-rust qualities.
Gold’s radiating shades accentuate any skin tone and work well with any stone setting as well.
It is naturally found in yellow shades, but several other shades can also be made by mixing gold with other alloys. For instance, rose gold can be formed by mixing gold with copper and nickel is alloyed with gold to make white gold.
Now, with the advancement in technology, several goldsmiths and jewelry manufacturers are creating exquisite shades of gold such as brown, green, gray and even red.
‘Karat’ is the term, used to measure the purity of gold. 24K is pure gold with no other metals, 22k will have an alloy of 91.7 % gold and remaining other metals like silver, copper or zinc in varied proportions. 18k, 14k, 10k and 9k will have 75%, 58.3%, 41.7% and 37.5% of gold respectively and the remaining is alloyed with other metals.
We all know that gold is symbolic of royalty, prosperity and status and some gold jewelry has intrinsic worth and can be passed down through generations as an heirloom, bringing it emotional value.
But, do you know, Gold has also been known for its remarkable health benefits too.
