columnlogoGold’s Warmer Side

Because pure 24-karat gold is too soft to be used in jewelry making, it must be alloyed with other metals to increase its hardness. At the same time, alloying also provides an opportunity to modify gold’s natural yellow hue to other lovely colors. For instance, by combining gold with small amounts of copper, pink gold is created. “Rose gold,” as it is otherwise known, is again back in fashion because its rich pink hue goes with virtually everything. Start with pink diamonds, topaz, and sapphire, and then run the gamut of red gemstones from rubies and pyrope to almandine and rubellite. Rose gold exudes a wonderfully warm glow that casts many jewelry pieces in their best light.
