Gold came from the stars. Much of the gold available on the earth’s surface and crust today is believed to have been as a result of a supernova in what scientists call the ‘Late Heavy Bombardment’ that occurred 4 billion years ago give or take a few hundred years. Since then its discovery has fascinated human beings for centuries, and it will continue for many generations to come.
One of the uses of gold that have shaped the human social structure is the incorporation of gold in jewelry. The puresit form is a stunning 24 Karat (k) yellow metal. The 24k gold is too soft to maintain shape when turned used into jewelry and so variations have come up, which in no way do they undermine the social status of gold, as we know it.
Much of this metal that goes into the making of jewelry is either yellow or white gold. White color is a result of treatment applied to gold. Rhodium is a rare metal used to coat this metal with a thin white film. Jewellers mix yellow gold to make variations rigid enough to make jewelry, and most popular is Rose Gold.
Thanks to the Russians, who were the first people on record to use this metal, it went by the name Russian Gold before they moved on to other forms of jewelry making materials.
To make the Rose color, jewellers mix pure 24k gold with metal alloys the result being different shades of gold. Rose Gold is a favorite for making engagement rings. These engagement rings are available in 9k, 10k, 14k, 18k, and in other parts of the world, pure 22-24k to make jewelry. The amount of copper in the gold determines the color of the ring.
Shades of this Material
