Twenty Four karat gold is the most luxurious of colors and the purest form of gold. It is also very soft and rarely will you see it in jewelry. Gold is alloyed with other metals to give it strength which reduces the gold content, making 18k 75% pure gold and 14k 58% pure gold. The color is richer the higher the karat weight and stronger the more alloy is in the mix. Either way this sun kissed metal has an allure all its own and a fascination of the ancients.

We know that trends are cyclical. What was once popular goes off trend and then, nearly without fail, comes back full circle, once again into the sphere of popularity. Speaking of a trend that’s circular in more than one sense: yellow gold for engagement rings.

Reviving the popularity from the seventies and eighties, yellow gold bands and

engagement rings are on the rise. If you go with the traditional combination of white diamond in a yellow gold setting, the contrast is gorgeous.

What many do not realize is that gold is the oldest precious metal known to man and made into jewelry as far back as 3000BC. Let’s take another look.
