The many colors of gold
Yellow gold, white gold, rose gold, green gold – learn about the color wheel of gold jewelry options for your treasure chest.
When most people think of gold, the image that comes to mind is of a metal with a soft, yellow glow. Indeed, the incomparable golden hue of this precious metal has been part of its appeal for centuries. But for the gold jewelry connoisseur, there are more shades of gold available than just yellow – and in a spectrum of different hues. The tint the gold takes on depends on the metals it is mixed, or alloyed with. Here are the main shades of gold:
Yellow gold – this is gold in its natural shade. It is by far the most common type of gold used in jewelry. Yellow gold used for jewelry is usually alloyed with copper and silver to strengthen it. The warm glow of yellow gold works with virtually any outfit, any skin or body type and any gemstone. How yellow a piece is will depend on its gold content. Generally, 14 karat gold has a brighter yellow than 10 karat gold; 18 karat gold has a deeper yellow than 14 karat gold, and so on.
White gold – white gold has become very fashionable in recent years as many consumers have opted for the cool, contemporary white look over the classic yellow look. White gold has the same properties as yellow gold, but is mixed with different alloys to give it its white color. Generally, white gold is created by using a nickel or palladium alloy, zinc and copper. Sometimes, white gold is plated with an even whiter metal, such as rhodium (a rare member of the platinum family) to enhance its appearance. A white gold setting can enhance the look of white diamonds and put a modern twist on a traditional standard.
Rose gold – by alloying just copper with yellow gold, metal smiths can create gold with a pink, blush-like tint, which experts say lends a soft, flattering effect to the skin.
Green gold – this alloy is created by mixing silver, copper and zinc to yellow gold.
The other types of gold jewelry include gold-filled, gold-plated and vermeil. Gold-filled refers to a layer of gold mechanically bonded to a base (non-precious) metal; the gold content must be at least 1/20th of the total weight of the piece. Gold-plated merchandise has a coating of 10 karat gold or higher applied to a base metal by electrolysis. Vermeil is jewelry that is made by applying a layer of karat gold to a sterling silver base.
To keep the classic appeal of yellow gold but update it with a more modern look, many women are opting for two-tone styles that combine white and yellow gold within the same piece. These types of pieces are considered very fashionable and have become particularly popular in bridal jewelry in recent year.
For an even more original look, some women are choosing jewelry which combines three colors of gold (most often yellow, rose and green) within the same piece
A 24 karat necklace is pure gold. A 12 karat necklace is only 50% gold. So if you have two necklaces that look similar and weigh the exact same amount, but one is 24 k. And the other only 12 k., a scrap gold buyer should give you twice as much for the 24 k. Necklace since it has twice a much gold in it.
Selling gold or silver jewelry as scrap is a booming business these days since the price of gold and silver has skyrocketed in recent years.
Now, anybody with a little bit of experience in this world knows that whenever a lot of money is at stake, a rip-off artist is just around the corner!

How do I know if my items are real gold, silver, or platinum?
We determine the purity of each piece of gold by going through a 3-step process. We will test whether or not each piece is magnetic, has a proper hallmark stamp, and finally we will file into each piece and test with a solution. After performing these 3 steps, we will be able to determine whether or not your piece is real and the karatage of each piece. Remember, just because your gold looks real and has a stamp, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s authentic. If you have any questions and would like us to determine the authenticity of your items, simply bring them into one of our stores and one of our qualified professional precious metals specialists will assess them. We offer free appraisals and there’s no obligation to sell. Please note that your items will be damaged in the testing process.

We pay you on the spot. When you come into one of our stores to sell your unwanted valuables, you will get paid immediately. We pay with company check and the amount paid is based on the karat and weight of each piece as well as the current market price of the precious metals.
Shouldn’t I be able to sell my items for what I paid for them?
It just depends, in some cases you will get more and sometimes less. We purchase items for the purpose of melting and refining the precious metals so we do not pay for craftsmanship or colored stones. Design and sheer beauty do not factor into pricing since we are not a retailer and do not resell items to the public.
