The Timeless Beauty Of Yellow Gold

For most folks in the world, the word gold is synonymous with the words wealth, security, strength, value and luxury. Unlike other metals, the shine of yellow gold will never tarnish or fade. Gold can also be alloyed with other metals to increase its strength when it is worked into shapes and designs.

Due to these special properties and its rarity, gold has been used as a medium of exchange as well as the metal of choice for jewellery and other works of art. Since ancient times, it is a substance that has remained highly valued, even in times of war and famine.

Given its lasting appeal, is it any wonder that gold remains the time honored choice when we wish to profess our love for one another or recognise others for possessing the virtuous qualities that most of us value: honour, loyalty, and courage?

While gold can be alloyed with other metals to change its hue from yellow to white or rose, the original shiny and attractive yellow gold remains the traditional, endearing choice for most.

White Gold or Yellow?

When selecting a piece of jewellery you normally have to decide between silver or white gold and traditional yellow gold.  While it will ultimately be a choice based on your personal preference, there is more to take into account before making a decision.

When you choose what clothing to wear you always take into account what colours that you like and what suits your colouring.  You need to take those same things into account when choosing which colour metal to wear.

Cool skin tones look best with metals such as silver, platinum, and white gold.  Warm skin tones are better suited to yellow based metals such as yellow or rose gold.

Do you know which skin tone you have?

If I ask you what your favourite colours are, that is usually a good indicator.

People with cool skin tones usually prefer pinks, blues, purples and whites.  People with warm skin tones are likely to choose oranges, yellows, rusts and earthy colours.

If you are still not sure, have a look at the inside of your wrists.  What colour are the veins that you see?  If they look blue your skin is cool.  If they appear slightly green then your skin probably has a warm yellowish undertone.

If you are buying jewellery for someone else don’t forget to check which colour they currently wear.  There is no point buying a piece of jewellery in a metal that they are unlikely to wear.

Etched in Memories offers a choice of metals so that there is something to suit everyone.
