Colors of Gold Jewelry

Colors Of Gold JewelryPure gold is identified by its rich yellow color, but most consumers are unaware that the colors of gold jewelry range across a rainbow of hues, including white, pink, red and green, which are made my mixing other metals in various proportions with pure gold to form alloys of varying colors.

White is the most common color of gold jewelry and results from mixing pure gold with a white metal such as nickel or palladium. Pink, rose and red gold are derived by adding copper to the mix; the greater the copper content, the redder the gold.

Silver is responsible for turning gold a pale greenish-yellow, while silver combined with manganese and copper turns gold a pale shade of grey. Blackened gold requires a coating of rhodium or ruthenium, a process also known as patination.

But that's not all. Gold jewelry colors include offbeat shades such as purple and blue, which result from mixing specific ratios of gold with aluminum and indium, respectively.

The varying colors of gold jewelry are used to great effect with colored gemstones, in complementary combinations that enhance the look of the stone.
