Shopping for jewellery is always exciting. Whether you’re looking for statement earrings, or an everyday necklace, there are lots of choices to make. At Annabel Jewellery one of the most important decisions you’ll have to make is what type of gold plating you would like. Our 925 Sterling Silver designs, come in a choice of white gold, yellow gold, and rose gold plating. So which one is right for you? Let’s explore each option in detail.
White gold has been a popular choice since it was introduced in the 1920s. It provides a modern feel and look that makes it a great choice for contemporary jewellery styles. White gold is created by combining pure yellow gold with white metals such as silver, palladium, or nickel to give it its unique colouring. The more white metals used in the mix, the whiter the final product will be. To protect against tarnishing or discolouration, white gold jewellery is often plated with rhodium.
The classic beauty of yellow gold has been around since ancient times and continues to be popular today. Pure yellow gold is an alloy made up of pure yellow metal and other metals such as copper and zinc that give it its yellow hue. Yellow gold looks best when paired with warmer hues like reds and oranges so if you’re looking for something bold and eye-catching this might be the choice for you!
If you love pink then rose gold might be perfect for you! Rose gold was first created by mixing pure yellow gold with copper which gives it its rosy hue. Rose gold has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its soft femininity that can add a romantic touch to any piece of jewellery. It also pairs well with many different colours so you can create a truly unique look no matter what style or design you choose.
No matter which type of metal setting that suits your style best - white, yellow, or rose - there are lots of options available when it comes to choosing the right jewellery for any occasion. From sparkly rings to dainty necklaces, each metal offers something special that will help make your jewellery stand out from the crowd. As long as you take into consideration both your personal style preferences, picking between white, yellow, or rose gold should be easy-peasy! Happy shopping!
