Platinum is the heaviest of all precious metals, heavier in karats than gold. While it may not be as malleable as certain types of gold, it’s averse to any type of corrosion or wear-and-tear. Plus, it’s silver-white lustre pairs super well with other metals and stones. Hence, it’s a great choice for fine jewellery-making.
Made from heated soulful compounds within the earth’s crust, silver has been known and used as jewellery or precious home-ware for centuries. Humans have been drawn to it from the beginning of time, due to it’s ultra-reflective qualities. This, combined with the fact that it’s very malleable, makes it great to use and wear as jewellery.
Rose gold is made of pure gold mixed with a copper and silver alloy. Due to this process, it gets its famed pink tinge. People often refer to rose gold as pink gold. This usually comes in the form of 18K Gold, or less, as an alloy.
Yellow gold, as we know it, is the purest form of gold used in jewellery. 24 K gold is 99.9% gold, mixed with zinc and copper to form an alloy. As the karatage goes lower, so the alloy increases, but this makes it more malleable.
White gold looks reflective and silver-like in appearance. Like rose gold, it is also an alloy. This is how it gets its silver-ish colour. This alloy is usually formed by mixing metals like nickel.
Finally, green gold is the least known of gold alloys. It is also an alloy of 14 to 18K gold. And, it’s usually mixed with silver, zinc, cadmium, or a combo of metals. Green Gold is more rarely used, but is beautiful to look at.
