Maybe black gold, blue gold and red gold are not currently a trend like Rose Gold, but we know it exists in the world of jewelry, and at any time this could change.
The most audacious will ask: Why not change the classic engagement ring of yellow gold for a spectacular ring of intense pink gold?, or why not enhance the beauty of a diamond with black gold?
The jewelry industry has not missed this opportunity, and it is making those models a reality. They do it by mixing gold with other metals. To be more concrete:
Red gold: 75% gold and 25% copper
Pink gold: 75% gold, 5% silver and 20% copper
Green gold: 75% gold, 23% copper and 2% cadmium
Blue gold: 16% gold and 54% indium.
At the same time, I should comment that some of the modalities are not new at all. For example, the green gold was already used 1500 years ago by the inhabitants of Anatolia, in modern day Turkey. However this modality is made by mixing cadmium, and it is somewhat toxic!
Pink gold, or rose gold that is lighter in color, was already used at the time of the Tzars period. It was very popular around the year 1800. And it is currently a trend in the world of jewelry and decoration. Nowadays it is on high demand for example in arab countries.
Black gold is made by a surface treatment on a gold finished piece. For example by a black color plating with a mix of carbon or rhodium. So it is not made by a mixture of metals, what makes us think that this color will need more caring, or special treatments to keep undamaged by time and wearing.
Red and blue gold are more novel. It is in human nature itself to have unique and exclusive things that differentiate us from the rest. Just as a unique jewel of this style can help to express yourself.
An intense pink gold ring with a radiant white diamond can be ideal for initiating a relationship or as an engagement ring. While there are those who, with some humor, look for the same black gold ring after a divorce.
Be that as it may, these rings are hard to find in stores because of their low demand. And when it is done, it is at fairly high prices.
One problem with these parts is that the alloy needs maintenance over the years, or that it is difficult to combine because there are few to make together.
How can I combine blue gold and red gold jewelry?
Jewelry plays a pivotal role for those who take their day-to-day wardrobe quite seriously. One of the most viewed trends is to use accessories of different types of colors, metals, sizes no matter how you are dressed. But perhaps it can be somewhat difficult for blue or red gold jewelry to be so vibrant colors.
We all know that a completely black outfit with blue or red gold accessories would be a perfect match, but if we go beyond the classic black dress with accessories that stand out, we must take into account the color palette.
Oranges and yellows blend perfectly with a blue hue on either side, as well as an apple green or violet and pink tones.
While a red gold accessory goes very well with blue, brown, black and even green colors.
Also, there is jewelry made with turquoise gold, which seems totally unreal for its bright and lively color.
What do you think of these colored jewelry with conventional? Would you buy them or accept them as a gift?
