Gold – Elyssa Jewelry


Gold Guide
Gold, one of the most popular metals, has been a symbol of wealth since the beginning of time. It is extremely durable and does not tarnish, making it a lifetime investment in each piece.

Features and Conditions of Gold:

Gold jewelry is a gift that will last a lifetime due to its excellent and durability. Gold is rust resistant. Does not tarnish or rust. Jewelers enjoy working with gold because of their flexibility.

They like to be able to mold gold to various patterns. However, in many cases, pure 100% gold (24 carat gold) is too soft to be used in jewelry production for jewelers. The addition of some metals and compounds strengthens gold. When added under gold, some blends form an alloy that produces a variety of colors.

Yellow gold, rose gold and white gold are common color variations.Elyssa Jewelry produces jewelry in different colors, so you will be able to choose from a wider range of colored gold jewelry. We make jewelry in white and yellow gold as 14 carat, 18 carat and 19 carat. Rose gold weighs 14k and 18k.

Color of Gold

Gold is available in three colors: yellow, white and pink. In its pure form, the gold color is yellow, and after it is alloyed (mixed) with other metals, gold is strengthened. The color of gold is determined by two factors: the type of metal alloys it contains and the percentage of each metal alloy.

Gold Purity

Pure gold is used as an investment rather than jewelry, because pure gold is very soft for jewelry and they are sensitive to scratching. It is alloyed with a mixture of metals such as pure gold, silver, copper, nickel and zinc to create jewelry. The addition of these metals gives more strength and strength to the gold. 

Gold Karat Classification

The carat weight, as well as the set carat, measures the purity of gold and is indicated by K or Kt. The carat weight is used to indicate the amount of gold present in the metal alloy. Below is a list of different carat weights and related purities.

Carat is a weight measurement to determine how much gold a gem contains. (Note that this is different from the carat used to measure the weight of the diamonds.) The original gold jewelry carries the carat mark somewhere on the piece. It is the place where you will find 14k, 18k stamped on the inside of the rings. You can even find a number, such as 585, or another three-digit number found somewhere on a piece of jewelry. The three-digit number 585 indicates the prediction of pure gold. This means that the jewelry contains 58.5% pure gold content. This is the same as 14 carat gold.

(See the table below. Search for 14k under "Carat" and then look to the right of the line under "Percent Pure Gold Content.")

The number "K" refers to the carat and represents the amount of pure gold content in an alloy (or mixture of metals). So the term 24k means that there are 24 parts by weight of pure gold in jewelry

Carat Piece of Pure Gold Content Percentage of Pure Gold Content

10k = 10/24 = 41.7% pure gold

14k = 14/24 = 58.5% pure gold

18k = 18/24 = 75.0% pure gold

24k = 24/24 = 100% pure gold

Gold Value / Pricing

The price of gold jewelry depends on gram weight, carat weight (or purity) and quality of jewelry design and craftsmanship.

Gold Jewelry Care and Cleaning

Although your gold jewelry is very durable, it can be scratched. There are a few simple steps to take to make your jewelery look new. You should try to keep your gold jewelry away from harsh chemicals such as chlorine and ammonia. These chemicals are often found in household cleaning products, whirlpools and swimming pools. Protect your jewelery from scratching surfaces. Turn your jewelry into a habit of storing in a cloth-covered box or pouch.

To clean your gold jewelery, use warm water and a soap solution that does not contain detergents. Gently wash the piece with a soft bristle brush. If you want, you can also use a jewelry cleaner that can be purchased at many jewelers.
