999 Gold – A love So Pure

999 Gold - A love So Pure

Jewellery trends may come and go, but our obsession with Gold clearly doesn’t. In many cultures, gold jewellery still ranks highly as one of the most coveted wedding, birthday, or coming-of-age-gifts for women of all ages. But how much do we know about the quality or purity of the gold that we own, or are we planning to own? What do we look out for when searching for a good piece of gold jewellery that is likely to last across generations?

The K Factor

Karats, which is represented by the letter ‘K’ often stamped onto a piece of gold, is a measurement of gold content in piece of gold jewellery. They range from 10 to 24, and the higher the number, the more gold there is compared to other alloy metals.

In other words, 24K gold or 999 pure gold, as it is often termed, is the purest gold money can buy. However, gold that is blended with other alloys are made to be much stronger, as gold is a relatively soft metal. So, while 24K gold isn’t the preferred choice for everyday jewellery like wedding rings, it is however, a good choice for those looking for an investment piece.

The Colour of 24K Gold

The purest gold is also the most natural and brilliant, and always brings out a woman’s beauty and radiance in the most complementary way. In fact, the yellow tones of 999 pure gold complement olive and darker skin tones, which makes the gold pop and shine even more.

Despite the diverse palette choices of gold today, 24K gold remains a classic choice because it goes with almost every outfit in the wardrobe.

Not quite your style? Change it

A well-designed piece of 24K gold jewellery is the perfect combination of investment and adornment. Therefore, it was common for women in earlier generations to receive their first set of gold jewellery on their wedding day. In fact, these sets of jewellery often become the family heirloom, and are eventually passed down the generations.

More often than not, we end up with pieces of gold jewellery that are either too loud or ornate, or just doesn’t quite go with our modern outfits. Instead of keeping them at the bottom of your drawer, you can always repurpose your gold jewellery into something current. With a little effort, an intricate pendant that came from your grandmother’s jewellery box and is now in your hands can easily be melted down and re-designed into something you can wear daily.
