Jewelry trends tend to come and go just as fast as fashion trends. Jewelry is known to transform any outfit or style. Often, you will find that many people prefer to layer different types of jewelry, like classic and costume jewelry, over each other to create unique styles and jewelry trends. As such, jewelry trends are more radical and tend to change faster than fashion trends.
Is gold jewelry trendy again?
In 2001, there was a stigma going around about wearing too much gold jewelry. Whether it was hoops, necklaces, earrings, bangles, or any other gold jewelry, at the time, no one wanted to go against the trend by wearing a lot of gold.
Still, gold jewelry brings a touch of elegance and sophistication to any ensemble. It comes in several exquisite shades that can enhance any complexion and blend perfectly with any stone.
No matter what colour your jewelry is, the amount of pure gold in it is measured in karats. For instance, 18K yellow gold stands for 75% pure gold and 25% other metals, and 24K is pure gold. The higher the karat, the more gold content is in the alloy. The metals used in the alloy will determine the colour of the gold.
Yellow gold jewelry will never run out of style as it has made its lifetime mark in the industry. It is a timeless metal that will never lose its place and status in the world. It is considered more elegant than silver, and it is more durable because it does not oxidize. On its own or enhanced with gemstones, yellow gold jewelry maintains its unique sense of elegance and sophistication.
Rose gold jewelry contains pure gold mixed with silver and copper, just like yellow gold but with a higher amount of copper. Rose gold jewelry is still in style, although it is less in demand than the other types of gold.
White gold is very popular in today’s society. It is made of a mixture of pure gold and white metals such as nickel, palladium and silver. It often requires a rhodium coating to give it that cold white colour. Currently, white gold is more popular than yellow or rose gold and complements rosy or fair skin tones. It is often used in diamond settings as it enhances the qualities of transparent white gems.
