Yellow, White Or Rose: Pick the Perfect Finish for Your Gold Plated Costume Jewellery for That Ultimate Impression
July 29, 2021
Nothing adds a spot of elegance and sophistication to a look than some gold jewellery! The shades are exquisite and gold acts as a perfect setting for semi-precious gemstones of different hues.
Historically considered a precious metal, gold was always meant to be possessed, pursued, and paraded off in front of people to exhibit power, wealth, and grandeur. But for all the glory that gold has, it is also a high-density metal with a softness that makes it impractical and too expensive to craft pure gold jewellery. That’s where gold plating or gold gilding came up as a practice in the early days that essentially means depositing a thin layer of gold over a base metal. Aside from making it stronger and easier to work with, gold plating on costume jewellery became an accepted way of mimicking pure gold jewellery. And with dropping prices, our pockets could not stop thanking it enough!
After a brief hiatus of two decades, gold is back grabbing our jewellery trend limelight. Try it in its various shades and a gold ornament will cater to a wide wardrobe selection. The three popular shades for gold plated imitation jewellery online that are presently preferred by all stylists are: yellow, white, and rose gold. Pick the perfect shade to instantly add a class and status to your look. Let us deep dive into the shade world of gold plating and see which colour finish fits which kind of look!
Considered as one of the most romantic metals, rose gold is the most trending metal colour of the season. It is apt for modern couples who look for cutting-edge and contemporary stylish design while selecting their jewellery. Rose gold, also known as ‘red’ or ‘pink’ gold, is definitely an embodiment of passion and excitement. Add a touch of bling to your professional wear with this unconventional shade as it makes for a graceful fashion statement. We cannot stop raving for our latest addition in the rose gold plated jewellery offering, this Twisted Together Solitaire Necklace that we find charming yet sparkly and luminescent, and delicate. The best thing about the rose gold shade is that its rosy hue matches all skin tones and looks striking worn by both men and women. Men can opt for two-toned mixed shades of metal with a sliver of rose gold for that subtle expression of their style like our Edgy Elegance Mens Engagement Ring.
White gold plating is an excellent choice for people who are platinum-crazy but would like a more affordable option with the same subtlety, elegance and sophistication. Maintaining platinum jewellery is also heck difficult than taking care of white gold plated jewellery. Before yellow gold made a resurgence in recent years, the jewellery market was ruled by white gold. It is an excellent shade to carry off white diamond settings and looks lustrous on rosy or fair skin tone. White gold enhances the ‘cool’ undertone of a pearl thereby adding more brightness and whiteness to it and therefore, from our repertoire of jewellery, we adore this pearl piece Twisted Petal Pearl Drop Earrings for those dazzling and dressy evening getups. Since its resemblance is to silver, a lot of men are automatically drawn towards white gold. They must check out our bracelet selection in white gold plating. We are rooting for this simple yet unique Just Flex Bracelet for Him fit for daily wear as well as for special occasions. You can easily team this up with formal shirts too!
And finally, the most trusted gold polish of them all – yellow gold. Yellow gold has been the go-to safe choice always. The shade is evergreen and been in use for over 2000 years. It is no wonder that yellow gold is the most favored colour of gold plating finish when it comes to jewellery. Closest to its natural colour, yellow gold compliments warm skin tones and evoke a vintage classy feel that emanate a timeless appeal. The greatness about yellow gold is that whether there is a stone setting or not, it is difficult to diminish its magnificence and beauty.
A piece of jewellery with a classic design, especially a traditional wedding or engagement ring crafted in yellow gold is what reputed designers and jewelers will go for when it comes to choosing a befitting shade to match the jewellery design. Symbolizing love and intimate emotion, yellow gold is made to solemnize marital rituals. Check out our range of promise, eternity, and engagement rings here on the Classic Solitaire Rings collection.
