I've always been naturally drawn to warm colors. Among all the warm hues, gold stands out as the ultimate color of opulence, radiance, and richness. However, my love for gold extends far beyond its captivating color. In this blog post, I delve into why I personally adore working with gold and why it holds a special place in our jewelry creations.
Should I Wear Gold Or Silver Jewelry?
Clients and even friends sometimes ask us the question, "Should I wear silver or gold jewelry?" When deciding between gold or silver jewelry, it ultimately comes down to personal preference. But if you appreciate timeless allure and versatility, then the rich, lustrous hue of gold could be for you. Need to be convinced? Here are six reasons gold is worth buying and wearing.
Gold's Timeless Appeal
Gold jewelry holds a timeless quality that seems to have existed for eternity. Its use in jewelry dates back to as early as 4000 B.C., and yet it never loses its charm. While fashion trends may come and go, gold always retains an aura of timelessness, adding a touch of elegance and sophistication to any design.
One of the reasons I cherish gold jewelry is its versatility across seasons. Regardless of the weather, gold pieces can seamlessly elevate any outfit. During hot and sticky summers, gold accessories exude a cool and effortless vibe, allowing me to make a style statement even when I'm sweating in the sun. In the winter months, gold brings a warm, inviting glow that beautifully complements the coziness of the season.
Durability for Generations
One of the remarkable aspects of gold is its inherent strength. Compared to silver, gold is much more enduring, making it an ideal choice for creating heirloom pieces. While slight signs of wear may appear over time, depending on the gold karat, gold jewelry can be passed down from one generation to the next, carrying with it not only its beauty but also the cherished memories and stories of the wearers who came before.
When it comes to caring for delicate jewelry, gold provides a welcome advantage. Thanks to its durability, gold pieces can withstand everyday wear without losing their luster. What's more, gold doesn't tarnish, eliminating the need to worry about the effects of perfumes, lotions, or chlorine on the metal or its accompanying gemstones. With gold, I can enjoy my jewelry with ease, knowing it will maintain its brilliance with minimal effort.
Versatility Across Skin Tones
One of the most delightful aspects of gold is its ability to enhance all skin tones, making it a versatile base when experimenting with different accessories. Whether it's silver, platinum, rose gold, or any other metal, don't hesitate to mix and match. Embrace the freedom to create unique combinations that reflect your personal style and highlight the beauty of your complexion.
A Dream for Craftsmanship
From the perspective of jewelry making and fabrication, gold presents a dream come true. Its properties make it significantly more forgiving to work with compared to silver, offering flexibility and ease during the crafting process. The soldering experience with gold is a true pleasure due to its unique heating characteristics, allowing me, as a skilled artisan, to bring intricate and exquisite designs to life.
