Gold Jewelry

Gold has been highly valued ever since prehistoric times in India and the world over. Gold is a precious metal and has been used as currency in many ancient cultures. The most popular use of gold has been in making jewelry. A jewelry item made in gold not only have the quality of luster, shine and beauty, but the fair amount of dignity is also attached with it.Gold does not react with air or water and thus is ideal for making durable jewelry. Pure gold is soft and has to be mixed with silver, copper or other metals to make it hard. Most gold jewelry nowadays is hallmarked. Hallmarked gold jewelry is an official marking made on gold by an assay office which guarantees the purity of the gold.

Gold jewelry is measured in carats. Pure gold is of 24 carats. A lower carat indicates higher percentages of other metals. Some low carat gold is sold as white gold. It has no resale value, but is still very popular as a jewelry metal. Modern gold jewelry has a carat of twenty or higher. Gold jewelry is a good way of investment. Gold is a solid asset which will always have high monetary value. Different finishes are created in gold jewelry. The most common finishes for gold jewelry are; high polish, satin/matte, brushed and hammered. The most common gold jewelry is high polished gold jewelry.
