5 Gold Myths Debunked

My best friend and I have many commonalities between us. We have similar taste in food, music, clothes, books, shoes and almost everything. However, one ground that we have heavy disagreements on, is our choice in Jewellery. While I am a ‘Gold Girl’, she is everything else but Gold

A common misconception about gold is that it’s ornate and pompous. My friend thought no differently until I introduced her to CaratLane an online junction for contemporary jewellery that modern women look for today. Therefore, my attempt with this write-up is to burst 5 myths about Gold and how one can spruce their everyday look with this timeless metal.

Myth 1 – Gold is Yellow

While yellow is the most common and popular form of gold, there are other shades that will take every gold critic by surprise. Some other forms known to us are white and rose. White gold is an alloy of gold, platinum, nickel and zinc while rose gold is a mix of gold copper and silver.

Thanks to a combination of metals, the texture of metal made from alloy of gold is more study and less malleable. As a result, jewellery designers and craftsmen have the freedom to experiment and design unique and exquisite jewellery pieces. The stunning filigree ring from the ‘Enchanted Collection” available at CaratLane is a fine rose gold ring that shows off an elegant and exquisite design. A perfect anniversary gift, this 18k rose gold ring is a perfect ornament for everyday wear.

Myth 2 – Gold is Bulky

In the contemporary world, the philosophy of designing gold jewellery has come a long way from being bulky to more light and practical. This departure is very much evident in the Trellis collection. Striking yet minimalist, the collection offers a range of pendants, earrings and bangles that are far cry from bulky. Instead the design is very intricate, feminine, minimal, simply exquisite and spells class.
