Gold Wedding Bands
Gold is a widespread used metal from the Precious Metals Group. It has been used in the jewelry industry for centuries, and remains one of the best selling metals within wedding bands. Gold is a timeless look, and will be a piece of jewelry that will continue to be in style virtually forever. There are hundreds of options when choosing wedding rings, but for most couples their decision will depend on 2 conditions – personal preference and budget. Fortunately, Gold is the most popular choice in wedding bands and is also the most affordable metal from the Precious Metals Group.
Gold is traditionally categorized into 3 different groups, 10K, 14K, and 18K. 18K is the most pure option in Gold. It is also the softest and most susceptible to scratches and wear. Because 18K is the most pure, it is also the brightest yellow color of all 3 groups. It is also the most expensive. 10K is the least pure, and is much more durable when comparing to 18K gold. Although it is the most affordable option, it is significantly a duller color of yellow. 14k is the most popular option, and is a perfect blend of the wonderful properties of gold.
A popular trend in today’s jewelry industry is white gold. Gold in its true and natural form is a rich bright yellow. In order to change the appearance to white, the Gold is blended with alloys such as nickel, zinc and copper to essentially “bleach” out the color. Finally, the gold is rhodium plated to give it a bright white appearance. It is important to know that over time this outer plating can wear off, thus revealing the yellow color underneath. White gold will need to be regularly maintained. Typically once every year or two, white gold rings should have the rhodium plating added once again to their ring to maintain the bright white color. This process typically costs $20-$30. For those who love the whiteness of white gold, but are looking for something with less “maintenance”, palladium and platinum are both naturally white options from the Precious Metals Group, and are a great alternative to white gold.
Gold is a great option for matching wedding bands. It is very popular for couples to coordinate their wedding bands to match.
