As a result of an erroneous ratio of impurities in gold, a precious pink metal appeared. This alloy was considered defective in the Middle Ages and was not used in jewelry production. Time passed, and this type of product found fans. Every year the scope is expanding and more and more interesting products appear in the assortment of jewelry companies. How to understand the samples and is it worth buying pink and red jewelry?
What is rose gold
The type of this precious metal differs from others in the copper content in the composition. Ligature with copper gives a reddish tint. The smaller it is, the pinker the color, less pronounced. Products with a high percentage of copper are reddish with intense gloss. There is a white alloy on store shelves. The color is determined by the palladium content, sometimes there is nickel or platinum. A low percentage of silver stains the precious metal in a yellow-green hue.
What is different from usual
The difference between pink gold and traditional yellow is not only in color, but also in characteristics. The tint is obtained due to the presence in the precious metal of fractions of copper and silver. Because of them, a pinkish colored overflow is formed. Products are marked with standard samples, as with a standard familiar to everyone, from the lowest and cheapest 375 to the higher 750 and 585.
Each sample contains a specific percentage of metals. The number 375 means that the precious alloy and copper in the jewelry are equally divided, and silver is 25%. This metal is distinguished by a scarlet shade and a reddish color, reminiscent of the "mother's" treasure. The sign of test 750 on the jewelry indicates that the precious metal content is 75%, the color is bright yellow, typical. The mass of gold in the product is easy to determine. For example, to find out how much precious metal is in the ring or earrings of sample 858, you need to multiply the weight of the jewelry by 85.8% - get the mass in grams.
Mass application in jewelry received alloy 585. Such a metal is super flexible, strong and durable at the same time, the content of pure gold in it is 58.5%. The tide is gentle, attracting the attention of both ladies and young girls. The tenderness of the shade will depend on the proportion of silver and copper - the more silver, the jewel looks lighter, and vice versa.
