Build a Gold Wardrobe
Think of building a wardrobe of gold jewellery where you can mix and match and create a different look every time. Get a gold chain, a pendant and jhumkas, which are detachable.

Try The Different Colours of Gold
Most of the jewellery done on gold is not hundred percent gold, but is mixed with an alloy, mostly platinum. This is because pure gold is too soft to resist prolonged handling. To increase its hardness gold may also be alloyed with silver, copper and a little zinc to produce a special shade of gold. As the proportion of silver increases, the color of gold changes from the bright yellow to white. Explore the different finishes that add mystery to your wardrobe.
Bit About Karats
When you go to buy gold you would be told of karats. The content of gold alloys is expressed in 24ths, called karats; a 12-karat gold alloy is 50 percent gold, and hence a 24-karat gold is pure. Most of the jewellery is in 22karats. If you should want gems embedded on gold then what you would be getting is 18-karat gold.
As you make your selection, try not to go in for too much of heavy jewellery. Apart from that set which you plan to wear on the D-day, go in for lighter designs. They are evergreen and classy which could go with your everyday attire and special occasions too. Guess these tips are enough to make you ready for Gold.
