One of the most challenging things about shopping for jewelry is knowing what type of metal to choose. If you're not sure what to go for, you should consider yellow gold jewelry. Gold is a metal found on every continent in the world. It has always been treasured for its natural radiance and beauty. You should pick up some yellow gold jewelry if you don't have any in your collection.
History of Yellow Gold
Yellow gold is a stunning metal made of pure gold mixed with other metals like copper and zinc. This type of gold has been around for ages; there have been particles discovered in Paleolithic caves that date as far back as 40,000 B.C. The first confirmed evidence of humans interacting with gold appeared around 3,000 B.C. in ancient Egypt. Gold was a significant part of ancient Egyptian mythology and was highly valued by temple priests and pharaohs. When pharaohs passed on, their tombs were even laden with vast amounts of gold since the Egyptians believed it meant they would have it in the afterlife.
Gold continued to be a significant part of society as the world evolved. Early civilians associated gold with rulers and gods. People sought after it in their name and dedicated it to their glorification. Yellow gold was also commonly used to make objects for worshiping or to decorate particular religious locations.
Other ancient societies that would use yellow gold are:
In ancient Turkey, well-connected and influential people possessed gold. In ancient Greece, gold was also a symbol of wealth. Gold started being used as money in Lydia, which is now part of Turkey. Merchants would measure the gold and use it to create money because of how easily it could be formed, melted, and measured.
Since yellow gold has always been a symbol of wealth and class, it's no wonder so many people used to (and still do) love it for their jewelry. Each era of history coined its own trends for jewelry, but each has maintained the use of gold through the years. It has been used to create jewelry for many centuries. Historically, yellow gold was even the most popular metal for wedding jewelry due to its durability.
Incredible Qualities of Yellow Gold
Yellow gold has a rich history, and its qualities of the past still reign true today. Something to keep in mind about all kinds of gold is that they don’t rust, tarnish, or corrode, and won't lose their color over time. Yellow gold, in particular, is the easiest to maintain out of all gold types. It's also the most hypoallergenic of all the golds. Not to mention, it's the purest color of gold you can find.
Any yellow gold jewelry item is guaranteed to be durable and valuable because gold is built to withstand the trials of time with proper wear and care. This type of gold is excellent for making custom jewelry, as it is malleable and easy for jewelers to manipulate. Yellow gold jewelry looks beautiful on every skin tone but is especially complementary to olive and darker skin.
