Whereas most metals are grey or silvery white, Gold is slightly reddish-yellow. Common coloured Gold alloys include the distinctive eighteen-karat Rose Gold created by the addition of copper. Alloys containing palladium are also important in commercial jewellery as these produce White Gold alloys. Fourteen- and eighteen-karat Gold alloys with Silver alone appear greenish-yellow and are referred to as Green Gold. Less commonly, the addition of manganese, aluminium, indium and other elements can produce more unusual colours of gold for various applications.
If you own Pearls and are not sure if they are genuine or not, a great way to test them is to rub them on your teeth; you want the Pearl to feel slightly grainy rather than smooth.
Don’t get me wrong, I am partial to Diamonds. However, Cubic Zirconia is similar to Diamond in brilliance and clarity but is flawless. It is made in laboratories in large quantities and as such is much more affordable and in many cases, ethical... It is almost as hard as Diamond at 8.5 on the Mohs Scale in comparison to a Diamond's 10. It is not a Diamond though it has many Diamond-like qualities. Isn’t it time that we stop lusting after the Diamonds we will have "one day" and rock something just as beautiful until that day arrives? Why not?!
Jewellery is best stored individually in a soft pouch or a box with compartments away from sunlight and where harder gemstones can’t scratch softer ones.
