9CT ROSE GOLD CABLE CHAIN
Fine and delicate, this cable chain would be a beautiful addition to any jewellery hoard, accompanying a pendant it would ensure the pendant takes centre stage while complementing it. Available in 16" to 24".
Pure Gold as it comes out of the ground is yellow in colour. When 9k Gold and 18k Gold is used in jewellery, it is alloyed with other metals to make it stronger and more affordable. It is therefore possible to change the appearance of the gold by using different types of alloys.
Whilst Silver or Palladium is used to change gold into White Gold, copper is normally used as an alloy to create Rose Gold (also known as Pink Gold or Red Gold). Many people believe that Rose Gold is old Gold and whilst it is true that copper has been used as an alloy for many years, possibly longer than using Silver, the colour of a gold piece of jewellery has little to do with age, other than the styles of certain eras.
Today, Rose Gold is becoming increasingly popular as designers make light Pink Gold by annealing gold with a mixture of both silver and copper. This light pink colour can look stunning when used with gemstones such as Morganite, Pink Spinel and Pink Sapphires.
