Now that it is officially autumn and the weather is beginning to turn colder, many women are shopping for the season’s hottest looks in clothing and accessories. That means more earthy tones, layered looks, leather and, of course, gold. Autumn and gold jewellery seem to go hand in hand as the seasonal colours begin to appear throughout the UK. Some say that gold jewellery is a summertime trend, while others will say that it is inspired by the rich autumn colours.
Here at Speira, we say gold jewellery can be worn any time of year as it pairs well with just about everything and it can add a luxurious touch to any look.
Why Choose Gold Jewellery?
So, why should you choose gold jewellery? After all, all jewellery is the same, right? Actually, there is something special about gold that makes it more unique and luxurious than any other precious metal. And, while gold is always in high demand, very few people know why.
Creating beautiful gold jewellery takes a delicate balance of both science and art. This is because gold combines virtual indestructibility with lustrous beauty, extreme rarity and an ease of usability. This makes it the ideal precious metal for making jewellery. Gold is also one of the most malleable of all metals, meaning that a one-ounce piece of gold can be worked down to 5 micrometres thick, or a tenth of the diameter of a human hair. Gold can also be made so thin that it becomes a translucent and can be used on an astronaut’s visor to protect their eyes from glare.
Environmentally Friendly Gold
Environmentally friendly gold? Yes, gold is an environmentally friendly metal as it has always been recycled. Pure gold will not corrode, rust or tarnish and it cannot be destroyed by fire, it is indestructible. This means that it can be recycled over and over again which it has been for thousands of years. In fact, the gold jewellery that you are wearing right now could be centuries old and could have been worn by ancient kings and queens, including Cleopatra herself!
Another interesting feature of gold jewellery is that it is naturally hypoallergenic. For those of you with skin conditions, gold is one of the only metals you can wear without breaking out into a rash.
