1- Does gold suit me?

Maybe you have thought of this before, maybe you will think about it for the first time. I have prepared two blog posts to guide you on this subject. 

The first one is 'Mirror mirror, tell me what is my color?' The second is 'Gold or silver?'

As I explained in these two articles, you should first analyze yourself well, in order to create a style that suits you. Very easy and fun technique; 12 season color analysis.

 

After determining your own seasonal type with this technique, you can find the metal that suits your seasonal colors and other details about its appearance (such as matte-glossy) from the list.

Have you decided if gold is the right choice for you?

Have you ever asked yourself this question? Or did you feel a warmth or coldness against silver? This may have something related with which of the 12 season types you are. If you say what is it, take a look at my blog posts 'Mirror mirror, tell me what is my color?' and 'Gold or Silver?'.

 

When you find your season type, you will also find which metal is right for you.

3- What should I pay attention to  gold jewelry?

3- What should I pay attention to when buying gold jewelry?

When buying gold jewelry, pay attention to the following.

1-Quality

  • Make sure that there are no very thin and deformable parts.

  • Check if it has parts to catch on your clothes, especially claw settings.

  • Stones, inlays, enamels should not be cracked, raised or moved. 

  • There should be no scratches or wear on it.

2-Price

  • There should be a hallmark indicating  the carat of the jewelry.

  • Be sure that the weight covers only the gold parts, as the weight directly affects the price.

  • Control if the stones are original or synthetic. For this, you can get an expert's opinion, request a certificate, and research the reliability of the seller.

  • Another element that makes a price difference on jewelry is workmanship. The more effort put into a product, the higher its price will be. If you think you need support on this matter, consult an expert.

  • The color of rose gold, white gold etc. is due to the alloy inside. Since these alloys are inexpensive, they do not affect the price. The important thing is the carat of the gold jewelry.

  • On some websites, gold is used to indicate the coating color.

4- What should I pay attention to when buying silver jewelry?

When buying silver jewelry, pay attention to the following.

  • There should be a hallmark indicating its carat. The ideal carat in silver jewelry is 925. Fine silver is soft enough to bend and twist in hand. Several different alloys are added to the silver to make it harder. Copper is generally preferred. This causes  corrosion. Hence, darkening is usual.

  • Be sure that the stones are original or synthetic as this will directly affect the price.

  • Be sure that there are no very thin and deformable parts.

  • The stone used directly affects the price. Ask and be sure if the stones are original or synthetic.

  • Labor is an other factor affecting the price. If you think you need support on this matter, consult an expert.

  • On some websites, silver is used to indicate the coating color.
