Difference in Yellow, White and Rose Gold - Tulsa Gold and Gems

What's the difference between Yellow Gold, White and Rose Gold?

 

Well as far as what we pay, they are all worth the same; their color does not influence their value.

Generally, there is very little difference between the alloys of gold. Basically they're gold with some other metals added either to change the color, as is the case with White and Rose Gold.

 

White Gold is an alloy of gold and at least one white metal mixed in, usually nickel or palladium.

White Gold's properties can vary dramatically depending on the metals and proportions used in the mix. This is done deliberately for different purposes for example, mixing gold with nickel makes it harder which is perfect for rings and brooch pins.

If you mix gold with a soft metal such as palladium then it becomes good for gemstones settings where a pliable gold alloy is required.

 

Rose Gold is made when you mix gold with copper since copper has a reddish color naturally, (gold and copper are the only colored metals, all the rest are silverish in color).

Rose Gold may also vary quite a lot in color depending on the amount of copper mixed with the gold, the higher the copper content the more reddish the color.
