How to Choose Gold Karat and Colour

Are you looking to select the right jewellery for yourself or someone special? Before exploring different styles, let’s start with the basics of karat and colours of gold

Here's a short and helpful guide to choosing the right gold karat and colour:

Understand Karat Options

ATTIC’s gold jewellery collection is available in different karat options, such as 18K, and 14K, and for select pieces, we can offer customization to 21K. Remember that higher karat gold has a higher purity but is also a bit softer. Consider the balance between purity and durability that suits your lifestyle and preferences.

Consider Durability

If you plan to wear your gold jewellery regularly, durability is crucial. 18K and 14K gold are popular choices for everyday jewellery as they are more resistant to scratches and wear compared to higher karat gold.

Think about Colour

Gold is available in various colours, including yellow, white, and rose gold. Yellow gold is the most traditional and classic option, while white gold offers a contemporary and elegant look. Rose gold has a warm and romantic appearance. Choose a colour that matches your personal style and skin tone.

Mix and Match: Don't limit yourself to just one colour. Many people enjoy creating a mix of gold colours by layering or stacking different pieces. Mixing white, yellow, and rose gold can create a unique and personalized look.

Consider Skin Sensitivities

Some individuals may have sensitivities or allergies to certain metals. Although it’s rare, if you have very sensitive skin, consider choosing higher karat gold, which contains more pure gold to minimize the risk of irritation.

Budget Considerations

Different karat levels and gold colours come with varying price points, with higher karats increasing in price. Consider your budget and prioritize what matters most to you—whether it's a higher purity, durability, or a specific colour.

Remember, choosing the right gold karat and colour is a personal decision based on your style, budget, and lifestyle. By considering these factors, you can make an informed choice that allows you to enjoy your gold jewellery for years to come.
