Often we get clients who believe their gold may not be worth as much because of the colour of their gold. We thought we’ll write something to help those individuals out so they have an idea what their valuables are worth. First and foremost, “gold” comes in three main identified colours; yellow, white and rose. Now, we would like to point out the only factor that influences your valuable is the carat/karat of gold, which means purity. Gold jewelry is 99.9% of the time mixed with other metals for it to hold its shape. As long as the gold purity is distinguished, the same rate applies to all colours of gold. For example, white gold has more zinc, whereas yellow gold is usually mixed with more nickel. These additional metals are what changes the colour of your jewelry, not gold.
