JEWELRY - Gold Jewelry (Jewellery)
 
India is the world’s largest gold consumer of jewelry, accounting for the largest consumer in volume terms, accounting for 24% of demand in 2008. (At any point of time China may overtake India)For the last several decades, India has been the largest purchaser of gold in the global context and more than 90 per cent of this is for conversion to jewellery (Jewelry). China is the world's largest gold producer who overtook South Africa in 2007.

Gold jewelry is available in different types of karat like 10k, 14k, 18k ,22k, etc. 24k gold is the purest form of gold and it is not generally used for ornaments as it is very soft and might get easily damaged.

Also gold Jewelry is available in different colours. They are the yellow gold, white gold, green gold, Pink and rose gold and Black Hills Gold. (Most Black Hills Gold jewelry uses 10K or 12K gold alloys in shades of yellow, pink, rose, and green.)

 
 
White Gold
White gold is an alloy of gold and at least one white metal, usually nickel or palladium. Nickel can cause dermatitis to people who are sensitive to nickel. Though the Palladium is expensive, it is less likely to cause allergic reactions than nickel.

 

Rose & Pink Gold Alloys
Copper is added to make gold-colored alloys and the increased percentage of copper creates pink and rose tones -- the more copper, the deeper the effect. As it was popular in Russia at the beginning of the nineteenth century, it is also known as Russian gold. A common alloy for rose gold is 75% gold and 25% copper by mass (18 karat).
 
 
Green Gold Alloys
Greenish shades are created by adding silver to gold. It appears as a greenish yellow, rather than as green. A mix of gold 75% and silver 25% gets 18 karat green gold. Fired enamels adhere better to these alloys.
