Get your facts right about Rose Gold Jewelry!

Rose gold is created when copper is alloyed with yellow gold. The yellow gold acquires a pinkish and warm color with the addition of copper. The rosy color is directly impacted by the addition of copper and more copper leads to a more intense and rosy color. Gold is a rather soft and delicate metal and must therefore be alloyed with some other metal to be fit to be used in making jewelry.

A karat is the unit for the measurement of the purity of gold. If a piece of gold jewelry has 24K or 24 karats as its measure of purity, it is said that the jewelry is made of pure gold. One karat equals 4.16 percent gold. If a piece of jewelry contains 18k gold, it means it is made of 75 percent gold. The rest 25 percent is said to be made of some other metal or alloy. A piece of gold which has a gold content higher than 18k is considered to be too soft for making jewelry.

The color of the Rose Gold Jewelry is directly dependent on the amount of copper used in making the gold jewelry. The most subtle rose color is found in pink gold. Pink gold gives off a radiance of gold more than pink. Rose gold is more intense in color than pink gold because of higher copper content in Red gold jewelry. The highest copper content happens to be in Red gold and it therefore has the deepest and the most intense color of all. However, it is not actually red. None of these above were actually red or pink in color.

Uses
There are a number of styles in jewelry that are perfect for using Rose gold. These are not restricted to merely women’s jewelry rather extent to men’s jewelry too. Its sophisticated and warm color makes it a perfect metal to be used in making watches.

It is a clear reflection of the ability of the metal to mix along well with other metals. As a setting for stones, rose gold works best with diamonds and earth tone-colored gemstones in shades of yellow, brown, orange, and red. The rich colors in Rose Gold complement Aquamarine, Blue Topaz, Citrine, Green Amethyst, Opal, Pearl, and Tanzanite especially well.

A string of pearls can make a fancy piece of jewelry. These can be used to add a unique and special touch to any outfit that is being worn. There are a number of ways in which these can be used.

Add Genuine Pearls to a Wedding Gown
A wedding gown is a piece of clothing which is very close to the heart of the owner. It is extremely special in its own way. However, this piece of clothing can be made even more special with the addition of a few ornaments and pearls. If there are pearls that are heirlooms, they can be added to the wedding gown to make it even more special and to add more value and sentiment to it.

Common skin care mistakes we tend to make!

Let us admit that we all do mistakes and we are quite afraid to admit those mistakes too. Skin care is quite confusing. Take a look down the beauty and skin care aisle at any drugstore, and you’re bound to feel overwhelmed. The same holds true for the rows upon rows of glittering counters in department stores with their beautiful, expensive bottles. They all sound amazing. They all tout their incredible benefits to make your skin smooth, blemish free, taut, and ageless. Of course, when it comes down to it, these miracles in a bottle are often not all they are hyped up to be. Realize it or not, there is a lot that you do throughout your day that impacts the look and feel of your skin. In any event, here are some of the more common skin care mistakes that you yourself may just be guilty of!

  • While the makeup in your cabinet probably won’t land you in the emergency room, it can still harm your skin if you forget to remove it every night. For one thing, makeup can trap dirt and oil, holding it against the skin overnight and clogging pores. So, removing makeup is the first step toward cleaning your skin, which is vital to maintaining a healthy complexion. Of course, when it comes to cleaning, there can be too much of a good thing.
  • As we get older, I am a firm believer that skin treatments can be very beneficial for keeping a youthful glow. A regular facial to remove dead skin cells and hydrate skin works wonders. Micro-needling treatments, especially when combined with hydrating agents such as hyaluronic acid and anti-oxidants can really boost skin glow. The key is to meet with a skin care specialist and plan a treatment programme that includes the best possible skin care regime for your skin.
  • Skin is the body’s largest organ and it craves moisture. Hydrated skin is healthier, fuller, smoother, and younger in overall appearance. This is just one of the many reasons that regular and ample water intake is so important for the body. So too, is moisturizing. Even oily skin requires the right formulation of moisturizer applied regularly. In fact, it may benefit even more, as skin will compensate for lack of proper moisture by producing even more oil.
