Things you should avoid wearing at weddings!

I know you want to look great on your sister or brother or friends marriage but what if you wear too much and it is completely faux pas. In order to avoid such things and make you look beautiful on a fundamental event, we have some things which you should avoid. Not only avoid rather boycott it on such events. This will not only make you look amazing but also adds an elegant touch to your look. So, in order to avoid such embarrassing situations let us now discuss the things which you can completely avoid at weddings and events. Keep reading:

If you have bought a pair of brand new shoe and this is the first time you will be wearing one, then hang on! You need to think a little bit about those shoes which you are about to wear on the day because attending a wedding does not mean sitting at a place, I am sure you will be moving from table to table and on the dance floor too so slipping in glossy new stilettos could be a problem unless you are pro in carrying your heels!

Wearing a white dress, somehow wearing one white color dress could be a problem. Why? Because according to Indian tradition, the color white is supposed to be worn on sad occasions according to some people. Also, I personally feel this might a dull color, if worn at weddings. A total snowy white dress is a big no from my side at least.

Anything too revealing, now wearing something too revealing might be uncomfortable for you in front of your elders. That dress or gown might look wonderful but donning one on the wedding with that deep neck or too revealing slits might create a problem. So, wear something in which you feel comfortable and can simply walk and turn around in the banquet or farm.

 

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.

What is a karat?
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.

What makes rose gold rose?
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. Other accessories such as bracelets, rings, necklaces etc are also widely made with the use of rose gold jewelry. Interlocking rings, Russian wedding rings, are popularly made with the use of white, yellow and rose gold. This gold is also widely used as an accent metal in many kinds of jewelry. 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.
