If you are into gold body jewelry but not looking to spend a fortune, gold plating might just be the thing for you. 18 karat gold plated nose jewelry is sought after for its color and shine and is a great alternative to solid gold nose jewelry which is becoming less and less affordable to the general public with the steady rise in the value of gold.
Besides the reduced price, what are the advantages of gold plated nose jewelry in general?
Gold is basically indestructible, fully recyclable and can be crafted so finely you can see through it. It is also hypoallergenic and overall a safe and stylish metal for nose jewelry. One big issue when working with pure gold however is it’s softness which makes it unsuitable for a number of body jewelry designs. Therefore it is necessary to combine pure gold with other metals such as copper or silver to improve it’s hardness. The resulting gold plating alloy is then applied as a thin layer onto the surface of another metal, in most cases surgical steel, resulting in increased durability.
Rose gold, also known as pink gold and red gold is made of pure gold mixed with copper, silver and at times zinc. Therefore rose gold is an alloy just like white gold.
The added metals help to strengthen the gold and give it its rose color.
The difference between red, rose, pink and gold is the copper content – the higher the copper content, the stronger the color red. A frequent mix for rose gold is 75% gold and 25% copper.
Rose gold doesn’t tarnish but just like any other gold, rose gold jewelry needs to be polished and cleaned regularly to bring out that special shine.
Due to it’s pinkish-red color, rose gold is considered by many to be the most romantic metal, making rose gold body jewelry a popular gift for romantic occasions such as anniversaries and Valentine’s day.
Rose gold goes well with all skin tones and is not only more affordable than pure gold due to the fact that the copper used in it’s production costs less but it’s also more durable due to the strength of the metal copper. That is why rose gold is tougher than yellow gold or white gold and is a popular material for crafting specialized body and nose jewelry.
