THE DIFFERENT COLOURS OF GOLD

Pure gold does not mean that gold is 100% pure. Because of its malleability, it is an alloy with other metals such as nickel, silver, copper and many others.

There are several variables of gold alloyed with other metals. This generally applies to different colors of gold. As a result, a more rosy gold color can be changed by increasing the copper concentration.

The hue and color of the gold is directly determined by the type of alloy used and the concentration of each alloy.
