Buying Gold Jewelry For Him - Articles Surfing
There is no substance that has been more fervently sought than gold. Incessantly alluring to mankind, the element gold has become increasingly popular and important in the metal industry. Gold is an extremely high valued metal that is popularly used in making jewelry primarily because of its pliability. Also, gold neither rusts nor corrodes with time. Additionally, gold is comparatively light, thus it can be comfortably and easily worn all day long as necklaces, rings, and earrings.
However, because of its softness, gold is oftentimes mixed with other metals for supplementary strength and durability. Such combination of metals (also known as alloy) makes the jewelry far more available and affordable for people.
It is undeniable that gold jewelry would make perfect gifts for women. But then it does not mean that sparkling gold jewelry is neither acceptable nor appreciated as gifts for men as well. As a matter of fact, men today are increasingly indulging in fine jewelry, such as yellow or white gold cufflinks, bracelets, necklaces, money clips, and even earrings!
In buying gold jewelry, here are some advices that can help you in choosing that genuine gold jewelry, either for you or for your male partner.
Know the Karats
Search for the mark that states the karat of the jewelry. The karat will help you identify if the jewelry item is made of real gold, as well as to let you know the amount or percentage of genuine gold that the piece contains. Gold jewelry with higher karats is noted with a warmer and richer color, as well as a higher cost or value. Pure gold is 24K and is very soft and is easily damaged. Gold combined with metals like silver, zinc, nickel, and copper are more solid and durable. The most common for men's jewelry is 18K or 14K.
Check the Trademark
Never fail to examine the trademark of the gold jewelry's manufacturer. The trademark will tell you that the manufacturer is responsible behind the quality of the jewelry, as well as the accuracy of the karat marked on it. The country where the gold jewelry originates may also be found in the mark.
Assess the Price
The cost of the gold jewelry is primarily determined by its karat and total weight, construction and design, as well as ornamental detailing. The more intricate the design, more handwork is involved and the price of the jewelry can also be higher. Unique designs by modern jewelry artists who are multi awarded can command higher price tags. The items are really exquisite and stand out among the ordinary.
Individuality in style and taste is essential in choosing gold jewelry for men. Although it doesn*t seem like it, men actually find a sense of recognition and achievement when they get to design the jewelry according to their own preferences. Hence, when you decide to buy a gold jewelry for that special man in your life, it would be a good idea if you involve him in picking out that gold jewelry that will best fit his personal style.
