What color of gold for a woman's wedding ring?
All the women's wedding rings offered for sale on Lepage’s eshop are 18k gold (750 gold) rings the finest quality of gold that can be found. Did you know that? Immutable, gold is infinitely reusable, just melt it down to reuse it. At Lepage, we use recycled gold to make our Jewelry in order to limit our ecological footprint as much as possible. Some of this gold is directly bought back from our customers, so we give a second life to your old jewelry, while preserving the planet's resources.
What is 18k gold (750 gold)?
The gold used in jewelry is called «750 thousandths» (which corresponds to 18k gold) because this metal is actually composed of 75% pure gold, and 25% of other precious metals, which are used to give it a specific color, and strength. Indeed, pure gold as found in its natural state is too malleable to be used as such. It is therefore combined with silver, copper or palladium to be worked into jewelry that will not warp when worn.
White gold, before it is processed, is also called «grey gold». Indeed, it is the last step of preparation of the jewel that will give it its beautiful bright color! This last step, rhodium plating, consists of depositing a very thin layer of rhodium (an extremely rare and precious metal) on the entire jewel, so as to cover it. This operation should be renewed regularly, every two or three years, so that your jewel never loses its beauty and remains radiant as on the first day!
With its sunny aura, yellow gold has been used for thousands of years to make jewelry, especially wedding rings. A true benchmark, yellow gold is generally what the mere mention of the material "gold" evokes in us. Highly resistant to corrosion, stainless and unalterable, a piece of yellow gold Jewelry naturally reveals its beautiful golden color when it is simply polished, without any additional treatment. It will thus retain its beautiful hue over time, without developing a patina.
To obtain rose gold, the alloy that makes it up has a larger share of copper. It is from this metal that the soft roseish hues that rose gold is known for come from. From one Maison to another, the shade of rose can vary from very weak to more pronounced, depending on the amount of copper in the alloy. Each brand therefore offers rose gold Jewelry in slightly different colors! Less cold than white gold, and less classic than yellow gold, rose gold is a good compromise if you are looking for a modern and precious wedding ring. Today, rose gold is one of the most used metals in jewelry, and is increasingly favored by jewelers.
How to recognize a 18k gold (750/1000 gold) jewelry
In order to know the quality of the gold in which your engagement ring is made, you can check the hallmarks that have struck on the piece. The first type of hallmark is the so-called guarantee hallmark, or title hallmark. The Eagle head hallmark guarantees a 18k gold (750 gold) while the hallmark representing a scallop identifies 585 thousandths gold jewelry (14k), and the trefoil-shaped hallmark concerns 375 thousandths gold Jewelry (9k). These official authentication hallmarks are accompanied by the master hallmark, which is that of the jeweler who made the piece, attesting to the provenance and quality of the jewelry.
