Fancy Coloured Golds
There are a number of different gold alloys on the market today that are a nice variation from your typical white or yellow gold, each with there own individual attributes that lend themselves to a number of uses, to create a high end piece that won't fine anywhere else.
Rose gold is the most traditional of all coloured golds. It has been around for generations. It is created by adding copper to the alloy. It comes in both 9ct and 18ct, with the 18ct being most advised as it has a stronger colour for a greater contrast when placed next to other colours, especially with yellow.

Green gold is an alloy made by adding Cadmium or Silver to pure gold. It is great for accenting pieces and creating the leaves or vines in floral designs. For best results a mate finish is suggested to increase the intensity of the green colour.
Purple gold is a fairly new alloy to the jewellery industry and is made by adding Aluminium to pure gold. It is quite a vivid colour unlike many other types of coloured golds. The one downside to this alloy is that on its own it is quite brittle. For this reason it is generally only used for inlay to give it the support it needs.
