True white gold is only possible to make in 18k gold or lower, as at least 25 percent white metal alloy would have to be added to make the gold completely white, from its current yellow color, which would make the gold content 75 percent or 18 karat purity. The 22kt gold hand-made jewelry you see as white, is basically 22k gold jewelry dipped in a liquid, composed of white metal's alloy, which may wear off, over a period of time, to show the yellow gold, beneath the surface, the time factor may vary from a few months to a few years, depending on the type of process used to coat the finish and may also depend on the designing of the jewelry.
18k gold is harder than the 22k gold, softness in the metal is required to make the very fine filigree designs..
why is 18k white Gold Jewelry more expensive than 22k Gold Jewelry ?
The 25 percent alloy required to make the gold white is composed of expensive white metals like Platinum and Rhodium the cost of the alloy makes the process of making the 18k white gold more expensive and this in turn makes the jewelry expensive.
What are the different finishes used in the Gold Jewelry, and what are they?
Many different type of finishes are used to enhance the gold jewelry, like two-tone finish, white gold finish, enamel color, hand color, copper finish, antique finish, oxidized finish etc. all of these are used only on the surface, like paint or polish, underneath these finishes, it is all solid 22k gold metal.
The stones used in the gold jewelry are sold by the carats, (carat is the measure to weigh the weight of stones) 1 carat is equal to about 1/5 of a gram in weight, so 1 gram of stones would equal 5 times the price of the gold, even the most inferior stones cost at least about $ 15.00 to $ 20.00 per carat. which would work out to about $ 75.00 to $ 100.00 per gram for the stones. Additionally the time and labor to set the stones individually, and sorting of similar color shade and sizes in the, stones also adds to the price of the finished stone jewelry product.
