A GUIDE TO OUR DIFFERENT COLOUR PIECES
JUNE 23, 2015 by GARY AT CHUPI
With so many options available, it can be tricky to choose not only what type of necklace, ring or bracelet to opt for, but what colour too. Here at Chupi many of our pieces come in three different colours: gold, silver and rose gold. Below is a short guide to each of these different options:
We started out making our pieces in gold, and to this day it remains our most popular option. Gold has that special sparkle which will always look great regardless of current fashion or trends. Naturally, gold has a warm yellow colour which resists rust and corrosion. Pure 24k gold is actually too soft for everyday wear but when alloyed with other metals such as copper or zinc it becomes more durable. Our gold pieces are cast in substantial solid sterling silver before being plated in a thick layer of 18k gold as 18k gold is the perfect balance of strength and purity, meaning our pieces are suitable for everyday wear. For those of you who love pure gold, many of our pieces are available for custom order in solid gold for that extra special piece of luxury. We will soon be adding some of these pieces to chupi.ie but in the meantime any queries can be sent to email@example.com.
18k gold comes in a variety of colours, with yellow and rose being the most popular. Regardless of which colour you choose, the gold percentage stays the same. The type of alloys used is what influence the final colour of the piece. The use of a copper alloy is what gives our rose gold pieces their warm pink-tinted sheen. Rose gold is currently experiencing a surge in popularity, and it pairs beautifully with our coloured gemstones. Just get in touch if there are any of our pieces you would like specifically made in rose gold!
As mentioned above, our gold and rose gold pieces are cast in sterling silver, prior to being plated in 18k gold. Our silver pieces don’t undergo this process however, opting for a more sleek simple look. The many varieties of our silver initial necklaces are extremely popular in silver.
