Where do the different colours of gold come from?
It is also thanks to its alloy that gold, originally yellow, can take on other colours, for example pink, red, grey and white. If you can't decide between a white gold bracelet and a yellow gold bracelet, be aware that it is above all a question of looking for sparkle, style, and colour best suited to your skin.
Gold is a very soft precious metal in its pure form. Traded gold will never be pure, because it must be mixed with other materials to gain strength and resistance. BAUNAT helps you choose the best option for your budget and desires in its article on yellow or white gold engagement rings.
Gold needs to be alloyed with other materials if jewellery is to be rigid enough to be worn as it should. It is precisely these different types of alloy that give gold its beautiful shades.
So, to get yellow gold, you have to combine silver and copper. To obtain white gold, the first step is to manufacture grey gold with a silver and copper alloy, but with a different mix. Grey gold will then be wrapped in a thin film of rhodium to give a whiter lustre.
The differences between a white gold bracelet and a yellow gold bracelet
The choice of a yellow gold bracelet or a white gold bracelet depends primarily on your desires. However, since yellow gold is made with the lowest alloy to retain its yellow colour, it can easily become scratched over time.

Choose your gold bracelet according to your style and skin colour
The first question to ask when buying a gold bracelet is this: will it suit your style and your silhouette? Will it show you in your best light? If you have white skin, the best is to opt for a yellow gold bracelet, which will flatter your skin.
This will also be the case for women with darker or olive skin. On the other hand, if you are browner or have a porcelain complexion of, a bracelet in white gold will be better. If you want a yellow gold or white gold bracelet to wear on special occasions, opt for a model set with diamonds for greater impact and design.
