Gold jewelry is a classic staple of many wardrobes. In fact, it dates all the way back to ancient Egyptian civilization, where gold was a common jewelry material. Today, it is still an important part of our outfits in modern times. And while gold jewelry has remained, our senses of style have changed drastically over the years. Finding color combinations with gold within your own wardrobe can be an interesting and exciting task.
Yellow gold jewelry has a classic and timeless appeal. Finding color combinations with yellow gold means finding a palette that that is equally classic. Yellow gold jewelry is complemented well with rich jewel tones, like emerald, sapphire, and amethyst. While you’ll find great contrast with black, it’s best to avoid neutral colors like grey and beige when trying to find ideal color combinations with gold, as these types of colors tend to dull the appearance of yellow gold.
It’s also exciting to colors that match with gold jewelry among other pieces of jewelry. Beautiful diamond or cubic zirconia gemstones create stunning color combinations with yellow gold jewelry as well.
There’s a stunning quality to white gold jewelry that makes it a popular choice for unique rings, bracelets, necklaces and chain jewelry. Finding color combinations with white gold that pair well requires an eye for style.
White gold looks stunning and elegant when paired with classic silhouettes and designs like a little black dress, or clothing with gold accents and deep colors like burgundy and forest green. This may seem like a no-brainer, but don’t count out white clothing as a beautiful complement for your favorite pieces of white gold jewelry. While the aforementioned colors that match with white gold make some classic combinations, white gold is almost a universally flattering jewelry choice and will look stunning with just about anything in your wardrobe. Jewelry made from white gold also pairs beautifully with sparkly diamonds for a simple, tasteful piece.
Rose gold has become a trendy and fun jewelry type to wear in lieu of traditional yellow or white gold pieces. Rose gold jewelry works beautifully as a contemporary statement piece and can also pair well with classic pieces of jewelry that you already wear regularly.
To find jewelry color combinations with rose gold, consider first integrating a piece of multi-color jewelry into your collection, such as a delicate bracelet that features yellow, white and rose gold detailing. If you or your loved one is a true rose gold enthusiast, a forever piece like a diamond rose gold ring may make for the perfect proposal.
The delicate femininity of rose gold jewelry makes it perfect for everyday wear, as well as easy to dress up for more formal occasions. It will make a statement no matter what you wear, so try pairing your rose gold pieces with neutral colors to help them pop — beige, black and even white attire will give your look a polished edge.

The celebration of a baby’s christening or baptism is a significant and special milestone in the eyes of God, as well as family and godparents. The holy sacrament of baptism represents the washing away of the child’s original sign and welcoming into the family of the church and the beginning of his or her spiritual journey in life.
Finding a unique christening gift to mark this occasion is important, as the child will have the gift to mark a milestone that he or she may not remember otherwise. Offering the infant baby jewelry for the christening ceremony is a thoughtful gift that can be appreciated by the family and will photograph beautifully for memories that will be looked back upon for years to come. The child will also have a stunning token to remember the day of their christening in the future and the jewelry can serve as a wonderful symbol of his or her faith.
Gifting a ring with a religious symbol, such as the Virgin Mary, to a child of faith is a beautiful way to commemorate the occasion of his or her christening and can be cherished by the child and his or her family for a lifetime. David’s Gold offers a wide selection of baby jewelry for christenings, which can make the perfect keepsake.
These beautiful religious rings are made of solid 14K gold and are unique in their intricate detailing and dual-gold color design highlighting the stunning image of Virgin Guadalupe. Another stunning choice is a ring featuring hands in prayer, lovingly encircled with a heart-shaped design and cubic zirconia accents. Choosing a solid gold ring means investing in a high quality and unique christening gift that speaks for itself.
Baby jewelry for christenings doesn’t have to feature a religious element and many people opt for jewelry with a more childlike and whimsical feel that will be a sentimental piece that can be treasured in the family.
A sweet piece of jewelry, like a quality gold ring with a beautifully-crafted teddy bear and stunning gemstone at the center or a simple 14K gold ring with a simple baby feet design, offer the perfect amount of beauty and display of affection and love for the child celebrating his or her christening. David’s Gold also offers a beautiful selection of gold rings with unique accents that feature the words “baby,” “boy” or “girl” artfully incorporated into the designs that make lovely baby jewelry gifts for christenings.
There’s something especially sweet and delicate about a baby bracelet that makes it the ideal gift of baby jewelry for a christening. These unique christening gifts are available in a wide variety of well-crafted and beautiful designs at David’s Gold.
Choosing a tri-color baby bracelet, like one with multi-colored linked hearts and good luck images on a solid gold plate, will make for a stunning christening gift and piece that the child’s family will love to show off.

What Goes Into Making the Perfect Gold Ring?
In the world of jewelry, there is little else as well-known and perfectly classic as the simple gold ring. These pieces can be made in a variety of styles and from various types of gold, each resulting in a unique piece of jewelry with timeless elements. So, how are gold rings made?
The Right Ingredients
Before a gold ring can even begin to take shape, choosing quality materials is an important step. The overwhelming majority of gold used in jewelry is an alloy including other metals. 24 karat, or pure gold, is too soft and would scratch and bend too easily. 14k gold, a standard for jewelry production, actually contains 58.3%, or 14/24ths gold so that the finished jewelry is hard enough to hold its shape.
So if 14k gold is 58% gold, what’s the rest? It depends on the jeweler making the gold ring, and the color of gold they’re looking to make. Ideally, you would want to have additional precious and semi-precious metals like silver, copper, and palladium to make a high-purity alloy. The percentage of these additional parts used will also affect its color. A higher amount of copper will result in rose gold, and using more silver will create white gold.
Premium jewelers like David’s Gold will also use only solid gold, never filled, plated, or fake. The use of high-quality gold, such as the 14k gold found in all of our products, is an ideal starting point when crafting the perfect gold ring.
It’s also necessary to have a design in mind when considering how your gold rings are to be made. Have an appropriate ring mold to fit the desired design.
Making a Gold Ring
Making a gold ring is a precise and fascinating process, but is easy to picture with some simplified basic steps:
The first step is to create the perfect mold, or casting, that will form the ring in the desired shape.
Then, using a ceramic melting crucible cup (which can withstand very high temperatures), the gold is carefully melted.
Once the gold material is melted, it is poured into the casting to create the desired ring shape and design.
Once cool, the ring will be formed and can be removed from the mold.
Additional gold or other high-quality materials may be used to create rims for jewel settings, grooves or other designs that make the ring unique.
Next, diamonds, stones or other adornments to the ring are carefully added.
Finally, a ring is cleaned in hot water and polished to look its best. Voilà!
A Beautiful Product
Making a gold ring that you will want to cherish and wear forever is a painstaking and highly individualistic process that requires experience, excellent quality materials and an eye for stunning designs. Now that you have an idea of how gold rings are made, feel free to browse the beautiful, premium quality 14k gold ring selection at David’s Gold today.
Gold rings are a classic and timeless piece that everyone should have in their wardrobe. They are perfect to gift for everyone ranging from a newborn baby to a beloved family member or partner and can be worn every day and for special occasions alike.

Learn More About Rosaries
When you give or receive beautiful rosary bead jewelry, it's important to know the significance of these special pieces. Every bead and piece has been carefully selected for your rosary bead jewelry to help the wearer strengthen his or her faith and deepen their relationship with God. Every bead on a rosary represents a special prayer to be said in a specific order. For example, the crucifix on a rosary signals where prayer should begin with the sign of the cross and recitation of the Apostles’ Creed.
The Significance of the Rosary
While the exact origins of the Rosary are not known, throughout history there have been instances of people of faith using beads and other physical symbols to represent prayer. In modern times, the rosary bead jewelry is used as a beautiful symbol of devotion to God and can be worn as a bracelet or a necklace by people of faith and used to guide them through prayer in their everyday lives and on special occasions.
Finding a quality rosary, such as a traditional golden rosary, can help you maintain and grow your faith through regular prayer and serve as a beautiful reminder of your relationship with God. Rosaries are also often given as traditional gifts on special religious occasions, such as a child's first communion, the day of a couple's wedding or for a young lady's quinceañera.
How to Pray the Rosary
The first prayer of the rosary, the Apostles Creed, talks about the mysteries of the Catholic faith and should be said while holding the crucifix, following the sign of the cross.
After reciting the Apostles’ Creed, the second prayer begins with the bead directly above the crucifix on your rosary bead jewelry. This bead signifies where should recite the “Our Father” prayer.
The following three beads represent the “Hail Mary” prayer; and next you should say the “Glory Be to the Father” on the large bead.
The following large bead represents the Fatima prayer “Oh My Jesus.”
This will be followed by the first rosary mystery and the recitation of the “Our Father” prayer.
The next 10 small beads, also known as a “decade,” refer to a “Hail Mary” prayer each while reflecting on the mystery of the rosary.
When you reach the next large bead, again recite the “Glory Be to the Father” and the Fatima prayer.
Your prayers will then continue following the same pattern, but you will substitute the next mystery each time you reach the appropriate bead.
Once your mystery prayers have been completed, conclude by reciting the “Hail Holy Queen” prayer and end with the sign of the cross.
Finding a Quality Rosary
When looking for a rosary, for yourself or as a gift, be sure to carefully research and inspect the jewelry to ensure high quality and craftsmanship. Rosary bead jewelry is something that you will treasure and handle often throughout your life, so you want to ensure that the product is able to withstand everyday use and stay beautiful for special occasions.
