Pink gold is an alloy of yellow gold, copper and silver. Its composition does not make it more or less expensive than yellow gold. The pink color is obtained by a higher percentage of copper in the alloy. In fact the more copper there is the pinker it will be.Even though pink gold has recently been in the limelight, it has existed since ancient Egypt. At that time an alloy of gold and copper was used to produce jewelry. The reasons for this specific alloy are simple: solid gold is naturally soft, mixing it with copper and silver increases its wear resistance, durability and protects it from scrapes and scratches for a long time. Previously considered too feminine, the color has gained popularity with both men and women and suits those wishing to have a piece of fine jewelry that is both discrete and original.
