The two most popular colors of gold are yellow and white. When making jewelry, yellow gold is a combination of pure gold, copper, and zinc, and white gold is mixed with palladium, manganese, nickel, and silver. White gold is less likely to acquire scratches, as opposed to yellow gold. White gold tends to appear classier with diamonds than yellow gold, which has been said to appear tacky or fake.

However, yellow gold does not need to be re-plated, which can save you some money in the end. White gold looks impeccable on cool skin tones, while yellow gold is particularly lovely on people with warm skin tones. However, the current trend of jewelry is silver and platinum, which has become more popular than yellow gold.
