I've heard that about white gold wedding rings turning dull over time. (But one can have them replated.)

It funny you mention that the standard is different around the world. Until recently I had no idea there was anything other than 18 and 24 karat - because that what all the gold jewelry is around here.

See where I live, I see a lot of 14K, a bit of 10K, and then some 18K. The 20's you rarely ever see, unless it's something that is 24K gold plated. I do like the brightness of the 22K gold though, a lot of really low grade golds look very tacky on my skin.

Meg, I totally agree ideally + aesthetically. But the higher the K, the softer the metal is. For rings worn every day, this would probably get dented, banged, etc.

But I agree its gorgeous =)

Indian people are absolutely crazy about gold!

When it comes to gold i don't think i've ever worn anything less than 22k. My mother has quite a big collection of indian jewellery that has been passed down generation to generation through our family and some of it is absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately its too expensive and flash to be wearing everday, so it only comes out when their is a party, wedding etc

oh, I just found this thread.

I never really thought about karat until I got a beautiful Gurhan necklace for my birthday. The 24-karat gold is really so much brighter and more beautiful. I am totally a convert.

all the designs posted here are gorg
