Jewellery has always played an important role since the beginning of times, by being a symbol of various things from the culture and heritage to signifying wealth and prosperity. India has had a long relationship with jewellery making, going back more than a thousand years, and has always been helmed for its beautiful and elegant designs. With each new era and ruler, the styles and designs of jewellery too changed, making each of them distinctive of their respective times. This in turn, has only made the jewellery making of India to be even more unique, as one can find a wide range between the different rulers and each style or design signifies something specific from each area where it came from.
In this area, gold is perhaps the most popular metal ever used, and India’s connection with gold has spanned a long time, as there was a once a time when India was called the ‘Golden Bird’. The gold jewellery designs of our country, had mesmerized the entire world, and still people from all over the world, are interested in the Indian jewellery making. Gold has also made its mark in the investment circuit and is considered to be a good commodity asset and many people buy gold just for the fact that it is a profitable investment area.
Now, with the changing times, the face of the typical gold jewellery too is evolving and the market has introduced a few different types of gold jewellery. These along with the regular gold are quite in demand due to their unusual look and the fact that it allows designers to play around with new styles and makes of jewellery.

Rose gold is massively popular with women all over the world, and it is surprising, as it has not been in market that long. Rose gold is such that it is not just used in jewellery, but watches, bracelets, tiaras and even certain luxury smartphones. Rose gold is quite often used in designer gold jewellery, due to the look it presents with its soft pinkish hues and lending to the elegance and sophistication of the look.
White gold is formed when gold is combined with metals such as nickel, palladium or manganese, which are considered to be white gold. A bit pricier than even regular or rose gold, white gold is symbolic of wealth and luxury.
