Looking for a new way to showcase your individual sense of style? The search is over — black gold is here! Black gold is a great way to rock staples, like rings, necklaces and bracelets, with a vibe that’s playfully unique, and totally you.
Before you start shopping (don’t worry, we’ll get there soon), there’s a few things you should know about this new way to accessorize like how it’s made, how to wear it and how to score great quality pieces.
At Oomiay, we know black gold is the next big thing — especially for girls that break the mold, like you! Here’s everything you need to know about how to take on the next top trend in jewelry.
What Is Black Gold?
You know all the classics: yellow gold, white gold and rose gold, and now there’s a new classic to add to your collection: black gold. But it’s not a completely new type of metal. In fact, it’s the same high-quality gold you know and love — just treated a bit differently for a fresh, new look!
Like rose gold or white gold, black gold doesn’t just exist in nature. It has to be created from traditional yellow gold through a variety of different methods. Typically, yellow gold can be plated with black rhodium mixed with other metals like cobalt to create a rich, dark finish, or lasered to completely alter the surface of the gold. At Oomiay, we use black gold that’s high-quality at a price point that every girl will love.
Oomiay's Take on the Trend
Because black gold is a new trend, it can be a bit uncommon and hard to find. At Oomiay, we love to make hot new jewelry trends accessible to as many girls as possible, and black gold is no exception — which is why we’ve created our own Black Gold Jewelry Collection.
Like all of our collections, our Black Gold styles are made using our signature triple-dipped plating process to achieve five microns of high-quality 14k black gold. That results in gold plating that is five times thicker than the industry standard, that is still affordable — meaning you can mix and match black gold pieces to your heart’s content.
Black in Action: Caring for Your Black Gold
Like all gold-plated jewelry, a little bit of TLC goes a long way towards keeping your collection sparkling. Care for your black gold pieces just like you would care for the other accessories you love – avoid scratches by keeping it dry and clean, and be sure to remove it if you plan to work out or get your hands dirty.
If you’re looking for a new jewelry trend to try before everyone else, consider black gold your new go-to. Once you work a few new pieces into your regular rotation, it’s sure to become a staple in your accessory game for years to come.
