It may appear discolored, mainly because the original color of white K gold is yellow, and the surface of the plating “rhodium” wear will reveal the character of the actual color, so the color is off or discolored the situation. However, the current jewelry technology has solved this problem.
The second type: Golden yellow 18K gold

9K, 10K, and 14K gold in the Chinese jewelry market is relatively rare and more common in Europe and the United States. Because the gold content is low, the production cost is not down, and Chinese people are concerned about the collection value, so they generally do not use 9K, 10K, or 14K gold as wedding ring material. As Chinese jewelry manufacturers, we make 9K, 10K, and 14K gold, basically for foreign trade export.
