What Is Indian Yellow Gold?

Indian yellow gold is a beautiful and rare material used in jewelry. It was originally created by combining 24 karat white gold with copper from melted down coins. This process creates an intense color that many people have fallen in love with because of its unique and memorable nature.


Indian yellow gold is a bright, pure yellow color. Indian yellow first originated in India in the 15th century, where it was known as piuri or purree.

Indian Yellow Gold is made from mixing gold with copper and other metals such as silver or zinc. This mixture gives it its characteristic rich golden brown color that makes it different than pure gold.

Indian yellow gold was popular in the 19th century as an alternative to white or rose-gold items like wedding rings and jewelry. It's still used today by jewelers who want to create something that looks more luxurious than silver or platinum but isn't quite as expensive as solid 18k white gold (which is usually mixed with other metals).

Style Tips With Indian Gold

Indian yellow gold is a great way to add a bright pop of color to your outfit. It’s also a great way to add some extra vibrancy to any jewelry you already have and make it stand out even more! 

It looks beautiful both in the light and the dark, so it's perfect for those who like to wear their jewelry on their wrists or necklaces. This means you can use it to accessorize for daytime and evening events.
