Plain and Precious: Plain Gold Earring Designs
If gold is regarded as the king of all precious metals, there must be something special and majestic about it, right? A fascinating feature of this metal is that it looks beautiful no matter how you design an ornament with it. A piece of jewellery made of gold and diamonds is a thing of beauty and when gold is studded with colourful gems, its beauty knows no bounds. But gold doesn’t always need a diamond or precious stone to look good, and a piece of artfully designed plain gold ornament is more beautiful than all the gems and stones in the world put together. That’s probably why plain gold earring designs never go out of fashion and they always enjoy a safe and secure position in a woman’s jewellery collection.
The not-so-plain history of plain gold earrings
Ancient people learned how to make ornaments with plain gold much before they mastered the art of gem-setting. Hoops, studs, and tube-shaped earrings made of plain gold were popular in Persia and Egypt. In olden times, western sailors wore plain gold earrings as a sign commemorating their first crossing of the equator. Such earring served another purpose too – if a sailor drowned and washed ashore, the earrings were used as money to give them a proper burial.
Over the centuries, people started embellishing their ear ornaments with precious stones but that didn’t reduce the popularity of plain gold earrings. New patterns emerged, new designs conquered the industry, and new themes and motifs entered the world of jewellery making. Plain gold earrings embraced these changes and went ahead making a permanent mark in the jewellery industry.

Elegantly and elaborately designed hoops, dangles, and drops earrings are also becoming a favourite with many modern customers.

A lot of yellow, a bit of white: Plain gold earrings with rhodium plating
Is your idea of plain gold earrings that of a bright and glossy piece designed in monotonous yellow colour? Then gold earrings with rhodium plating will take you by surprise. Jewellery designers nowadays plate gold earrings with rhodium, a silvery white metal, to break the monotony of yellow gold ornaments. Rhodium plating not only gives plain gold earrings a stylish and contemporary appeal but also make them highly resistant to scratches and corrosion. What’s more, jewellers have redefined the glitter of gold by giving such earrings the non-glossy matte finish. Many plain gold earring designs in BlueStone’s collection such as the Courtney Earrings, the Meadow Beauty Earrings, and the Rujula Earrings are plated with rhodium and they will add a lot of yellow and a bit of white to your jewellery collection.
