Yellow Gold Earrings

Yellow gold earrings are the most common and traditinal gold earrings. 14K gold earrings are very popular in Western countries, but in Asian countries yellow gold earrings are more often 18K or 22K gold.

White Gold Earrings

White gold rings are gaining in popularity even though they might be confused with silver earrings, as from afar they present a similar color. 

 

The gold color is manipulated by alloying it with nickel and zinc, typically, to make it closer to a platinum color, or "white gold". 

 

White gold may also be alloyed with palladium.
