Silver and Gold Jewelry is Jewelry made with the combination of Gold on Silver to create a multi-colored effect and a new look in American Jewelry. A Silver and Gold Ring is actually more sticking than a plain Gold Ring and other types of Jewelry items such as Silver Gold Pendants, Bracelets and even large Gold and Silver Necklace sets stand out as being unusual Jewelry from the crowd.
Durango Silver Company has been making multi-colored Silver and Gold, mixed metals, Jewelry for quite some time now, however, it is just recently that our market has increased for this type of Jewelry. As of January 2011 Silver is about $30.00 per ounce and Gold is at $1400.00 per ounce which makes the idea of Sterling Silver and Gold Jewelry attractive, visually as well as financially.
When we throw in a third color, especially Turquoise, the Gold and Silver Jewelry really stands out. A Gold and Silver Mens Rings with a high quality Turquoise Stone is extremely attractive when worn by a gentleman. I, John Hartman (founder of Durango Silver Company) prefer a Silver Ring accented with Gold as I find it very masculine and handsome for myself.
