Gold belly button rings are one of the most expensive types of belly button rings. There are two types of gold belly button rings, the first one is 14K yellow gold while the second is 14K white gold. To further enhance the appearance of such belly button rings, charms and stones are also added, among the most common stones that go with gold belly button rings are amethyst, diamond, topazes or zirconium.
There are also plain gold or white gold pieces. These types do not come with stones or charms. Gold belly button rings are also attractive because it has been found that the gold material is the safest for almost all skin types. Way back then in the middle Ages, gold chains were rewarded as gifts in a traditional way to royal courts for loyal service.
A chain has many different styles and each one has its own distinct message. They can stand alone as a strong fashion statement. Gold chain has a lot to say, when it comes to men’s fashion. Some styles may give a man an impression of boldness, mystery and power. There will always be new styles and designs which will be continuously created by artisans.
If the material is gold, the karatage (percentage of gold) differs when it comes to the country of origin. In general, 14K and 18K gold chains are the most common. 18k is mostly used for fine jewelry and obviously more expensive than 14K gold. The look however is not too much different. Compared to higher karat of gold chains, 14K and 18K gold chains are not damaged easily, and you can wear them on a daily basis.
Not all that glitters is gold. Spend some time doing research before you decide to purchase a chain for yourself. Lots of them on the market are gold plated or gold layered.
