When we think of gold, probably the first thing that comes to mind is jewelry. Gold bangle bracelets, gold cross pendants, add a link bracelets, gold and diamond earrings… no matter the style, Houston jewelry connoisseurs know where to find the best jewelry Houston has to offer.
But did you know that over a fifth of all the gold taken from mines across the globe is not used in jewelry? Some is used in electronics, some is traded in financial transactions, some goes into teeth, and some is used for even more specialized purposes, such as the thin transparent gold film that covers a the visor of an astronaut!
However, when it comes to gold jewelry stores in Houston TX, just like in most cities across the country, still have the lions share. Especially when it comes to that most traditional piece of gold jewelry, the wedding ring. Be sure to check the band for the karat number, which will tell you how much of the gold is pure (for example, fourteen parts gold mixed with ten parts another metal will result in 14K gold).
Gold bands have always been cherished treasures. In fact, Roman brides in the 2nd Century B.C. would often be given a gold band and an iron band, one to wear in public and one to wear during household chores, respectively. Ask your Houston jewelry specialist if the same gold band comes in iron, and see if they know what you mean!
