The History of Gold

Gold has been worn for centuries and was a firm favourite in many Ancient Civilizations. Gold has a very long and interesting history as a valuable much-loved metal, that it still boasts of today.

Historians are unsure as to when humans love for gold first started, and this fascination is as old as recorded history. Flakes of gold have been found in Palaeolithic caves, which date back as far as 40,000 B.C.

Ancient Egypt and Gold

Gold can be found all over the world and due to this, can be linked to many different Ancient Civilizations. The Ancient Egyptians are one of the earliest evident human interactions with the precious metal and the use of gold is important in understanding the historical context of Ancient Egypt.

Gold occurred in Ancient Egypt around 3,000 B.C. and played a very important role in mythology and was much loved by pharaohs and temple priests alike.

When was gold first worn as jewellery?

Due to the fact that gold does not corrode, it became a symbol of immortality and power in many ancient cultures. So, when did people actually start wearing gold as jewellery? Many ancient cultures wore different kinds of jewellery, such as beads and shells, but the Ancient Egyptians are likely the first humans to wear jewellery made with gold alloy.

Later, in 3,000 B.C.E. the Sumer civilisation in Mesopotamia, which in modern days is made up roughly of Iraq, Kuwait, parts of Syria and parts of Turkey, also used gold in jewellery manufacture. This was followed by the Minoan civilisation on Crete also using gold in jewellery and being considered as the first people to produce cable chain jewellery made from gold.

Facts about Gold

Gold is the only metal that is yellow in colour. Other metals may go yellow when reacting with chemicals, but gold is the only metal that is ‘gold’ in colour.

Nearly all gold on Earth came from meteorites that struck the planet over 200 million years after Earth was first formed.

The element symbol of gold ‘Au’, comes from its old Latin name Aurum. This means ‘shining dawn’ or ‘glow of sunrise’, which we think is very fitting!

Gold is a noble metal, which means is resists chemical action, does not corrode and is not easily attacked by acids – making it perfect to wear as jewellery.

Gold is extremely versatile and has many uses; currency, jewellery, electronics, electrical wiring, dentistry, medicine, radiation and colouring. (Source: Thought Co.)

Pros to Gold Plated Jewellery

Gold-plated jewellery is much more affordable, meaning you can stay up to date with trends without breaking the bank. Jewellery that is gold-plated looks like real gold to the untrained eye, so nobody will be any the wiser that you aren’t wearing the real deal.

Gold-plated jewellery is shiny and is great for decorations or indeed accessorising your favourite outfits. Due to gold-plated jewellery being quite easy to make, it makes it perfect for staying up-to-date with trends and fashions. As it is affordable, it’s great for staying on-trend without worrying about making a huge investment that may no longer be fashionable in a few months’ time.

Interestingly, gold-plated items are stronger than solid gold items and they will last longer. Gold is a very soft metal which means it is much better to wear jewellery that is gold alloy or gold-plated to create a strong and durable item to wear.
