BLACK GOLD RINGS
Discover our black gold rings for an original and elegant style
When choosing a jewel, the color of the metal is a major element to take into consideration. White gold, rose gold and yellow gold are generally the three most common colors. However, in recent years, rings with a more original design have emerged, in particular rings in black gold, a metal that is still discreet in jewelry. Because love is priceless, discover our black gold rings, original and elegant creations.
Black gold rings: high jewelry trend
Metal still little democratized in the world of jewelry, black gold is mainly used in more original and fanciful creations such as those found in high jewelry. Indeed, in fine jewelry, it is easier to afford creative madness. For both men and women, this black gold jewel will enhance your hand.
Out of the ordinary, black gold brings a more rock and daring side to creations. This is the case with our Black Magic collection, which plays on the textures and volumes of blacks. This collection is inspired by artists like Soulages or Hartung and reveals the electric side of stones by playing on their textures and volumes.
In Paris, Lorenz Bäumer likes to shake up the traditional codes of jewelry by offering creations for women or men with black gold metal, quality rhodium.
black gold jewelry
Black gold jewels are still quite rare creations but are gradually becoming more democratic. Original, these daring jewels push back the traditional limits of jewelery and give a rock and assertive style.
Like black diamonds, these jewels are often more appreciated by men for the dark side of these creations. However, black gold jewellery, especially rings, should not be worn daily because they can be difficult to match. But also, because their rhodium plating can easily fade.
The price of black gold jewelry is not higher than that of white gold or rose gold jewelry. Thus, a black gold ring is an ideal creation for yourself or as a gift.
The technique of blackening gold
Finally little known in the world of jewelry, black gold is, like white gold, a rhodium gold. Rhodium plating consists of covering the gold with a thin layer of metal to give it its black color.
During the process, the metal is transformed with the addition of silver and copper to create a gray gold base. As a result of this metal base obtained, the technique of rhodium plating is used to give the gold a black color. This process consists of depositing a thin layer of black rhodium on the previously polished alloy, using a liquid metal bath.
Our collection of blackened gold jewelry
Maison Bäumer offers many creations in black gold, a noble metal that is still rare and not widely used in jewelry. The main black gold jewels are fine jewelery creations: Black Magic, Métamorphose Velvet, A la folie Velvet, Good Girl – Bad Girl, etc.
Lorenz Bäumer excels in the art of pushing back the traditional codes of jewelry by offering new techniques and creations (olfactory matter, meteorite, etc.). Thus, he enjoys revisiting his essential collections by offering a "dark" version of the flowery and colorful creations A la Folie or Métamorphose. He also likes to create Beauty in a rock, feminine and daring collection: Good Girl – Bad Girl.
Black gold is generally a very popular metal worn by men, but our House invites you to discover dark and feminine creations. Rings, earrings, necklaces, bracelets and other jewels are reinterpreted in darker but equally joyful colors, for an even more exceptional effect.
You can also create a ring, an alliance or another jewel of your dreams by imagining it to measure. Made-to-measure makes it possible to create a unique and quality jewel, which you will not find anywhere else and according to your desires. For example, for your wedding, you can dare to shake up the traditional engagement ring in white gold set with a diamond by making it become a black gold ring set with a white diamond or another stone. Likewise for your wedding rings, or for any other creation, make them according to your desires with quality materials.
In Paris, in our boutique at 19 Place Vendôme, make the black gold wedding band or ring of your desires alongside Lorenz Bäumer. Marriage and engagement are celebrations dear to our House. Whether you are a woman or a man, tell a story with a diamond, a sapphire or a stone chosen beforehand, of the size and number of carats you want, to create the jewel that is your love and eternal union.
The different finishes of blackened gold jewelry
Black gold jewelry is jewelry with character that goes easily with a dressy outfit. Within our collections, fantasies invite themselves into our creations: precious stones (sapphire, ruby, emerald or diamond), but tanzanites, tourmalines, peridots, spinels and other stones are found in these audacious creations.
Black gold makes it possible to bring out with brilliance the precious and fine stones set on the creations. Finally, the pavings of white diamonds bring a touch of brilliance to the jewels and are placed with delicacy on the creations.
Black gold goes perfectly well with diamonds but also with stones of a strong and intense color. Blue and green stones will be enhanced with black gold. On the other hand, the stones of red and pink color are to be avoided.
In Paris, with the use of revolutionary technologies in the workshop, we are able to reveal to you the alliance, the ring or the jewelery of your dreams for your wedding or for any other occasion.
Black gold: maintenance advice
As explained previously, black gold is gold with a thin layer of rhodium plating. Just like white gold, it is a metal of character which requires special maintenance if you want to find the jewel in its original state.
The rhodium plating on the surface of your ring or wedding bands may deteriorate over time. This is why it may sometimes be necessary to go to a store or a jewelery professional to carry out an in-depth maintenance of your metal and the stones that are set.
Concerning the maintenance, we advise you, as for the other jewels (rings, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, pendants) in pink gold, white gold, platinum or black gold, to clean them in lukewarm water with soap or dishwashing liquid. Remember to dry them well but also to clean the stones with a small cloth specially designed for this purpose.
Like most metals with rhodium plating, black gold is a metal that acquires a patina over time. Indeed, due to friction, shocks and events of daily life, the layer of rhodium on black gold may fade. This phenomenon of wear is completely normal. Thus, pay particular attention to your black gold rings by avoiding wearing them daily, which will make them last over time.
The stones, just like the surface of your ring, must be cleaned sparingly so that your jewel returns to its original state.
