Much like real gold, Nu-gold has a rich, luxurious warm color that only enhances the design element. When polished, the red hue can become even more noticeable. Over time, the color of Nu-gold can darken, resulting in a beautiful blend of colors, often referred to as “Chameleon Metal”. Along with the darker gold color, Nu-gold also features splashes of forest green and raspberry pink tones.
Nu-gold can be texturized or stamped to take on a variety of designs or patterns. Its surface can be hammered to create texture that creates a brilliant shine. This bold design element can be worn by men and women. Hand-chased texture is also a popular design, which when polished to a mirror finish, makes for a bold piece of jewelry. Experiment with a variety of designs, including nature-inspired textures, such as bark.
