Remember: nothing shines like Duragold.
The purity of gold is measured in karats. Pure gold measures 24 karats but is too soft in this state to be used effectively in jewelry. So it is alloyed with other metals--silver, copper, nickel, and zinc--to increase its strength and durability. Common measurements once the alloy is added are 18 karat (75% gold), 14 karat (58%), and 10 karat (47.7%). In the United States, the legal karat limit for the metal to still be considered gold is 10 karats. A higher karat measurement in gold content indicates a greater value of the jewelry piece. Gold jewelry should always be stamped with the karat mark, either 18k, 750 (European marking for 18k), 14k, 585 (European marking for 14k), or 10k. In addition, to assure its quality, the piece should be stamped with the manufacturer's trademark or country of origin.
The color of gold may vary based off of the type of metal alloy included and the percentage of the metal alloy used. Most commonly, gold is available in yellow, white, and rose coloring.
Yellow gold is the most common color and is usually alloyed with silver and copper. Yellow and white gold are similar in strength and malleability, making them perfect for jewelry that is worn daily.
White gold is alloyed with nickel, copper, and zinc--and while it looks similar to platinum, it has vastly different properties.
Rose-colored gold is alloyed with copper and is often used to accent white or yellow gold. The saturation of color varies from piece to piece and according to gold content.
Caring For Your Gold Jewelry
To keep gold shining and scratch-free, avoid contact with chlorine and other harsh chemicals. Do not wear jewelry during rough work and be sure to store it in a fabric-lined jewelry box or pouch. To clean gold jewelry, use warm water, a mild soap, and a soft bristled brush, if needed.

I like the feel of these earrings; they aren't too heavy to be comfortable to wear, but they are substantial. They present a nice profile from the front.
I've worn them a few times a week for three or four months now, with no problems at all. The fasteners seem to be a little hard to snap shut, but I like that because it means they are not likely to come unfastened accidentally. And they haven't come undone by accident, unlike other hoops with similar closures, which have sometimes been slipped open by contact with a scarf or coat collar.
UPDATED on June 30, 2012: These earrings are still one of my go-to wardrobe mainstays. I wear them at least three days a week, and they are usually the only earrings I take when traveling. I have no idea if the quality of the earrings being sold now, is different from this pair that I bought two and a half years ago. However, my earrings (the 14k yellow and white gold version) are still going strong. The wire fasteners are still working well and the finish is clear and bright. I haven't abused these earrings but I haven't babied them, either. The price of precious metals has gone up since late 2009 when I bought these, and my budget's rather tight right now. If not for those two facts I'd be buying the all-yellow-gold version of these earrings in a heartbeat. For now, they are on my wish list.
The design of joined twin gold hoops, one white and one yellow, means that you can mix and match your watch band and bracelets and still look put-together. They're a natural choice to accompany any two-tone jewelry you may have. You also can play around with having the white gold closest to your face or the yellow gold closest, which can be useful if you are trying to coordinate with a necklace.
I like the security and ease of a snap closure; there's no worry about a backing going missing and having to find a replacement. In fact, for earrings above a certain value, having a snap closure is almost a "must" for me.
These are comfortable to wear, and I've received compliments on them. The only drawback is remembering to be careful about the amount of pressure you use in snapping the earrings closed; I do wish that the vertical receptacle were a bit thicker, and for that reason, I'm subtracting a star (wish we could rate in half-star increments).
They're not too big; you can gauge the size in the photo by the ear clasp--most earrings have the same size ear clasp. (1" tall x 3/4" wide x 1/2" thick) I think they're absolutely perfect for the office and carry over very well for a special night out. I've had them polished a few times, but that's because I wear them all the time! The best thing is that they're not heavy at all. They're hollow, but they're substantial.
I read a comment from one reviewer stating that his wife's earrings broke apart. Honestly, they're welded in three places; I don't see it happening without some manhandling. I'm looking at mine now, and while they're dinged up a bit, I don't mind at all. They've been worn a lot during the past 5 years...even in Africa, Yemen, and the Middle East where I served as a Marine! (Yes, we do get to wear civilian attire occasionally depending on our duties.) Again, I love them and so will you!
