Gold lends itself easily to coloration, even blue and purple, by mixing it with other metals—though only select metals create a malleable alloy useful in jewelry. Various shades of yellow gold are achieved by varying its copper and silver content, while carefully balanced additions of silver, nickel, and/or palladium yield white gold.
