Chocolate Gold Jewelry

chocolate gold jewelryThere's a new craze slowly building out there for chocolate gold. And, no, it does not mean those gold coins kids will be eating tomorrow. Apparently there is a special process called PVD (for physical vaporization and deposition), during which rose gold is bombarded electronically, which makes the metal change color to a molten brown. At first I was like, ew brown isn't pretty, but seeing the pieces changed my mind and now I want! I especially like the contrast between the dark brown and the icy diamonds. of course the pieces above are from de Grisogono's "Browny Borwn Gold" collection, and cost a minimum of $10,000... so I went in search for cheaper alternatives. There's the Cocoa Collection by Licia Mattioli, where pieces range from $1,000 and up, but that's still (possibly) out of my price range.
Then I found Chocolate Gold at QVC. Most pieces are under $100 and, while not as extravagant, definitely cute! But the site says the pieces are "14K yellow gold with chocolate brown plating" is the brown plating gold or something else? Stop confusing me, QVC!

Brown or chocolate gold is made by a process called PVD or Pressure Vapor Deposition. This technic has been used on watches for a long time but is only now being used on gold.

I just love chocolates and these chocolate gold jewelries are refreshingly yummy and gorgeously charming! i have not purchased one of these yet but i am planning to do so as soon as i have come across one that looks delightfully yummy to wear. i know the trend has emerged last year but i'm wondering why it didn't become so popular. i hope it is not just a fad...
