Niessing Colors

The most beautiful colors of gold

Shades as never seen before

The soul of gold has many colors: gold that is soft and warm like a sandy beach, or fresh and clear like a summer morning at the lake; gold that glows like the sun in that special moment just before it goes down. Gold that is so beautiful that it seems to blush. Pure gold, in rich yellow.

If gold looks so much like fresh hay on a sunny meadow, perhaps you can even smell it? Our designers and goldsmiths are sure you can—and they should know! For they managed to draw a color spectrum from precious gold that is truly unique. Niessing made the color wheel of gold come full circle.

Niessing Silver Colors

The most beautiful colors of silver


Silver has been used in jewelry making since the 5th millennium BC. Now, the Niessing designers and gold-smiths created a totally new silver for a whole new generation—a dream come true.

Niessing Silver is a world‘s first in alloys, a specifically developed, wholly new, colored silver. Different colored metals and a final touch of gold result in three new shades of silver that permeate the entire material, through and through. Niessing Silver is harder than regular silver and not as brittle, so it can be forged and formed like gold or platinum. Niessing Silver is more tarnish-proof than common silver alloys.

Niessing Silver Colors are fun and expression. Join in, play your personality. What‘s your favorite? Do you go for one color—or would your rather mix all three? Follow your feelings!

Gold alloys

A high art in itself

Experience and passion

When our best designers and gold alloy experts lock themselves up in the smelting workshop, we know that something special is about to emerge. Teamwork is prerequisite. The members have to understand each other implicitly; they need patience and a good deal of know-how. What is so difficult about this work? Gold, of course, is the main component of the alloy. The admixtures of silver, copper, or palladium determine the color. Even the smallest deviations in quantity, temperature, or in duration of the smelting process rule over success or failure. Smelting gold is an art in itself!

No matter which of the many Niessing shades of gold will become your favorite: the colors of gold go straight to the heart!

We go for quality

Perfect blend

What you can expect from us

Each piece of jewelry is engraved with the letters “Au” for “aurum”, the Latin word for gold, and with a number, which represents the mass of pure gold in relation to 1000 parts contained in an alloy. It is important for the quality of the alloy that the proportion of gold is as high as possible.

In order to ensure optimal fineness, we manufacture all of our alloys in-house. We use Au 1000 (fine gold), Au 900, Au 750, and for some wedding rings also Au 585

We use palladium rather than nickel in our gold alloys. Palladium is a silvery-white precious metal from the platinum group. It is pure, white, skin-friendly—and absolutely beautiful.

Niessing gold is sustainably mined

We purchase our gold and platinum exclusively from Allgemeine Gold- und Silberscheideanstalt AG (AGOSI) in the German jewelry city of Pforzheim. AGOSI has been granted the “Chain of Custody Certificate”, which testifies the conflict-free origin and responsible supply chain of the precious metals. You will find more details under
