Your wedding ring is a symbol of your love and commitment and a timeless reminder of a unique bond. All of our rings are tailored to you, making every piece individual and stunningly unique, exactly how they should be.
The following information has been designed to help you make the perfect choice.
D shape high profile
24 Carat Pure, rich, 100% gold.
22 Carat High quality with a wonderful colour, 22 carat contains 91.7% gold. Alloyed with silver and copper.
18 Carat 75.0% gold, alloyed with silver and copper.
14 Carat Containing 58.3% gold, 14 carat is an improvement on 9 carat, however it can still tarnish and become brittle. Alloyed with silver, copper and zinc.
9 Carat Containing 37.5% gold, 9 carat consists of more base metal than gold. Like copper it tarnishes and may turn green or black, having the same effect on your skin or clothes. 9 carat is alloyed with silver, copper and zinc.
Gold is a yellow metallic element, but in its pure form it is too soft to be used for general jewellery purposes. Therefore, most gold jewellery needs to be alloyed with other metals to provide the best combination of strength, appearance, and resistance to tarnishing.
White Gold Alloys with Palladium
Palladium is ideal as a constituent of "white gold" alloys, a rare silver white transition metal and close relative of platinum.
Rhodium is an extremely bright and highly reflective element. It is common practise to rhodium plate all white gold jewellery, and some platinum.
When the rhodium plating wears through, the colour of the actual "white" alloy can be seen. This varies from grey, through to distinctly yellowish grey.
On some low cost jewellery, yellow gold alloys are rhodium plated. When the plating wears out, the natural yellow colour of the alloy appears.
Mixed with other precious metals, titanium creates stunning designs, textures and colours. This highly durable metal also boasts the following:
- As strong as steel, but much lighter
- Twice as strong as aluminium
- Hypoallergenic qualities - used in hip joint replacements
- Found in the meteorites, the sun, the stars, the moon, earth's crust and even human bodies
- Used to produce alloys for aerospace, marine craft and other industries
Platinum is a wonderful and popular choice of metal for wedding rings. If you prefer white coloured rings, then platinum is the perfect choice for you.
Platinum is naturally "white" (silvery grey), and is extremely strong and hard-wearing. In addition, it never discolours or tarnishes and with a low "spring-back" rate makes it ideal for stone settings.
Platinum wedding rings are made from a solid piece of 950 platinum, without any joins. They are stamped out of a solid sheet of metal and hammered into a "blank" wedding ring shape.
Several processes then follow, the rings are polished, diamond cut, hammered, hand engraved, or sandblasted, creating unique and stunning designs.
Thanks to sophisticated new alloying methods we are pleased to offer palladium as a new stand-alone metal for all our rings.
This rare transition metal is a close relative of platinum and naturally white in colour. It does not need to be Rhodium plated and there are no difficulties with sizing or diamond setting, making it an increasingly popular choice.
One of the most crucial aspects of buying any wedding ring is ensuring it fits correctly. Stating the obvious? On average people in the UK wear their rings two sizes too large, so perhaps not.
Matt or Polished
All of our wedding rings are available with a matt or polished finish. Inevitably, with age comes wear and tear. Wedding rings with a matt finish will become shinier with wear, whilst small scratches will appear on a polished finish.
We guarantee that our diamonds are "conflict-free". Any diamond we purchase is from a legitimate source in compliance with United Nations resolutions. These sources are in no way involved in funding conflict and are in keeping with the Kimberley process. For further information please see link below.
