Precious Metal Guide
Platinum is the most expensive of the precious metals, due to lustrous silvery white appearance, heavy texture and superior durability. PT950 Ruthenium we use is the most durable among all platinum alloys. It is also super hypoallergenic and great for people with nickel or other metal allergies.
18K gold is a mixture of 75% gold and 25% of other metals added to strengthen the metal, making it suitable for everyday wear. Due to its high content of pure gold, 18K gold is more expensive than 9K, 10K and 14K gold. We offer 18K gold in yellow, rose and white finish. 18K yellow gold has a rich, warm yellow color. 18K rose gold has a lustrous pinky rose tone. 18K white gold has a similar silvery white color to platinum. We generally do not suggest people with a nickel allergy to choose white gold.
14K gold is a mixture of 58.5% gold and 41.5% of other metals. We offer 14K gold in yellow, rose and white finish. 14K and 18K have very similar appearance in color that is usually hard to differentiate. In addition to that, 14K is way more affordable than 18K. Therefore, 14K is one of the most popular choices when it comes to engagement rings or wedding bands. We generally do not suggest people with a nickel allergy to choose white gold.
10K gold is mixture of 41.7% gold and 58.3% of other metals. We offer 10K gold in yellow, rose and white finish. 10K yellow gold has a pale-yellow color compared to 14K yellow gold. We generally do not suggest people with a nickel allergy to choose white gold.
9K gold is an alloy metal containing 37.5% gold and 62.5% of other metals. Pure gold is soft and as low purity gold alloy, 9K is way harder and super durable for everyday wear. We offer 9K gold pieces in yellow and rose finish. 9K yellow gold will be soft and light-yellow color.
Sterling silver is an alloy metal containing 92.5% silver and 7.5% of other metals, usually copper. The copper makes the silver more durable but on the other hand, it will cause it to tarnish over time, especially in a humid environment. However, they can be easily cleaned with jewelry polish cloths. The silvery white color of sterling silver makes it a great affordable alternative to white gold jewelry.
