Choosing your jewelry material
Strong & shiny platinum or going for gold
All the metals we provide are high quality noble metals. This will reduce the risk on allergies.
Platinum is our most popular metal for engagement and wedding rings. Platinum's naturally white sheen will never fade or change colour, and will be accentuating the sparkle and brilliance of a diamond. Platinum will last forever, making it the ultimate symbol for true, enduring, and everlasting love.

DENSITY AND DURABILITY
Platinum is durable. Its density makes it the most secure setting for your diamond or precious gemstone. All our platinum rings are crafted with platinum prongs for setting loose diamonds. Because platinum is a naturally white metal, re-plating is unnecessary; it will always hold its beauty.
Though it is the strongest of jewelry metals, platinum can incure a scratch and develop a patina of wear. The patina is considered by many to be a unique and often desirable attribute. However, the pre-patina sheen and reflective lustre can easily be revived by merely buffing it with a soft cloth.
PURITY OF PLATINUM
Platinum jewellery is very rare; in fact, 30 times more so than gold. Our platinum is 95% pure (5% iridium, palladium, ruthenium, and other alloys), and its purity makes it naturally hypoallergenic, ideal for those with sensitive skin issues.
HOW TO MAINTAIN PLATINUM'S METAL LUSTRE
It's easy. Simply soak platinum in a mild solution of warm soapy water, and then gently scrub it with a soft-bristled brush.
Gold has an extraordinary heritage with unique qualities. As an enduring element found naturally in a distinct yellow colour, gold is resistant to rust, tarnish, and corrosion. Although gold is very strong, it's also the most malleable of all precious metals.

COLOURS OF GOLD
Natural gold and colour-saturated alloys are what give yellow gold jewellery its rich shine. An expert mixture of copper, silver and pure gold gives this precious metal its signature warmth.
A silvery white character is what makes white gold jewellery so appealing. It’s plated with an extremely hard element called rhodium. Although strong, rhodium may wear away over time. Replating is a simple process that can be done to restore whiteness to your jewellery.
The beautiful pink hue of rose gold jewellery is created by using a copper alloy. Again, the overall percentages of metal alloys is the same for rose gold as it is for yellow or white.
Since gold is a natural element, it is affected by harsh chemicals such as chlorine or other cleaning products. To clean gold jewellery, use a solution of warm water and detergent-free soap with a soft-bristled brush. When not worn, store your gold pieces in soft cloth bags or the original box to protect them from the elements of daily exposure.
