The Precious Metal Type Lays the Foundation: 14k, 18k or Platium?
Selecting between gold and platinum may seem like a simple decision; however there are many factors that distinguish between these precious metal types. The color is usually the most obvious difference in the option between yellow and white gold. Furthermore, you can go so far as to create a hue of gold more suitable to your taste, such as rose gold or a shade with green coloration. Next, there is the distinction within the concentration of pure gold in the wedding ring, with options like the stronger 14k or softer 18k. In white gold selection, the tint between 14k and 18k remain the same, however when choosing a yellow or rose gold, the amount of pure 24k gold in the mixture for this can have an impact on the color; a higher karat shows a stronger color (more yellow or more rose colored) than a lower karat. When considering platinum, a few ideas to keep in mind include the weight of platinum. Platinum is heavier than gold because of its increased density. Also, platinum has an increased longevity due to this precious metal’s tremendous durability. Finally, platinum is hypoallergenic and is deemed the most enduring precious metal for jewelry.
Do Gemstones and Diamonds Add Dazzle and Shine?
Diamonds and gemstones can add much to a wedding band and bring out the features of the ring style you have selected. Creating a matching diamond wedding band or eternity band for your engagement ring can bring out the beauty and brilliance of your diamonds. The grouping of both rings together can truly increase the shine, offering a unique duo that no other combination can offer. Various young couples may not opt for the more expensive diamond wedding bands and some men do not feel the need to have diamonds on their wedding rings. A solution for this would be to purchase a basic gold wedding band and when an anniversary, birthday or other milestone comes along, to then upgrade.
Find a Jeweler You Trust
Find your ring size by either visiting a local jeweler or using a ring sizing kit to measure your finger. Pay attention to the width of the wedding band you are interested in as this does indeed effect the ring size (wider rings require a slightly larger ring size). Also, be sure to note the conditions under which you are being measured. In summertime heat, fingers tend to expand and swell. A person’s diet may also affect their ring size as well. For these reasons it is important to choose a time when you feel you can find the most accurate ring size to use as a representation for daily wear. We are pleased to offer a comprehensive guide to ring sizing and also present many services including free resizing on most rings. Should you have any questions on ring sizing please feel free to contact one of our extremely knowledgeable customer service representatives.
