Products and Materials

Which metal is best?

Our ring collection as well as the majority of our fine jewellery comes in platinum, white gold or yellow gold. Platinum is more durable and shows fewer scratches and has a bright, modern look as does white gold. Yellow gold has a warmer hue and chic appeal.

What is the difference between white gold and platinum?

A common misconception is that white gold and platinum are the same things and only separated by price but this is not the case. Platinum is four times stronger than white gold, does not discolour or oxidise as white gold does and is more durable. In terms of appearance, platinum has a very white and slightly duller appearance than white gold, which shines brighter. 18 karat white gold is a very good option for a customer who is looking for a purer metal at a reasonable price.

What is rhodium?

Rhodium is a metal alloy that is formed when platinum is separated and is applied to fine jewellery to create an incredibly hard protective coating on silver and gold. Rhodium also provides a white shiner and tarnish prevention.
