HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR PRECIOUS METAL

RARE, DURABLE, SPECIAL

Choosing Your Precious Metal

Whether your priority is colour, durability, or a request to match your skin tone or clothing, David will advise you on the perfect precious metal that’s right for you.

Platinum

Platinum is a rare precious metal that’s durable and heavy in weight. It won’t wear away with constant use and holds gemstones in place for the lifetime of the Jewellery. With a natural white lustre, platinum brings the best out of diamonds. It’s equally elegant when used to create a piece of Jewellery by itself. Pure platinum contains at least 950 parts of platinum per thousand.

Gold

Yellow gold 24ct gold is pure gold, but pure gold is too soft to be used for Jewellery, so other metals are nearly always added to strengthen it. 18ct gold is an alloy that contains 18 parts gold and six parts of other metals (usually copper), making it 75% gold. White gold is created by mixing other metals with gold to create a white or grey colour.
It’s then coated with rhodium to keep its freshness. One option is to add nickel, but this can cause dermatitis in people who are sensitive to nickel. The other option is to add palladium, which is more expensive but less likely to cause an allergic reaction. The addition of copper creates gold-coloured alloys. Rose and pink gold are created by adding extra copper – the more copper, the more profound the effect.

Palladium

Facts about Palladium: Palladium is a silvery-white colour and weighs less than platinum. It is a rare and lustrous precious metal, one of the platinum group metals typically found together in ore deposits. Palladium is naturally white from the earth and will never change colour. The wealthiest known palladium deposit in the world is located in Southern Montana in the US.

Silver

Pure silver is too soft to create durable Jewellery, so approximately 7.5% of it is made from other metals to improve performance. The most common mineral added is copper; this makes the silver more rigid and gives it a tendency to tarnish.
If you wear sterling silver jewellery continually, it often develops a lovely patina – a kind of glow combined with darkened areas. Many people like this look. If, however, you prefer your sterling silver to be bright and shiny, you can restore its original appearance by polishing it with a cloth. Sterling silver is beautiful and affordable, putting sterling silver Jewellery within the range of almost any budget.
