We make use of natural Diamonds, Gemstones and Gold. Calibrated and Certified diamonds to bring you arguably the finest quality jewellery in the world. Unlike retailers, nothing is hollowed out, Gold is never skimped on. Quality is everything.
Gold is a chemical element with symbol Au and atomic number 79 in its purest form. It is a bright, slightly reddish yellow, soft, malleable and ductile metal.
Pure 24K(100%) gold is too soft to manufacture jewellery for everyday wear, and is mixed with other metal alloys like silver, copper, nickel and zinc to make it stronger and more durable for jewellery.
The karat indicates the amount of pure gold in the metal. The higher the karat, the higher the percentage of pure gold.
As 24k(100%) gold is pure but too soft to use, it is mixed with other metals to strengthen it. 18k is 75% pure. 9K is an affordable alternative although visually identical.
Why is 18k gold more valuable than 9k gold?
18k gold contains a higher (75.0%) percentage of pure gold than 9k gold (37.5%).
Gold is sold by weight - grams(gr), the heavier the piece, the higher the gold content, therefore it is more expensive.
Natural gold and color-saturated alloys are what give yellow gold jewelry its rich shine. The alloys most commonly used, are copper with a red hue, and silver featuring a green hue. An expert mixture of copper, silver and pure gold gives this precious metal its yellow finish.
A white character is what makes white gold jewelry so appealing. In order to make the gold white, it is combined with metal alloys that are white in nature and plated with an extremely hard element called rhodium. Although strong, rhodium may wear away over time. Re-plating is a simple process that can be done to restore whiteness to your jewelry.
The beautiful pink hue of rose gold jewelry 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, there is just a different mixture in what alloys are used.
You will notice some retail stores have what appears to be very low gold prices, the ring might have a very heavy look to it with alot of detail from surface glance but when you look at the inside of the ring you notice it's hollowed out. This is to reduce the weight of a jewelry piece. Pure Jewellery does not hollow out rings, everything is solid. We do this to ensure each piece will last many lifetimes. Solid, quality gold pieces is what we do, our gram weight will always be higher.
