Wedding Rings

Wedding rings can be made from a variety or combination of metal alloys;

SILVER - Usually used in the “Sterling standard form - which is 92.5% pure silver alongside the addition of copper and other metals in order to improve mechanical properties. The “Britannia” standard is rarely used as the small increase in purity (95.8%) results in the silver becoming too soft to be practical.

GOLD - Used as many alloys. 9 carat gold 9 parts gold out of 24, or 37.5% pure gold in a given alloy - meaning pure gold is 24 carats.

Rings are available in several weights and widths in 9ct, 18ct,, white, yellow, and red gold. We also offer Silver, Platinum, and Palladium rings in any size. Palladium is one of the Platinum group of metals which also includes Rhodium, Osmium, Iridium, and Ruthenium.
