Metal Guide

When it comes to the different types of gold available for rings and jewellery material, it can be hard to discern which is the best and most durable. That’s why we’ve created this helpful guide, answering questions such as ‘what is rose gold?’ and ‘how is gold measured?’ as well as to highlight which material best lends itself to create the strongest metal rings. Click through the guides below and discover which carat is the best choice, when choosing beautiful jewellery for a loved one or even for yourself to enjoy. We’ve created a simple guide below explaining all the important terms that you’ll need to know in order to get ready to purchase your diamond with us.
