Platinum is often associated with prestige. It is one of the rarest elements in the earths crust. Being almost completely non-reactive and as high as 95% pure, Platinum is considered to be hypoallergenic. Its extreme resistance to corrosion has given it a reputation of being indestructible. Strong, pure, and rare, platinum is an excellent choice of metal for a ring that is meant to withstand the test of time.
We have often compared our most precious belongings to the preciouness of Gold. Available in purities as high as 24 karat, pure gold, and as low as 9 karat, 37.5% pure, in some European countries. Depending on the mixture of metals, gold is available in a range of colours. In red gold, or traditional gold, the higher the gold content, or higher the Karat weight, the brighter and richer the gold appears. When mixed with copper, we achieve a beautiful pink, often refered to as Rose gold. White gold is achieved by mixing light coloured metals. The finished product has a slight yellow hue, so it is finished with a Rhodium plating. Rhodium is part of the Platinum family. It gives white gold a bright white shine and strengthens the surface.
Titanium is one of the strongest metals used in jewellery. It is incredibly lightweight with three times the strength of steel. Its durability and lightness makes titanium an easy choice for many men.
This amazingly strong metal has a density that is greater than steel and titanium. This property makes Tungsten one of the heaviest metals used to make jewellery. Its high density also allows it to keep its high polish finish longer than many other metal, as it scratches very seldom.
Cobalt, like Platinum, is a pure metal and is considered hypoallergenic. It's high density allows it to retain it's finish and bright white luster. Cobalt is non-reactive, so will never change colour or tarnish.
