Synonymous with luxury, gold has different levels of purity that reflect the gold content within the metal. 24 carat gold is the highest purity, but is so soft that it will easily lose its shape, which is why most rings are made from 9, 12 or 18 carat gold. Each purity is available in iconic yellow, white or rose colours.
Yellow Gold sets off diamonds that have a hint of colour (G, H or I+).
White Gold has a shiny, reflective finish that enhances the brilliance of diamonds and is an excellent alternative to platinum. To keep white gold at its best, it’s recommended that it is rhodium plated every 18 months.
Rose Gold has grown in popularity and provides a less usual choice to the more traditional yellow and white colours. Its warm hue means that it complements a multitude of skin tones and can offset the sparkle of different coloured gemstones.
