9K Gold - (370) 37.5% gold by mass. It's very strong and durable. Is also more affordable because of the lower gold ratio. White gold is mixed with Palladium giving it the white colour (rhodium plated). Rose gold is mixed with copper to achieve the rosy pinkish colour. If you have sensitive skin, we do not recommend 9K rose gold because of the higher % of copper.
14K Gold - (585) 58,5% gold by mass. We only use 14K yellow gold.
18K Gold - (750) 75% gold by mass. More of a warmer color in yellow and rose gold because of the high percentage of gold.
Platinum - (PLT) 95% platinum, mixed with 5% palladium. The strongest and purest of the metals. Very durable and keeps it's white colour with only minimal care. All platinum pieces are also rhodium plated.
* White gold might need more care over time, depending on the wearer. Over time, the protective rhodium layer will eventually wear off, leaving a slight yellowish tint to. This is common for white gold and just needs to be re-plated and polished to restore the whiteness. Rhodium plating is also nickel free.
As beautiful all the gemstones are, they also have different characteristics and should be considered when buying a piece of jewellery. Some gemstones are more ''softer'' than others and therefore can scratch more easily or break when hit strong. You wouldn't want that to happen. See the Mohs Gemstone Hardness scale to make sure your gemstone hardness is suitable for an everyday wear. For engagement rings we recommend gemstones between 7/7.5-10.
