All gold used for jewellery is made up of alloys. Eighteen karat yellow gold is alloyed with copper and zinc in proportions of 75% gold and 25% other metals; this is the same for producing and classifying the karat of white gold. White gold is an alloy composed of yellow gold and a white metal, such as silver, manganese, palladium or platinum and is a very popular choice for white gold engagement rings. Nickel was formerly used in Europe, but there are strict restrictions on its use because it can create an allergic skin rash. It is generally not used as an alloy unless you buy from an American source, where it is still utilised. The alloys will add strength and durability and, depending on which metals are used and in what proportions, will affect the final colour of the white gold.
Diamond is the hardest natural material. That is quite a title: diamonds score a 10 on the Mohs hardness scale, a scale that ranges from 1, which is the softest and includes materials like talc, all the way to a 10. It is the molecular structure of diamonds that makes them so hard, with the carbon atoms arranged in a strong, tetrahedral structure, making diamond the least compressible and stiffest substance. In fact, diamonds can only be scratched or damaged by other diamonds; it this natural hardness which makes diamond ideal for polishing tools and industrial cutting, such as military materials like airplane components and armour. So, at least, if you decide to buy a diamond engagement ring, you wont have to worry about it getting scratched. However, although diamond is very hard, it is relatively brittle. As a result it splits along its crystal cleavage planes when receiving a certain impact.
