Ivona Gita. Ring. September 08th , 2017.
Un-plated or natural white gold can vary in colour from a yellow tone to a light grey colour with a soft yellow undertone. When this metal is highly polished, it has a natural look, and it is often used in organic white gold engagement rings because of its soft lustre in comparison to the brilliance of rhodium plated gold. Natural white gold can be engraved with leaves and flowers to create a very unique and personal engagement ring.
The earliest diamonds were not nearly as brilliant as today's rings. The first mine cut diamonds were not very clear. This improved in the early 20th century with the European cut diamonds. These are often found in rings from the Art Deco period. Diamond cutting continued to improve and evolve into the brilliant cut that is still used today.
Palladium is a naturally occurring silvery white metal which is now enjoying a renewed interest in the jewellery industry, given the price of platinum and the current economic climate.
The Badakshan and Jagdalek regions of Afghanistan are the common sources for Afghan rubies. The Jagdalek rubies are also red in colour. Due to the recent troubles in Afghanistan, it has not been a widely available source of rubies in recent times.
