Marisol Mac. Ring. August 09th , 2017.
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.
Jewelers sometimes carry vintage pieces. A good jeweler will be knowledgeable about the value of the ring. You may not get as good a deal, but will have the peace of mind of knowing that you have a quality ring. You will be given a certificate for the diamond when you buy from a jeweler.
It is also traditional to give someone a promise ring with small stones. Birthstones are very popular choices, but you can also leave this decision up to your imagination. Rubies can represent the red fire love that you feel towards your partner. Sapphires can symbolize that you always will be true blue towards your mate. Emeralds can correspond with how your special someone makes you feel rich and prosperous, despite the fact that you may not be rich by some people's standards.
Among the Anglo-Normans, the ring was always worn on the middle finger of the right hand, while in the latter part of the seventeenth century the wedding-ring was often worn on the thumb. The Quakers reject the ring as a remnant of Pagan superstition, and in the time of the Commonwealth the Puritans endeavored to abolish it for the same reason.
