Clarissa Bancroft. Ring. September 21st , 2017.
There are several good places to find antique rings. Antique stores often carry jewelry. Some dealers are more knowledgeable than others about the details and value of rings from each period. In some cases, you ca get a really good deal. Some stores under sell jewelry because they don't know its true value. The ring may not come with a certificate. If not, have it independently appraised for insurance.
An 18K gold mens wedding ring is .75% pure gold, while a 14K gold mens wedding ring is .585% percent pure gold. Metal alloy makes up the balance. Here's what you need to know. Whether a 14K or 18K yellow gold mens wedding band is best for you depends upon personal preferences.
Fine Palladium jewellery is already available in stores, with renowned stockists such as The Wedding Ring Specialist seeking only the purest, most natural and whitest palladium for their wedding rings. According to reports, around 5,000 articles were hallmarked by the four UK offices in Birmingham, Edinburgh, London and Sheffield in the first nine days after a change in the law created the palladium hallmark. This is in sharp contrast to the introduction of hallmarking of platinum in 1975 where for the first nine years less than 100 units were handled each year.
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.
