Frederick Holm writes for the F&L Designer Guides, which hosts a thriving community of independent engagement ring designers in the UK. Inspired by their journey of discovery in search of distinctive, one-of-a-kind white gold engagement rings, F&L now celebrates the works of their favourite designers and helps promote the notion of Go Bespoke as a more imaginative and interesting alternative to the limitations of High Street shopping.
The most popular vintage rings are from the Victorian Era through the 1940s. Distinct styles, settings and stones can be seen in rings from each period. Victorian rings are generally yellow or rose colored gold. The stone can be a diamond, but pearls were just as common in this time period. Edwardian rings have a filigree design in the rings. Some may have Jewish or Christian designs in the filigree.
Palladium was discovered by William Hyde Wollaston in 1803 and has been used as a precious metal in jewellery since 1939. As recently as 2001, palladium was more expensive than platinum and rarely used in jewellery due to the issue of casting - the technology to efficiently cast palladium as jewellery did not exist then. Palladium is extremely difficult to cast well because it is a veritable oxygen sponge when molten; it therefore requires a very controlled melting environment. However, the casting problem has been solved and its use in jewellery has increased because of a large increase in the price of platinum and a drop in the price of palladium.
* Cut and carat size - in other words, the weight and the cut of the ruby will also have a big bearing on price.
