How to Choose The Metal

COLOURED DIAMOND EDUCATION

Different metals have different colours, looks, durability, strength, and prices.

Gold: Gold has always been a classic and a timeless choice for a wedding band. The natural warm look and beautiful luster makes the gold wedding ring a romantic and desired metal. Gold is measured in karats and has 24 parts. Pure gold is measured as 24ct gold and it is too soft to use for producing jewellery so it needs to be mixed with other metals to form a ring. 18 karat gold contains 75 % pure gold, 14 karat gold contains 58.5% pure gold and 9 karat gold contains 37.5% pure gold. The hardness and durability of gold varies depending on the karat, so according to your preference, you can choose the karat that you desire.

How to Choose The Profile

Comfort fit

Flat Band Comfort Fit

Comfort fit: This profile makes the inside of the band slightly domed with extra metal. It provides an easy squeeze over the large knuckle when putting it on or taking it off. The rounded interior (where the ring touches the finger) helps the ring slide. If you have an active lifestyle and take your wedding band off very often, a comfort width wedding band is your ideal choice. Comfort wedding bands become thicker from center of the band’s interior to its outer edges and cover less skin surface area.

Flat Band Comfort Fit: This profile’s inner surface has a curved and domed shape, but the outer surface has a flat shape. The convex curve helps to wear the ring easily, so the ring perfectly slides when you wear or take it off. It provides for easy removal but at the same time has a flat outer surface so these two shapes gather in one design and create a unique and different look.
