By: Alter’s Gem Jewelry
When it comes to diamond wedding bands, the diamond is the icing on the cake. However, the actual cake needs to be set on a solid foundation. This means that selecting the precious metal you want for your diamond wedding bands or your gold anniversary bands is going to go a long way towards your ring's durability and longevity.
Also known as red gold, pink gold, and rose gold offers a touch of romance to your jewelry collection. If you prefer a traditional ring, rose gold is the choice for you. Often, rose gold is the choice that romantic brides make, as this color speaks of love and romance.
Traditional brides always opt for yellow gold. There are various carats you can choose from. Yellow gold is usually a mix of copper, silver and pure gold to give yellow gold jewelry its signature warm sheen. The hardness of yellow gold will largely depend on which carat you select,
Pure gold allowed with a white metal like palladium and silver is what creates white gold jewelry. This metal has gorgeous shine and beautiful polish that is hard to beat. White gold provides a great background for a diamond setting. Rings made of white gold are plated with brilliant rhodium to give it its white luster. This metal is hypoallergenic and helps in protecting the white gold. Over time, rhodium wears away, although it is still considered a strong metal.
This precious white metal is part of the platinum metal group and popular for its non-tarnishing white color that never needs to be re-plated. Compared to platinum, palladium is easier on the wallet and is a great, durable, low maintenance metal.
Due to its natural white sheen, rarity and hardness, platinum has always been popular for couples when it comes to choosing their wedding or engagement band. Plus, Platinum will never change color or fade. The rings made of platinum are almost one hundred percent pure which means that they are naturally hypo-allergenic, strong and heavy. No matter what your budget is for a wedding or engagement band, platinum is a great option since this will last a lifetime.
Remember, you are not just buying a ring. You are purchasing an heirloom to be enjoyed by several generations that come after you. Select the right precious metal for your bridal diamond anniversary bands and you get great value for money and an amazing reminder of everlasting love.
