Gold carat refers to the percentage of pure gold in relation to other metals present in your jewellery. Because gold is soft, 100% pure gold isn't suitable to create jewellery. As such, gold is mixed with other alloys to create 3 more durable metals. 18ct Gold contains approximately 75% pure gold, 14ct Gold is 58.3% and 9ct is 37.5%. You can read more about Gold ct and the differences between them here: Choosing your ring metal
Yes, our rings can be made in Platinum by request. You can also read more about the difference between Platinum and White gold here: Platinum vrs White Gold
At this stage we are not taking on projects with customer supplied gold or gemstones.
As we want our special pieces to be treasured for many years to come, we choose to only work in solid Gold. All of our pieces are made in solid yellow, rose and white gold or Platinum as gold is hypoallergenic and a much more durable alloy than silver. We tend to find that silver jewellery tarnishes and changes shape over time because silver is a soft metal. So if you like the look of silver, I would definitely recommend our white gold options or Platinum
