  • Stainless Steel
  • Alloy
  • Copper

When you think of creating your design, you likely envision the center stone first. And while there's no denying that the rock almost always steals the show, the metal type is just as important.  Metal plays a key role in its longevity, as well as its overall look.

With so many different materials out there, it can feel overwhelming to pick the best metal for your piece.  

Consider the Cost

Not all ring metal types are created equally, which means that some have a higher price tag. If you're shopping on a budget, you'll need to take the price of certain metals into consideration. 

Keep in mind, though, that an engagement ring or wedding band isn't necessarily a one-time-only cost. If you do opt for a more affordable metal type, like gold-plated, it will likely require re-plating as the color wears down or changes over time. White gold is made from mixing yellow gold with alloys, which is then plated with rhodium, The rhodium is a very thin layer and will need to be reapplied over time. Rose Gold has copper alloy, which can actually oxidize and become darker, making this another factor to keep in mind as you shop. While it's perfectly okay to opt for a budget-friendly alternative, it might require more costly upkeep throughout the lifespan of the jewellery.

Take Your Lifestyle into Account

Your lifestyle can also impact which ring metal type is best for you. Those that frequently work with their hands, or uses chemicals, heavy creams and lotions will benefit from a pure metal that does not tarnish and is less malleable than others. 

There are some metals you may also want to avoid if you have sensitive skin or allergies to them.

To assist with the longevity of our plated jewellery we use a 3 layer protection plating system on our jewellery.
