Tailor Made – Creating an 18ct Rose Gold Diamond Ring

The evolution of the internet has made the world a much smaller places enabling us to share ideas and inspiration that we have found on sites such as Pinterest and Instagram. This development has seen a significant increase in the amount of bespoke work that we have undertaken over the last two years, and enabled us to work with clients from all around the country.

In this latest blog I outline the process we went through to create this stunning ring, from the initial online contact with the client to our face to face meetings and ultimately the completion of the ring.

Q & A – Why has my white gold ring gone yellow / grey….

Why has my white gold ring gone yellow on the shank?

When gold is mined it comes out the ground yellow, and in order to make it white the jewellery industry uses a variety of different metals to alloy with it. Different companies will use different alloy mixes depending on whether their focus is price or quality, but all of these alloys will be treated with a rhodium plating to create a bright white finish.
