sempak. Ring. January 05th , 2018.
Palladium has had a legally recognised UK hallmark since July 2009 and from January 2010 it is now a compulsory legal requirement for all articles of the precious metal weighing more than 1 gram to carry a hallmark. Hallmarking has protected the UK consumer and ensured that our jewellery industry operates high standards for over 700 years.
With many cultures, the wedding ring is the final gift given from one spouse to the other. In almost every culture the wedding ring is preceded in the relationship by an engagement ring. In most Western Cultures, including Western Europe and the United States the husband and wife will engrave their names and the wedding date as a sign of their commitment to each other.
Tradition and Culture: It has been debated by many scholars when the practice of using rings as symbols of weddings started. The fact remains that almost every country and culture in the planet right now would require rings to bind the couple together. The ceremony may vary because of tradition, religion, or culture; but the presence of wedding rings is guaranteed.
Forget the 2 months salary rule right now. That was just intelligent marketing on the part of DeBeers about 15 years ago. If you make $4,000 a month, then you are talking about spending $8,000 on a diamond engagement ring. Most people that make $4,000 a month cannot afford to spend two months of their salary on a ring. Maybe getting a ring that is worth $8,000 would be a good idea if you can get a great deal and spend around $3,000. Trust me this can be done and we will talk about that a bit in step 5.
Palladium not only feels and looks amazing, but its versatility makes it a jeweller's dream. Stephen Wilkinson, jewellery designer for The Wedding Ring Specialist believes that palladium is going to explode onto the fine jewellery market. \"With high gold and platinum prices, palladium is now being considered as a viable alternative for wedding rings. It doesn't require rhodium plating like white gold and weighs much less than platinum, making it a good alternative for mens wide heavy wedding rings.\"Palladium jewellery continues to gain in popularity, with it's brightness and lustre is transforming it into the metal of choice for both mens's and women's wedding rings.
