Ester Shaffer. Ring. June 16th , 2017.
First, the promise ring that you choose should be made of a precious metal, such as silver, gold or platinum. These types of metals will not turn, should not cause an allergic reaction, and should last for years and years. The second tradition to adhere to is that the ring be one solid circle. Adjustable rings just do not mean the same thing. A continuous circle represents the circle of life or the unending love and affection that you are aiming to embody.
White gold jewellery can cause allergic reactions due to the fact that the majority of it is manufactured using alloys containing nickel as the bleaching agent. A percentage of the population is allergic to nickel, but due to palladium's purity, allergic reactions are avoided.
Palladium was discovered by William Hyde Wollaston in 1803 and has been used as a precious metal in jewellery since 1939. As recently as 2001, palladium was more expensive than platinum and rarely used in jewellery due to the issue of casting - the technology to efficiently cast palladium as jewellery did not exist then. Palladium is extremely difficult to cast well because it is a veritable oxygen sponge when molten; it therefore requires a very controlled melting environment. However, the casting problem has been solved and its use in jewellery has increased because of a large increase in the price of platinum and a drop in the price of palladium.
Tip number three is the color. The color basically refers to the fact that the more yellowish the diamond is, the less value it is. The whiter it is, the more value it has. So one thing, one scam once again that you want to avoid, is the color scam. This is where they will take a low quality diamond and they will artificially color it pink, blue, black because they know people love colored diamonds. But, the problem with that is that they're going to sell it to you as though it was a naturally colored diamond, so you're going to pay too much for something that is a low quality diamond. And the second thing is that after a while the color of the diamond goes away because it's artificial.
It's the shape of the diamond when you look at it from above. Now, there is a type of shape that we call round. Now the round shaped diamonds are the most popular because these are the ones with the most sparkle. There's the heart shaped diamond - this is the most popular with lovers. Then there's the pear shaped diamond; it either looks like a pear or like a tear. This is mostly popular for earrings, less for diamond rings. The oval diamonds; these are good for people who have short fingers because when you have an oval shaped diamond ring it makes your fingers look longer.
