Queen Haley. Ring. October 15th , 2017.
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.
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.
Now, there's two things you've got to know about this. First, the carat for a diamond, or for gold, is not the same thing. So for example, for gold karat is written with a \"K\" and the value of the karat isn't the same as for the diamond. And the second this is make sure you don't fall for the carat total weight scam. This is basically where they say this amazing ring is three carats, and you go oh, this is a huge diamond but it's actually a scam because the three carats is the weight of the whole ring including the setting and the band - not only the diamond.
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.
Tip number two: the first C; what we call the carat. The carat is basically the weight of the diamond instead of measuring the weight of the diamond in milligrams or in fractions of pounds, they use a unit of measure called carat.
