Selecting Diamond Wedding Rings for a Couple Tying the Knot: Many men think that the most important ring they would buy in their life is the engagement ring. However, the engagement ring must only be second to the wedding ring.
Palladium looks like platinum, feels like platinum, is part of the platinum family and is a great alternative to platinum when it comes to wedding rings. Like platinum, palladium can be fashioned into jewellery on its own or alloyed with other metals. Palladium is 30 times rarer than gold and doesn't need rhodium plating or bleaching to achieve its naturally coloured white finish.
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.
To achieve simplicity, a ring formed from another metal is made as a base for the diamonds. However, the metal itself would either be gold or platinum since they are the only ones that can hold onto diamond. One of the rare moments that gold is not the main feature in a ring is when a diamond is on top. In the case of wedding rings, the diamonds would then be lined around the metal band. The final form still exudes elegance without having to be as extravagant as it really is. You can also take time to look into different wedding ring catalogs. These are usually available online and in your local jewelry stores. Most of the jewelers, moreover, are willing to modify or even tone down some of the designs to accommodate your requests.
The next tip is the cut. The cut basically is how the diamond is cut. And the thing you want to know about that is that the better a diamond is cut the more sparkle it will have. The sixth tip I want to give you is the shape.
