Our Metals and Cost Factors

WHAT METALS DO YOU CARRY?

 

SILVER: All of our silver settings are made from solid Argentium® .935 silver (never plated). It shines like 10k white gold.  It is harder, tarnish resistant and shines brighter than sterling silver. 

We are a proud member of the Argentium® Silver Guild.


GOLD: All of our gold settings are solid USA grade 10k gold (never plated). It is brighter, strong and durable for a lifetime of wear. 

 


OTHER METALS:

We can get any metal that you would prefer, including 14k and 18k gold, Platinum and Palladium, to name a few.   

  • Suggestion – When purchasing a wedding ring, or for any occasion that you will wear it constantly, we highly suggest that you purchase 10k gold. This is especially true for rings with small accent stones. While Argentium® is harder than regular silver, it is not as hard as gold.  

WH​AT OTHER FACTORS GO INTO THE COST OF JEWELRY?

 In addition to the price of the metal you choose, other cost factors dictate the quality, craftsmanship and the final price of a piece of jewelry.  

  • The more metal that is used – the higher the price. Thin metal designs cost less than thick metal designs.  Our jewelry is designed and created as thick metal designs so the piece will last.  They are also are cast as one piece - not soldered strips of metal.  

 

  • We craft all of our rings as “comfort fit” (also known as D-shape), which means more metal (and bench work) is done to round the edges of the shank. The cost is well worth it to give our customers the best in a fine piece of jewelry that they can be proud to own.

  • The type of metal used – Argentium® silver is more expensive than sterling silver.  However, the many benefits of it outweigh the cost factor.  It shines like 10k white gold, is harder, tarnish resistant, and shines brighter than sterling silver.
