While gold and platinum rings are the go to choices for fine jewelry because they are durable metals known for standing the test of time, sterling silver rings can be just as beautiful and last for many years, even though sterling silver is a soft and delicate metal. Because it is a soft metal, resizing a sterling silver ring can present problems. Depending on ring’s style and history, a qualified jeweler may be able to resize ring.
White Gold And Silver Rings
According to Gillett Jewellers, white gold is the second-most popular color of gold next to yellow gold. Different mixes of metal alloys, such as silver and palladium, give white gold its color. Silver isn’t as strong as gold. It’s considered a soft metal. White gold is harder. It contains a certain amount of pure gold measured in carats. Gold of the same carat weight is the same quality regardless of its color.
