Choosing the Setting

  

Precious metal setting is a significant factor to consider while choosing a ring that will match the person’s style. The type of metal setting is especially important when pairing the engagement ring with the wedding ring.

Platinum

It is the strongest precious metal, with exceptional resistance to damage, impressive durability and the highest level of purity (95%). It is also hypoallergenic.

18k Gold

It is softer and less expensive than platinum, but still highly valued due to the high level of purity ( 75%), rich color and resistance to rust and tarnishing.

14k Gold

This type of gold is known for its strength, hardness, durability and resistance to rust and tarnishing. It is easy to polish and repair. A lower purity (58.3%) and moderate color make it less expensive than 18k gold, but it is still a great value.
