Metal Types


  • Rare and precious, platinum is a bright white metal that is also durable and hypoallergenic.


  • Few metals capture the heart like gold. A traditional choice for all types of jewelry, gold is the most easily worked of all metals because it is naturally very soft and malleable. The higher the karat of gold the softer the metal will be.

Sterling Silver

  • Silver has been valued for centuries and at one time was considered even more valuable than gold. Today, it’s the most affordable of all the precious metals.

Alternative Metals

  • In addition to the big three – platinum, gold and silver – there is a plethora of lightweight, modern‐looking and durable metals that have become popular for jewelry and wedding bands.
