Choosing the Right Metal for Your Forever Ring - Him and Her
The metal type you choose is key when designing your dream ring. Whether you’re shopping for yourself or a partner, be confident in your choice. At The Moissanite Company, our goal is to provide you with information to help make this decision process, among many others, easier so that no matter which precious metal you choose - it will be perfect for you!
At The Moissanite Company, we craft our rings from four metal types - yellow gold, white gold, rose gold and platinum. Available in differing grades, it leaves you with a complete choice of seven divine metals. Primarily, we work with 14-karat gold, 18-karat gold and platinum, in addition to 9-karat gold, and Zirconium for our men's ceremonial rings.
For Her - Women Engagement Rings:
There are many factors to consider before making a decision on which metal is best fit for your forever ring. With our commitment to offering bespoke designs and tailoring each ring to perfection, factors such as skin tone, durability and, of course, your personal style are taken into account. When choosing a precious metal for your dream ring, your existing jewellery will also be of immense help - as the metal of your engagement ring will often influence the type of jewellery you wear daily.
When considering gold, we offer three different tones: yellow gold, white gold, and rose gold, all available in both 14-karat and 18-karat grades.
If you have fair skin and light eyes, white gold may be the best option for you. The simplistic white-toned finish, similar to that of platinum, will complement those with a cooler complexion beautifully. Alternatively, yellow gold or rose gold compliments those with darker features - allowing a gorgeous contrast between the warm undertones of the metal and natural skin tone. Both are divine pairings.
With the option of bespoke customization via our Custom Design Route, you can include multiple metal types in one design. So take some time to explore all of your choices - you'll be sure to find something that speaks volumes about who you are!
For Him - Men's Ceremonial Rings:
For men who lead an active lifestyle and are hard on their rings – durability should be a top priority when selecting a metal.
Pure gold (24 Karat) is far too soft for everyday jewellery and shows scratches and dents easily, with little durability. This is why other metals like copper, palladium and zinc are mixed with gold to create more usable grades of gold that are stronger and more durable - the more alloyed metals contained, the more durable.
At the Moissanite Company, we are committed to crafting rings that last you a lifetime of love. Therefore, we offer an option of 9 Karat gold, Zirconium and Platinum for heightened durability.
Platinum, the epitome of strength and resilience, is the perfect choice for men's ceremonial rings built to withstand the test of time. As a naturally white metal, it exudes a luxurious sheen that compliments fairer skin tones, making it an ideal choice for those who appreciate understated elegance. What sets platinum apart from other metals is its remarkable density and durability. It is highly scratch-resistant, which makes it an excellent choice for men who lead an active lifestyle or work with their hands. Its strength and durability also mean that a platinum ring will retain its shape and form for many years to come without losing any of its precious metal thickness over time. Unlike white gold, platinum doesn't require rhodium plating to maintain its pristine, lustrous appearance.
Our ceremonial bands are elegant and timeless for all men - whichever style and metal you choose.
Our commitment to providing exceptional rings includes offering bespoke customisations to make your ring truly unique and personalised to suit your individual style! We pride ourselves on being Bespoke, Ethical and Affordable - meaning you can rest at ease knowing that all options are sourced from ethical origins and placed in the hands of those with the highest quality craftsmanship.
