Wedfit Jewellery Design
Welcome to a new era in jewellery design…Goodbye shaped wedding rings. Hello Wedfit. Available in all popular diamond shapes and sizes, Wedfit does away with the chore of making individual fitted wedding rings. Revolutionary new Wedfit styling creates an engagement ring which fits flush against a standard wedding ring. Wedfit is available in platinum or gold, many from stock.
Platinum or Gold? You Choose!
Platinum and gold are both precious metals and excellent for the craft of jewellery making. When platinum is mined from the ground, it is naturally white and maintains the look throughout the years with no added maintenance. White gold starts out as yellow gold from the mine and is then mixed with zinc and nickel to make it whiter in colour. When it is finished as a piece of jewellery, it is then rhodium plated to make it a true white. Over time, this plating wears off and has to be re-applied in order to maintain its ‘whiteness’
The main differences between Platinum and Gold
Platinum costs more than gold for several good reasons:
Platinum is approximately 60 times more rare.
Platinum is a purer metal than 18ct gold.
Platinum is 50% more dense than 18ct gold and is therefore heavier by comparison.
Like all precious metals, platinum does get scratched! A platinum surface when scratched, will actually separate and make room for the scratch without loss of metal. This means that platinum does not lose the miniscule amount of metal that disappear when other precious metals are scratched. Over time, platinum develops a natural patina that many prefer over the ‘just polished’ look. This patina is one factor that makes platinum very special at any age.
