At RingCompany.com, our rings are offered in a variety of metals. Not all ring models are available in all metals. Please refer to our website and the online Ring Designer to see what ring models can be ordered in what metals.
All our metals are blended and cast in their solid form and polished to their “natural” state. That is, there is no plating or coating of any kind over the metals. This means that rings made with these metals can always be re-polished to their original natural shine. In addition, rings made in silver or gold can be re-sized to different finger sizes as required.GOLD METAL OPTIONS
Pure gold is generally too soft to be used for jewelry so other metals (alloys) are added.
The karat system is used to state the amount of pure gold found in an item.
Different colors of alloys lead to different colors overall. Our rings can be ordered in your choice of yellow or white gold. In either case, the karat content is the same.The gold Metal options we offer are:
6KTY= 6KT Yellow gold
10KTY=10KT Yellow goldor10KTW=10KT White gold
14KTY=14KT Yellow goldor14KTW=14KT White gold
18KTY=18KT Yellow gold
Note: Our rings can be ordered in 18KT but we actually do not recommend it. 18KT is still a very soft metal and if you are not careful, you can actually rub away some of the finer details on your ring. However, we recognize that in some cultures, this is the most popular mixture so we do make it available.STERLING SILVER (SS)
Pure silver is too soft to use in its pure state and alloy is added to strengthen it.
Sterling Silver contains 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% alloy.
Silver does naturally tarnish but can be cleaned with readily available silver cleaners.TRSS or SUPREME SILVER+ (SS+)
Tarnish Resistant sterling silver. Compared to regular sterling silver, this blend is a harder metal and is more resistant to tarnishing.JEWELLER’S STAINLESS STEEL (JST)
Also known as “Surgical Stainless Steel” but the technical designation is “AISI 316L Stainless Steel”. This is the highest grade of Stainless Steel that can be used in jewelry and does not require plating or coating.
It is a very hard, durable metal and very tarnish resistant making it a very good option for our rings. The only drawback is that since the metal is so hard, the finger size cannot be changed once the ring is made.
NOTE: Many companies offer jewelry in “stainless steel” but few use this grade as it is very difficult to work with. Lower grade stainless steel must be coated or plated or they will discolor and tarnish.
