18kt White Gold Flat Wedding Rings
More Information About 18kt White Gold Flat Wedding Rings
When looking at buying matching wedding rings, the flat profile of wedding rings provides a modern twist on classic or standard wedding rings. This is because both the inner and outer surfaces of these wedding rings is flat, rather than domed, like many other profiles.
Hallmarked 18kt white gold actually starts life as pure yellow gold. This gold is mixed together with a series of strengthening alloys to produce 18kt white gold, which is actually 75% pure gold and 25% alloys. Without these alloys mixed in, the gold simply wouldn't be strong enough for diamond jewellery. 18kt white gold is finished using a rhodium platinum, and it is this rhodium which can start to tarnish after 12-18 months from new, meaning that these white gold wedding rings need to be 're-dipped' in rhodium. This is a very simple and inexpensive process, with many professional diamond jewellers even offering this as a free service.
Modern wedding rings don't come any better than DeJoria Diamonds' flat profile wedding rings, which are available in every finger size, width and finish. These gold wedding rings will typically be more popular with the men, as not very many engagement rings have a purely flat shank and, with many ladies wanting to match their engagement rings and wedding rings, it is not likely to be a popular profile with the ladies. Men, on the other hand, generally don't have the issue of matching engagement rings with wedding rings and so have more of a blank canvass to choose the style and profile of wedding rings UK which suits their individual tastes.
