  • Step 3: Choose your gold

    The fineness of gold utilized to set a piece of jewellery plays an integral role in its durability. At , we use the purest forms of gold in our jewelleries, consisting of the choice of either 18K gold or platinum. All jewelleries bear a mark indicating the fineness of gold content and a detailed invoice or receipt stating the content will be issued to our customers at the time of collection/delivery.

    18K Gold

    The standard of fineness for 18K Gold is 750. This refers to the gold content being 75% gold and 25% being other gold alloys, including palladium and silver. 18K Gold jewelleries can appear in white (silvery), black, purple, blue or even rose-colours. It is most commonly seen in white gold because of its strength to withstand normal wear and tear due to its rhodium plating which is extremely hard and it minimizes the jewellery’s vulnerability to scratches.

    Platinum
    For customers who may have slight risk of skin allergies towards the gold alloys used in 18K gold, we recommend setting your diamond onto platinum which is a dense, malleable, ductile precious, gray-white transition metal. The majority of platinum jewellery is 95% pure platinum combined with 5% iridium, palladium, ruthenium or other alloys. We can also set your diamond with 99% pure platinum and 1% palladium. Although platinum is hard in nature, it is also extremely ductile and malleable which is not recommended for setting jewelleries with refined details or with a valuable center diamond. Platinum is also vulnerable to daily wear and tear and can be susceptible to scratches resulted from constant contacts with hard surfaces.


     
  • Step 4: Sizing and Fitting

    Sizing
    If you are making a ring, you may not have the ring size for an intended finger.  suggests a few ways to obtain the correct ring size:

    • Take a current ring that fits the intended finger properly and measure it on  Ring Size Measurement Chart;
    • Wrap a tight string (the texture and material of the string cannot stretch or twist which may yield an inaccurate measurement) around the intended finger and measure its length on a ruler*, this will give the inner diameter measurement for the ring. Find the ring size on  Ring Size Measurement Chart;
    • Ask friends or close relatives of your ring recipient if they know his/her finger size; or
    • Ask the intended ring recipient her ring size if this is not a surprise gift.

    *Be aware that finger size can change depending on the time of day and the weather. You are advised to measure the finger size at the end of day or when fingers are warm, or measure it 3 to 4 times to ensure accurate reading.

    In order to provide full customer satisfaction,  will provide one time complimentary ring resize within three months after purchase. Please contact us to arrange for a ring resize.

    Fitting
    After a design and its size are confirmed, our craftsmen will commence the production process by hand-casting a sliver mold that brings out the maximum level of fire of your chosen diamond. We will arrange a time for you to review and try the size of the mold before the diamond is set. All of ’ rings are produced with an added benefit of comfort fit, a feature which renders the wearer better fit of the ring in between the finger and the palm.

    Upon request, you can also witness the setting process in our production workshop in Central. With your own hands, you can even place the diamond onto the ring while the goldsmith set it securely. Many take this opportunity for a photo to be shown at their weddings!
