Metal Guide
Although it may not be as flashy and exciting as a beautiful stone, the type of metal used to shape jewellery is also something to consider. Here are the three most common types of metals used for jewellery:

Gold: Arguably the most popular type of metal, gold is not only traditional and elegant, but it is also timeless. It is the most versatile type of metal to work with because it is naturally soft and malleable. It comes in an assortment of colours such as yellow, white gold, and rose gold.

Silver: Beautiful and sophisticated, silver is another popular choice of metal seen in jewellery due to its extra soft and flexible properties. Because silver is so soft, it is often mixed with other metals, such as copper, so that it can be more durable. Silver tends to tarnish more easily, so proper storage and cleaning is required to keep your silver jewellery looking timeless.

Platinum: Rare and precious, platinum is a shiny, flexible, and malleable metal that will last throughout the ages. It is an extremely durable metal that is highly scratch resistant and won’t tarnish easily. Due to its density, jewellery made from platinum metal is typically more expensive than gold or silver, but even so, it has become a popular choice for engagement rings.
