Alternative Metals

What are alternative metals?

While gold and silver are probably the most infamous metals used to make jewellery, there are several other metals used to create stunning pieces, including:

Platinum – Great for engraved or embellished jewellery because it is hard and durable. Comes in a soft white hue, similar to white gold, is far more rare and heavier than gold.

Stainless Steel – Strength, durability, and affordability are just some of the perks of stainless steel jewellery. Can be polished to take on different looks, similar to sterling silver.

Cobalt – Built to last a lifetime, cobalt jewellery is a hypoallergenic metal that is four times harder than platinum.

Titanium – A lightweight, yet extremely durable, alternative for wedding bands and rings. Can come in a variety of colours like black, grey, or silver.

Tungsten – A silvery-looking metal that is four times harder than titanium. Also, hypoallergenic and great for wedding rings. Both titanium and tungsten rings cannot be resized.
