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.
