Are your Signet Rings Solid Gold or Gold Plated?
All our Family Crest Signet Rings and Coat of Arms Rings are solid Gold (or Silver, Titanium or Platinum) - they are not plated. This is an important distinction of value. We are aware that some Coat of Arms Rings suppliers plate their rings with Rhodium, for example, to achieve a "White Gold" or Platinum-ish look, and have even characterized this as "standard in the industry." Keep in mind - this is a ring that you will have forever and, in all likelihood will be passed down through the generations. While you may save a few dollars on a gold plated ring, we do not recommend it.
We use Precious Metals - not Stainless Steel or other common place Metals. Why?
We are creating an heirloom not a trinket.
If it's a metal you've never heard of before (Questra, Palisil, etc.) - it's not a Precious Metal, is certainly not a high-end piece of jewelry and without question is an inferior ring lacking the pedigree, artistry and brilliance of an artisan capable of creating an exquisite family ring that will be treasured forever.
A metal is deemed to be "precious" if it is Rare, Natural and of High Economic Value. We believe these qualities are interlocked with your high-end, timeless Family Crest Ring. Gold is rare and natural - two perfect characteristics for your custom family ring - a ring that will be glanced at by countless thousands of people over time. Some will ask about your ring - it's not just another household metal - it's a metal with intrinsic value, designed and carefully engraved with coat of arms symbols that tell a story, your story.
Here is a list of the metals we provide for our Signet Rings:
- Yellow Gold - White Gold - Rose Gold
These are the three universally accepted, truly authentic, natural precious metals that have stood the test of time:
Silver - Gold - Platinum
The observant reader may ask: Is Titanium really precious? Technically no. However, if someone were shooting at you and you had a choice of Silver or Titanium, in that moment we would think Titanium would be very precious. In fact, Titanium is the strongest metal on earth and it has the highest strength to weight ratio which means it is also incredibly light - a ring with character. This is why we have added Titanium to our collection.
