Black Ceramic

Black Ceramic is a modern alternative to the traditional, gold wedding band and is among the hardest materials known to man. Only a few things in the world, including diamonds, can scratch this beautiful piece of jewelry - thus enabling an exquisite and permanently polished piece.

Known for its glossy appearance that does not fade over time, Black Ceramic is comparable to Tungsten Carbide in its ability to resist showing signs of wear. Like tungsten, Black ceramic is not sizable and may break if struck with high impact against a hard surface.

Rose Gold

Rose Gold (also referred to as Pink Gold or Red Gold) has a stylish spin on traditional yellow gold with its bright color that ranges from rose, red to pink.

Rose Gold contains a mixture of Gold and Copper alloy which are commonly used in jewelry. Even though it has interchangeable names, there are differences between red, rose and pink Gold which is the amount of Copper alloy added; the more Copper, the redder the color.

Like its Yellow Gold counterpart, Rose Gold has a lower scratch resistance and because of its bright color has become a popular choice for fashion earrings, pendants, rings and watches at affordable prices.
