Platinum


Platinum, the most precious metal, is gaining great popularity for use in wedding rings. It is a very dense, heavy precious metal, much more so than gold. It is the strongest of the pure precious metals, but still a little too soft for rings. Small amounts of the platinum family metals ruthenium and iridium are added to increase the hardness of the platinum. Platinum is a beautiful white metal that takes a superior polish. It is an excellent choice for wedding bands that will last a lifetime.


Gold


Gold has been cherished for hundreds of generations and still is today. We import the finest gold jewelry.


What is the metal for my wedding ring? GOLD, SILVER, OR PLATINUM?


A wedding ring can be made from many different metals, with the above three being the most commonly used. 14 karat yellow or white gold is by far the most popular choice. 14 karat gold is actually an alloy consisting of 58.33% pure gold, and 41.67% other metals such as silver and copper. 14 karat gold offers excellent durability, a rich color and luster. 18 karat gold is 75% pure gold, and 25% alloys. It is slightly softer and more easily scratched than 14 karat gold, but it has a richer color. 24 karat, or pure 100% gold, is considered by most to be too soft for use as rings.

Silver is a very soft white metal that can be used as a wedding ring, especially if you are on a very tight budget. Aside from being very soft, silver is prone to tarnishing and discoloration. But, it is very inexpensive.


What types of styles of wedding rings are available? Really, almost any ring can qualify as a wedding ring or band, but there are two basic distinctive types to consider. The traditional plain, and the decorated band. Traditional bands are manufactured in several different styles, flat, half-round, and comfort-fit.


Flat bands offer a linear, understated look. They have a basic rectangular cross section, with very slightly rounded edges. Incidentally, many decorated bands are flat ones by nature. Half-round bands offer by far the most traditional look. Domed or raised in the center, they have a cross section that is flat on the inside, and rounded on top. Some half-round bands can have a beaded or “milgrained” edge for decoration. Comfort-fit bands are a relative newcomer. They are considerably heavier and more costly than the other bands. They have an oval cross section with very smooth rounded edges, giving them the comfort-fit name.


How should I care for my ring?


Avoid exposing your gold or silver ring to any harsh chemicals, especially chlorine and bromine, often found in swimming pools and spas. These chemicals can severely discolor your rings and other jewelry. Also avoid exposing your ring to abrasive substances and surfaces which will cause pitting and scratching. Use a gentle detergent cleaner and a soft brush for normal cleaning. If you do end up with discoloration or severe scratching, bring your ring to Mayfair Jewelers and have it re-polished. This is a simple process that we offer our customers free of charge.


What is the best way to determine my finger size?


Getting the right size ring is important. Even if the ring can be easily sized, as most can, you will save time and maybe money by getting it right from the start. Other things to keep in mind are the fact that some people’s finger sizes change with extremes in weather, the time of day, and friction, (if you’ve been trying rings on all day your finger might become slightly swollen).


Although there are many creative ways to get an approximate ring size, the best way is to actually go in a jewelry store and let a trained jewelry professional size your finger with a metal sizing ring. It is important to let that person know what ring you plan to wear so they can use the same width sizing ring. The wider the shank the larger the size you will need.
