Learn About Metals

Precious metals can be used in settings to showcase gorgeous gemstones, or as the primary material for a beautiful, shining jewelry piece. How well do you know your metals? Learn more about the types of precious metals for jewelry below, or visit with our knowledgeable staff for more information.

Yellow Gold

The classic beauty of yellow gold is unmatched. Yellow gold adds lustrous, glowing warmth to your jewelry look. Made from a mixture of pure gold and either zinc or copper, gold is measured in karats. The higher the karat amount, the purer the gold.

White Gold

White gold is a form of gold with a distinctly attractive pale white or cream color. It looks similar to platinum, but is more malleable, making it easier to work into intricate designs. White gold lends extra dazzle to diamonds and presents a modern take on the classic elegance of gold.

Rose Gold

Rose gold is a gold-copper alloy with a pinkish hue. This fashionable type of gold brings a warm, subtle look to your jewelry and works beautifully with colorful gemstones.


Platinum is naturally a brilliant white and won’t fade or change color over time. It’s also incredibly durable, so a platinum jewelry piece is likely to become a beautiful heirloom that your family can cherish forever.


Cobalt is bright in color and not plated, making it scratch resistant. It can appear blue-hued in certain light and is often used to make durable wedding bands for men.


Tungsten is an incredibly tough, durable metal. Very scratch resistant, Tungsten is likely to retain its beauty and luster for a longer period of time than other metals. It’s often used in men’s wedding bands.
