Precious Metal Information

PRECIOUS METAL INFORMATION

Goldsmiths work in precious metals; gold, silver, platinum and palladium. We use these metals in various ways to hand forge, hand make, cast or hand finish to form your beautiful one off piece of jewellery.

If you are considering a bespoke ring or a one-off piece of custom made jewellery, you might like to find out a little more about the various precious metals that we can use for your design commission.

So we’ve put together some information pages to help you find out more. Did you know, for example, that gold comes in 3 different colours: yellow, white and rose? Did you know that the purity of 9 carat will produce a different colour to the purity of 18 carat? Did you know that our chief goldsmith Richard invented a finish called the ‘Tunstall’ finish which is very popular?

We hope you enjoy browsing through this information to find the right precious metal for your journey. If there is anything we can help you with don't hesitate to contact us
