Quality And Affordable Wedding Rings
It is very important to find quality wedding rings and still affordable. Rings are a symbol of love to one another. I believe that the type of a ring you get for your wedding should resemble the love of your soul mate upon you. This symbol lasts forever even in death. The ring symbol goes beyond the frieze “death do us apart”. 95% of people when they’re getting married they use this frieze but what you will realize is that when one pass away, the remaining partners are still wearing their wedding rings.
Rings are designed in different ways. The are made by different types of material and styled in many ways. The common material that makes rings are Gold, Silver, Sterling silver, Wood, Stainless steel, Titanium, Tungsten, Platinum, Goldplated, Gold filled, and Silver plated.
Gold Rings- This is one of the most quality and expensive rings with the value that does not depreciate. They are identified in karats. 24 and 22 karats are 100% pure gold and not used for jewelry because they are too soft. 18k is 75% pure gold, 14k is 58.3 % of pure gold and this is the most popular and is less expensive compared to 18k. Most of the time are hypo-allergic. 10k is 41.7%. You will be able to identify your ring by the letters that are written inside. You will be able to find it in yellow color, white color, and rose.
Gold filled- It is when a thick layer of gold has been filled on another piece of metal. This is much valuable compared to gold plated and it has higher quality. This is the one you may find that is 18k and 14k.
It may be difficult to be able to identify the different between gold filled and gold plated because some are not marked with any karat. Some rings are marked 1/20 which is 20% of gold and this means is gold plated. 1/50 is 50% gold and this means is a gold filled ring.
