A ring's quality and price are determined by three factors: the type of precious metal used in the band, the gem grade of any diamonds or gems used, and the level of jewellery craftsmanship.
The most hard-wearing, valuable and expensive metal is platinum, followed by 18K white gold, 18K yellow gold, 14K and 9K golds, and finally, silver. Palladium is also a recognised precious metal and it's value is roughly the same as white gold's.
A hallmark stamp inside your ring's band will tell you what kind of metal has been used, and guarantee its purity.

The more complex your ring's setting and design is – and the more skill that's needed to make it – the higher its quality and value. That's why a craftsmanship guarantee offered by a retailer is always a good indication that your ring has been made to a high standard. For example, all of our jewellery is made by hand in our workshop by our very own, highly experienced jeweller. That's how we know all our jewellery will stand the test of time – and why we can confidently offer a five year guarantee on every single item we sell.
