18CT WHITE GOLD 4MM COURT SINGLE DIAMOND WEDDING BAND
This is a gorgeous 18ct White Gold wedding ring with a single Diamond that exudes a subtle elegance that is second to none!
The White Gold is soft, smooth and oh so luxurious, running all the way around the band with a minimalist design. Court bands are rounded slightly on the inside of the band as well as the outside, which adds a curvy and organic feel to the ring. In cross-section, they would appear oval. This is where the singular twinkling 0.03ct (2mm) Diamond sits, in its 18ct White Gold bed of pure understated comfort. The Diamond is rubover set; there are no claws to catch on clothing.
She would make a fantastic wedding band, looking beautiful next to perhaps a fabulous engagement ring. But this sparkling beauty would also look perfect stacked with other White Gold rings, showcasing your love of White Gold on every finger... Very boho and delicious!
This ring currently is a size O /US 7.5/ EU 55.25. It is sizeable within reason, please contact me if required. It weighs a luscious 5.5g.
In medieval times gold was considered good for your health, following the belief that something so beautiful and rare had to be good for you. I read recently that over 98% of all of the gold ever mined on our planet is believed to still be in circulation today. As gold effectively acts as a currency and can easily be melted down and converted to cash, this is the main reason why there is so little heritage jewellery that has survived the centuries. It’s not that gold is not durable; it is just the case that very few pieces have survived the various depressions and recessions. Once gold pieces are converted to cash they are normally melted, sold as bullion and then eventually resold to jewellers to manufacture back into jewellery. There is every chance that somebody reading this is wearing an item of gold jewellery, from which a portion of the metal in the piece was once worn by royalty.
White gold is usually enhanced with Rhodium plating. To preserve this plating, avoid swimming in your jewellery as chlorine, in particular, can cause faster degradation. Chlorine is present in small amounts in tap water, so it is best to avoid getting your jewellery wet where possible. It is a simple matter to have items re-plated.
Until the late 1800s, Diamonds were among the rarest gemstones on the planet, and due to their incredible hardness, coupled with the belief that cutting them would reduce their magical powers, were often not faceted. In fact, it was not until the 1400s that the first rudimentary facets were being applied to the gem. Then, in the late 1800s, everything began to change with the discovery of Diamonds in South Africa. Through huge marketing campaigns by the owners of these new deposits, the new kid on the gem block went from being fairly unknown, to unquestionably the global leader within half a century.
