Diamonds are extremely rare, with concentrations of at most parts per billion in the source rock. Loose Diamonds are also found along existing and ancient shorelines, where they tend to accumulate because of their size and density. There are sources other than the Earth’s mantle for Diamonds; when meteorites strike the ground, the shock wave can produce high enough temperatures and pressures for micro diamonds and nanoDiamonds to form. Popigai crater in Russia may have the world's largest diamond deposit, estimated at trillions of carats, and formed by an asteroid impact.
In the early 1900s, the wishbone became a symbol of love when people would hang wishbones above their door in a bid to find a partner. For many people today, the wishbone is a symbol of luck. These two meanings make this style of ring a fantastic gift for weddings, anniversaries, engagements, birthdays and other special occasions.
White Gold is an alloy of Gold and at least one white metal (usually nickel, Silver, or Palladium).
White gold's properties vary depending on the metals used and their proportions. The term White Gold is used very loosely in the industry to describe karat Gold alloys with a whitish hue. The term "white" covers a large spectrum of colours that borders or overlaps pale yellow, tinted brown, and even very pale rose. The alloys used in the jewellery industry are Gold–Palladium–Silver and Gold–Nickel–Copper–Zinc. The nickel used in some White Gold alloys can cause an allergic reaction when worn over long periods (also notably on some wristwatch casings). Gold is rarely pure Gold, even before another metal is added to make a White Gold alloy and often contains a mercury alloy from its production, which can cause an allergic reaction. Where possible I source my White Gold from within the EU where the usual mix is the former. It is impossible to know the mix in a preloved or vintage item, sadly; I usually have the item re-plated with Rhodium to minimise any risk. All new White Gold items are 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.
