Gold jewelry with diamond never goes out of style, for a good reason, because gold is as wearer-friendly as it is beautiful.The majority of diamond eternity gold jewellery is made in 18ct Gold. It gives the 75% purity in gold jewellery alloyed with other metals making it suitable for everyday wear.

Platinum

Its heavy weight and durability make platinum a metal that will not wear away with constant use. When a platinum ring is marked the metal is simply pushed aside to another part of the band.
