03) Are there 24 Carat gold jewelry;
We can not manufacture 24 Carats jewelry, due to the increased softness that the particular
metal has and makes it extremely difficult to process. The maximum that can be used is 22 Carats and only in handmade jewelry, usually of archaic type.
05) How can I tell/check how many Carats is a jewel?
Every manufacturer is obligated by law to indicate in some point of the jewelry which he produces, the number of Carats, which usually appears as a percentage per thousand.
Based on this rule therefore we have:
- 8 Carats: 333
- 9 Carats: 375
- 14 Carats: 585 (Substantially 14,04)
- 18 Carats: 750
- 22 Carats: 916
08) Can we restore the original intense white color in case of wear and if yes, what will the cost be?
By the same method we use for the first time during manufacturing, we can restore the bright white color of the ring / wedding ring at anytime.
The cost ( in
rings) of the restoration of the color is determined after agreement with the shop where you bought the wedding rings from.
09) Does Platinum "yellows"?
The platinum jewelery don't turn yellow ever, since as has already been mentioned, platinum is by nature white.
In combination with the fact that the platinum jewelery contain 92.5% or more of platinum (Pt)
and only 7.5% additional alloy, this small proportion of the alloy can't affect its color.
This of course is one of the main reasons that platinum jewelery are significantly more expensive than gold jewelery, meaning the large amount (almost pure) of Platinum.
10) Can I enlarge or reduce the size of my wedding ring?
are made of tube from which they are cut into slices and then through specific procedures and processes end up to the desired size.
This method, combined with soft alloys we use, gives us a very important advantage, easy (relatively) resizing of rings without cutting or welding.
However, despite this fact, there are still some limitations.
So generally the following rules apply:
- Α) If there's no gemstone attached, we can enlarge them, up to 4 sizes.
- Β) If there's no gemstone attached, we can reduce their size, from 2 to 3 sizes, depending on it's design (A consultation with the store is required).
- Γ) If there is a gemstone attached, it cannot be reduced or enlarged at all..
All the above applies exclusively to
11) What is the cost for size change?
For the first two cases, no cost is charged, except the dispatch expenses, as they are mentioned on the previous question's answer.
In the third case the cost is calculated after a consultation with the store, from which you purchased your rings. In every case, however, a retouching (freshening up) is provided, free of charge.
12) Why is, rings with a gemstone on them, cannot be enlarged or diminished?
In order to attach a gemstone on a ring, we are opening a hole into which will "nest" the stone.
But at that point as a result, the wedding ring becomes weaker to the exact spot on which we made the tiny hole,
and the slightest force will be exerted in order to grow or diminish the ring, will be concentrated at that point and the break is inevitable.
If there is no hole, the necessary force is distributed evenly across the ring and because it's structure is seamless (without joints) and soft (said alloy), the ring does not break.
Therefore when there is even a single stone on the ring, the wedding ring is replaced with a new one at the desired size, the cost of which is determined after consultation with the store.
Given however that the original ring will be returned, the replacement cost is very small.
13) My wedding ring has scratches and marks on it, what can I do?
Unfortunately and fortunately the ring is a jewelry that is worn continuously.
Fortunately because we rejoice it all the time, then unfortunately because it will most likely being hit,
especially when you consider that is worn on the finger and whatever we grab, comes in contact with it and strains it.
Wedding Rings manufacturers, we give you the option to refresh it and bring it back to its original state (as possible) without any charge other than dispatch fees.
This procedure is recommended not to be done more than two times and only if it's permitted by the state of your wedding ring.
14) Will, the decoration of my wedding ring, be spoiled, and if so, when this will ocure?
The most clear and honest answer is yes, it will be spoiled, but when, it depends mainly on the way you make use of it.
Secondary, depends on the design and especially the texture of the wedding ring. There are textures more sensitive, but also more durable.
However we repeat that your wedding ring will maintain its draft as more careful as you are with it.
