Jewelry for DW
« on: March 12, 2018, 06:05:09 PM »
DW wants custom 2-tone ring that is most durable; in other words least likely to fade or tarnish over time.  She wants to wear it everyday

If value of metal is not a factor whats the best option: stainless steel, 10k gold, 14k gold, pewter? other metals ?

Platinum is your best best. Costly, but will never tarnish, ever.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

If you really like 2-tone, you should look into Mokume Gane

I have a two tone ring that she likes already but losing its luster; looking for someone to duplicate on the cheap side with materials that will not tarnish

I donít know how old u are but in a couple of years gold would not tarnish. If itís ďloosing itís lusterĒ thatís comes from abuse, canít really avoid that on a jewish womenís finger even if u using platinum +18k. The advantage with platinum is A) itís stronger and will not scratch as easy B) naturally white so it will stay whiter longer.
