Yellow gold comes in three basic alloys: 9ct, 14ct and 22ct. 18ct gold is an alloy of gold, copper and silver being 750 parts gold to 1000 parts. It is an ideal gold alloy in terms of hardness, wearability and colour to make into fine jewellery and has a strong history of being the most popular of all precious metals.
With heat treatment during the manufacturing process, this alloy remains malleable and easy to work for wedding rings, engagement and dress rings, pendants and earrings. The gradual work hardening during the final making and finishing process makes the metal hard enough for everyday wear whilst looking rich in colour and feel.
The Christopher Wharton yellow gold diamond engagement ring collection has been chosen with the utmost care and passion. Immaculately crafted pieces in an array of classic and contemporary designs. All are timeless in this distinct yellow gold setting.
