Here is a spectacular modern diamond engagement ring that is not only set with genuine antique diamonds, hand made using techniques and styles of yesteryear, but is also made in not only platinum, but our very own 18 carat yellowrose gold. Gold can be made into a combination of carats and colour by adding other alloys into the gold when molten. For example, adding more or less copper will make the gold a rose or pink colour, silver among other white alloys can produce white gold, and then there is 75% gold in the allow it is 18 carat gold and when 37.5% gold, it is 9 carat gold. Knowing all of this, our Master Jeweller who painstakingly hand made this ring created our own 18 carat Kalmar yellowrose gold that has the most magnificent and incredible soft yellow to rose colour that looks amazing on the skin and has such an incredible warm tone to it. Sitting proud in the centre is a fabulous old European cut diamond that measures an impressive 1.78 carats.
