PLATINUM & GOLD EDUCATION

Diamond Buy uses only the highest quality metals in their fine jewelry collection. But, the choice between the various metals can seem confusing. Each metal has its advantages and disadvantages. Read this section to determine which metal is best for you. You will have to consider the characteristics of each metal, the price, and the care required to maintain the metal at its optimum beauty.

Gold
When buying gold jewelry, always look for the karat mark. At Diamond Buy, your choices are between 14k and 18k. When choosing yellow gold, we suggest 18k as it contains more precious metal than 14k gold. The combination creates a more beautiful, richer gold color. Also, because of these mix of alloys, 18k gold is stronger and more durable than 24k. Read on to learn more about gold.

Platinum
Platinum is regarded as the preeminent metal for fine jewelry. It is 35 times more rare and thus more expensive than gold. The white luster of platinum is unique. It is also the strongest precious metal used in jewelry, and is almost twice as heavy as 14k gold. Read on to learn more about platinum.
