There are many occasions for buying rings, whether you are buying for yourself or for a loved one. Whether it be for a special occasion such as a birthday or anniversary, or something as significant as a wedding ring, Michael Hill’s extensive range of precious rings are all crafted to be treasured.
What ring metal is the most durable?
At Michael Hill, our Gold Standard means that our jewellery is crafted with quality, precious metals including sterling silver and gold. Our gold jewellery is always 10ct gold or higher. Gold rings are durable and the most popular choice for jewellery meant to last a lifetime, such as engagement rings and wedding rings. White gold rings are often plated with rhodium - a naturally shiny, silver-white and corrosion-resistant metal - to enhance their white colour, and over the years re-plating may be required to keep your ring shining as beautifully as the day you bought it. For men, we also offer tungsten and titanium rings, both of which are extremely hard and durable metals, and perfect for everyday wear if you work with your hands. We recommend you bring your precious jewellery to Michael Hill for regular complimentary cleaning, to keep it shining.
Can you mix and match ring metals?
Stacking and contrasting rings of different metals has become increasingly popular, and wearing a combination of yellow gold, sterling silver and rose gold rings can make a bold fashion statement. Wearing jewellery is all about showcasing your personal style, and wearing different ring metals is one way to do this.
How do you stack rings?
Stacking rings is the perfect way to express your unique style, and use a number of rings that mean something to you to make a statement. Our best advice for stacking rings is to select a number of statement rings that you really love, such as gemstone or diamond rings, infinity rings or promise rings, and mix these with a number of more simple bands in the precious metal of your choice. Start stacking using the rule of three, with the largest feature ring in the middle, and then go crazy! For more detailed advice on stacking your rings, check out our guide to stacking rings
How do you find out your ring size?
When selecting your sterling silver or gold ring, remember that sizes vary between fingers and hands. With this in mind, it’s important to consider which finger you’re buying your ring for when purchasing.
