Precious metals like gold, silver, and platinum can all be used for jewelry. While these metals were originally used as currency, their value has grown so significantly that they are now used as investments or jewelry materials.

Choose Your Precious Metal



Gold is one of the most popular choices for jewelry as it is highly workable and can produce such diverse pieces. Its purest form is 24 carats, and the metal comes in a variety of colors, including yellow, white, and rose gold.



While it is less valuable than gold, silver is also popularly used in jewelry and is less expensive since it is more abundant. Sterling silver, which contains 92.5% silver, is particularly common in jewelry pieces.


The hardness and durability of platinum easily make it a highly sought-after metal for engagement rings and wedding bands. It is rarer and higher in value than gold, thus being a top choice for creating luxurious and long-lasting pieces.
