The main point of difference between the 18ct and 9ct Gold is the amount of pure Gold present in them. 18ct gold jewellery is comprised of 75% of pure gold and the remaining 25% is made up of other metals. In contrast 9ct gold jewellery contains 37.5% pure Gold and the remaining 62.5% of other metals. Another factor that differentiates 18ct gold from 9ct is the colour. As a result, the high proportion of pure gold in an18ct gold jewellery makes it more expensive than the 9ct gold jewellery. Click here for further information
All our Diamonds are independently certified by reputable Diamond Laboratories such as GIA (Gemmological Institute of America), GSL (Gem Studies Laboratory) or DCLA (Diamond Certification Lab of Australia). At Raffini jewellers we arrange for an independent diamond grading certificate with all diamonds over 0.30ct. In cases where certificates are needed, we can provide one through DCLA. Every diamond engagement ring that has a significantly sized diamond should come with an Independent Diamond Certificate. This confirms the quality of the diamond. A certificate from the actual retailer may not be an accurate report of the diamond.
Diamond Certificates outline in detail the quality of your diamond, including diamond carat size, diamond colour, diamond cut, diamond clarity etc.

One of the questions most often arising, when deciding on a piece of white coloured jewellery, is whether to have it made in Platinum or White Gold. Both metals, being white, look identical to a certain extent, however the similarities end there. White Gold is somewhat light grey in colour and needs Rhodium Plating to make it shiny. Platinum is very dense, its density is somewhat twice that of Gold. As a result the cost of a Platinum ring is more than double that of a gold ring. Click here for further information
