A variety of materials can be used for making wedding rings. Be it gold, platinum, diamonds or innovative materials such as ceramic-based composites, there are countless possibilities when it comes to designing rings.
An alloy is a mixture of two or more metals or a metal and a non-metal. Such alloys are produced by melting the individual components together. In addition to fine gold, the gold alloys used for jewellery production contain silver, copper and, in the case of white gold, palladium. Depending on the composition of these additional metals, the desired gold colour can be achieved.
You can be sure that your wedding rings from Fischer are nickel-free. Moreover, only recycled gold is used, which does not have to be freshly mined and is therefore a more sustainable choice. Would you like to learn more about sustainability at Fischer? Then take a look at our blog post.
Rings are available in the following gold alloys
585/- white, yellow, red, grey, apricot gold
750/- white, yellow, red, grey, apricot gold
In addition, the following alloys/materials are also available
Ceramic-based composite material
Wondering what the number before the slash means?
This is the degree of purity of an alloy. It indicates how large the proportion of gold is in the total mass of a metal alloy.
24 carat = 24 carat fine gold = 1000/- gold
18 carat = 18 carat fine gold + 6 carat additive = 750/- gold
14 carat = 14 carat fine gold + 10 carat additive = 585/- gold
9 carat = 9 carat fine gold + 15 carat additive = 375/- gold
Looking out for something to make your wedding rings sparkle? If so, diamonds are a must. There are also some interesting facts about diamonds that you may not yet know. We will take you behind the scenes into the sparkling world of diamonds.
A diamond takes millions of years to form. It is often called the “king of all gemstones”. This name comes from the values that are directly associated with it: Rarity, history and love.
The value of diamonds is determined by the so-called 5 Cs.
The ceramic-based composite material is used by Fischer Trauringe in the “Elise” collection. The material, which originally came from dental medicine, has been further developed for use in jewellery. A variety of extraordinary designs are possible due to the different colourings.
The ceramic-based composite material has the following properties:
- Very smooth, shiny surface
- High-quality combination of materials
- In contrast to cold enamel, it is impact and wear resistant
- True to colour, i.e. virtually no darkening or fading of colours
You may already know carbon from other areas, such as medical technology, aerospace technology or the automotive industry. Fischer Trauringe has devoted itself to this special material and developed FischerCarbon®. Carbon can be perfectly combined with various precious metals to create unique designs.
Carbon has the following properties which make it ideal for wedding rings:
- Outstanding stability of material
- Extremely resistant to chemicals and temperature impacts
- Shows virtually no signs of wear and tear
- Pleasant to touch
- Matt, powerful surface
- Low weight, i.e. even wider ring models are not too heavy and therefore comfortable to wear
