This is what dream rings are made of

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

600/- platinum
950/- platinum
950/- palladium
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 following 5 Cs determine the value of a diamond
Carat measures the weight, not the size of a diamond. Its origin can be found in nature: The seed of a carob tree once was the base unit used for measuring the weight for those precious stones. The largest diamond ever found had a raw weight of more than 3,000 carat.
The cut is decisive for the sparkle of a diamond. Through accurate proportions and the placement of the facets, the light is reflected from one facet to another and then shines back through the top of the stone. The quality of a diamond can therefore also be recognised by the factors of cut, finish (polish) and proportion.
For the purpose of valuation (grading), the diamond's degree of clarity is measured. Simply put, the clearer a diamond, the more valuable it is.
It is almost impossible to determine the clarity of diamonds with the unaided eye. As diamonds are natural products, small inclusions are natural but reduce the value of the diamonds. Under a 10-fold magnifying glass, the following clarity grades are distinguished: Flawless (IF), very very small (VVSI), very small (VSI), small (SI), as well as clear and larger inclusions.
With the increased attention to sustainability, the certified origin of diamonds is also becoming more important. At Fischer Trauringe, only diamonds of trustworthy and clean origin are being processed.

Ceramic-based composite

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
