Precious Metals – 18ct Gold and Platinum Jewellery

MDTdesign and the Precious Metals we Choose

MDTdesign gives our clients the selection of using 18ct white gold, yellow gold and rose gold, as well as the option of platinum. There is a big difference between 18ct white gold and platinum in terms of the natural colour of the metal, weight and also longevity of the final piece created. When you are in-store, we can show you the difference between each metal and explain the advantages and disadvantages of each.

All our 18ct gold jewellery is stamped with 750 which is denoting 75% pure gold with the other 25% remaining being made of other alloys to create the colour of the metal as well as add strength. All our platinum that is used by us is 95%+ pure platinum therefore stamped with 950. The remaining percentage of the alloy although very minimal, is made up of different metals to make more workable.

A Spectrum of Precocious Metal Colours

MDTdesign proudly presents a spectrum of precious metals, empowering clients with choices ranging from 18ct white, yellow, and rose gold to the enduring allure of platinum. Delving into the nuances of these metals, MDTdesign ensures clients make informed decisions, understanding the distinctions in color, weight, and longevity inherent in each selection. Within our showroom, clients are guided through a tactile exploration, experiencing firsthand the unique characteristics and advantages of each metal option.

In the realm of 18ct gold, our commitment to purity is evident through the hallmark stamp denoting 750, signifying 75% pure gold complemented by a blend of alloys enhancing both color and durability. Conversely, platinum, a pinnacle of purity, boasts a stamp of 950, representing its 95%+ platinum composition meticulously crafted for optimal workability and resilience.

Precious Metal Colours

18ct White Gold Precious Metals

At MDTdesign, the journey into white gold unveils its natural hue—a subtle grey, inherent to all palladium-based 18ct white gold. To elevate its brilliance to a platinum-like gleam, each piece undergoes meticulous rhodium plating, enhancing its luster and vibrancy. Over time, the rhodium plating may gently fade, revealing a hint of grey beneath. However, our commitment to excellence extends beyond purchase, offering a lifetime refinishing and rhodium plating service, ensuring your treasured pieces retain their luminous allure indefinitely.
