Gold used in jewelry is almost always an alloy, for pure gold would be too soft and as a result not workable and not durable enough for everyday wear.
We mainly use the 18k gold alloy, the standard in terms of durability and look.
Yellow 18k gold is a blend of pure gold (also named 24k gold) and other metals, that will harden the alloy.
18k means that it is composed of 18/75, or 750/000 (75%) gold, and 25% of both silver and copper, which are added for stability.
The 18k gold color is very close to that of 24k gold, with a deep and warm yellow, the only difference being that 18k gold will be much harder and easy to wear (you won't risk damaging the metal as much as you would on 24k gold).
We love using yellow gold in conjunction with dark materials, for its color beautifully complements these tones.
For accurate sizing, we recommend you take the measurement of the circumference of your wrist with a measuring tape. The tape shouldn't be too tight around your wrist.
Your bracelet will stretch by approximately 0.5cm over the course of a few days of wear time, so a moderately snug fit is what we recommend when picking your size.
If you are in between sizes, pick the smaller size for a tight fit, or the bigger size for a looser fit. Alternatively, we can custom make the bracelet for you.
For accurate sizing, we recommend that you use a dedicated ring sizer, which we can send for free on request. Please make sure that the ring sizer is not too tight around your finger when measuring.
Because our fingers change size during the day and depending on whether it's hot or cold, you should measure your finger size in the morning and in the evening, and take the bigger size so that you can wear the ring at all times.
