Rings and mens rings in 24k gold

Yellow gold is the most desired of the precious metal in jewelry, because of the heat of its glare, it has no equal.

Most family rings or signet rings are in 18-karat gold, but it is normal for exceptional jewels or signet rings that will remain for generations in the family to want a gold of the highest purity, of 24 karats.

Precision, 24-karat gold is necessarily yellow since it is not mixed with any other metal likely to change its color.

So there is no chance to find 24 karats white gold, pink or black gold. The only way to change 24k gold color if plating it with white or black rhodium.

Championship rings are characterized by a very bulky design, most of the time presenting a large central stone in the upper part of the plateau.

They are often produced in series for a promotion party, to celebrate a championship or sporting event.

They require a lot of work for manufacturing, as we will see in this article.

If it was necessary in the past to be born noble to be able to wear his family crest on the finger, this is no longer the case today.

Similarly, in terms of the manufacturing method, the techniques have evolved.

The traditional method historically for the reproduction of family crest on the signet rings is the manual engraving made on a signet ring in forged gold.

Gold masonic ring

Freemasonry has existed for centuries and uses symbols from its origins in the art of building.

This is how one finds almost systematically on the Masonic creations the compass and the square, the basic tools of the builders of the ancient time.

It should be noted that these symbols are also shared with the companions of duty.

It is therefore normal to see on most masonic rings these symbols reproduced in the form of engravings or moldings.

In the case of the project presented here, it is an 18 karat white-gold Freemason ring surmounted by a natural onyx stone receiving in its center the square and the 18-carat yellow gold compass.
