Vintage channel set

Metal Type

Jewellery can be created in a wide range of metal types. Here is a little bit of helpful information to help you choose the right metal choice for your item of jewellery.

PLATINUM
Most popular metal for engagement, wedding and eternity rings.
Most durable and secure setting for holding diamonds. 
Naturally white metal therefore doesn't change colour. 
95% pure platinum with a 5% mix of other alloys.

GOLD
Available as yellow, white, or rose gold. We offer these in 18k (75% pure gold) or 9k (37.5% pure gold).
Strong but soft therefore must be mixed with stronger alloys such as silver, copper, nickle and zinc to strengthen it.

YELLOW GOLD
Gold is naturally yellow therefore this option will retain its colour. Whereas white gold will form a yellow tinge over time.

WHITE GOLD
White gold changes colour over time and you will start to see a yellow tinge. When new, the metal will be plated in rhodium which will give it a bright white colour.
It will need re-plating every six to twelve months which can become expensive.
Platinum is a better alternative for wedding and engagment rings that are worn every day.

ROSE GOLD
Copper is added to yellow gold to give it it's pinkish tinge.

PALLADIUM
Extremely rare. 
Naturally white so will retain its colour. 
Risen in popularity in recent years. 
Not ideal for engagement rings as the claws can be brittle, but still ok for wedding rings. Platinum is a better alternative for engagement rings. 
Part of the platinum metals group. 
95% pure metal

Width

width-court-off-centre-channel-set.jpg

CHOOSING A BAND WIDTH
Depending on the wedding ring design you can choose a width from 2mm to 8mm. We can also customise the width, contact us for more information.
We recommend a band width of between 4-6mm for men and 2.00-3.00mm for ladies. We can also measure and match the engagement ring width perfectly.

Depth

court-depth-lw.jpgcourt-depth-mw.jpgcourt-depth-hw.jpg

CHOOSING THE DEPTH THICKNESS
Dependaning on the style of the wedding ring we offer up to three depth varriations.
When choosing your wedding ring we can measure the depth of your engagement ring to make sure that the two rings match perfectly together without a step in height. Men often opt for a mediumweight depth.

Finish

 

We currently offer all wedding rings with a highly polished finish, if you would like to have a matt/brushed, sandblast, textured or laser patterned detail please contact us at info@sarahphillipsjewellery.co.uk

Finger Size

WHICH FINGER DOES THE ENGAGEMENT RING GO ON?ring-sizing.jpg
In the UK engagement, wedding and eternity rings are typically worn on the left hand 3rd finger.

CHOOSING THE FINGER SIZE FOR A SURPRISE PROPOSAL OR GIFT
If you’re unsure which finger size to choose you may be able to get hold of an existing ring which she wears, from this we may be able to work out her approximate ring size.
To measure an existing ring, you can either bring it into us or if you draw around the inside of the ring on a piece of paper we can work out roughly what the size it is from the diameter using our helpful chart. Click here to download our finger sizing chart as a PDF
Please note that this template is a guide only and we would still advise you to come into have your finger sized correctly in person.
You can also ask her friends and family to help.
If unsure, we advise choosing a ring size which is the national average Size L-O if you select ‘Not sure it’s a surprise’ during the ordering process and we will send you out a standard finger size.
It’s also a good idea to choose a slightly larger finger size if possible so that you can easily slip it onto her finger to pop the question.
If you’re away and the ring is too big we will supply you with a temporary tightening tool to secure at the back of the ring so that she can wear it until you’re able to have the ring sized properly.

TIP - If you're purchasing an Engagement ring and unsure of the finger size/design/diamond then why not opt for our Promise ring solution. A promise ring is a low-cost, temporary version of an engagement ring; manufactured to a very high standard so you will still achieve a ‘WOW’ factor when proposing!

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR FINGER SIZE
The best way to measure your finger is if you live or can travel to the London area is to arrange an appointment to visit us at our studio where our sales consultants will be able to accurately measure your finger. We do this using a measuring gauge.
If visiting us in isn’t a possibility, then contact us to request your free ring sizer which will allow you to measure your finger at home.
To choose your correct finger size the ring should feel tight over your knuckle and sit comfortably on your finger. If possible measure your finger size 3-4 times to be sure your size is correct.
The best time of the day to measure your finger size is in the evening when your fingers are warm and at their largest.
In the morning or when they are cold finger sizes can be become smaller. The weather can also affect your finger size.
Be aware that the thicker/wider the ring is the tighter it will fit. Therefore, if you choose to go for a wider ring you may need to increase your finger size by half or a full size.
If you require a temporary tightening solution during the winter months, contact us for further information.
Please don’t use paper or string to measure your finger size as it can stretch and isn’t very accurate.

WHAT DO I DO IF THE FINGER SIZE IS WRONG?
If the finger size isn’t quite right, don’t worry we can usually resize it for you.
We offer one free ring sizing service on any proposal/surprise gift. For any other sizing requirements, we will charge you £40 per sizing.
Solitaire style engagement rings can usually be sized up or down by 3 sizes.
Unfortunately, eternity and rings with diamond set into the shoulders may not be easily sized. We may be able to exchange the item for an alternative finger size or have the ring remade, however this may come with an additional cost. Also, the metal weight or amount of stones featured in the design may alter slightly.
Please contact us for further information.

HOW DO WE SIZE THE RING?
Our experienced jewellers will either add or remove a piece of metal which matches the quality at the back of the ring to increase/decrease the finger size. The metal join is sealed using a laser welder so that the join isn’t noticeable.

HOW LONG DOES THE SIZING TAKE?
It usually takes approximately 2-3 working days to resize the ring and we can either post it back to you or you can pop in to collect it.

Profile

court-profile.jpgflat-court-profile.jpgparis-profile.jpgcushion-centre-profile.jpgbevelled-edge-profile.jpgconcave-profile.jpg

CHOOSING A PROFILE
If you were to cut through a wedding ring the profile is the crosssection shape. We currently offer a range of six popular design styles.
The traditional court shape profile is a favourite choice for both men and women due to it's comforable fit, however ladies often opt for their wedding ring to match the profile of their engagement ring.
Check out our Classic wedding rings for prices and more information.

Diamond Set

diamond-setting-amount-40-.jpgdiamond-setting-amount-60-.jpgdiamond-setting-amount-100-.jpg

CHOOSING THE AMOUNT OF DIAMONDS SET
You can choose to have the diamonds set 40%, 60% and 100% around the finger.
We recommend a maximum of 60% so that there is still enough solid metal to re-size in future, but still enough diamonds wrapped around if the ring rotates on your finger.

Diamond Shape

diamond-shapes.jpg

CHOOSING THE DIAMOND SHAPE
We currently offer round diamonds only, if you would like prices for any other diamond shapes please contact us at info@sarahphillipsjewellery.co.uk

Diamond Size

diamond-sizes.jpg

CARAT
The diamond carat refers to the weight of the diamond, and not necessarily the size (which is a common misconception). The cut, along with the carat, will determine how large the diamond appears. Diamonds with a lower carat will appear larger with a higher cut (Very Good or better) because the sparkle is more prominent. 
Some weights are considered "magic sizes" – half carat, three-quarter carat, and carat. Visually, there's very little difference between a 0.99 carat diamond and one that weighs a full carat. But the price differences between the two can be significant.
You should also consider the finger size of the wearer. For smaller finger sizes, a smaller carat can still appear quite large.
Lastly, the ring setting should also be taken into account, as larger carat diamonds (for example 2ct and above) may need a particular style.
OUR RECOMMENDATIONWe recommend choosing the carat weight and size of diamond which best suits your budget once all of the four C's have been concidered.  

Diamond Quality

gia-colour-d-h.jpg

COLOUR
Diamond colour is graded from D (completely colourless) to Z (very yellow).
You’ll start to see a yellow tinge from grade G / H onwards, but only very slightly, which means it can be a good choice to maximise your budget.
We can also source D/E/F colour diamonds on request, contact us for more information at info@sarahphillipsjewellery.co.uk
OUR RECOMMENDATIONWe recommend choosing G Colour

gia-clarity-vs-si.png

CLARITY
This refers to the absence of imperfections, known as ‘inclusions’ within the diamond. Inclusions are tiny crystals formed in the diamond, but luckily most of these are only visible under microscope.
In small diamonds we offer VS (Very Slightly Included) or SI (Slightly Included) quality diamonds which is a good choice to maximise your budget. Due to the size of the small diamonds it'll be very difficult to see any inclusions.
OUR RECOMMENDATIONWe recommend choosing VS Clarity

 

Diamond Colour

gia-colour.jpg

COLOUR
Colour is the second most important characteristic of a diamond, and determines if it’s purely colourless or has a noticeable yellow tinge.
Graded from D (completely colourless) to Z (very yellow). D - F won’t show any visible difference to the naked eye. You’ll start to see a yellow tinge from grade G onwards, but only very slight, which means it can be a good choice to maximise your budget.
OUR RECOMMENDATIONWe recommend choosing D to F.  

Diamond Clarity

 gia-clarity.png

CLARITY
This refers to the absence of imperfections within the diamond, known as ‘inclusions’. Inclusions are tiny crystals formed in the diamond, but luckily most of these are only visible under the microscope.  Clarity is the third most important characteristic of a diamond.
Graded from Flawless to I3 (heavily included), choosing a diamond between VS2 (Very Slightly Included) to SI1 (Slightly Included) is a good choice to maximise your budget, because even at these grades you’ll only be able to see inclusions (possibly with some effort) under a 10x magnification. When it comes to your budget, you’ll have a visibly nicer ring by choosing a better cut and colour rather than better clarity.
OUR RECOMMENDATIONWe recommend choosing VS2-SI1 for a Brilliant cut diamond (Round, Princess, Radiant, Pear, Oval, Marquise, Heart & Cushion cut) and VVS2-VS1 for a Step cut diamond (Emerald & Asscher cut) 

Diamond Certification

 

gia-certificate.jpg

CERTIFICATION
Like getting an independent survey when buying a house, you should only buy a diamond that has been certified. The most reliable diamond certifications come from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). They are renowned for their thorough, detailed and highly accurate certificates.
The GIA Diamond Grading Report contains scientifically determined information on diamond shape, Clarity, Color, Cut, Carat weight, proportions and finish. It also identifies any known treatments. Other reports from other entities have since made their way into the marketplace, but GIA is the most recognised.
OUR RECOMMENDATIONWe recommend GIA certified diamonds.

Diamond Diamond Cut / Polish / Symmetry

 cut.png

CUT
This is the most important characteristic of a diamond, because it’s the most visible to the naked eye. Not to be confused with the actual shape of the diamond, the cut refers to the amount of sparkle, and is determined by the depth and width ratio of the diamond. The better the cut, the more sparkle.
Cut is rated from Poor to Excellent. A poor cut diamond can appear dull, regardless of how good the clarity and colour is. Cut grades are only available on round brilliant cut diamonds.
OUR RECOMMENDATIONWe recommend choosing a Very Good or Excellent cut 

Diamond Size / Pricing Budget

 

Simply choose a design, and then pick a diamond size that will fit your eventual engagement ring budget. It’s important to choose a size that matches your budget so that there’s no future disappointment or overspending. See our table below for help choosing a size:

Pricing Budget / Diamond Size
Under £500 0.25ct
£500 - £1000 0.25ct - 0.40ct
