"The challenge of the ancient and modern metals is to use the important characteristics of both to enhance the qualities unique in each." ~ Wes
TITANIUM is lightweight - a little more than a fifth the weight of gold and has the tensile strength equal to mild steel, is non-magnetic and hypo-allergenic. The grade of titanium we use is G-2 which is commercially pure.
GOLD can be hammered to the thinness of gold leaf (from 1/8000 to 1/10,000 mm.), and drawn to wire of hair-fine gauge but which retains its high tensile strength. Pure gold (24 karat) is soft and extremely malleable.
The diamonds are European grade - Fine quality. This is equivalent to or a little better than VS1 or 2.Our diamond suppliers add the following sentence to each invoice:
“The diamonds herein invoiced have been purchased from legitimate sources not involved in funding conflict and in compliance with United Nations resolutions. The seller hereby guarantees that these diamonds are conflict free, based on personal knowledge and/or written guarantees provided by the supplier of these diamonds.”
Our sizing is in ¼ size increments. Due to the nature of most of our designs, the rings can not be resized.
If you are not used to wearing a ring, we suggest that you purchase a silver 'trainer' ring in what feels like the right size and the approximate width of ring you plan on purchasing from Wes & Gold and to wear this ring for a week or so. (Link to trainer ring on Amazon https://amzn.to/2V3CVhq This will give you a much better idea as to your correct size. Most jewelry stores can adjust the size of a silver ring by squeezing or stretching it.
For long term, wear a ring that is a loose fit rather than too tight. It's easier to dry the finger under the ring and to be able to wear it all year round. For safety's sake wear a ring that can be removed quickly if the need arises.
Finger size can change significantly depending on the temperature and on normal daily/seasonal body fluctuations, and if a ring that is comfortable in the summer feels too big when the weather is colder we can make you with a very narrow 'stacker/keeper' band which will be 3/8 to ½ size smaller than your ring. The ring width is 1 ¼-1 1/2 mm.
