We get asked a lot of questions about jewellery and precious metals in general, so here are a few of the most commonly asked ones:

What's the difference between yellow gold, white gold and rose gold?

YELLOW: gold, copper, zinc and silver.
ROSE: gold, more copper than in yellow gold, zinc and silver.
WHITE: gold, palladium, zinc and silver.

What does pav'e (par–vay) setting mean?

It means "paved" – small interlocking stones covering an area.

Why do diamonds of the same size differ in value?

It's value is determined by it's quality – the 4 C's: Clarity, Carat weight, Colour and Cut.

Can I use old jewellery to make into new?

Generally yes, particularly with yellow gold. White gold can be difficult to re–melt.

How often should I have my jewellery checked?

The more frequently you have it checked, the more chance of identifying potential problems. It is recommended to have valuable pieces checked about once a year.

Can you have gemstones re-polished?

Usually yes, even diamonds – and they can often be re–cut if chipped or broken.
