Madewear offers solid gold in 3 colours and 3 karat qualities for all ring styles:
»  Yellow Gold – Because of its durability and lasting value over time, gold is a wise investment.
»  White Gold – Has the same lasting qualities and value as yellow gold, but different metal.
»  Rose Gold – This is made from a gold and copper alloy. Since copper has a bold pinkish-orange colour, adding this alloy to gold gives the gold a beautiful reddish gold colour.

18k solid gold = 75% pure gold, 25% metal alloy.
14k solid gold = 58.5% pure gold, 41.5% metal alloy.
10k solid gold = 41.7% pure gold, 58.3% metal alloy.
9k  solid gold = 37.5% pure gold, 62.5% metal alloy.

Sterling silver is an alloy of silver that consists of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% of other metal, usually copper. Alloying with copper maintains the silvery colour of the metal, while increasing its strength. In order to be called sterling silver, the metal must possess at least 92.5% pure silver, however, the other components can vary.
