This depends on what you want us to do. First we need to check whether it is technically possible to achieve what you are asking. We do this in consultation with our goldsmiths and diamond setters. If what you are asking is achievable, then we calculate a surcharge based on the amount of time and extra material needed to carry out the requested, special change. This is what we call a ‘special’. Your jeweller will gladly inform you more.
Most models already exist in different gold colours. If your ultimate choice does not already exist in your preferred colour, then you will sometimes pay a surcharge. There is no surcharge for changing from red to yellow or from yellow to red gold. For changes involving white gold, there usually is a surcharge. Your jeweller will gladly inform you more.
Pure gold has a shiny yellow colour. Pure gold is far too soft to work with and to prevent the ring from bending, an in-house alloy is made. For an 18 carat alloy you need 750 parts of pure gold and 250 parts of other metals. These metals influence the colour of the gold. To give the gold a white colour without using nickel, there is a lot of palladium (precious metal) in the alloy. This precious metal is more expensive than nickel, bronze or silver. To make the obtained champagne coloured (natural white) gold really white, we use electrolysis to apply a rhodium layer around the ring. So white gold rings are more expensive because of the use of palladium and the extra rhodium process.
The prices on this website are the officially published and valid sales prices, VAT included. The price of gold, platinum, palladium, silver and black steel is subject to the fluctuation of international exchange rates and/or precious metals. For this reason, the selling price can differ from day to day. The price of stainless steel and titanium does not fluctuate.
Within 6 months after the purchase or wedding date, the size of the ring is adjusted for free should it no longer fit. For a size adjustment 6 to 18 months after the purchase or wedding date, you need to pay a small service charge (S2). For a size adjustment as from 18 months after the purchase or wedding date (S3), you need to pay a slightly higher charge. This charge differs from ring to ring. Ask your jeweller about the price of the service levels when buying your ring.
