Delivering perfect quality is part of our company culture and as such, each ring is tailor-made. A certificate of authenticity guaranteeing quality and originality is delivered for each ring specifically.
In both the design and finish of the ring, a lot of attention is paid to the wearing comfort. Whenever possible, each ring has a so-called Comfort Fit. This means that the ring needs a special curve on the inside allowing it to be pleasant to wear and easily removed and put back on. This comfort fit, however, is not possible for each model. Experience personally how this wearing comfort feels and try on our rings at a recognised dealer or jeweller. This is important, for you will be wearing the VdB&VR ring daily, for the rest of your life.
Platinum is a natural and exceptionally prestigious precious metal.
Do you like a silver white colour? Do you prefer precious metals? If you are not willing to have your rhodium-plated white gold ring polished every year so that it stays beautifully white, then you may want to consider choosing platinum. A platinum ring allows you to wear a ring of the purest material. Platinum is more prestigious and difficult to work with compared to gold. For this reason, we advise you to ask your jeweller whether your chosen ring can also be made in platinum. All rings of the ‘Traditions’ collection can be made in platinum.
It has a silver white colour. Platinum rings keep their same colour forever.
As platinum has a higher density than gold, platinum rings feel heavier than the same rings in gold. These rings are more scratch-resistant than gold ones. Platinum jewellery can easily be repolished to look like new. Please visit your jeweller. Platinum does not oxidize.
Platinum is nearly always used and worked with in its purest form. More precisely, in a 95% (Pt950) alloy. This metal is much more labour intensive and difficult to work with than gold.
Platinum keeps its value. The price of platinum is subject to the fluctuation of international exchange rates and precious metals. For this reason, the selling price can differ from day to day.
Palladium belongs to the group of platinum precious metals. This metal is used in alloys and also to turn yellow gold white.
Its greyish colour radiates discretion and something unusual. Palladium is a nice alternative to 18ct white gold. We combine Pd500 with natural white gold to create an unusual style.
In its purest form, palladium has a soft silver white colour. Palladium rings (Pd500) have a greyish white colour.
With regard to scratch resistance, palladium rings (Pd500) are very similar to 18ct gold. The big advantage is that the colour of palladium rings always remains the same and that the material does not oxidize.
It is used in our rings in a 50% alloy (Pd500). We do not use the 95% (Pd950) alloy as a standard because the pure material is very difficult to work with.
Delivering perfect quality is part of our company culture and as such, each ring is tailor-made. A certificate of authenticity guaranteeing quality and originality is delivered for each ring specifically. Each certificate has to be dated and signed by the jeweller.
A free theft insurance is offered during a 3-year period for a gold (18ct,14ct), platinum or palladium ring from one of the collections of VdB&VR (Mémoire, AURODESIGN, Tessina, Traditions, f'OrU and Pre Wedding Ringcollection).
No, not every ring can be engraved. Most of our rings, however, are completely or partially engravable. Deciding whether or not to drill through a ring for the setting of brilliants will determine possible engraving.
Gold is a valuable precious metal with a high density. As it is really soft, however, it shares your life. Signs of wearing the ring such as scratches are inevitable. Gold jewellery can easily be repolished to look like new. Please visit your jeweller.
Your ring will lose its shine through wearing. That is a natural process. Depending on the finish of your ring (polished, satin, hammered, patina and longitudinal satin), it will shine more, less or not at all. Polished rings have the most beautiful and the brightest shine. We advise you to have your ring polished twice a year by your jeweller to keep its maximum shine. Or to have the original finish looking like new. Is there a special occasion or are you going to a party? Then it is certainly worthwhile having your ring polished! For showing off your magnificent ring will surely make you feel happy!
This process is inevitable. To make champagne coloured (natural white) gold really white, electrolysis is used to apply a rhodium layer around. Wearing the ring erodes this layer, allowing the original champagne colour to reappear. You can always have the rhodium layer reapplied.
