Are your diamonds conflict free?
Per the Kimberly Process of 2002 all the diamonds we purchase are from reputable diamond traders and are conflict free. You can rest assured you are purchasing a conflict free diamond as it would not be ethical or legal for us to sell otherwise as the United States and Turkey where most of our rings are made are countries that participate in the Kimberly Process: http://diamondfacts.org/pdfs/conflict/Kimberley_Process_Participants.pdf

How should I size my finger for a Rolling Ring?
Our rings are measured true to size. There is no need to order larger to accommodate for the overlapping of the bands unless you like to wear your rings loose. We recommend you order your normal size and if you need to do an exchange after the fact you can do so per our exchange policy: RETURNS/EXCHANGES
That being said the Rolling Rings do FEEL different than a single band when worn. If you order it too big it will feel like it is going to roll right off your hand. We recommend you wear your ring for a day or two once you get it to get accustomed to how it feels.
Also keep in mind the rings will never be their full width when you add up the widths of each band – i.e. the 3B3CThick measures 4 mm wide per band. This does not mean the ring is 12 mm wide on the finger. Because of the overlapping it will measure between 8 and 10 mm when worn.
What is the difference between 14K and 18K gold?
14K consists of 58.5% gold and 41.5% metal alloys. 14K is harder and will not scratch as easy at 18K. 18K consists of 75% gold and 25% metal alloys. The color of 18K yellow gold will be richer than the 14K but it will also be softer. 18K will weigh more than 14K. When purchasing gold jewelry it is really a personal preference as to which is better.
What is white gold?
There is no such thing as white gold in nature it is man made. The only true white metals are Silver and Platinum. White gold is an alloy of gold mixed with white metals such as nickel, silver, and palladium. Our white gold rings consist of a nickel alloy. Like yellow gold, white gold glitters in a variety of carats: 18K, 14K, or 9K. True White gold will have a yellow hue to it.
Eighteen-carat white gold consists of 75% gold mixed with 25% white metals. Fourteen-carat white gold consists of 58.5% gold mixed with 41.5% white metals. New white gold rings are usually coated with a hard protective finish of rhodium. Rhodium will give the white gold a clean white color. To keep a white gold ring looking its best, we recommend an annual replating of rhodium, since the coating wears off over time. This is especially true for the rolling rings as the friction of the bands rubbing up against each other will wear off this protective finish.
If you purchase your ring from us you are welcome to return the rings to us once a year and have us rhodium plate them for you. We only ask you to cover the shipping charges.
