Black Ceramic
Black Ceramic is a modern alternative to the traditional, gold wedding band and is among the hardest materials known to man. Only a few things in the world, including diamonds, can scratch this beautiful piece of jewelry - thus enabling an exquisite and permanently polished piece.

Known for its glossy appearance that does not fade over time, Black Ceramic is comparable to Tungsten Carbide in its ability to resist showing signs of wear. Like tungsten, Black ceramic is not sizable and may break if struck with high impact against a hard surface.

Rose Gold
Rose Gold (also referred to as Pink Gold or Red Gold) has a stylish spin on traditional yellow gold with its bright color that ranges from rose, red to pink.
