Metal Finishes

Gold, Platinum and Silver jewellery can be finished in various ways to different effect. Highly polished is by far the most popular and will give the brightest shine to any piece. A ring with a satin or matte finish will gleam less and is sometimes used to accentuate diamonds; it is also used increasingly in mens' wedding rings. A brushed finish gives a textured appearance of tiny brush marks, whereas a hammered finish will give a beautiful, unusual wavy effect.
