Choosing The Perfect Precious Metal:
Selecting the right metal for your wedding ring is extremely important. Some of the popular precious metals used in making a wedding ring include Gold, Platinum, Silver and Palladium. Temple and Grace often use these precious metals in combination with each other to produce a unique wedding ring.
Gold Wedding Rings
Since generations, gold has been hight sought after. It has grown to be known as a symbol of wealth. One of the reasons that Temple and Grace clients' prefer having a gold wedding ring is because gold does not rust, corrode or tarnish. Alloyed gold comes in a choice of various colours, including White, Yellow and Rose. The purity of the gold in the wedding band will depend on the carat you select online. You can identify the carat of the gold by reading the carat stamp on the inner circle of the wedding ring. Temple and Grace Gold wedding bands are made in 9K and 18K. It is important to note that the higher the carat selected, the higher the fine gold content in the ring.
White Gold Wedding Rings
White Gold is an alloy that is created from 24K Yellow Gold and other naturally white precious metals. Like other Gold alloys, White Gold comes in a range of carats and is often plated with rhodium. This makes the White Gold ring look even whiter and shine brighter.
Rose Gold Wedding Bands
Rose gold or pink gold again is an alloy of 24K Yellow Gold. Copper is used in amalgamation with Yellow Gold to create a pinkish hue to create magical rose gold rings.
Platinum Wedding Rings
Platinum is the rarest and one of the most valuable precious metals. Only a small amount of Platinum is produced each year, and this enhances its value. Platinum is hypoallergenic and does not lose its lustre or tarnish with time.
Titanium Wedding Rings
Titanium is a lightweight, hypoallergenic metal that is known for its high level of durability and strength.

Our award-winning international pedigree, combined with a long local history of artisan craftsmanship, set us apart from any other jeweller in New Zealand. Our impeccably high standards and passion for our craft were set long before our award-winning days in London and continue to this day.

Buying jewellery is a very special event, so it's important to us that people enjoy the whole Sutcliffe experience from the minute they walk through the door. Our mission is to create pieces that are both simultaneously beautiful and original. Jewellery that says something special about the neck it adorns or the hand is carrying it. To achieve this, we begin by understanding what our customer desires, before looking back at our sources of inspiration and beginning the design process.
Made To Order, Beautifully Bespoke
Inspired by your love story, each Sutcliffe engagement ring is made just for you. The journey to your perfect ring begins with meeting the jeweller who will design and handcraft your ring. This is a great opportunity to look at some example rings and discuss your story, style and budget.
- Meet the jeweller
- Choose a gemstone
- Chat through designs
- The ring is crafted. This can take a couple of weeks (longer if it is more detailed)
- The gem(s) arrives and is set
- The ring can be personalised, including engraving or additional features
- Pick up your ring in time for a successful proposal.
'By hand' is how each and every one of our engagement rings are created.
Our begins with your first consultation, where you will meet and work directly with the jeweller, and the hands, who will craft your perfect ring. By working closely in consultation with you, we can craft the perfect ring to suit your style and budget.
'By hand' is also how we select the all-important sparkle for your ring. Experts on the ground handpick conflict-free diamonds to meet our needs. This process ensures that nothing will take the shine off your perfect stone.
The same jeweller and skilled pair of hands then lovingly handcrafts it, using time honour artisan techniques and modern design.
Finally, we can work with you to personalise your ring even further, with engraving and unique stones available on request.
Our Minimum Standards
While the 4C's are the universally accepted method of measuring stones, our strict quality standards go well beyond this popular but oversimplified method at Sutcliffe.
Many jewellers choose to place the size of the stone above its potential beauty. We will always recommend considering the cut, colour and clarity of a gemstone over its size. The beauty and sparkle of a gemstone should be the primary considerations, and we work meticulously to source only the very best gemstones available.
Every gem is unique, but some are more unique than others, even from the same grade. This is where Sutcliffe offers you the most outstanding value by ensuring that you are getting the absolute best gemstones possible.
The Metals We Use And Why
18 carat Gold and Platinum are the most commonly used metals in our engagement and wedding rings. Sutcliffe jewellers do not use 9 or 14-carat gold in their jewellery as it is typically an inferior metal to work with. 9-carat gold is only 37% gold! We are also cautious about where we source our metals from. Some metals produced contain alloys and treatments that are actually toxic when worn! Below you'll find our guide to all things metal.
The main distinguishing characteristic between Gold and Platinum is the colour. While Platinum is naturally white, gold is naturally yellow. The choice is one of style. If you prefer a yellow ring, then gold (also termed yellow gold) is the best option for you. However, if you want a white ring, you can opt for either Platinum or white gold.
So what's the difference between yellow and white gold? 18-carat white gold and 18-carat yellow gold have the same gold content and purity, but the alloys in white gold (and the rhodium plating) make it appear white, while the alloys in yellow gold do not.
While Gold and Platinum are similar in price (when measured by weight), Platinum is denser, and so more of it is required to make a ring. Also, platinum rings are usually made from 95% pure platinum, while 18k gold is 75% gold. The price of Gold and Platinum is also heavily influenced by international markets. When designing your ring with us, we can help you understand the cost implications here.
Though both Gold and Platinum are strong and durable precious metals, Platinum is the more durable of the two. For example, the claws holding the centre stone of a platinum engagement ring are less likely to break than those of a gold engagement ring.
Scuffs And Scratches
Despite being stronger and more durable, Platinum is a softer metal (than 18k Gold). This means it will get scratched a little easier than an 18k gold ring would.
However, an important thing to note is that when gold is scratched, the gold is lost, leaving a scratch on the metal. When Platinum is scratched, the Platinum gets moved from one place on the ring to another. This develops something called a patina finish (which looks like an antique or worn ring). This patina finish is often the desired look of platinum lovers.
Because Platinum is denser than gold, platinum rings are heavier to wear. This comes down to personal choice. While some prefer the heavier weight, some find the lightness of gold rings to be more comfortable. If comfortable is a concern, you could opt for one with a comfortable design, like this men's fingerprint wedding band.
Size Vs Quality
These two features will contribute the greatest amount to your ring's final appearance and price, so we take great care to guide you through these crucial decisions.
We will always recommend that you select the stone with the best-cut grade for your budget. The quality and precision of a diamond's cut contribute the most to the overall fire (coloured light reflected from within the stone) and brilliance (white light reflected up through the top of a diamond) of the stone. It is these characteristics that create the overall beauty of the diamond.
At Sutcliffe, it is our goal to find the best diamond for your budget and balance the most important factors. You may choose a larger, lower quality diamond, or you may prefer a smaller, high-quality diamond; it all depends on your desired look and feel of the ring.
Selecting A Combination That Works For You.
When you work with us, our easy and informative process will step you through each decision to create your beautiful and unique engagement ring.
There is a misconception that you must pay a premium for custom engagement jewellery; however, this is simply not the case at Sutcliffe. We work with you and your budget, and by using the gemstones and metal options available to us, we can tailor the perfect ring at a price that suits you. There is no pressure to spend more, and we're always happy to talk through options.

Care & Cleaning
Proper care and handling of your can help it maintain its beauty and sparkle for years to come. We recommend an annual inspection to promote early detection of wear and tear, which may assist in avoiding gem loss, clasp failure, etc.
All jewellery should be treasured and worn with care. Avoid contact with household cleaners or chemicals, chlorine, bleach, salt and chlorinated water, perfumes, and cosmetics. Do not wear when showering or cleaning, and never wear to bed or while participating in sport, as this may cause kinking, snagging or breakage.
Even diamonds, although durable, may chip if impacted.
Pearls should be restrung once a year. Store separately to avoid tangling and knocking together, and use a roll when travelling.

- Resizing / re-tipping of claws/rebuilding bands: Ring too tight or loose, or have you been left a sentimental piece, have sized for a perfectly comfortable fit. Most rings can be made larger or smaller, and please contact us for advice.
- Remodelling: Generally, as rings are made from Gold and Gold, being a relatively soft material, they wear quickly. But worn rings can be repaired by replacing the worn 'shank'. The shank is the part of the ring which wraps around the finger. Of course, having a new shank fitted means you can also get your old ring resized and cleaned.

Silvermoon Wedding and Engagement Rings New Zealand

Whether it's a simple solitaire, a dazzling halo or dreamy morganite, Silvermoon engagement ring designs embody our importance to acknowledge all kinds of love and to celebrate life's most treasured moment.
As much as a story about jewellery, it has also been a story about family and relationships. Our jewellery journey began over 60 years ago with expertise and knowledge passed down generations. Peter and wendy's introduction into jewellery started at a young age. Some of wendy's earliest memories rummaged through her mother's jewellery box in awe of all the previous gemstone pieces that had been passed down to her over generations. Each piece represents a milestone, the feeling of significance that was fostered from sentiment, the true mark of an heirloom that carries meaning. From this, was born a passion that has remained consistent throughout her life. Wendy and peter met during high school, and what began as an after school job to help a family business has now evolved into Silvermoon company. As husband and wife, peter's entrepreneurial spirit and wendy's eye for design represent two facets of a single passion for creating our Silvermoon brand.
60 years of Experience Across
We are incredibly proud of the love that goes into making each piece of precious Silvermoon jewellery and only work with the best craftsmen. There is an incredible wealth of creative talent and craftsmanship in our team, from our founder and designer to our master goldsmiths and our highly skilled jewellers; we have over 60 years of experience in making beautiful pieces.

Frequently Asked Questions When Buying Jewellery
What Is The Difference Between White Gold And Yellow Gold?
Is the difference just the colour, right? The answer is yes and no. Gold comes from the earth, a bright yellow colour; therefore, white gold is naturally yellow too. In order to make the yellow less noticeable white property, alloys are added to gold to help mass the yellow colour. This is where karats of gold come into play.
You have probably heard of 10 karats (kt), 14 kt, 18kt, 22kt, and 24kt gold here in the USA. A karat is a unit of measure of how much gold is in an alloy metal. For example, 14 karat gold is made up of 58.5% gold, while the other 41.5% is made up of alloys. The most common alloys used in gold are copper, zinc, silver, palladium, and nickel. In white gold, the alloys used are typically the white property alloys silver, palladium, and nickel. As mentioned early, these alloys are what make "white gold" white. To learn more about karats of gold, visit.
Can You Stretch Or Size My Ring?
That is a fantastic question. It all depends on the type of ring you have and what metal it is made of. A device can stretch solid plain symmetrical gold and platinum rings that do not have any gemstones. However, it can only be stretched a small amount. If a ring needs to size more than a 1/2 a size up or down, it is best to have the jeweller size it through another sizing process.
If the ring is made of contemporary metal (i.e. tungsten carbide, cobalt, titanium, or stainless steel), the ring cannot be size by a jeweller because of the hardness of the metal. Typically, a jewellery store will just reorder the ring from the manufacturer in the correct size. Depending on the company, this usually takes 2-4 weeks.
Can engagement and fashion rings be sized? Nine times out of ten, the answer is yes. The only reason a ring could not be sized as if the stones in a ring are set in vulnerable spots that decrease the safety of the stones. Sizing a ring with this type of risk could end in breaking, chipping, or popping stones out of the setting.
What Is An Appraisal?
This is a very commonly asked question. The most common appraisals talked about in the jewellery industry are insurance appraisals and estate appraisals.
An insurance appraisal describes a piece of jewellery in written detail and assigns it a replacement value that reflects a current retail value. Insurance appraisals are important to have in case jewellery is lost or stolen. Having your jewellery appraised and insured will help guarantee a fair reimbursement for the piece for any claims you may have to make. Always have your appraisal completed by a certified Gemologist or Diamond Graduate to ensure accuracy of stone type, size, weights, and values.
Estate appraisal also describes in written detail a piece of jewellery. However, it typically assigns a highly discounted value of the piece to reflect more of a wholesale price. This type of appraisal is best when valuing an estate for tax purposes.
What Does It Mean To Have Your Rings Polished Versus Cleaned?
Polishing is a multi-step process that uses a buffing wheel and multiple rouge compounds to remove tiny lines and scratches in a piece of jewellery. When a piece of jewellery has completed the polishing process, it looks brand new. The usual reaction from a customer is, "Oh my gosh, it looks like the day we bought it 10 years ago!"
So, What's A Cleaning?
Cleaning, also known as a quick clean, is a free service Smith's Jewelers offers that utilises an industrial strength ultrasonic and a high-pressured steamer. A quick clean takes no longer than five minutes to complete. Therefore, you can be in and out in seconds and leave with your jewellery looking sparkly and new!
What Is Rhodium Plating?
Great question! Rhodium plating is what makes your white gold rings look bright white and shiny. Since white gold is not naturally white, a jeweller will plate the rhodium piece, after polishing, to give it a bright white shiny finish again.
Since rhodium plating is not permanent, you will see it start to wear off over time. It is recommended that you have your jewellery polished and rhodium-plated once every six to eight months.
