The Kaisilver Resource

Some Buyer Testimonials

Vol: 017    Date: 10 January 2013


Tough times for the gems and jewelry sector and tough times for lovers of gemstones and jewelry. Subdued economies and historically high gold prices have dampened spirits. Having said that, we do observe some silver linings to these gloomy clouds. The highend silver jewelry sector has made impressive progress. Gems that seemed to have been reserved for gold jewelry are today, being set in fine sterling silver jewelry. The development of alternate metals has also made an impact on the markets. Things should be continuing in this direction for at least a decade.

On the gemstone front, interesting changes are visible too. Lab created and other imitation gems seem to be seeing good sales. The touchy issue of gemstone treatments is as active as ever. Gem manufacturers are busy trying to increase the perceived value of gems by, applying treatments to enhance the appearance of gems. The age old controversy related to lack of complete disclosure to the buyer, still holds importance. While we hoped to see many more gem and jewelry resource make concious efforts to educate gem and jewelry buyers, the big names seem to be more keen on playing on the confusion and lack of knowledge of innocent buyers.

Plating Silver Jewelry, The Mircon Thickness Story 

Most silver jewelry buyers are aware that all silver jewelry will tarnish after a while. Jewelry manufacturers make little effort to be clear about the options and magical features that  they offer, many of these claim to be an anti-tarnish treatment for silver jewelry. Buyers are told that plating silver jewelry with gold, rhodium or platinum can protect the silver from tarnishing. The complete truth is that, such plating will hold back tarnish as long as the plating lasts and the plating will not last forever.

Silver jewelry lovers who love the metal might prefer to leave their jewelry unplated, this is because they wish to wear jewelry with a typical silver appearance. On the other hand, silver jewelry buyers who request for plating might wish to give a more extravagant to the silver jewels. How long the plating on silver jewelry will last is a tough equation to resolve. Climatic factors, usage environment, water composition, individual sweat composition, time etc will all work to decide how quickly or slowly the plating on silver jewelry will wear off.

One important factor that will determine how long the plating will last is the thickness of the plating. We wish it was easy to explain this but, to be honest we need to be precise in providing these details. Most jewelry manufacturers use what is referred to as 'quick dip' plating or 'flash' plating. Generally used for gold plating silver or brass, this method gives a very low deposit of gold on the surface of the silver. The jewel to be plated is dipped in the solution and quickly taken out. Since the gold deposited is low, the cost of this type of gold plating is also low. Higher quality gold, rhodium or platinum platings on silver or other metals are measured in microns. Just to give you a rough estimate, a 1 micron gold plating on a jewel would deposit around 4 to 5 times more gold, as compared to a flash plating done on the same jewel. One or two micron platings are generally preferred when some durability of plating is required on silver jewelry. The price of micron plating is much more than that for flash plating. It is not easy to estimate how long micron plating will last as it depends on a number of factors. How what we can surely say is that, the thicker the plating the longer it would last.

You can technically get a silver ring replated when the original plating wears off but, reality is a bit more deep. Not all jewelers would be willing to do the replating for you. The cost can sometimes be quite high, as the jeweler wants to make money on the plating process. In some cases it might be required to take off the gems, from the mounting before the plating is done. The gemstones will then have to be reset after the plating is done.

The above information should give you enough education to understand the concept of plating silver jewelry and also whether, it is suitable for you. The secret of getting good looking and longlasting silver jewelry, is to choose designs that have that classic aura around them. These jewels look amazing in silver and actually enhance their appearance when they tarnish a bit. We always suggest that you actually feel proud of your sterling silver jewels and that, there is no reason to be apologetic for not wearing gold.

Sapphire Diamond Ring, Affordable Luxury 

Diamond Sapphire Ring RG237

The RG237 sapphire diamond looks showcases luxury and extravagance, fortunately this jewel has a lavish appearance that goes far beyond it's price. It is never easy to design jewelry for a market that is weathered by high gold prices and limping world economies.  Our talented desired team worked under challenges that tested their creativity to the limits. What we deliver here is a gorgeous silver or gold, sapphire ring with natural diamonds. While there is indeed a growing demand for silver sapphire rings, this jewel is moderately priced in gold or sterling silver. There are some fine options that we have packed into this sapphire diamond ring. You can pick these according to your budget. Rest assured that leaving out any of those options will not make your ring appear like a run down version of the same ring with all options included. For example, the ring is shown here with 5 round blue sapphire gems this obviously means that, the gems and diamonds do not go all around the band. But if your budget permits, you could request for the design variation where the sapphires and diamonds in the ring are set all around the ring. While this sapphire ring is not as expensive as you would expect sapphire diamond wedding bands to be, the ring is perfectly suited for a sapphire wedding or engagement ring. Talking about a sapphire diamond band, the regular version of this ring has a band that tapers it's width towards the back of the ring. You can however make a specific request for a uniform band width when ordering your ring. Like always, you will be assured of the same quality of design, craftsmanship and gems for the gold or silver ring. The gemstones in your ring can be selected by you. This means that you can retain the same dimensions and appearance of this sapphire and diamond ring but choose other gems like, rubies, tanzanite, aquamarine, emeralds, diamonds, white sapphires, pink sapphires, tourmaline etc. Get to know more about this tremendous ring, read the complete report here.


Tradition Lives On, The Yin Yang Ring 

Mens Yin Yang Ring MAN76.

An interesting trend in mens jewelry has been active for a very long time. Men are more likely to wear jewelry with special meaning and significance as compared to ladies. The yin yang ring is a good example of this, the jewel incorporates the ancient Chinese symbol. The MAN76 mens yin yang ring might be very popular but, it is not necessary for a yin yang ring to be as intricate and lavish as this jewel. This is a custom yin yang ring in gold or silver, all the elements of the yin yang including the white and black portions and the white and black dots are made from natural stones. You might be surprised to know that this yin yang ring, as a white diamond for the white spot and a black diamond for the black spot. Something that we have always maintained about jewelry with meaning is that, price and complexity are not relevant. You could wear a simple silver yin yang ring with the symbol etched into the metal. You might have noticed that an increasing number of men today wear stainless steel rings, with the yin yang symbol lasered or sand blasted on the surface of the metal. The yin yang symbol has a terrific meaning and is not restricted to any particular religion or nation today. The interpretation of the yin yang symbol can be used to make constructive changes in our life no matter, who we are, what we do and where we stay. If you need easy of maintanence and economy, a yin yang ring without any gemstone would be easier to look after. Such a ring would also not have the gem cost component on it's price tag. While you must read the amazing details of the yin yang and learn about the MAN76 ring here, keep in mind that we can custom make a yin yang ring for you in gold or silver with the design of your choice.
