My boyfriend has talked with a local mom & pop place about making a ring with a pave setting. They mentioned that they could make it with 19k gold so that it won’t need rhodium plated, will maintain its color, and hold up well. I have never heard of 19k so I looked it up and it sounds like it would be a good option. We have gone to a few jewelry stores since and asked about 19k and they said that the first jeweler was lying, that it would need rhodium plated and that it would be a very soft ring that would damage easily. Does anyone know more about 19k? Does anyone have a 19k ring and can tell me their experience?
The mom & pop store does not offer a warranty as thats part of the way they keep their costs down but said they would provide free cleaning. Is a warranty a huge deal? We will get insurance on the ring in case anything major happens. Thanks
