i was told the higher the k for gold the weaker it is. my e ring is made with 10k. it doesnt bother me because i got more rock on it. and its cheaper. but i also have insurance incase my stone falls out or loosens.

@MrsSmith13:  I was told specifically by the jeweller that you shouldn’t go any higher than 10k for your wedding/ering bands because it is significantly weaker and is more likely to get dinged and damaged.

My rings are all 14k, but 10k is stronger because there is less gold in the alloy.  Gold is an incredibly soft metal.

@MrsSmith13:  14k is still sturdy and you dont have to take it off for daily activities. All of my white gold is 14k and i wear them constantly

10k is fine for everyday wear.  I have a 21k RHR ring that I’ve been wearing daily for 6 years now and it’s fine.  Unless you’re super hard on your rings and rocking climbing with them, anything should be ok.

I got my husband a 10K wedding band because he’s very hard on things.  I did get a satin finish on it so it wouldn’t show scratches and what-not so much.

He wears it 24 hours/day, 7 days/week. 🙂
