Our Gold and Gems
Only the best…
Ro Copenhagen jewellery is crafted by red or white gold in exclusively 18kt. We take pride in always choosing gold of highest quality as it extends the lifetime of the jewel and thereby your joy. It gives the jewels the most beautiful colours. With time, it gives the jewels a unique patina. And it suits the jewels precious designs with their selected cuts and fine cut diamonds and gems.
The purest gold
Carat is a unit of specifying gold’s purity – also known as millesimal fineness. The maximum number of carats in gold is 24kt. It is the purest gold and rarely used for jewellery as it gets soft and sensitive to the slightest pressure. Gold jewellery is consequently crafted by 75 percent gold as a maximum – a mixture known as 18kt. When mixed with another metal to improve the hardness of the gold, for example, it is a process called alloy. Different alloys can give the gold different colours, such as red and white. At Ro Copenhagen, our jewellery in 18kt red gold is made of 750 ‰ gold and 250 ‰ cobber, and our jewellery in 18kt white gold is made of 750 ‰ gold and 250 ‰ palladium.
The most precious gems
Gems are natural wonders of the world. Created deep below earth’s surface where chemistry, pressure and temperature influences the differences, variations and quality of these precious gems. In every jewel in the Ro Copenhagen collections, there has been an intense search for the finest gem in the precise right colour. When they are cut, the gems’ true beauty shows – both from within and without.
The finest diamonds
The sparkling, gleaming diamonds are created in the dark, 200 km below the surface. Here, under enormous constant pressure and intense heat, carbon atoms crystallize and turn into diamonds. Their creation takes an eternity, why they are rare and highly valued. Though, there is a difference between diamonds, and they are valued based on the four C’s: Carat – Color – Clarity – Cut. At Ro Copenhagen, we use some of the finest diamonds, all of whom are carefully selected (Top Wesselton-VS).
All gems in Ro Copenhagen jewellery are of natural origin, and the diamonds are purchased conflict-free from official suppliers in accordance with UN resolutions.
