Frequently Asked Question - FAQ's

I NEED to buy my partner an engagement ring AND a wedding band? Do we need to use diamonds? What is with all this tradition, anyway?

The best part about life is that you can make your own rules.  No, you don’t NEED to have a diamond engagement ring, or have matching wedding bands.  The best person to discuss that with is your partner.  We have had couples skip the engagement ring and go straight to the wedding bands, or use the engagement ring AS the wedding band, or some partners don’t have a wedding band at all because of their job or because they just can’t/don’t like to wear jewelry.  Rings are a symbolic gesture of commitment and a talisman of love, so whatever best represents the two of you as a couple is what you should choose.  We cater to the non-traditional/alternative and would love to hear how you and your partner will be expressing that in your ring choices.
Diamonds are symbolic to Engagement Rings, Wedding Ring, Bridal set, Promise Rings. But the traditional concept has changed. Today you have far more choices and a lot of them are within an affordable budget. Some Samples are -
  • Gemstone Engagement Rings
  • Ruby Engagement Rings
  • Emerald Engagement Rings
  • Sapphire Engagement Rings
  • Morganite Engagement Rings
  • Moissanite Engagement Rings
  • Black Diamond Engagement Rings
All these Engagement Rings can be then customized with a matching bands.

Do you buy old jewelry/gold? Can you melt down my old rings/chains/cuff-links to make my new ring?

Sorry, no.  We would not be able to properly assess the value of your pieces. We also do not take old gold for credit at this time, nor do we use old gold to remake new pieces.

How can I get my partner’s ring size without them knowing about it? It’s supposed to be a surprise!

Please get her/him sized accurately (for free!) by a reputable jeweler. All jewelers across the country can help with this process. Other option is the use a chart available online.

Gold Plating Products

Gold Plated jewelry is the best option for wearers who are love gold jewelry but need to stay in a budget. It gives the impression of luxury while not causing you to break the bank every time you see a cute, trendy ring, bracelet or necklace. Gold plated jewelry is made by using electricity or chemicals to deposit and bond a very thin layer of gold over another metal. This process creates a layer as thin as 1/1000 to 3/1000 of an inch of gold over a more affordable metal, usually silver, brass or copper. All our jewelry is made with Solid Sterling Silver.

The downside of gold plating is that the gold layer fades and tarnishes over time. The reason being that molecules of the base metals slowly transfer into the thin layer of gold causing it to break down

The gold surface can break down or tarnish with normal wear and tear.

To decrease the chances of wearing out, here are easy ways on keeping the luster of your gold plated jewelry. As it is a thin layer of gold, extra care should be taken to maximize its lifespan.

  • Do not spray on perfume or other sprays while wearing your gold plated jewelry. Wear your jewelry after you have sprayed on your favorite perfume so that chemicals on the spray or perfume does not interact with your jewelry’s metal.
  • Wait until your lotion or cream is dry or has been absorbed by your skin before you wear your gold plated ring, bracelet or necklace.
  • Substances like oil, nail polish, nail polish remover, chlorine, perfume and the like may react with metal/plated jewelry and will cause it to tarnish easily. This also goes with sweat, so make sure you don’t forget to remove your gold plated jewelry when you exercise or anything that would require heavy physical work, and also when swimming.
  • Every after use, clean your plated jewelry with a cotton ball or a very soft cloth to remove any dust and dirt it has acquired. Gently rubbing the surface of your gold plated jewelry using a soft jewelry cloth also helps restore shine.
  • If your jewelry needs more cleaning you may clean it with warm, soapy water. Soak it for a few minutes and you may clean it with a soft brush. Stay away from jewelry cleaners and antibacterial soaps which may have certain components that will just make your gold plated jewelry tarnish more quickly.


We do not and cannot guarantee how long the Gold Plating will last. If does happen that the gold plating fades away over time and you wish to get it plated again, we offer Gold Plating service for our customers only. There will be a nominal discounted charge for plating service. Please chat with us or email us at customersupport@agemz.com for further queries.
