What is the Loop Travel Ring made of?
The Loop Travel Ring is made of sterling silver and is vermeil gold plated to replicate yellow or white metal of your Loop Engagement Ring. Currently, we aren’t able to do vermeil plating in rose gold, so for qualifying Loop Engagement Ring orders with rose gold, we will reach out and ask if you would prefer a ring to be plated to look like white or yellow gold ring. All the stones that are in the Travel Ring are cubic zirconia and will match the color of your Loop Engagement Ring diamond (white, black or champagne).
What is vermeil?
For Loop Travel Rings that are replicating yellow gold, the sterling silver ring is plated with a thick layer of gold, this style of plating is called vermeil. The primary difference between vermeil plating and other unspecified gold-plated jewelry is the thickness of the gold layer, vermeil is at least 2.5 microns of plating. The thicker layer of gold will keep the Travel Ring from tarnishing longer so that you have a longer lasting Travel Ring.
How similar are cubic zirconia to diamonds?
Cubic zirconia (CZ) is very similar in appearance to natural diamonds. These stones are diamond simulants and do the job in giving an accurate sense of what Loop Engagement Rings look like. The CZ are cut to appear the same as the carat weight of your Loop Engagement Ring.
Will my Travel Ring have my personalization?
Your Travel Ring will not have any of personalization that your Loop Engagement Ring does.
It’s a stand in to look like your engagement ring, but isn’t the real thing, so we’re not going to add the personalization on the inside of the band.
What is my white gold replica Travel Ring plated with?
Loop Travel Rings that are replicating white gold or platinum are plated with rhodium - the same plating that our Loop Engagement white gold rings have, so that they have the same shine as your Loop Engagement Ring.
What is my yellow gold replica Travel Ring plated with?
Travel Rings that are replicating yellow gold are plated with yellow gold, so that it has the same look as your Loop Engagement Ring.
Why can’t I get my replica Travel Ring plated in rose gold?
Currently, we aren’t able to offer the Travel Ring with rose gold vermeil due to technical issues regarding getting the right “rose gold” color for our small quantity made-to-order engagement rings. We are working on a solution and hope to offer rose gold vermeil for our Travel Rings soon! If you do order a qualifying rose gold Loop Engagement Ring our Diamond Concierge will reach out to you and ask for your preference for a white or yellow gold Travel Ring.
Is there a hypo-allergenic/non-nickel option for the Travel Ring?
Right now we don’t have a non-nickel option for the Travel Rings. We are working on to expand our options so that we have a non-nickel Travel Ring option.
