Yes, the jewelry is softer and more likely to bend. I have not had any problems with chunkier designs, but wires on my earrings are a problem, they are too thin and don''t close properly. I will have to have them redesigned. The shank of many rings I have seen do not remain round for long, but as long as the ring itself is stable I don''t have a problem with it.Date: 3/7/2007 1:51:05 PM
I have noticed that some of you are having rings made out of 22K gold. I was under the impression that the higher the gold count, the softer the ring. Is that true? How does 22K gold wear as opposed to 14K gold or even 10K gold?
