For a Traditional Smooth Band, the band is polished and smooth, like most jewelry.

For a Textured Band, the band has a distinctive look that helps keep your ring from showing wear.

For an Antique Finish, the finish is the black detailing applied to your jewelry.

For a Satin/Natural Finish, the finish enhances the luster of your jewelry.

Jostens offers a variety of metal choices including white and yellow gold, Silver Elite®, Solaris Elite®, Lustrium® and Questra.


Jostens offers gold in 2 colors and 3 karat qualities:

  • Yellow Gold - Because of its durability and lasting value over time, gold is a wise investment. Gold has been the standard for jewelry for over 4000 years.
  • White Gold - Has the same lasting qualities and value as yellow gold, but different metal.
  • Metal Purities 
    • 18K: 75% pure gold, 25% metal allow.
    • 14K: 58.5% pure gold, 41.5% metal allow.
    • 10K: 41.7% pure gold, 58.3% metal allow.

A non-precious metal alloy that is silver in color. It is a hard metal and fairly durable, but does not have the same value and characteristics as gold and platinum. Lustrium® will react to oxygen and thus may require additional care and cleaning.

Yellow Lustrium®

Same characteristics as Lustrium®, but yellow in color because of coating with 23 karat yellow gold.

*Nickel is included in the following metal mixes: Lustrium®, Yellow Lustrium®, and all white gold.
