What is MOHS SCALE and what does that have to do with rings?
The Mohs Scale of mineral hardness is a method of measuring the strength of the ring. The higher the number on the Mohs Scale, the stronger the ring, thus it is less likely to bend or scratch, whereas a metal such as gold, which might have a number of 3 on a Mohs Scale, this means it can bend or scratch more easily than, for example, a Mohs Scale titanium ring with a number of 6. Check the table below for a list of common metals used in jewellery production with their corresponding Mohs scale numbers:
|Gold||2.5 – 3|
|Silver||2.5 – 3|
|Platinum||4 – 4.5|
