In 2019 red (gold) is dead, white’s alright but yellow is where its at. In 2020 we think there’ll be a tilt towards white metals especially platinum. Platinum is normally the most expensive of the precious metals and with its heavy feel and hard wear its the best for every day wear, however in 2019 the price slumped the a 3 year low as gold remains high and palladium hits the roof. We predict this will filter into the bridal market in 2020 as people take advantge of metal prices
