Originally, white gold was designed to imitate a more premium metal, platinum, which is a naturally white-colored metal. Traditionally, white gold is an alloy metal that contains around 75% gold and 25% nickel and zinc. If the white gold is 18 karat it is closer to 75% pure gold. It is much more affordable than platinum but harder and more durable than silver. It is also the most versatile metal for bridal and wedding jewelry such as engagement rings and wedding bands.
Why white gold for engagement rings is better:
White gold has always been the perfect choice for engagement rings for many reasons, some of which we have already mentioned, such as its durability and gold content. But those aren’t the only reason we love white gold, there are many more factors to consider when choosing diamond white gold engagement rings vs. other metals, those reasons include:
Versatility in color – the white/silver coloring of white gold is the most versatile look of all the metals and can go with virtually any other metal or even colored gemstones. If you’re looking to integrate gemstones such as blue sapphires, green emeralds, or rubies, white gold is always going to be a wonderful option for this!
Ease of Resizing – If you ever needed to resize or modify your engagement ring, white gold is a great metal for this as it has no complications for customization.
Affordable Repair – As easy as it is to repair a white gold ring, it’s even easier to repair one. The repair cost for a white gold engagement ring is more affordable than the repair cost of a platinum ring, although the difference is not large, every penny counts when you’re trying to save up for that five-year upgrade, right?
