White gold is nearly the same as yellow gold in terms of composition, the primary difference between the two metals is the actual color of them. White gold is essentially mixed with white-colored metals such as nickel, whereas yellow gold is mixed with more yellow metals, such as copper, thus the difference in the color and appearance of each metal.
The cost of white gold and yellow gold is relatively the same as they’re both made of roughly equal parts of gold and other alloy metals. For example, 18K white gold and 18K yellow gold will contain the same percentage of gold, which is generally around 75%. If you are looking for more premium metals with higher durability, you can explore platinum and rhodium, however, white and yellow gold are certainly still considered the best standard for engagement rings and wedding bands.
