    Default white gold

    Gold Coast, taught us that white gold is an alloy of gold mixed with white metals such as nickel, silver, and palladium. Like yellow gold, white gold glitters in a variety of carats: 18ct, 14ct, or 9ct.

    Eighteen-carat white gold consists of 75% gold mixed with 25% white metals. New white gold rings are usually coated with a hard protective finish of rhodium, a silver-white metal like platinum. To keep a white gold ring looking its best, Gillett's recommends an annual replating of rhodium, since the coating wears off over time.

    Platinum, an entirely different element than gold, is a white metal that is denser, heavier, and longer-wearing than gold. It's usually used in almost pure form and does not require a protective coating. Platinum is quite expensive, a platinum ring is perhaps twice the price of a similar ring made in white gold.



    variations of the alloy


    variations of the alloy known as white gold: 9-carat white gold consists of 3 parts gold to 5 parts silver, 18-carat is made with palladium. Adding nickel to a white gold/silver alloy can produce good color and hardness, but nickel is allergenic, and produces skin reactions in approximately 20% of the population.
