White Gold Wedding Rings

Combining the traditional quality of 'gold' and the fashionable look of 'silver' is the white-gold wedding ring. This ring metal is a popular choice for a wedding ring metal over other white metals, as it is less expensive than platinum and not as fragile as silver.

About White Gold Wedding Rings

  • White gold is an alloy of gold and at least one white metal such as nickel, manganese or palladium.
  • As with yellow gold, the purity of white gold is measure in karats.
  • The term 'white gold' is used very loosely in the jewelry making industry as it covers a wide spectrum of colors that can even include pale yellow or pale rose gold.
  • 'Off-whites' are often hidden by rhodium plating which not only protects the ring, but helps to prevent skin reactions to the nickel in the alloy.

Taking Care of White Gold

  • Your white gold wedding rings will have been rhodium plated when you first bought them. And over time, it's quite usual that white-gold wedding rings will start to look a bit 'yellow' around the edges - particularly on the band that goes around the finger - as the rhodium plating starts to wear off. If you have sensitive skin, you may also notice that you are getting a mild skin irritation on your ring finger - this is the nickel irritating your skin.
  • Rather than have your ring look like a yellowing artefact of your wedding day, it's easy enough to have your ring look its original best. Simply take your ring to a jeweler and get the rhodium re-plated. Some online jewelers offer this service too which is very convenient and you can avoid the 'hard sell' to trade in your white-gold ring for another (more expensive) metal.
  • Take off your ring and store it safely when you are doing heavy work or using chemicals - as with all jewelry, the more care you take of it, the longer it will last.
