With its bright white color and mirror-like luster, white gold has fast become a very popular alternative to yellow gold. Some prefer the silver color of white gold to the color of traditional yellow gold, but may find sterling silver jewelry to be too soft or easily tarnished and the high cost of platinum jewelry to be prohibitive. While gold is a very strong metal, its malleability is what makes it one of the most valuable and widely used precious metals. Often times, white gold is plated with another white metal, such as rhodium, to enhance its appearance. White gold settings can enhance the look of white diamonds and give a more modern look to a traditional jewelry piece.
At Adiamor, we craft our fine jewelry with both 18k and 14k white gold. White gold is an alloy of gold and other white metals such as nickel, silver and palladium. 18k gold is an alloy of 75% pure gold and 25% other materials. This mix of metals helps strengthen the metal for everyday wear. 14k gold is an alloy of 58.3% pure gold and 41.7% other metals.
