What Is White Gold?
White gold is a combination made by including metals, for example, nickel, palladium, and silver to unadulterated gold. White gold may likewise be plated with rhodium to accomplish a pale iridescence. The rhodium covering, be that as it may, in the long run wears away and must be supplanted each one to five years to keep up a splendid white shading. This procedure commonly costs under $50 relying upon the style and complication of the ring.
Like yellow gold, white gold is measured in karats. Well known markings are 18K, 14K, and 9K, and the quality stamp is found inside the ring band. Eighteen-karat white gold is a blend of 75% immaculate gold and 25% white metal, typically palladium or nickel. Nine-karat white gold is a blend of three sections gold to five sections silver or another amalgam metal.
