White gold is an alloy of gold and a white metal such as nickel, manganese or palladium. The purity is expressed in carats as with yellow gold. It’s a beautiful, much more affordable alternative to platinum if you’re looking for a similar strength and shine.
About White Gold
White gold grew in popularity after the stocks of platinum where reserved for manufacture in the middle of the 20th century, and jewellers were banned from using it. This meant that they needed to find an alternative, as platinum was so well-loved, especially for engagement and wedding rings. The jewellers learned that by using metallurgy, mixing metals, they could bleach or change the colour of yellow gold to make it look like a white metal, like platinum. It’s easy to craft with and easy to repair. White gold also takes on a greater brilliance than platinum, which is normally a darker, gun metal grey.

Our white gold is treated with rhodium, meaning a small layer of rhodium is added to the white gold, to give it that specific colour.
