white gold engagement rings
The clean and elegant appearance of white gold makes it an ideal material for an
engagement ring. Its stunning shine perfectly complements the natural sparkle of
a diamond, and for this reason it is one of the most popular and timeless choices.
White gold is versatile enough to suit a wide variety of ring styles, from the clean
lines of contemporary rings to glamorous vintage designs, and pairs excellently
with many different diamond shapes.
Constructed of pure gold with alloy metals, 77 Diamonds uses 18 karat white gold
to craft rings: this provides the optimal balance of strength and an aesthetically-pleasing
appearance as 24 karat gold is too soft to be suitable for setting diamonds. The
white gold is then plated with rhodium which is more of the Platinum family and
gives it a distinctive shining white appearance, as white gold in its natural state
is actually darker and duller. For this reason, it is recommended to have a white
gold engagement ring periodically re-plated when its shine is beginning to fade.
White gold is less prone to surface scratches than metals such as Platinum and Palladium
