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 so in turn exudes longevity We offer a selection of breathtaking engagement rings in 18k white gold. If you have a specific design in mind, we will be delighted to hand-craft a bespoke ring to your requirements.Each white gold engagement ring is produced based on your selected diamond – carat, colour, clarity and cut of which there are over 300,000 diamonds to choose from.
