Hand Made White Gold Wedding Bands
White gold wedding rings like all wedding bands are worn on the left-hand finger next to the pinky finger to indicate the wearer is married. The placement on this finger goes back in time and was believed this finger had the biggest vain that let directly to the heart. White Gold wedding rings are commonly alloyed in 18ct White gold or 9ct White gold. The 18ct White gold wedding band is the purest of all metals due to the high purity of the metal & density. It consists of 75% pure gold, ours alloyed with Palladium. It is a very hard wearing metal that matches yellow and rose gold engagement rings.
White Gold Wedding Rings – The most popular choice
9ct White gold consists of 37.5% pure gold which is half that of 18ct White gold. 9ct White gold has a large amount of Palladium which makes it a soft metal in comparison to 18ct White gold. The majority of white gold wedding bands are 18ct due to them being more durable, especially when placing Diamonds or gemstones in them. My customers most popular wedding ring choice is definitely the 18ct White gold. A lot of people ask me, as a goldsmith, which is the preferred metal? I much prefer to sell 18ct White than 9ct White due to its durability. I prefer people don’t encounter unnecessary early wear & tear based on my recommendation.
