White gold jewelry is a popular choice. Furthermore, white gold is an excellent choice for diamonds. It is frequently used in bridal jewelry. In comparison to yellow gold, diamonds look more white when placed in white gold.
White gold jewelry was invented in the 19th century. At that time, platinum was the most popular metal. It is a cost-effective alternative to platinum. It was widely used in engagement rings and jewelry because it was affordable.
White gold is an alloy of yellow gold and another white metal. The white appearance of the metal is created by adding nickel, silver, or palladium. Additionally, white gold is measured in karat weight like traditional gold. The higher the karat weight, the purer the gold. For instance, 24 karat gold is purer than 14 karat gold. This results in slightly softer metal.
