Is White Gold or Platinum Better?
The choice between white gold and platinum comes down to your personal preference and also the design of ring you choose. Both are prestigious and timeless and each has its own uniqueness.
White gold will hold its shine longer. However, it is, essentially, yellow gold alloyed with other metals to change the colour and give it strength. It’s then plated in rare white metal, rhodium, to give lustre. It might need re-plating every few years to restore this white lustre.
Platinum is naturally white and is denser and more rare than gold. It will feel heavier and more substantial and will wear well. Nevertheless, it might need polishing more often to keep its shine. Platinum is malleable and develops tiny bumps and ridges in the surface, which lend to its patina.
Either metal can be used to create an heirloom engagement ring that will be treasured for years to come. One of the main differences between the two is cost. Platinum is a purer metal and, hence, more expensive.
