Is White Gold More Expensive Than Yellow Gold?
White is associated with friendship, new beginnings, and purity. It represents your commitment to each other as you start out on your new journey as husband and wife.
White gold is, essentially, yellow gold mixed with white metals. These can include nickel, palladium, and magnesium. The shine and lustre are gained by plating the gold with rhodium.
When it comes to the price of gold, irrespective of its colour, it’s based on the amount of pure gold in the alloy. Gold is measured in carats, with pure gold containing 24 carats. Therefore, the higher the number of carats, the more expensive the gold, whether this is white, yellow or rose gold.
White gold wedding rings can sometimes cost a little more, due to the rhodium plating: rhodium is a very rare and expensive metal. Another factor is the popularity white gold has gained, it can be in high demand and attract a higher cost price.
