White gold stands out from other gold options because of its bright white coating that makes it the same color no matter which karat option you choose. But if you also want a balance between luxury and durability, 14K white gold is the way to go. This light domed wedding ring creates a subtle effect that accentuates the silvery-white of the gold.
A comfort-fit design is simple and effective. We add a little extra metal to the inside of the ring to give the interior surface a domed shape. The domed shape is similar to the shape of the outside of a domed wedding band.
The slight dome helps the ring glide over your finger and fit over knuckles. As such, comfort fit is highly recommended for those with bigger knuckles.
With a comfort fit, the size of the ring also fits looser, which means you should verify the correct size before you buy.
A high polish finish reflects light for a shiny and timeless look. This is by far the most common finish for both engagement and wedding rings. It creates a classic glossy surface that is smooth and bright. The drawback to the high polish finish is that scratches are more noticeable, so you may need more regular polishing to keep it looking shiny.
White gold is a gold alloy that is dipped in a rhodium plating, which is what gives it its bright white color. The pure gold is mixed with copper, zinc, and nickel and has a similar durability level as yellow gold.
White gold is prone to scratches like yellow and rose gold, but it can also fade and turn slightly yellow as the rhodium plating wears off. Because of this, a white gold ring will need regular replating as well as polishing to retain its white shine.
The price of white gold depends on the gold content, but it is usually about the same as yellow or rose gold.
