Many are aware of the different precious metals – silver, gold, platinum. White gold is another particularly popular choice of metal for jewellery, but what exactly is it? How is it made? And how does it differ from yellow gold? •
White gold is an alloy of gold. It is made up of pure gold, mixed with alloy metals that have a silvery-white colour, such as palladium and silver
Apart from the alloys mixed in with the pure gold for added strength and durability, white gold jewellery is additionally coated in a precious metal known as rhodium. Rhodium comes from the same metal family as platinum. It adds further strength and durability, and importantly, a really lustrous white surface sheen – making it the ideal metal to coat and protect jewellery.
WHY DOES WHITE GOLD EVENTUALLY START TO LOOK LIKE YELLOW GOLD?
Over time, the rhodium coating becomes worn, revealing the yellow gold colour underneath
Is this normal? Yes. Eventually, all white gold jewellery begins to show yellow gold colour. How quickly this happens depends on many factors such as the pH level of your skin, and what toiletries or household chemicals the jewellery comes into contact with. Even environmental factors, like how much pollution there is in your area, can influence how quickly the yellow gold begins to show through!
What can be done about it? This can be resolved easily by getting the jewellery re-coated with rhodium every so often
Is white gold real gold?
Yes. Even though it contains alloy metals, white gold is made from real, pure gold. You’ll be able to verify that your white gold jewellery contains real gold by looking at its hallmark
👍 It is the perfect choice for those who prefer a white, silvery appearance over yellow gold.
Its neutral colour and durability makes it the perfect setting for all gemstones. It looks beautiful and classic, suited to all outfits and events
👎🏽 As white gold is made from a mix of pure yellow gold with alloys and coated in rhodium, overtime it will need recoating to maintain its colour

Whether white gold is for you is ultimately a personal choice #weddingrings#avriljewelry#avriljewelrydiscourse#whitegold
