If you prefer the cooler tones, the sparkle of diamonds or sapphires set into a white metal, you may be pondering what the key differences are between white gold, platinum and palladium.
Platinum vs Palladium
Which Metal is Better for a Wedding or Engagement Ring
- The most defining issue for most people in whether to choose platinum vs. palladium is that palladium is half the price of platinum.
18K White Gold vs 14K White Gold
- If you want white gold, we recommend the 14K white which has more alloy to make it whiter and more durable. Plus, the 14K white is less expensive.
Silver vs Stainless Steel
- Both silver and stainless steel are budget friendly alternatives to gold or platinum. Both white metals hold up over years, though stainless steel rings are much more durable than silver.
Compare Hardness of White Metals
- Those who are hard on their wedding rings would benefit from choosing from the toughest metals: stainless steel, palladium, platinum and 14K white gold.
