Diamond & White Gold Rings

Diamonds set in white gold rings offer a combination of both durability and affordability. White gold is less expensive than platinum, but still gives off a beautiful, noble look. It is also much more durable than, for example, sterling silver, which is softer and wears away faster.

Thanks to these aspects, diamonds set in white gold rings have been popular for quite some time and are made available in many different styles. The most modern white gold rings have a rhodium coating, which gives the ring a little more luster and allows for more light to be reflected into the diamond, boosting its fire and scintillation.

To get white gold, pure yellow gold is usually mixed with a white metal like nickel of palladium. Nickel is a metal that is far less expensive than palladium and the like, but some people are allergic to it. However, for those who are not allergic, white gold containing nickel offers a less expensive alternative to white gold containing palladium.


Quick Facts

  • Although the rhodium plating over the white gold is extremely hard, it will eventually wear off, yet jewelers can re-plate the ring

  • Vintage diamond and white gold rings often don’t have a rhodium coating and may look less shiny as a result of this, while they are just as precious
  • White gold is an excellent choice to combine with diamonds with a higher clarity rating
