A white gold engagement ring says 'you are special' to the woman concerned. It shows them that you went out of your way to choose something out of the ordinary especially for her. Of course this is only half the story. Once you have decided to buy a white gold engagement ring, you need to take her personal preferences and style into account, so it is worth taking some time to notice the type of jewelry that she normally wears. If she normally wears yellow gold, then you may have to do a bit of hinting to find out if she would like a white gold ring. Once you decide on the type of ring, it is also wise to find out her ring size. If you do this, it means that she can wear her ring straight away, rather than wait for it to be altered to fit her finger.
If you have decided that you want a 'white' ring, rather than yellow gold, and you still need some persuading over whether to buy a white gold engagement ring or a platinum ring, you may like to take the following points into consideration.
- A white gold engagement rings provides a perfect backdrop and setting for any precious stone. It can be less over powering than yellow gold, therefore showing off the stone to more effect. Remember, the stone is the main star of the ring, the setting provides a supporting role.
- If cost is an issue, bear in mind that white gold is usually far less expensive than platinum.
- A white gold engagement ring will keep its good looks longer than platinum. This is because it is much harder wearing. It will tarnish less and so keep it shine. White gold will also keep the setting safer than a platinum setting will as the prongs are stronger.
- White gold will show off your precious stone setting without over powering it.
However, for all its good properties, you need to be sure that a white gold engagement ring will be happily received, rather than buying a yellow gold ring. Only when you are sure of this, should you go and buy your ring.
