What exactly is White Gold ?

White gold is one of the most famous alloys of gold that is used worldwide for various purposes, and so in the making of jewellry. It attracts it with its beauty and permanence, and although it resembles silver, it differs considerably from it. In all gold jewellery, pure gold has to be mixed with harder metals for added durability and strength. On its own, pure gold is a very soft metal. Without the harder alloy metals keeping it rigid, pure gold would easily bend out of shape.

All 9K gold jewellery items contain 37.5% pure gold, while 18K gold items contain 75% pure gold – regardless of the gold colour. The bigger the overall karat weight, the larger amount of gold is present.

White gold and silver are white metals and can often be thought of because they are very similar. However, their composition is significantly different and white gold is significantly higher quality than silver. White gold represents the alloy of pure gold and metal that gives white to this alloy. These are mainly white metals such as nickel, palladium or others. Depending on the metals used for making these alloys and depending on how many of these metals are used, they will depend on the properties of the alloy itself.
