White or yellow gold

Gold has always been a popular metal for jewelry, especially for wedding and engagement rings. Both white or yellow gold have a classic look that will never fade. In the recent years there hasn’t been much of a debate between yellow and white gold, as the popular choice has been white gold. However, many people do not know what the difference is between the two other than, of course, their color.

There are two things to consider when shopping for gold; karat and colour. The karat indicates the proportion of gold to other metals such as nickel, manganese, copper and zinc. Pure gold is known as 24 karat and is made up 100% of gold. The natural colour of gold is yellow, but you can now find white, rose, red and other coloured gold.

The following are the pros of white and yellow gold:yellow gold vs white gold band
