Both white gold and platinum are popular choices for jewellery, especially engagement rings.
White gold is a blend of gold with other white metals like silver and palladium. It’s often coated with rhodium to give it a bright white look. It’s more affordable than platinum and gives the same luxurious feel.
Platinum is a naturally white metal, so it will retain its colour forever. It is more durable and less prone to scratching compared to white gold. However, platinum is heavier and more expensive.
