White gold rings for women offer a great alternative to silver and gold. White gold is beautiful and is not as garish as yellow gold and not as bright as silver. Many people believe that white gold is some rare precious metal but this is not the case. White gold rings are generally made of yellow gold and then dipped in a white gold formula. Reason being that white gold is very soft and not strong enough to make in to a piece of jewellery. Therefore these rings offer the beauty of white gold with the strength of yellow gold.
White gold rings for women can be found in nearly every jewellery store as white gold has grown greatly in popularity over the last decade. Often referred to as the rich man’s silver or the poor man’s platinum, white gold is perfect for those of you who are not a fan of silver or gold and are looking for an alternative for your engagement or wedding ring. White gold is generally hard wearing and durable but it is important to ask your jeweller how many layers of white gold are on the ring that you are purchasing. This is because more layers mean a harder wearing ring and will require less upkeep over the years.
For those of you have inherited rings or have an old ring that you do not like wearing because you do not like yellow gold, then why not get it dipped in white gold and transform an old ring in to your new favourite accessory. This can be done by any jeweller and is generally not too expensive. The upkeep of the rings is simple too as with a little polishing your rings will look brand new.
