What is one of the biggest advantages of a white gold ring?
“A white gold engagement ring is the choice of many modern couples today, and rightfully so. White gold has the same look as platinum but is better priced, making it a budget-friendly and stylish option that pairs well with all attires worn. A white gold ring would match perfectly with an evening gown, a pair of denim, or even beachwear, for that matter!”

Should I select a 14-karat or 18-karat white gold ring?
Friendly Diamonds recommend a 14k white gold ring because it is a more durable and sturdy metal. The strength and resilience of a 14-karat ring outweigh that of an 18-karat. 14-karat gold is also more affordable than 18-karat gold, making it a budget-friendly choice.
