white gold | ˈ(h)wīt gōld
An alloy made of gold mixed with nickel sometimes also containing palladium or zinc
White gold is often plated with rhodium to give a silvery look. Unplated white gold is a light champagne color. White gold pieces may require relating over time to maintain a sharp white look, but overall, pieces created in 14k and 18k white gold are durable and hold gemstones securely.
