White Gold Solitaire Rings

About Our White Gold Solitaire Rings

Our collection of white gold solitaire rings are designed by our Hatton Garden jewellers with ever-lasting style in mind. Simple and uncomplicated in nature, these sublime engagement rings crafted in white gold are created with skill and passion, using the finest metal alloys to create a strong and lustrous metal. White gold solitaire rings are plated in rhodium for a bright and silvery finish, and typically require re-plating every few years or so.

Expertly Crafted in 18K White Gold

As with every Queensmith ring, we craft each 18K white gold solitaire engagement ring with extreme care, devotion and concentrated attention to the finest details. Solitaire rings are simple and refined by nature, but our goldsmiths still pore over the minutiae to ensure a ring that endures both time and style.

What Is White Gold?

White gold is a precious alloy metal used to create fine jewellery. The metals used to create 18k white gold are 75% pure gold and 25% silver, nickel or palladium which is then plated with rhodium, which adds a bright, silvery finish similar to platinum. White gold was first used for fine jewellery and engagement rings in the 20th century, becoming popular during the 1920s and 30s Art Deco period. White gold remains the perfect metal choice for engagement rings for many, white others prefer the similar appearance and lower maintenance of platinum.

What's The Difference Between White Gold And Platinum?

White gold is an alloy created with pure gold and other metals that give it its silver-tone, whereas platinum is a naturally occurring white metal. The difference in appearance is minimal, with white gold being a tiny bit off-white compared to platinum. This is thanks to the rhodium plating of white gold: without rhodium plating, white gold is a slightly buttery-yellow tone, and over time the rhodium wears away and needs replacing. White gold therefore requires re-plating every few years or so, whereas platinum will remain bright and silvery forever.

What's The Difference Between White Gold And Silver?

While white gold and silver may look similar at first glance, the two metals actually differ quite significantly - the main difference being that white gold is suitable for fine jewellery and engagement rings, whereas silver is far too soft. White gold is a strong and durable metal, less prone to scratches and abrasion.
