Choosing Between White Gold or Platinum Engagement Rings

White Gold Engagement Rings and Platinum Engagement Rings are almost identical in appearance, but Platinum is more resilient. Platinum is more expensive than Gold, but at present, the Gold price is so high that it is well worth considering Platinum. Platinum is also hypo-allergenic and also doesn't noticeably tarnish.

Gold Engagement Rings

A Karat (kt) is the unit of measurement for gold and represents purity, and should not be confused with carat (ct) which is a unit of weight used for diamonds. 24kt gold is 100% pure gold but it is not really suitable for jewellery as it is too soft. 18kt is the perfect choice. Some cheaper jewellery uses 9kt gold.

Most 1791 Engagement Rings and diamond rings are available in Yellow Gold, White Gold, Rose Gold or Platinum. Please enquire if you need help or simply proceed to our Online Shop.
