White Gold Diamond Rings

The most popular gold alloy is white gold. In order to achieve this color tone silver and palladium is used to neutralize the original color shade. Back in the days nickel was used as well, however its use is forbidden by EU laws today due to its potential for allergic reactions. In addition white golden rings are rhodanized which is a means of ennoblement to finish and round up the desired white gold color tone. The layer of rhodium improves the durability and hardness of the jewelry and adds the fine shiny silver color.
