White Gold Wedding Bands for Men
gold wedding bands for men combine the traditional use of gold in wedding
jewelry with the modern look of a cool, white metal. The stylish appearance,
unmistakable quality, and pleasing affordability make white gold the preferred
choice in menís wedding rings.
White gold, like platinum, has become popular among men looking for a white
metal wedding band. But unlike platinum, white gold is more widely available and
thus, more affordable. White gold matches nearly all skin tones and provides the
same variety of styles and designs as traditional yellow gold. With some
exceptions, white and yellow gold of equal karats will be equal in price.
As women are also smitten with the grayish-white metal, choosing white gold
allows the bride and groom to have rings that match in appearance. From chunky,
solid gold bands to intricate paisley patterns, the Apples of Gold
gold wedding bands for men span the spectrum of menís interests and
style preferences. Men can further customize their rings by choosing exterior
engraving such as a cross or Celtic knot pattern or by opting for the interior
engraving of a favorite Bible verse or message.
Many men wonder if white gold is as pure as traditional yellow gold. Whatís the
difference between the two? When speaking of gold quality and purity we donít
look at color, we look at karats. Yellow gold, rose gold and white gold of the
same karat measurement will be equal in purity. The metal that is used in the
alloy determines the color of the end product, but the percentage of pure gold
remains the same.
The karat number listed with each of our white gold wedding bands for men
determines the amount of pure gold present. The higher the karats weight the
higher the level of purity. While 18k gold is ideal for a wedding band, it is
important to remember that gold is a relatively soft metal. It gains strength
from the metals it is mixed with. Thus active men who plan to wear their band
during work and recreation should consider the more damage-resistant 14k gold.
White gold wedding bands for men are plated with rhodium, a hypoallergenic
metal. White gold rings may dull slightly with the passage of time, but a simple
re-plating refurbishes the rhodium and keeps your ring looking shiny and new.
Classic yet cool, traditional yet trend setting, white gold wedding bands for
men are your shining choice in wedding jewelry.
