White gold is a mixture (alloy) of gold and a white metal, most commonly nickel, silver, or palladium. Although the metal mixture and types of metal used account for a large part of the color variation, white gold rings are usually plated with rhodium, a silver/white metal that adds a lustrous sheen and a bit more durability.
White gold has become far more popular than traditional yellow gold in the last half-century, and it is now the most popular metal for engagement rings. This attests to its modern, versatile appearance, exceptional value, and high-end feel.
Due to its beauty and value, collecting white gold has been on the rise. Adding white gold jewelries in your collection can not only enhance the charm but its value as well. Here are some examples of white gold jewelry that can elevate your collection.
Diamond Halo Earrings – 18k White Gold
These beautiful Halo earrings are crafted from 18k gold, gripped onto handpicked 2.6mm center stones, and surrounded by smaller selected brilliant-cut stones, as if sent from Heaven. The Halo studs have a diameter of 5 mm and a total gold weight of 2.2 grams.
Diamond halo stud earrings, also known as halo diamond stud earrings, are stud earrings with a diamond halo setting. The center stone of an earring is held within a loop of smaller diamonds that form a “halo” around the center gem. A halo diamond earring is quite glamorous because its dazzling diamond halo adds to the brilliance and impact of its enclosed center stone.
Diamond halo settings give a pair of studs a lovely sheen, and they can also make your center diamonds appear larger than they are. When a white diamond is set within a diamond halo, the halo’s smaller diamonds extend the center diamond’s brilliance, making the overall surface area of the stud’s shimmer appear larger. When viewed from afar, as diamond studs are, this gives the impression that the center diamond is larger than it is. Halo settings are popular for all types of diamond jewelry, especially diamond engagement rings and diamond studs, due to this optical illusion.

Eternity rings are a powerful expression of two people’s commitment and a symbol of everlasting love. An eternity ring is a gift that will be cherished for years to come, so it’s important that you choose carefully. It’s traditionally given to mark a significant milestone in a relationship, such as a special wedding anniversary or the birth of a first child.
This piece is made of solid 18k white gold and features 45 baguette-cut diamonds that were hand-selected (total weight 7.05 ctw). Master jewelers meticulously hand-set each stone into four prongs.
Diamond eternity rings frequently feature baguette diamonds. For a more textured eternity ring, they are usually alternated with princess cut diamonds. For a vintage-inspired ring, baguette diamond eternity rings can also include round brilliant diamonds.
