How to choose the right metal: White

Most jewellery gold is an alloy of gold, silver and copper. While the total gold content is determined by the carat, white gold adds some precious platinum which naturally filters out yellow color from the gold.  Unless requested we do NOT rhodium plate our white gold.
 9ct An affordable light white gold. Minimum gold standard in UK.
14ct Hardwearing. May contain trace of nickel. Avoid if known nickel allergy. 
18ct Best for wedding and jewellery.
