White gold is basically is an alloy of gold and at least one white metal, such as Nickel, Silver and Platinum. History goes back to 1920;s, when white gold substituted Platinum because it’s expensive and it needs higher temperature to operate. Earlier, Nickel Alloy is used to make white gold as it hard, strong and good for rings manufacturing but nickel alloy caused reaction to some people (Ratio is 1 out of 8) so now Palladium is used. White gold rings are coated with another white metal called Rhodium. The Plating is used to make the white gold rings whiter. White Gold rings are further classified as Promise Rings, Engagement Rings, Wedding Rings, Birth-Stone Rings and they all made for different purposes.
