Firstly, it is important to know what white gold actually is and why it may be different from yellow gold. White gold is actually an alloy of gold which is made up of a mixture of pure gold and various alloy metals such as palladium and silver. This then creates the classic silvery look of white gold, which some people prefer to wear than yellow gold.
These beautiful yellow and white gold twisted hoop earrings have a timeless twisted design and are a great size to wear everyday. These look classy paired with anything and are sophisticated enough to wear to the office.
We often get asked why white gold is a mixed metal, but in jewellery, all gold is actually mixed with harder metals to make it fit for purpose. Pure gold is a very soft metal and when producing jewellery, it needs to be mixed with other harder metals for added strength and durability. If we did not mix pure gold with other metals, it would easily bend out of shape making it unsuitable for jewellery as it would not be hard-wearing enough to be worn every day. Alloys that are mixed to create white gold are also often chosen due to the desirability of silver-looking jewellery.
These small white gold hoop earrings are extremely fancy and are sure to compliment any look you have planned for day or night. The pretty twisted design makes these really unusual white gold earrings stand out from the crowd. These would also make a perfect gift.
White gold suits everyone, but it really depends on your personal preference. Some people prefer the look of yellow gold, some prefer the look of white gold and others like to have a mixture of both so they can choose depending what look they want that day. If you would like to mix and match different colours of gold, we say go for it! You can get a really interesting and gorgeous look combining yellow and white gold, which is a huge trend at the moment too.
This pair of yellow and white gold creole earrings create a beautiful look, combing different colours of gold to really make your jewellery pop. The oval shape of these hoops are really on trend this year, with wider bottom earrings being the perfect pair to accompany all of your looks this summer.
White gold does last and as long as you care for it, you can keep and maintain a piece of white gold jewellery for many years. One thing people do notice about white gold jewellery, is that eventually it may begin to show the yellow gold colour. This is due to white gold being coated in rhodium to further add strength, durability and a lustrous white shine. The coating, over time, may begin to wear off, which can be influenced by the pH levels of your skin or what toiletries and other chemicals your jewellery comes into contact with, and yes, even environmental factors such as pollution can impact this.
This is not a cause to worry though, as if you do notice that the yellow gold is showing through, you can easily get it recoated with rhodium occasionally to extend its life. Maintenance and care are really crucial when it comes to jewellery and by having your white gold recoated every so often it really does help and can make your jewellery a timeless heirloom. The other bonus of this is that recoating is relatively inexpensive.
These stunning small white gold hoops have an unusual and unique design. These are a modern take on the classic white gold earrings for women and would look fabulous dressed up or dressed down with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt.
Along with maintaining your white gold hoop earrings large by having them occasionally recoated, there are other ways you can take care of your white gold jewellery.
You can keep your white gold jewellery pristine for longer, by removing it whenever you are going to do jobs that mean your jewellery will come into contact with chemicals – such as washing the pots.
You should always remove any jewellery when going swimming as chlorine can have a reaction to various metals which can damage your jewellery.
It is a good idea to remove jewellery before going to sleep or before showering or bathing.
Never directly spray your perfume, creams, sprays or cleaning products near or on your jewellery.
Only clean your jewellery with warm water and a soft microfibre cloth, so as not to use any cleaning products which may cause reactions with the metal.
Keep your jewellery away from direct sunlight, window sills, in cars or near radiators. Extreme heat can damage your jewellery.

Today’s white gold was actually invented back in the 19th century, but it didn’t really become popular until the 1920s. White platinum was a popular choice for so many military purposes which then meant that white gold was used for jewellery. The benefits of this initially was due to it being less expensive and an easy substitute for people to wear.
White gold has become increasingly popular in recent years, with many people opting to have their engagement and weddings rings made in white gold. It is all down to personal preference these days, and whether you choose and yellow or white gold jewellery is completely up to you. We have a fabulous range in our collection of white gold drop earrings that also combine yellow gold, so that you can have the best of both worlds.
The beautiful design of these unusual white gold hoop earrings combines yellow gold to create a classy and understated look. These comfortable to wear double hoops are the perfect choice for those who cannot decide between yellow gold or white gold.
Of course! As we have mentioned earlier, white gold is a combination of gold and a silver-look metal alloy such as silver or palladium which is then coated in rhodium to produce the shiny, silver look that white gold has. The amount of pure gold that an item of jewellery contains can be identified by what karat it is. For example, a 24kt white gold ring contains more pure gold and isn’t as durable or hardwearing as a 14kt white gold ring due to the softness of gold.

White gold is usually priced about the same as yellow gold, however, sometimes you may find white gold jewellery costs a little more than yellow gold due to the rhodium plating of the metal. White gold is often a much more reasonable option though, due to the fact it is durable and has the sought-after silver look. If you were choosing a different option, such as platinum which has a similar look, you will find that white gold is much cheaper, meaning it is a great choice for people who may be on more of a budget. With white gold you get all of the look and quality without the price tag and that is a win, win in our eyes!
