wedding rings. Both metals are unique, but similar in several ways. Let’s see how gold and platinum are compared with appearance, fees, durability, and comfort.
Gold Gold and Platinum are the two most commonly used metals for involvement and Vs Platinum Appearance
Physical characteristics that distinguish the main between gold and colored platinum. While the platinum is naturally white, gold is naturally yellow. If you want a yellow ring, then gold (also called yellow gold) is the best choice. However, if you want a white ring, you can choose platinum or white gold.
The white gold ring consists of gold, alloy, and Rhodium coating that gives him a white look very similar to Platinum. 14K white gold and 14k yellow gold has a gold and purity (58.5% of gold), but alloys in white gold (and Rhodium coating) make it look white, while the yellow gold alloy does no While white gold looks very similar to Platinum, over time, the coating Rhodium in white gold will disappear and fade with yellowish tinge. After you polish again and replay the white gold ring, it will look white again. Platinum, the white naturally, it won’t fade yellow. Turning Gold White Yellow is a big problem, and that’s why we decided to give all our ethical rings a lifetime warranty that includes rescue and returning, so this shouldn’t be a concern if you go with us.

Gold costs vs platinum
While gold and platinum are similar to the price per gram, platinum is denser and so more is needed to make a ring. In addition, platinum rings are usually 95% pure platinum, while 14K gold is only 58.5% of gold (18K gold is 75% gold). Therefore, platinum rings are more expensive.
Gold durability vs platinum
Platinum is stronger and more durable
Although gold and platinum are strong and durable precious metals, platinum is stronger and more durable than both. For example, the branch holding the middle stone of the platinum engagement ring is less likely to rest then they are from the gold engagement ring.
Platinum scratches are easier than 14k gold
Although stronger and more durable, platinum is a metal that is softer than 14K gold. This means that it will be scratched a little easier than 14k gold will. However, the important thing to note is when gold is scratched, gold is lost and looks like a scratch. When platinum is scratched, platinum is moved from one place above the ring to another, and it develops something called Patina Finish (which looks like an antique or obsolete ring). Many people love and want patina finish.
The good thing is to re-polish the ring you will help restore the ring near the original look for platinum and gold. All Amore Rings include free lifetime polishing so if you buy your ring from us, don’t worry, you are in an extraordinary hand.
Really white platinum
As mentioned above, platinum will always be white but white gold needs to be polished back and re-layered occasionally to avoid yellow hue. This yellow hue usually appears several months to several years after polishing, depending on how much wear tear ring. Because all of Amore Rings do with a free lifetime guarantee that covers this, don’t worry if you get a ring from us.
When choosing between 14K and 18K, select 14K
If you decide to go with gold, make sure you choose gold 14k and not 18k gold. While 18k gold is more valuable, softer and will be easier than 14k gold will. 14K gold is cheaper, and more scratch resistant! Why don’t you choose it?
Comfort of Gold vs Platinum
Because platinum is denser than gold, the platinum ring will be heavier than gold too. Some prefer more weight, but some find light gold rings to be more comfortable.
Palladium as an alternative to gold and platinum
For those who want the price of a gold ring, with some platinum characteristics, the palladium may be a good alternative to consider. Palladium is naturally white, like platinum, but it is less expensive than platinum and is closer to a gold ring up to 14K. It is also known to Hypoallergenic like Platinum. We can produce all our rings in the palladium.
