Remember rings are not indestructible, and come into more contact than any other jewelry item. Always discuss your activities, lifestyle, and what is recommended with an experienced jewelry professional.
For white metals, platinum is a great choice when selecting more delicate setting styles such as French Pave or U set. Platinum also has superior holding power, so even if a ring bends, the diamonds are held in place.
Since platinum is dense and heavier than gold, white gold should be used for thicker and heavier designs.
As far as fashion, always select bands that compliment your engagement ring, whether they match or not! Mixing rose or yellow gold with your white metal stacking rings or engagement ring is trending!
Find a style that speaks to you, and have fun choosing and wearing your rings!
