I have 10 k and 14 k rings – both have been fine.  And some have come fron ebay. Is it white gold? If so the Rhodium dipping is the same for both. The higher the K the more alloy (less gold) so if u have allergies maybe not 10 k but 10 k is harder due to more alloy so if u are hard on your hands maybe 10 k. HTH 🙂

Daenaria727:  Is it an engagement ring?  A wedding ring that you’ll be pairing with something you already have?  If you plan to wear it (on the same finger) as a ring that you’re already wearing, you’ll want to match the metals, karat for karat.  For instance, if you have a 14K gold engagement ring, you’ll want to match it with a 14K wedding ring; if you mix, say, white gold and platinum, the platinum is a much harder metal, and will wear the gold ring down.  I know it’s certainly not worth the ~$1,100 difference in price – but the warranty through your Jared store will cover the cost of re-plating your ring.  As long as you keep up the “inspections.”  Since my Jared is near our mall, I’ll stop by there just before hitting the mall.  It’s all marketing, but I’m not an impulse jewelry shopper, so I’m safe. 😉

I have a 14k engagement ring from bidz.com and a 10k wedding band from ebay and you can barely tell.
