Hello bee friends!! Help! The setting that I am currently looking at comes in white gold or platinum. Obviously, I’ve read all of the posts on weddingbee that discuss the differences, pros/cons, between the two. The biggest difference I see right now between them, is a $2,000 one! lol. The white gold setting is 4,000, and the platinum is 6,000. We are most likely going to go with the white gold setting due to the price. I am fine with this – but I would love to see some of your rings so I can see the difference (or lack there of) in these metals!!! I’m sure each and every one of your rings are fabulous, but this would really help me out (i think/hope)!! Thanks much 🙂 🙂

Mine is platinum with a cushion brilliant cut diamond. 🙂 FI chose platinum because it didn’t have to be re-dipped, only buffed back into shininess. Platinum’s atoms do not wear away like gold’s, but merely get shifted around creating a dull “patina,” which some people like. It only takes a buffing to get it back to the original luster, though. I hope that helps!

My e-ring is platinum set, and the band I choose is actually white gold. I actually like how the two metals compliment each other on my hand…plus, it was way harder finding the wedding band than the engagement ring! 🙂

All of these rings are stunning. I guess it’ll be a tough decision on my part!

14kt white gold. 🙂
ETA: Me personally? I’d rather save the $2k. Re-dipping makes it look *brand* new and usually doesn’t need to be done more often than every couple of years. It generally costs about $35… so that’s a LOT of redipping you’d have to do before you’d reach the cost of the platinum.

FI got me platinum because he thought I was allergic to gold..! I’m actually allergic to sterling silver lolol.. I’m not complaining. I really wouldn’t mind white gold, as I heard platinum is “softer” and easier to dent/scratch.
