@mrsgarkenzie:  It really isn’t a big deal to have a white gold ring dipped.  Before I learned to love the warm sheen of a worn white gold ring, I would have mine redipped every two to three years for around $45.  Definitely worth the savings over platinum if you have a small budget.

@mrsgarkenzie:  If you’re wanting a ring that will last, silver is not the way to go. And honestly no one will think twice about it if you’re wearing silver and white gold at the same time. 

ETA: I like the Erica Weiner ring. Pretty!

I like number 3 and 5.  Three and five look more like engagement rings and wouldn’t get caught on anything.

Congrats!!

@mrsgarkenzie:  Try Gemvara? They can be kind of overpriced IMO but it depends on what you’re looking for. They definitely have lots of options within your budget in both white gold and silver.

Their silver alloy is really nice. I have several silver pieces from them and they have held up very well over time – no tarnishing or warping. IMO if you choose a ring with a heavy and sturdy enough setting, Argentium silver will last and last. My only concern with quality silver would be the prongs weakening over time.

The biggest problem with silver is its softness means it can bend and lose metal easily.  This isn’t as much of an issue with a thicker ring, a ring with no stones, or a ring with bezel set stones, but I wouldn’t bother with anything pronged/pave.  I ruined a silver ring of mine by hitting the prongs on something – one of the stones was knocked out and it was cheaper to buy a new ring than repair it.

 

here’s a ring that has sort of a floral design with some sparkle:

In palladium this would be a little more than your budget, but it would be low profile and blingy (I have a cz version of this ring, and love it).

Also check out Bandscapes on Etsy.  I’ve always loved this ring from there:
