I’ve only had my DK engagement ring for a month but I have never seen any hints of yellow in my 18k White gold. It’s very white and bright. The picture I included are all rings by him. The e ring and rose gold are mine but the wedding band is from his case in 14k white gold.

My white gold band is really old, and naturally patina’d. 

It’s definitely not the same color as my white gold e-ring, but I love the look of it.

ahartig: I have a 14k gold ring by him, but have only had it a little over a month or so. I think it looks pretty white, havent seen any yellow in it. I actually like when it starts to patina a bit and show a bit of warmth. I didn’t know this about his white gold so I will have to watch and see what happens xD

ahartig:  i used to have a 14k white gold halo setting made by David klass that was not rhodium plated. It never looked yellowish and was super shiny. It matched my rhodium plated white gold bands very well.

as you can see in my pics, it’s really hard to tell unless you are reallly looking closely.

It all depends on what the gold has been alloyed with.  If it’s been alloyed with palladium, it will appear white and does not need to be rhodium plated.  If it’s been alloyed with nickel (which is cheaper and thus widely used in a lot of white gold jewelry), then it will appear “yellowish” without rhodium plating.  In this case, it’s likely the former composition, thus no need for rhodium plating.

I imagine he uses either palladium white gold, or an alloy like Stuller X1 (which does use nickel and some other metals I believe). These are white, and do not look yellow. I used to have rings in 18k palladium white gold, unplated, and they were a shiny greyish-white. 

This is all different than a “warm white” which is unplated white gold too, but the alloy is a “regular” alloy. Some people purposely choose this look, as well.
