    I pretty much wear platinum only. Any scratches can get polished out if I really want it done but the bottom of my rings are still pretty shiny and in good shape and I wear mine to do everything but work out at the gym. I avoid doing that because of the pavè. It’s also a halo. I’ve had my e ring over a year now and my wedding ring for almost 4 months now. Both are in the same condition on bottom 🙂

    If you don’t mind redipping though and possibly needing to redo a shank later then white gold is still a nice choice. I loved wearing mine before we realised I had allergies to it. White gold was pretty much all I would wear other than an occasional rose gold piece. It held up well other than needing a yearly buffing and replating.

    If security is your biggest concern, I would go with platinum.

    I vote for platinum. Good security for the stones, as mentioned, and the scratches will blend to a beautiful patina over time.

    My engagement ring is a round halo in platinum. My wedding band is a full u-prong eternity in 14k white gold. I’ve had more issues with my e-ring (centre prongs coming loose) than my wedding band, but overall both have held up beautifully. If budget isn’t a concern, I’d stick with platinum. But my WG wedding band still looks perfect after years of hard wear and nothing has ever come loose or fallen off.  (I don’t baby my rings or take them off). Food for thought.

    Sitori :  personally i’d go with 10k white gold, it’s tougher and whiter than 14k, and it’s also most affordable. Imo the only point in higher karat gold it if you’re sensitive to alloys, or you want a strong tone of yello.

    I’d go with platinum for sure, but then again I’m not a big fan of white gold.
