If you’re wearing it next to an e-ring, I’d go with the same metal as that so you don’t have issues with one wearing the other down.

If not, I don’t know much about palladium, other than I think it’s poisonous because of Iron Man, but between 14k and 18k white gold I’d choose 14k because it’s whiter and less soft.

I would choose either palladium or 14k white gold. My e-ring is 14k, so I would match it. Harder metals can scratch softer ones, so it’s better to use the same if you have two rings stacked together.

@MabelleBliss:  I second this advice: If you’re wearing it next to an e-ring, I’d go with the same metal as that so you don’t have issues with one wearing the other down.

@frogprincess:  I have 14k and platinum rings, but I went platinum for my e-ring and I adore it. I hated plating my rings. So I am on the palladium side. It’s a good combo between gold and platinum. Light and white and hypoallergenic!

If you don’t want to have to plate your rings, I would go with palladium.  Palladium rings are also hypo-allergenic and do not contain nickel.

If you dont mind the nickel or the plating, I would go with 14kt white gold.

@frogprincess:  If I was given those 3 choices I would go for palladium. White gold is a lot of maintenance and I actually just switched from it for that reason.
