bloom15 :  Thank you! I was going to sell it or trade it in when I upgraded, but I can’t part with it. Mostly because my 11 year old daughter said I couldn’t. LOL!

michellelynn9175 :  that set still looks amazingly white how awesome is that!

 I think it all depends on the mixing of the alloys I believe Tiffany &co do not plate their white gold either..

meliamartinez31 :  Believe it or not, I got the diamond solitaire from Shane Co when we first got engaged back in 2005. The bands are actually from Kay Jewelers, and they used to be 2 separate bands, one on either side of my solitaire so it was a 3 band look. One of the stones fell out, so I had the head put on the pave band where the stone fell out and turned it into a 2-band set in all pave. It was over $400 JUST to have that head moved and if I remember right, they kept the solitaire band as a credit to go toward it! Looking back, I probably should’ve shopped around instead of using the first jeweler that popped up on Google with good reviews. LOL!

bloom15 :  you definitely can. The brand Niessing calls it grey gold. There’s no hint of yellow whatsoever. You can have grey gold plated as well to make it the typical color of WG and if/when it wears of it still is white but not as bright. I personally don’t like the look of platinum but my wedding band is platinum because I didn’t have it custom made and it only came in platinum. I haven’t had it/ worn it long enough for it to become like steel (that’s what platinum lover call patina – I just call it old steel pipe or handrail color). I do however like they weight of platinum! 

ots all just a matter of personal taste… do what you like best.
