dw4518 :  White gold is an alloy and has other metals like nickel, palladium or silver mixed in. My guess is that whatever casting house made your setting did not properly mix the alloy before pouring it in the mold, leaving you with a streak of metal running through it. The rhodium plating probably hid this until it wore off.

dw4518 :  Is it heavy? Do you have a silver or 14k gold ring to compare it to. This may sound odd, but it COULD be a brass or bronze ring that is rhodium plated with 18k white gold, and then plated over with platinum. I’ve seen this a bit, and this is the only thing I can think of that has this wear pattern.

Have you tried polishing it with silver polish? I could swear I’ve heard of this before but I can’t remember the cause. Try the polish first.
