    Great thing to consider, what metal! Like BrookeBQ said, the underside of a white gold ring will get yellow-ish. On my e-ring it really bothered me!!! The top part of my white gold ring was not turning yellow, just the side that gets rubbed the most, inside the hand. I hated it so much that I had the shank cut off and a platinum shank soldered! Now my shank is platinum and the basket part of my ring is still white gold. Perfect solution, and it looks all very uniform.

    I have 2 white gold rings and they’re all turn a little yellow over time most on the palm size that I normally rub again a lot of stuff.  I could also see more dents and scratch on those ring.  My Engagement ring is platinum (also my wedding band) so I don’t see dent but light scratch.  When I got my ring polish at our local jewelry, it will look as new again (no dip or plate, just quick polish).  So I would recommend to have platinum even though it’s a lot more expensive but I think it’s quite low maintenance and durable.

    i chose palladium. it wears the same as platinum, doesnt need redipping and is much cheaper. ive worn my plain wedding ring for a week and it does show some scratches, my husbands is worse as it is wider, making them more noticeable, plus he gigs and lifts amps, guitars and things so is more liable to scratching. as far as i know, these scratches polish out easily.

    I actually had to search for a long time to find a place where the husband and I could buy our UN-dipped wedding rings :p! LOL!
    I really like the yellowish-warm glow white gold has in it’s “natural” un-dipped state, it is warm, without being too yellow. I don’t like yellow gold, it’s too yellow for me.
    I find that platinum and dipped white gold look just like silver.
    Not that there is anything wrong with that, of course not!
    But I liked the warmer white gold on my skin tone, it was less harsh/cold compared to the dipped white gold.
    And, I just associate a wedding band being made of gold. It’s more traditional to me.
    The scratching is very light and even (it’s a plain, smooth wedding band, no stones) so it’s really not very noticeable at all.
    For me the emotional part (like feeling my wedding band “had” to be a gold band, even though silver would have been a better fit for our budget :p!) was the most important part.

    Now we’re looking for an un-dipped white gold e-ring (we’re doing things a little backward), and jewellers just do not understand I do not want a dipped ring :p!

    But whatever you’ll chose (or have chosen?) I am sure it will be wonderful! Really, it’s all about personal preferences, you really can’t go wrong with such a lovely ring!

    Maybe a pic that shows some wear here (platinum shank, white gold basket) I love when a ring gets scratches. It looks worn! I especially like a wide man’s wedding band get that scratched look.

    I am an odd one, I look forward to my rings aging and having a yellowish tint. I think it shows the time and love it has had. My rings are not that old so thye are still new looking. Underneath they show some wear.
