Platinum. I know it seems like the most expensive option but when you compare the percentage of actual metal in the ring to fillers, platinum is a btter value than gold and does not need the re-dipping to keep its white color. If you plan to wear the ring daily for the rest of your life, I would (and did) go with the platinum.

To your question, I think sterling is a bit softer than gold and over time will bend. I love sterling for daily jewelry but think it is not the best choice for a wedding ring.

Have you considered Palladium? It’s lighter and cheaper than platinum, won’t tarnish like silver, and is comparable to white gold, pricewise (but won’t need to be dipped like gold will so that’ll save you some money in the long run!)

White gold like PP it will not bend as fast and I think it will tarnish.

I’ll just fourth(?) white gold. It won’t tarnish, you know it will match, it doesn’t bend as easily. I know it’s a little more expensive, but honestly I’m getting my band custom made – white gold with pave diamonds, for less than $300. Shop around. 🙂
