    Mine is 14k white gold and I love it!  It’s sparkly white, but cheaper than platinum.  It’s also more durable than 18k white (great since I wear mine all the time and am not kind on it!).  We’re planning on having my wedding ring made of the same.

    @sporting:  Mine is 18K gold and I do like it alot.  I don’t have a strong preference for 14k vs. 18k but I have had allergic reaction to some of my 14k rings that I wear everyday.  So for me, 18k works better….less people have reactions to it.

    @sporting:  OK so your poll doesn’t have all the metal options. . . my ring is 14K yellow gold. I love it, but I really wanted rose gold (I guess my Fiance missed that one hint!). I’m going to get a rose gold wedding band– I like the idea of mixing the two colors a lot.

    @TwoStatesBride:  Might just be her ring. My ring and my friends are much shinier than all our friends who have a lesser grade metals. It could also be where it was purchased — not all jewelers are created equal. I’ve seen some beautiful 18K gold rings that sparkle and shine and than others that look dull. Weird.

    I think mine is 18k but I wish I had chosen platinum. I learned too late that my body rubs off rhodium plating pretty quickly =/ My band will be platinum

    My e-ring is 14k white gold; my antique RHR (circa 1920s) is platinum. I feel that they both are beautiful metals for their respective rings. The plat on my RHR definitely lends to its antique feel, while I love that my blingy e-ring enjoys the bright whiteness of the 14k white gold.

    @sporting:  I have 18k white gold and haven’t had any issues with it. It’s not yellowing or anything either

    All my rings are 14k yellow gold and for my jewellery, I prefer either 14k or 18k yellow gold

    My e-ring is 10K white gold.  I wanted white gold and didn’t really care what karat it was.  I like white gold because it gets warmer as the rhodium plating wears off.  Sadly, my nickel allergy has gotten worse so it will have to be reset.  I’m hoping in palladium white gold (nickel free)–which is what I want my wedding ring in

    Palladium! I have crazy skin allergies so gold was out of the question, and platinum was way out of our budget. I love my ring, but I polish it at least once a week to get rid of the “patina” effect (which only happens on the bottom of my band, where no one can see it anyway). I like a super shiny, reflective finish.

    I have platinum. I love the weight and look of it.
