Fifa1:  hi there! So first there’s no such thing as “pure white gold”. Gold is yellow so to make it white it’s usually mixed with nickel and then plated with rhodium. Palladium white gold is usually nickel-free, as the palladium replaces the nickel.  I think palladium white gold alloys are a lot more common in Europe. They can be found in the US too, but they’re definitely harder to find.

Both my rings are palladium white gold. I know A. Jaffe uses palladium white gold (exclusively, I think) but I think a lot of smaller jewelers work with palladium white gold and I found some rings one Etsy as well ( https://www.etsy.com/listing/171695101/solid-24kt-and-palladium-white-gold-14?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=shopping_us_jewelry-ring-gold-mid&utm_custom1=2a346b96-5ee9-c9e9-9baa-0000134f0c14&kpid=171695101&gclid=CIab7vPyv8UCFVYXHwodXhgAjg ). If you google “palladium white gold alloy rings” there are a few more that come up. 

 

Hope that helps, good luck!!

I have a palladium e-ring, and when I used to browse Etsy with the search terms “palladium band” or “palladium ring,” I’d come across palladium white gold all the time. However, FI’s band is regular white gold (made with nickel), has no rhodium plating, and it’s not yellow at all – very silvery. So, if you’re not allergic, you might find that regular unplated white gold is the right color, and it would expand your options.

My ring is a Simon G and I know he uses palladium alloyed gold. I have had it over 2 years and never needed it to be rhodium plated.
