Choosing the Right Metal

Choosing the Right Metal

Almost all Whitehouse Brothers jewelry pieces are available in Platinum and white, yellow or rose gold. Please see the product detail pages for specifics on which rings are available in which finishes.
Platinum is the preferred metal for filigree, offering superior strength and durability for the intricate filigree cuts. It's bright white color compliments the brilliance of a diamond like no other metal.

 

Platinum Platinum
Platinum is the ideal metal for filigree jewelry because of its strength, durability and cool white sheen. Whitehouse Brothers platinum jewelry is 95% pure platinum and 5% ruthenium. Platinum will deliver the most durability of any metal over time.

 

 

White Gold

White Gold
Whitehouse Brothers’ 18K white gold is 75% gold and 25% palladium. Traditionally nickel, copper and zinc are used as alloys. Instead of these alloys, Whitehouse Brothers uses palladium (a member of the platinum family) to mix with gold. The benefits of this mixture include a whiter metal, higher density (feels heavier) and the rings are non-allergenic.

 

Yellow Gold

Yellow Gold
18K yellow gold is 75% gold and 25% alloy metals. Whitehouse uses a yellow gold alloy that produces a rich gold color and very high luster.

 

Pink Gold

Rose Gold
14K rose gold is 58.3% percent gold and 41.7% alloy metals. A higher percentage of copper is added to the alloy to produce a beautiful rose color.
