Gold is the traditional choice for men’s wedding bands. The beautiful, shiny appearance exudes luxury and wealth. Though gold is softer than some other metals, it is still a popular choice because of its classic look and elegance. White gold has a more modern look than yellow gold with the same great qualities of fine gold jewelry.
Gold comes in many different colors and karat weights. Men’s 18K white gold rings are one possible choice. White gold rings have an alloy added to the gold both to change the color of the metal and to make them stronger. In an 18K white gold ring, this means that there are 18 parts gold (which is yellow in its pure form – 24K) and 6 parts of a white metal alloy.
