Tips for Purchasing White gold earrings

Before buying a pair of white gold earrings, one must be certain about few things. Firstly thing is that one should be certain about the carat which you are intending to buy. 24k is the most pure Gold, but it is very soft and may not have a long life and hence is not recommended. 18k is the next available carat, it is elegant and strong and is suitable for items like rings earrings and all. 14K is also available; it is very strong and elegant and has decent amount of gold in it.

The most important thing to be noted which purchasing a pair of white gold earrings is that lower the carat, lower the amount of gold it contains or in other words less pure the white gold earrings is. Also the lower the carat, stronger the white gold earrings are. So while deciding which white gold earrings to purchase, you must take into consideration the strength and the quantity of Gold it contains. 18K and 14K are the most advised and preferred ones as they have both purity and strength.

Another thing which should be considered is that which metal is used with Gold. Nickel may be allergic for few people and palladium overcoat must be refinished every 1-2 years to keeps its appearance as white gold.
