White gold is one of our favourite jewellery metals here at PepperPink. Gold is such a beautiful metal and more durable when alloyed. All our white gold is a mixture of gold and palladium for a truly white gleam.
The most common use of white gold is of course with diamonds for an eye-catching engagement ring. However, if you’re not hearing wedding bells just yet, it doesn’t mean you should rule out diamonds and white gold altogether.
Diamonds set in white gold are such a beautiful combination that everyone should enjoy them! To avoid verging into engagement ring territory, just avoid purely white diamonds. Adding different coloured diamonds into the mix is a clear indication that this is not a diamond ring in the matrimonial sense. This solitaire ring features a large black diamond surrounded with smaller white diamonds for a classically monochrome look.
Although diamonds and white gold are natural bedfellows, other precious stones can positively gleam when surrounded with white gold. This sapphire half eternity ring is an unusual colour combination and a striking design. This is a fashion forward statement that stands out from the crowd so wallflowers need not apply!
If you just love the timeless combination of white diamonds and white gold, then there is a very simple solution – look at other types of jewellery such as earrings. There are clearly no connotations where earrings are concerned!
With these white gold earrings, we have re-worked the tradition of pavee diamonds in a thoroughly modern way. The main feature is actually a pearl, with the pavee diamonds clasping the pearl in a delicately feminine way. So, by taking two perennial classics – pavee diamonds and pearl earrings – the result is a truly unique piece of jewellery. You won’t see earrings like these on any one else.
White gold is subtle and doesn’t have all the shouting power of yellow gold. Despite this, it remains constantly popular, whereas yellow gold dramatically peaks and troughs in popularity.
You might bring your favourite yellow gold out of the jewellery pouch every couple of years and wear it religiously for a season. On the other hand, you will wear your white gold jewellery year after year, as a flattering go-to piece for jazzing up a cocktail dress. White gold makes paler skin look beautifully translucent rather than ghostly. Which is useful considering the British weather!
