Your life together will be solid and continual and the symbols of your devotion should be just as strong and elegant. White gold wedding bands offer a simple beauty with a precious metal that has been used as a sign of eternal devotion for centuries. Its white characteristics come from traditional gold mixed with a blend of silver and palladium and rhodium plating to add extra shine and white coloring. This plating can be replaced whenever extra shine is desired. The rhodium plating also creates a harder barrier to protect the softer inner gold from scratching deeply.
