Gold is a naturally occurring element. Its malleability makes it an ideal choice for creating fine jewelry. 14K white gold is commonly used for engagement rings, pendants, eternity bands, earrings, and other such fine jewelry pieces.
It is a mixture of gold and other metals such as nickel, zinc, and copper along with rhodium plating which improves its durability. Gold on its own is soft so these alloy metals increase the strength of its composition. Moreover, 14K white gold is definitely real, contrary to popular belief. Jewelry is almost never made of pure, 24K gold as it is far too soft and could easily scratch or bend.
Despite an appearance similar to platinum, 14K white gold is quite affordable, offering great value for the money due to its durability and strength. The price of 14K white gold can vary depending upon the type of setting that is chosen, and how much metal is used in the piece.
