|There are two kinds of White Gold: Nickel based and Palladium based. Some people are
allergic to Nickel, so Palladium white gold is a good alternative. Palladium white gold is
the only legal alloy in Europe. It also self burnishes and keeps a polish.
|The most popular color is yellow which is made by adding silver and some copper. The metals
are melted together to form an alloy of the desired color and karat. It is very important
that all the ingredients are pure and that the amounts of each are weighed very accurately
to prevent porosity, which weakens the alloy.
