There are several similarities between white gold and silver jewellery. Both metals are popular and to the untrained eye, they can look the same. So, what is the difference, and which is the best option?
One of the biggest advantages of the white-greyish material is that it is highly hypoallergenic. This makes silver jewellery ideal for people who suffer from sensitive skin or metal allergies. Sterling silver tends to be the best option for silver jewellery as it contains over 92% of real silver and allows for a variety of intricate designs.
What’s the Value of Silver?
While silver is typically more affordable than gold, it is still a precious metal. It may be affordable, but it still offers a high quality, making it appealing for daily wear. Many people who wear silver jewellery enjoy buying a well-crafted piece without being left out of pocket.
The Look and Feel of Silver Jewellery
Silver offers cool hues that compliment cooler skin tones tremendously. It also goes really well with different shades of green, blue, purple and other gems. What’s more, silver is a lot firmer than gold which means it’s more resistant to dents and scratches. You can find a wide choice available at www.silver.uk.com.
Looking After Silver Jewellery
Silver is not necessarily the easiest kind of metal to look after. If you fail to look after it properly and store it adequately, it may tarnish. However, there are many silver wearers who prefer this look as it makes their jewellery appear vintage.
WHITE GOLD JEWELLERY
Just like wearing silver, skin tends to be less susceptible to reactions and allergies when wearing white gold jewellery.
The Value of White Gold Jewellery
Since white gold is a metal made by combining several metallic ingredients and is therefore an alloy, its prices depend on its components. White gold typically consists of copper, silver and gold. In some cases, it can be made with lesser quality materials like nickel which irritates the skin.
The Look and Feel of White Gold
Since white gold is an alloy, it can be found in many shades. Some pieces may look more yellow, but the most popular shade of white gold looks just like silver. The difference, though is that it’s a more subtle type of white with yellow undertones. White gold comprises around 50% of gold, which means it is a softer metal and easier to create delicate shapes with.
Looking After White Gold
Gold is popular due to its ability to not oxidize from moisture and air. Just like the metal, gold, white gold tends to be easy to care for and doesn’t require much cleaning.
WHITE GOLD OR SILVER?
Both white gold and silver jewellery have their pros and cons when it comes to picking the best option for you. It will all come down to your budget, how much maintenance you are prepared to do and how and where you will wear the jewellery.

I didn’t know there’s a thing called white gold until now! I like that there’s less allergy/reactions involved with the white gold. I like silver but it gets itchy sometimes. It’s great that white gold doesn’t oxidize either! Thanks for explaining the difference 🙂
You are most welcome Nancy!
