Casual jewelry buyers are often confused about various gold colors. There are three gold colors that are suitable for making jewelry - white, yellow and pink (rose). When it comes to men's rings, yellow has always been the most popular choice. Things changed in recent years when men became more conscious about what they wear. The demand for men's white gold rings spiked and continues to surge. It would not be wrong to say that, men are no strangers to white metals. Sterling silver with its classic look and affordable price, has always been a favorite with men. Coming to the essence of this report, are white gold rings for men, durable enough for regular wear. Is white gold as tough as yellow or rose gold.

Gold in its natural form is always yellow, the more important thing is that, pure gold is too soft to be made into durable jewelry. The metal needs to be alloyed along with other metals to make it harder. The 'other' metals can not only harden the gold alloy but, also be used to deliver different colors of gold. When pale metal colors like palladium are added to yellow gold, the alloy takes on a very pale color. This after special surface treatments gives white gold. Rose or pink gold is got by adding copper to yellow gold. 

So you now know how the metal for a men's white gold ring is derived, what about metal hardness. As the proportion of the 'other'  metals increases in the gold alloy, so does the hardness of the resulting alloy. Gold alloy standards exist to precisely define the proportion of gold and 'other' metals in an alloy.

Just how durable a men's white gold ring is would depend on the proportion of gold and other metals in the alloy. This brings us to the topic of 10k, 14k and 18k white gold rings. What you should remember is that,  the proportions of gold and other metals is defined by these standards, it remains the same irrespective of gold color. 10k gold is harder than 14k gold, which in turn is harder than 18k gold. The cost of the gold alloy also moves up as the 'k' number of the alloy increases.
