Wedding Rings as Good as (White) Gold
Searching for the gold standard of men’s wedding bands? Look no further than white gold.Posted | Updated
Few things can rival the classic look and timeless style of a white gold wedding band. Trends come and go but gold, particularly white gold, never goes out of style. It has endured the test of time and withstood the fickle whims of fashion. Simply put – men’s white gold wedding bands are a sure bet, now and for years to come.
With so many metals to choose from when you’re shopping for your wedding band, you may feel overwhelmed. Rest assured, you’ll have no regrets when you choose white gold or a white gold alternative for your ring, and Jordan Jack’s selection of unique men’s wedding bands makes it easy to find one that’s good as gold.
What is White Gold? Is it Real Gold?
White gold is most definitely real gold.
Gold jewelry is widely available in three colors; yellow, rose, and white. Pure gold is a bright yellow and isn’t a great choice for jewelry due to its soft nature. As such, gold is typically alloyed with other metals to make it stronger so it can handle the daily wear endured by jewelry. The metals with which it is alloyed gives gold its different hues.
White gold is pure gold that is alloyed with silvery-white metals to dilute the yellow color, provide strength and durability, and give it the desired white luster.
White gold, like other gold, is categorized by the amount of pure gold it contains. In wedding jewelry, 14 karat gold provides the best ratio of pure gold to alloy metals to make it both beautiful and durable.
Originally developed to imitate platinum, white gold now enjoys a popularity all its own.
Why We Love White Gold…and Why You’ll Love It Too
There is so much to love about white gold. Combining the best of both worlds between gold and platinum, white gold reigns king in white metals for wedding rings. It has the same bright, lustrous appearance as platinum and silver, but boasts a more affordable price tag than platinum and is more hard wearing than silver.
White gold’s neutral color is a beautiful compliment to any gemstone or diamond and it is easily suited to both classic and modern styles. It has a timeless, high quality look and feel with a versatility that’s hard to rival. A 14k white gold men’s wedding band is a classic choice that will withstand the test of time.
A precious metal, white gold is a great alternative to platinum. It is less expensive than platinum, requires less maintenance than platinum, and is harder and more scratch resistant than platinum.

Alternatives to White Gold
While we love white gold for so many reasons, we know it’s not for everyone. Every metal has its advantages and disadvantages which must be weighed when choosing your wedding ring material. If you love the look of white gold but are looking for a metal with different properties, Jordan Jack has you covered! Here are some of our favorite white gold alternatives to help you find the ring that’s right for you:
- Sterling Silver: Sterling silver is a versatile white metal that can take on many finishes. From high polished shine to matte finish and everything in between, sterling silver gives you endless options at a very affordable price. Best of all, wear and tear are easily erased with cleaning and polishing, making it simple to return sterling silver to its original finish and luster.
Jordan Jack’s Sterling Silver High Polished Band combines the classic look of a traditional wedding band with a modern comfort fit that feels great on your finger. High polished radiance perfectly complements the wide band, making this a marriage of old and new that will last a lifetime.
- Titanium: Similar in appearance to white gold, titanium boasts excellent strength and durability. It is also extremely lightweight, so if you’re not used to wearing jewelry titanium might be the perfect choice for you.
Our Titanium Diamond Solitaire Band features a modern look with a brushed titanium outer band and a single diamond nestled perfectly in the center. Contoured polished edges ensure a smooth comfortable fit that compliments the gleaming inner band.
- Tungsten: Tungsten is the hardest metal available for wedding jewelry. As such, it is nearly scratch-proof and incredibly resistant to wear and tear. Tungsten is also heavy, making it a great option for those who love the heft of a weighty ring.
With a bright finish that looks much like white gold, Jordan Jack’s White Tungsten Brushed Center Double Grooved Fashion Band gives you the best of both metals. Double grooves surround a brushed finish center while the high polished edge provides a comfort fit. Tarnish resistant, durable and strong, this ring has everything you’re after.
- Stainless Steel: Prized for its anti-corrosion properties, strength, and durability, stainless steel is gaining traction in the wedding ring world. It is easily cleaned with soap and water and is hygienic, hypoallergenic, and tarnish-resistant.
Our Stainless Steel and 1/10 CTTW Diamond Band is a stunning alternative to white gold. Ten sparkling diamonds are framed by a brushed stainless steel inner band while textured grooves give way to polished comfort fit edges. A high polished inner band adds the perfect finishing touch.
- Cobalt: Cobalt is an up-and-coming favorite among platinum and white gold enthusiasts. Its natural white hue is about as close as you can get to platinum, yet it is even more affordable than both platinum and white gold. Additionally, cobalt is extremely durable, highly scratch resistant, shatterproof, non-tarnishing, and has great design versatility.
This Cobalt Two-Tone Rose Gold and White Band combines the look of white gold with eye-catching rose gold accents. Brushed cobalt bricks are flanked by rose gold and high polished cobalt, while the inner band gleams with a smooth comfort finish.
- Tantalum: Somewhat darker than platinum and white gold, tantalum has an appealing luster that’s manly and versatile. It’s one of the most scratch resistant metals available and is also corrosion resistant, durable, and strong. Additionally, tantalum has the coolness factor on its side with a futuristic and industrial feel.
The Jordan Jack Tantalum Milgrain Band sports a milgrain edge reminiscent of industrial gears with a brushed tantalum center band. The polished inner band gives a smooth comfortable fit that perfectly complements this ring’s design.
