Purity is often seen as a desirable quality for a variety of reasons, largely cultural ones. Sometimes, though, impurity is not the worst thing in the world. It may actually be desirable. Take gold jewelry as an example. 24K gold is as pure as it gets: 100% gold, with other elements taking up little to none of the remaining space. In this form, it is too pliable to serve as a good basis for wearable jewelry.
Meanwhile, 18K gold is an alloy — only 75% gold, with nickel and zinc filling the remaining space. It is also known as white gold, revered for its luxuriousness. The yellow of the gold disappears when mixed with the grey of its elemental companions. However, their collective brilliance produces a beautiful white stone that glows like a sun under even the slightest touch of light.
We adore engagement rings white gold products here at eWeddingBands, and we are proud to offer over 20 examples with distinct cuts. Each is named for the flower whose blossom the stone most closely resembles. Our garden features roses, gardenias, lotuses, marigolds, and so much more. Feel free to browse our selection, pluck one of these gems, and find out how wonderful impurity can be.
