Jaubalet Care – Men’s white gold ring
The white gold ring requires some maintenance to keep its shine and allure intact, white gold rings will tend to oxidize more easily because they are made up of a combination of many alloys. The rhodium or platinum plating intended to give them a white colour will tend to lose its shine and turn yellow. It becomes necessary to get a new rhodium plating at your jewellers in order to restore their brightness and shine. Although white gold is more affordable than yellow gold, it requires much more maintenance over time. It is possible to have the rhodium plating redone every 2 or 3 years. Nevertheless, apart from this operation, it is not necessary to give it important daily maintenance, just avoid leaving it too much in contact with humidity, as far as cleaning is concerned, a wipe with a cloth is sufficient.
