So I am not really a jewlery wearer- at ALL! I am allergic to anything cheap and I would always rather take a vacation than buy anything expensive. In fact we don't even have wedding rings- that is how not into jewlery I am. HOWEVER I have seen a ring that I just think hubbie would love, and wear. It comes in sterling, white gold and platinum. The platinum I know is harder and better and all that but I just am not going to spend the extra money on that. I am having a little bit of trouble trying to figure out why the gold would be better than the silver. He would not wear it at work- and it does not have any stones in it, so I am thinking I can just buy the silver one, right? I mean, gold is worth more, but this is a very geeky thing that is going to be custom engraved so it is not like we are going to sell it one day. Can someone tell me gold vs silver and why one is better? It is about twice the price for the white gold version, and I am happy to pay that if it is actually better, but why do it? Any advise would be appreciated.
