WHITE GOLD WEDDING
The white gold wedding band: pure elegance and sophistication!
Marriage is the ceremony of a lifetime: it unites two beings forever. Therefore, traditions, whose origins we sometimes ignore, are often respected: the wedding dress, the wedding dress, the throwing of the bouquet of flowers or even the opening of the ball are essential moments of a wedding. It is the same for the two rings that the bride and groom exchange during the ceremony, symbols of their eternal union. This essential jewel, traditionally made in yellow gold, has survived the ages by evolving aesthetically to now be available in pink gold, platinum but also in white gold. Discover the white gold wedding rings from Maison Bäumer.
The alliance, quite a symbol
The wedding ring is the most symbolic jewel in jewelry. Indeed, in white, yellow, pink or platinum gold, the ring exchanged by the newlyweds on the wedding day has become the most famous jewel in the world. The first traces of wedding rings and engagement rings would have appeared in ancient Egypt. They can be thin or thick and the metal you want. This ring is generally placed on the ring finger of the left hand, finger connected directly with the heart. The circular shape of the ring symbolizes eternity. Since then, the wedding ring has become an emblematic jewel, recognized worldwide for its symbolic value.
The benefits of white gold
White gold is a metal obtained after undergoing a special treatment called rhodium plating. That is, the base gold has been coated with a thin layer of metal (called rhodium) to give it its white color and shine.
If white gold is an alloy that is increasingly appreciated and used in jewelry, this is explained by the physical and aesthetic characteristics of this metal. Indeed, this alloy has many advantages.
To begin with, white gold is a metal of exceptional quality because 18 carat gold is recognized as being the most resistant metal used in jewellery. In addition, this quality makes it stainless and therefore much more durable over time. This metal is also more accessible than platinum, a metal also used for engagement rings or wedding rings.
The aesthetics of white gold is highly appreciated by a majority of people. Indeed, one of its main advantages is that it goes with all the colors of stones: emerald, ruby, sapphire, tourmaline, spinel or other stones. The goldwhite combines perfectly well with the latter. Diamonds commonly adorn wedding rings and engagement rings, for their brilliance and symbolism. Thus, white gold is an ideal metal for all types of jewelry: necklace, bracelet, earrings, pendant or ring. This metal goes perfectly with everyday jewelry.
The different types of white gold wedding rings
Wedding rings are a classic piece of jewelry. Our House has three types of wedding rings in white gold:
For women, as for men, the wedding ring is the jewel of a lifetime. With several models of wedding rings, with several colors of gold and stones of different sizes, Maison Bäumer can also create the wedding jewel of your dreams by making it tailor-made. Because love is priceless, an engraving or a specific stone can be added around your ring.
To move away from the classic style and approach a more original style, you can also let yourself be tempted by the mixture of golds on the same two-tone wedding ring. For example, white and pink gold are found on our 19.2 wedding ring as well as our solitaires. These models, which can be found in our 19 collection, are original and timeless models.
How to choose your wedding ring in white gold?
In order to choose the white gold wedding band that suits you, rely on your preferences and desires. The important thing is to follow your desires and/or those of the loved one.
You will need to choose the correct ring size. For this, you will have to measure your ring finger and that of your future husband. Whether directly at home or at your jeweler. If you have long, slender fingers, finer wedding rings are recommended.
Finally, pay particular attention to the aesthetics of your ring depending on the engagement ring you already have. For example, a simple wedding band will go perfectly with an engagement ring set with diamonds. Conversely, a micro-pavé wedding ring will go just as well with a simpler engagement ring.
Because this wedding ring is the symbol of your eternal love, you can personalize it according to your wishes. Indeed, for women as for men, Lorenz Bäumer likes to create new models of jewelry. Add a particular engraving on the edge of your alliance such as a letter, a first name or a specific word on your ring which may already be set with diamonds or another stone.
Each love story is unique, make your ring even more original by creating the alliance that will not be found anywhere else.
Diamonds and white gold: a winning duo of refinement
As explained above, although white gold easily combines with all colored stones, diamonds remain the stone that goes best with this alloy. Indeed, the white diamond will stand out more and bring shine and sparkle to your initial frame.
You can also combine your diamond wedding ring with a bangle bracelet, also set (or not) with diamonds. For example, the Battement de Coeur collection has a wide choice of wedding bands in white gold or pink gold set with diamonds that can be perfectly matched with a bangle bracelet, chain or with another jewel such as a necklace or earrings. 'ears.
The diamond is the stone of marriage par excellence. In fact, this stone of exceptional brilliance is just as attractive as a paving around a ring as it is set in the heart of a solitaire. As for each jewel, the size of the diamond as well as its number of carats will influence the price of the alliance or the final ring. Maison Bäumer offers a wide choice of wedding rings, set with diamonds or other colored stones such as emerald, ruby or sapphire.
The diamond perfectly follows the lines of your jewel. In paving, diamonds can be set around the circumference of your ring (paving) or only on the half-circle (semi-paving). In this sense, the price of a semi-paving will necessarily be lower than a complete paving.

How to take care of your white gold wedding ring?
Gold, whether white, pink, black or yellow, is a noble and precious metal, sought after for its incomparable brilliance, durability and quality. However, this metal can tarnish over time and requires special care and maintenance. Indeed, daily activities such as household chores, dust and other elements affect the brilliance of the gold and the sparkle of the stones by dirtying them and deteriorating the polishing.
Note that you should never clean gold jewelry with products intended for cleaning silver because it is not the same metal. In addition, it will damage the rhodium plating of the white gold. Other elements are to be avoided such as perfume which contains alcohol which can damage the metal, lacquer or abrasive products such as bleach and detergents.
If your white gold ring is adorned with gemstones, you will need to adapt your cleaning method. Indeed, the emerald and the pearl are fragile stones that do not support hot water. Also, products that leave a greasy film are not recommended for cleaning diamonds. Indeed, they risk tarnishing them. Generally, hot water with dishwashing liquid or Marseille soap are the most used and effective techniques.
What is the difference between platinum and white gold?
Platinum is often confused with white gold because they have a similar appearance. However, platinum, unlike white gold, is a naturally white metal. However, its price is more expensive and its weight is heavier than that of white gold. In addition, this metal being denser, it is more difficult to work but has a higher quality. Thus, platinum is often preferred for wedding rings while white gold will be used all the more for engagement rings. White gold has a brighter, whiter hue.
