In the process of getting an engagement ring made to propose to the girl. One of the choices I've got to make is the metal. I know I want a white metal and the maker I've chosen to go with has 9ct or 18ct white gold, Platinum and Palladium as options. Was leaning towards platinum or palladium but then came across a thread on Reddit with some (purported) jewellers/goldsmith's chiming in and they seemed to universally hate platinum/palladium and prefer white gold. Anyone know anything about it? Pros and cons? I'll keep doing my own research of course but I wouldn't be surprised to find someone on here knows a thing or two about it; knowledge worth tapping into if it's there! Cheers guys.
