    Default Mixing/melting yellow and white gold (18ct)

    Hi everyone. Just a quick one!


    I have a customer who has a 18ct yellow gold ring which is sentimental and wants to use it in a new ring. However she prefers white gold. I know I could just rhodium plate over, but know this will need more upkeep than white gold which is rhodium plated.


    If I had for example 3 grams of her 18ct yellow gold ring, would I have to add in a considerable amount of white gold to even out the colour? Has anyone done this before?

    Thanks in advance to any help!

    Well you could add silver to reduce it to 9ct white gold with only a slight yellow cast.
    Personally I'm not a fan of the rhodium colour, and as you say it will need re-doing when it becomes unsightly from wear.
