Hi everyone, another newbie-ish question about white gold. I purchased 1.5mm white gold wire from cookson for some stack rings. As it was my first attempt I bought some smaller solder amounts off ebay (cooksons starting price is around 50 and I didn't need that much). However soldering the ring, it seems the solder temperature of whatever I bought was much higher and the ring ends basically started to melt onto themselves whilst the solder remained unchanged.

Without it obviously being fraudulent metal (seemed a genuine goldsmith seller, chasing this up with them now) I just wondered if anyone had any ideas or could help me out regarding working with 9ct white gold and what went wrong?

Kind regards x
