WhiteFlash 18k White Gold Classic 4 Prong Soliatire Engagement Ring with Platinum Head

For those who know their other half's ring size, do consider this 18k White Gold Classic 4 Prong Soliatire Engagement Ring with Platinum Head.

Now, this ring is certainly special because it has a platinum head! I have never come across a platinum head mixed with 18k white gold body ring before in Malaysia. The benefit of having a platinum head is definitely the added security of holding the diamond firmly in place. 

Not that 18k white gold won't hold the diamond firmly, but platinum is more malleable and less brittle when compared to 18k white gold, this means, if you ever knock your ring against something, the chances for the head to break off and loose the diamond is lower compared to 18k white gold.

The ring is pretty solid too, based on the information provided below:

So with a width of at least 1.9mm, this ring is certainly a solid looking one. Just check with the brick-and-mortar jewellers and see what width they provide, I believe most of them cannot compete in terms of width. Of course, this is just my own opinion and my experience, so take it with a pinch of salt. If you ever come across a good jeweller that does solid rings, do share with us all! ;) Perhaps I should check with WhiteFlash team and see if their width is surely that thick. Get back to you guys again. ;)

Now, you are not able to buy this ring as a standalone setting so you need to pair it with a diamond. Also, don't be bothered by the carat size limitations because there are some actual pictures that are paired with 30-pointers (0.30 - 0.39 carat).

Now, at the price of USD 460.75, this translates to 1893.75 on MoneyMatch's site:

Now, add on 6% GST, the price will be RM 2007.28. There are also some slight misc. charges, which include GST on freight and insurance. The charges will be pretty small, so I will just round up the figure to RM 2020.00.

Now, at RM 2020.00, you will get a solid (to be confirmed) ring that is most likely made in US presumed.Not that made in Malaysia is no good, but if that is true, then made in US sounds not too bad either! ;) Moreover, you will get a platinum head!

Of course, there is a cheaper version that is crafted using 14k white gold instead, check it out here:

From what  know, 14k is pretty normal in the US and rings made out of this alloy should feel more solid than 18k white gold because less gold is used in the alloy. FYI, gold is a malleable material so using lesser may actually make the ring feel more solid. The downside of it is 14k white gold is more brittle, so it may be easier to crack compared to its 18k white gold sibling. But then, as long as the wearer takes good care of it, I think it is a pretty good alternative, right?

Oh, by the way, do you know that there is this 18k yellow gold mixed with platinum head as well?:

Not too bad, eh?
