My DF and I are currently planning our wedding - but as yet he hasn't properly proposed because we haven't picked a ring out yet. We were looking yesterday and found one or two styles I liked for him to choose from. We showed them to my mum, who was being very nosey, and she flipped out because all the styles were in white gold and not platinum. She says white gold fades very quickly and looks tacky - so we should go for platinum. And that any man who won't buy you platinum isn't really in love with you (that just made DF cos we can't afford platinum at the minute - she says wait and delay the wedding until he can afford it!) So does anyone know - does white gold fade? And if so how quickly? Cos DF is now afraid of spending a small fortune on a white gold ring for it to look off-colour in a years time.
