by Jade » Dec 11, 2000 Hi:I have two questions:1). I am still debating about purchasing a white gold band or a plantium. I know the differences between both and white gold is more affordable. But is white gold just as good as a 14K gold? One jeweler said white gold is more durable than a 14K and another jeweler said that white gold can easily lose its color and shine.2). Do you think this diamond is a good price for a GIA, color F for $1,700. Shape: Round Brilliant Measurements: 5.24x5.27x 3.15 mmm Weight: 0.52 carat Depth: 59.9% Table: 62% Girdle: Medium Culet:none Clarity: SI 1As always, I appreciate all your valuable comments.
