Please forgive my ignorance! A local jewelry store has these cute stacking rings, some just diamonds, some with gemstones, and I'd love to have some stackers for a RHR. However, they are all 10k gold. When I noticed that, I kind of stopped wanting them. A few months later and I'm now noticing my 18k gold rings have turned ever so slightly yellow over the years, and I wore a ring of my mother's that was 10k gold to make sure I'm not allergic to the nickel. The 18k gold turning a bit yellow doesn't bother me at all, but the 10k having more alloys would keep them whiter longer, right? Is 10k really "bad"? The rings are pretty cheap and the store often has sales, esp. for the birthstone months, and Sept. (sapphire) is coming up.
