White gold: an email quote may be provided for this design in 14K or 18K palladium white gold (nickel free). Traditional white gold contains nickel which I do not work with in my studio. Please note that palladium is in the platinum family and is the alloy used in palladium white gold (instead of nickel which is what is used in tradtional white gold—nickel is a common metal allergy as well as carcinogenic to work with). Palladium white gold is more expensive than yellow or rose of the same karat, but is a much safer choice for both you, the wearer, and me, the maker.
