White gold refers to an alloy of pure yellow gold and other metals, such as zinc, to make the mixture harder. The characteristics of white gold differ depending upon the metal and the percentage of it used. The metal that is mixed with white gold determines the purpose for which it will be used. Platinum is a lustrous silver-white metal which is the most ductile among the pure metals but less malleable than gold. It is used extensively for jewellery as well as for vehicles. While platinum is naturally white, white gold is mixed with zinc to make it look whiter instead of yellow. Also, white gold is lighter in weight than platinum. Although both the precious metals are durable as well as strong, platinum is considered to be greater in strength and durability. However, despite the durability, platinum is more susceptible to scratches and with time these scratches accumulate to produce a natural patina on the object, making it look desirable and distinctive. Being a rare metal, platinum is usually more expensive than white gold.
