Could you elaborate on the difference you see btw the VCA whitw gold vs platinum? I dont have any platinum pieces so i am just very curious.. i feel like white gold is brighter, whiter than platinum although i have had non VCA white gold ring that need re-rhodiuming after 8 yrs of extensive wesring, but so far, i find VCA white gold the nicest, in comparison with Cartier and coco crush but i dont have that much pieces to compare withI don’t like white gold. It’s a poor imitation of platinum. I have a few white gold pieces, and every single one of them I wish were in platinum.
Ironically, vintage Van Cleef and Cartier diamond jewelry is more readily available in platinum. But everything contemporary from these two brands is basically nonexistent in platinum. I don’t wear my white gold pieces very often, because I can’t stand it when the plating starts to wear off.
I bought the VCA 2020 holiday pendant with the white gold guilloche, and when I put it next to my platinum pieces in my white metal section, I sigh. Will VCA ever introduce Alhambra in platinum? Like… I’m waiting.
