Lustrium or White Gold?

I'm working on desiging my class ring, and I was wondering, what should I have it made of? White Lustrium or White Gold?


Can anyone with a ring made of either [or even rings made of both] give some input, maybe some pros and cons of each metal? I kind of want Lustrium for its price, but White Gold is nicer looking, and more precious.


So, can anyone help me?

Re: Lustrium or White Gold?

I think Lustrium is cheaper and looks as ~10kt gold. On another pros side, white Lustrium has the luster of white gold, but it doesn't tarnish.

Re: Lustrium or White Gold?

Does it really look like 10k white gold? I can never find a decent picture to compare it with white gold.

Re: Lustrium or White Gold?

I would go with the white gold if you have metal allergies (nickel, ect).

Also, white gold will hold up longer and won't need cleaning as much due to the fact that it is made with a precious metal.

Re: Lustrium or White Gold?

My sister had Lustrium, and I have gold. The gold is better in quality. Her's started to warp only after a few months of wearing it. Of course, it was feminine and the band was thin, so it probably warped much easier. My best friend has a lustrium ring, but her's is thicker. As far as I know, it hasn't warped, but then again, she's never mentioned it.

However, mine is still looking shiny, hasn't warped nor bent, is very feminine in its shape, and is in great quality. Obviously, you don't have to worry about thin bands because you're a guy, but still. =)

(This is why I want gold wedding bands. *cough*)

Re: Lustrium or White Gold?

D: Yeah, seriously, don't go with the lustrium. That stuff is seriously corrosive and won't last you more than a few years, no matter how hard you try to take care of it.

The white gold will go a bit dull over time, since I'm assuming it's got a layer of rhodium for shine, but it won't be bad.

As long as you're not allergic to nickel, the white gold is definitely the way to go. :3

Re: Lustrium or White Gold?

Alright, I've made up my mind. I'm gonna spring for the extra 200 bucks or so and get white gold =3.


That's pretty much the only reason I made the thread, my mom will pay 300 towards my ring, and I hafta pay what's left. Getting white gold is gonna kick it up to around 500-600, but from the sounds of it, it's gonna be worth it.

Re: Lustrium or White Gold?

D: 600$ for a class ring?

Darn, boyo, I sure hope that ring wipes your butt for you after you s***. It better do something else besides sit on your finger, at least. D:

... I'm a huge jew, if you can't tell. I got pissed off when I had to pay $100 for my wedding. ;_;

Re: Lustrium or White Gold?

I know, I'm a huge jew too, that's why I was gonna go with lustrium.


Everything is so pricey now >_<

Re: Lustrium or White Gold?

Andi, you jerk. You didn't even invite me to go to your wedding and be all like "DAWWWWH!" But $600? Holy crap! My parents bought me mine after I repeatedly told them I didn't want it. Do you think I could pawn this thing off for a wedding dress? I'd much rather have one of those. >.>

Re: Lustrium or White Gold?

I like White Gold. It's just a personal preference but if I had a choice between the two, I'de go for white gold.

Re: Lustrium or White Gold?

I just wish the pdf file didn't kill the cut of the gem, that's my favorite part. The sunburst looks cool.
