Well, to understand that one has to primarily understand a bit about what is white gold. White gold jewellery is quite often confused with Rhodium plated jewels due to the similarity in their finishes. When certain white metals are combined with gold leading to a change in its original appearance from yellow to a whitish hue, this is white gold. White gold in other words is a combination of gold along with white metals like nickel, silver, or palladium. Just like yellow gold, the purity of white gold is also measured in karats. Therefore, the higher the content of gold, the higher is the Karat count.
The properties of white gold depend majorly on the properties of other metals and the proportions in which they have been combined with yellow gold. White gold chains and other jewels are typically made from a gold-palladium-silver alloy or a gold-nickel-copper-zinc alloy. Nickel.
White gold chains are made generally from the non-nickel alloy since nickel sometimes causes allergic reactions and rashes. This is also the reason why white gold with nickel content is looked down upon amongst most jewellers and isn’t acceptable in the majority of countries.



There is no plain Yes or No answer to this in particular. It totally depends on how much you are comfortable spending along with the experience that you are looking for.
Technically speaking, the higher the Karat, the higher is the content of Yellow gold. Also, the White gold chain with higher Karat is softer than the one with lower Karat count since gold increases malleability.



One can calculate the content of yellow gold in a chain easily by dividing the number of karats in which the chain has been made to the highest number of Karats possible. For instance, an 18ct white gold necklace chain contains approximately 75% yellow gold, 18 divided by 24.

Both, the thickness and the length of the white gold chain you choose to buy depend entirely on your personal taste, preference and budget. If you choose to go with thicker chains, the weight of white gold increases along with the price.
We would suggest you first decide on how much are you willing to spend and further narrow down the ways you would want to style your white gold chains. Once you know the ways you want to wear them, it is going to be easy for you to pick the desired length and design. For instance, if you want to wear the chain along with a pendant, make sure the chain thickness and design are such that it can hold your pendant without damaging itself. On the other hand, if you would like to carry these chains independently without a pendant, you should pick a thin and delicate white gold chain design, if yours is a minimalistic style or else a thicker one for a bold classic touch.
