White gold is an alloy of gold and at least one white metal, usually nickel or palladium. Like yellow gold, the purity of white gold is given in carats: 24 kt is pure gold, 18 kt has 18 parts gold and 6 parts of another metal, so it is 75% pure.

Since nickel is cheaper than gold this white (alloy) gold is cheaper than the yellow pure variant. The price of palladium is unknown to me, so I can't figure it out.

Your gold choice color is a matter of preference. White gold is enjoying greater popularity right now and may sometimes be more expensive, but this is really more a matter of demand and what sellers know they can get.

Also, pure gold is too soft not to combine it with other metals for strength.
