XP - White gold vs. platinum

FI and I are about to get our wedding bands. His will be a plain 5mm, and I'm having a 4mm sprinkled with scattered diamonds, based on the look of Etienne Perret's "starlight" bands --

BUT ... I can't decide whether to get white gold or platinum! The more I read about the "advantages" of each, the more confused I become.

Considerations: I have a very active lifestyle, with lots of sports and outdoor activities, so I worry about scratches. Swim 3 times/week in a chlorinated pool, so I worry about chemicals. I like low-maintenance, unfussy things, so worry about rhodium-redipping. Etc.

Opinions? Suggestions? What are your rings made of and how do you like the metal? Does it work with your lifestyle?

Don't you think you guys should maybe switch beds?? IMG_2501 Wedding Countdown Ticker
