The traditional jewellery colour, yellow gold, has recently regained popularity as one of the most-loved metals for engagement rings. Engagement rings with yellow gold settings are trending and while they’re timeless, they also carry a unique edge. The warm hue of yellow gold is created by combining pure gold with metals such as zinc and copper, making it a flattering option for gold jewellery wearers.
The return of yellow gold
For centuries, yellow gold has been a go-to metal for its hard-wearing qualities with many yellow gold heirlooms lasting for multiple generations. Although rather malleable in nature, yellow gold engagement rings are durable and rarely lose their shine over the years. This is one of the reasons why they are making a comeback in the bridal jewellery market.
In addition to its longevity, yellow gold is versatile and matches well with many varieties of stone. Complementing everything from diamonds to sapphires, there is a reason why yellow gold engagement rings have stood the test of time.
Choosing your yellow gold engagement ring
If you have decided to design your own yellow gold engagement ring or are interested in choosing one of our unique styles, keep in mind that when it comes to gold, the higher the carat, the less durable the metal becomes. For this reason, we usually suggest going with 14 or 18 karat yellow gold engagement rings.
Let our jewellery experts help you bring the engagement ring of your dreams to life or customise one of our existing designs. From the stone type to shape, karat, clarity and colour, you’re able to completely personalise our high-quality rings for your special person.
