Gold is an excellent choice for engagement rings
When we think of gold, what first comes to mind is a precious metal with a warm metallic yellow glow. It's no wonder because engagement and wedding rings were made only of yellow gold for a very long time. Only in the last century did the white gold and platinum variants become popular. Each precious metal has its beauty, but yellow gold engagement rings continue to rule the engagement ring universe.
In your quest for the perfect engagement ring, you will find that a large selection of rings is made in yellow gold because even today, yellow gold is a popular choice for engagement rings.
Five reasons to love yellow gold engagement rings
Engagement rings crafted in yellow gold are loved for many reasons.
Valuable: As it is a purer form of gold that comes without any rhodium coating, yellow gold of the same karatage is more valuable than white gold, rose gold or gold-plated versions
Forever: Gold engagement rings will literally last forever
Beautiful and lustrous: Gold engagement rings have a classic beauty and a timeless appeal. Yellow gold settings show off gemstones of contrasting hues to their best advantage
Hypoallergenic: Gold is an inert noble metal that is hypoallergenic
Unique: Designer yellow gold engagement rings are handcrafted, unique, elegant, and matchless. And we doubt they will ever become dated
Gold engagement ring hallmarking
Karats (k) express the purity of gold in 24 parts of the metal used to make the ring. Pure gold is 24k, but it is too soft to be made into durable jewelry. It is therefore alloyed with other metals such as copper and silver to make it stronger.
To be sure that the gold engagement ring you choose will stand the test of time, look for the karat stamp on gold items. 22k (916), 18k (750) or 14k (585) are typical gold hallmarks on solid gold jewelry. You can search for gold engagement rings on our platform by their karatage.
The table below shows the percentage of gold to other metals for different purities/karats.
Solid gold hallmarking explained
|999 / 24k
|916 / 22k
|750 / 18k
|585 / 14k
|375 / 9k
Solid gold engagement rings range in purity from 9k to 22k. The higher the number of karats, the greater the percentage of pure gold and the higher its value and cost. So, a 9k gold engagement ring will cost less than an 18k one made in the same size and design. But both are equally valuable as they are made of solid gold alloys, unlike gold-plated rings with only a surface coating.
Types of designer gold engagement rings
As you browse our collection of gold engagement rings, you will see a wide array of styles and designs. Your final selection is a matter of personal choice, and as long as you and your fiancée are happy with the ring design and style, nothing else matters.
Plain gold engagement rings
While the most popular gold engagement rings are set with diamonds or other precious and semi-precious gemstones, there is no rule that an engagement ring cannot be made only of plain, solid gold. If it is a simple, solid gold engagement ring you are looking for, then all you need is to decide on the design.
May we suggest an 18k gold engagement ring featuring a lover’s knot to symbolise the eternal bond and special connection between you and your lady love? A simple gold band engagement ring with handcrafted fine filigree work or double bands or floating bands with engraved promises are beautiful options too.
Diamond and gold engagement rings
The best-loved engagement ring gem remains the diamond. Associated with lifelong love, this magnificent gemstone rules gold engagement ring styles. Gold rings set with diamonds have come to represent a pure and steadfast love that lasts forever. Any woman would love a prong-set solitaire diamond ring made of warm yellow gold—this continues to be the best-loved design for engagement rings.
Quality of diamonds in a gold diamond engagement ring
Diamonds differ in quality and price based on the 4 Cs: Cut, Clarity, Colour, and Carat (ct.) weight. An authentic gold and diamond engagement ring always comes with a certificate— diamonds are graded according to the 4 Cs and certified whether they are natural/mined or lab-grown. We are proud to host several designers on our platform who use only conflict-free, traceable, sustainable, or ethically produced diamonds.
Shapes, colours and settings for gold diamond engagement rings
♦ Gold engagement rings also differ according to the shape of the diamond in them; the best-known are round-brilliant, princess and cushion cut (square), emerald-cut (rectangular), ovals, and pear-shaped cuts.
♦ Diamonds come in all colours of the spectrum. However, pale to dark yellow champagne and golden brown cognac diamonds are typically chosen for yellow gold engagement rings. Vivid blue, red, yellow and pink diamonds are rare and most expensive.
♦ Diamond engagement rings in gold come in several beautiful settings such as prong, bezel, pavé, channel, etc.
Gold and gemstone engagement rings
There is no rule that an engagement ring must be set with diamonds. Engagement rings set with precious and semi-precious gems are also popular. Coloured gemstones stand out when combined with diamonds and yellow gold.
♥ You could surprise your wife-to-be with an engagement ring set with her birthstone or a particular gem she likes
♥ A gold engagement ring set with a sapphire, ruby, or emerald—the three most admired prescious gemstones—in the centre surrounded or flanked by diamonds is a trendy design made famous by royalty and celebrities
