When shopping for your dream engagement ring there are many factors to take into consideration, one of the first of which is the metal. Throughout history, gold has remained a popular option, although the particular hue has changed with the times.
Nowadays, white gold is the most popular overall, but yellow and rose gold are lovely options for the trendy bride to consider.
Rich in color and traditional in style, yellow gold is an option that looks exceptionally beautiful against olive and darker skin tones. This metal pairs well with both modern and vintage style settings, and is a lovely option for the bride who is interested in adding colored stones to her engagement ring. Both rubies and yellow diamonds look lovely with yellow gold.
Created by combining a white metal – like nickel – to yellow gold, white gold is a bit more durable than its warm hued counterpart. Cool and sophisticated, white gold looks stunning against fair and rosy skin tones.
We also love the look of white gold when partnered with sapphires, emeralds and aquamarine.
The most unique of the three gold options, rose gold is elegant, romantic and completely one-of-a-kind. Rose gold has grown in popularity in recent years, with stars like Blake Lively, Naya Rivera and Hayden Panettiere sporting this radiant hue on their left ring fingers.
This lustrous metal looks beautiful against all skin tones, and we think it looks especially wonderful in a vintage setting.
