Gold Engagement Rings: Warm and Beautiful

For ages, gold was the metal everyone wanted for engagement rings and wedding bands. Gold engagement rings are the first thing you think of when you think “proposal.” The way it shimmers and catches the light, the way the sparkle lights up her eyes, the way it offers a perfect setting for a diamond. Gold engagement rings are so versatile that they can work with almost every budget, and every wish list.

Gold engagement rings are an excellent choice for many reasons. One being that gold is hypo-allergenic. People with skin allergies can wear gold rings without worry of rashes or reactions. Another reason gold is such a good choice is because it is less-expensive than many other metals available, and there are different levels of gold that fit into any budget. 24 carat is pure gold, but it also comes in 18, 14, or 10 carat. The lower the carat, the higher percentage of other metals is in the band. Other metals are often added to make the gold more durable and scratch-resistant. Pure gold is soft, but adding nickel, copper, or silver makes it harder and stronger.

Yellow gold engagement rings are warm. No other metal can make a diamond stand out and sparkle the way a gold setting can. Yellow gold can really make a single solitaire diamond pop. But if the love of your life prefers white metals, white gold is also an option. White gold is not found in nature; it has been combined with other white metals to give it a stronger, more durable band as well as giving it a platinum appearance. Sometimes white gold is mixed with silver, or nickel, or palladium, and sometimes it is mixed with platinum. White gold engagement rings can make other precious gems, like emeralds, rubies, or sapphires, really dazzle.

Gold engagement rings are traditional and beautiful, but they can have a modern twist to them as well. They are safe for those with skin allergies, and more budget-friendly than many of the other metals. Gold engagement rings make any diamond stand out and shine, rendering her speechless and full of joy.
