How to buy yellow gold engagement rings
Your guide to finding the yellow gold engagement ring meant just for you.
Yellow gold is considered the most classic metal hue; so a vintage-inspired engagement ring in yellow gold will have a look of timeless elegance and tradition. Favorite vintage-inspired engagement rings in yellow gold include the Toi et Moi, the Signature V, and the Three Stone. Choose your favorite VRAI created diamond shapes for a look true to your style.
An Emerald cut diamond is the oldest diamond cut in the world. When paired with this classic hue, an Emerald cut engagement ring in yellow gold becomes a future heirloom to be passed down for generations to come. Best-selling yellow gold Emerald cut engagement rings include the Signature Solitaire, the Signature Bezel, and the Floating Solitaire. Add pavé details to the band for a slight twist on tradition.
Just because yellow gold is traditional doesn’t mean it can’t stand out. Those looking for unique engagement rings in yellow gold should search for hidden diamond details or a variation on timeless settings. The Floating Split Band is a perfect example of this with pavé-set VRAI created diamonds on the split band and underneath the center stone. The East-West Signature highlights your favorite diamond shape in a non-traditional way while the Halo Dome adds layers of extra brilliance to a vintage-inspired style.
Halo engagement rings in yellow gold are a popular choice for highlighting both the metal color and brilliance of added diamonds. For a timeless look, consider Round Brilliant or Oval cut diamonds at the center. Pear and Marquise cut diamonds add a vintage-inspired twist while the clean and geometric edges of Emerald, Princess, or Radiant cut diamonds are spotlighted by this setting.
Frequently asked questions about yellow gold engagement rings
An 18k yellow gold ring is made from 18 parts pure solid gold and 6 parts alloys. This differentiates it from a 14k gold ring which is made of 14 parts pure solid gold and 10 parts alloys. 18k yellow gold is considered more precious than 14k gold, making it ideal for an engagement ring or wedding ring.
VRAI uses solid gold, never plated or vermeil, so your 18k solid yellow gold engagement ring will not fade or tarnish over time. You should clean your diamond ring on a regular basis, however, to maintain its shine. VRAI also offers annual cleaning in its Lifetime Care Package.
Yellow gold engagement rings are the most popular or best-selling engagement rings. This is because yellow gold is the color most associated with gold itself — making these styles timelessly appealing to all.
Of course! While many choose matching wedding rings to the engagement ring color, a way of creating a bold and dramatic wedding ring set is to mix metal colors. This look is especially popular amongst those who already feature both yellow and white gold in their fine jewelry collection.
