Can engagement rings be gold?
Finding your significant other may be a difficult task, but buying an engagement ring she’ll love is quite a challenge for some as well. When it comes to choosing an engagement ring, there are virtually unlimited options catering to all tastes and styles.
Choosing the best metal for an engagement ring could be a lot easier if one knew all the possible options available. The most popular available options that we have seen in the last couple of years are white gold, platinum or diamond engagement rings as gold engagement rings were out of fashion. Most people aren’t even aware that engagement rings could be in gold as well. After two decades of platinum and diamond rings dominating wedding jewellery, yellow gold and rose gold is back.
Gold engagement rings were standard from the 1960s to 1980s but by the ‘90s gold wedding jewellery had fallen out of favour possibly because gold simply may have been deemed too flashy for the time. The ’90s wiped out yellow gold and rose gold engagement rings, but now they’re back and it seems like they are to stay.
Gold comes in many colours, making it easy to mix and match. You could wear an engagement ring in rose gold or yellow gold. Yellow gold is made of pure gold mixed with alloy metals such as copper and zinc. The quantity of pure gold in the jewellery depends on its karat age. In the UK we use 18k whereas in Canada and the US 14k is commonly found.
Rose gold is made of pure gold mixed with copper and silver alloys. Rose gold is real but it’s not made entirely of gold and the more copper used, the redder the gold appears. Don’t forget to check out our 18k rose gold ring collection for the most unique designs. Custom made engagement rings are also available where the ring is designed as per your taste and liking.
