Classic gold engagement rings are making a comeback. See which hue and style are trending these days.
About gold engagement rings
While platinum and white-gold rings are still a crowd-favourite, more brides are getting drawn to the classic gold. From shiny styles to matte finishes, gold engagement rings are quickly reclaiming the spotlight.
Yellow gold and rose gold are not only getting popular in the engagement ring category, but they are also becoming a favourite in everyday jewellery like stackable rings and layered necklaces. The trend is a result of the retro and vintage style’s return to the fashion world.
Whether your taste skews classic or contemporary, a yellow-gold or Halo engagement ring will look impeccable on you.
Is yellow gold for you?
If you are attracted to classic diamond shapes like pear, oval, emerald-cut and cushion-cut, a yellow gold setting will amp up the vintage vibe of the engagement ring.
You can also take the classic look a step further by choosing a colourful gemstone such as a sapphire or a fancy-coloured diamond, which another huge trend nowadays. For a more antique look, you can opt for a raw, rustic, or rough-cut diamond.
For those who are going for a British royal-inspired look, a deep blue sapphire in a yellow gold setting is a regal choice.
Is rose gold for you?
Feminine and romantic, rose gold is not only beautiful but also very durable (more so than yellow-gold or white-gold). It’s also surprisingly affordable and offers a vintage appeal.
There are a few options when it comes to the colour intensity that falls under the ‘rose gold’ umbrella, including red and pink gold. If you are planning to get a bespoke ring, just remember that the more copper in the mix, the redder the ring will be.
