7 Glamorous Gold Engagement Rings

Due to changing trends, yellow gold often comes across as a more classic and traditional metal for engagement ring settings. Of course, there was a time when it was the trendy choice and the silver hues of white gold and platinum were considered the old-fashion style. Such is the cyclical nature of fashion. In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if yellow gold takes over rose gold as the hottest metal in jewelry in the next few years. In fact, while some brides embrace yellow gold for its classic appearance by wearing round solitaire diamonds on a simple band, others go for the juxtaposition of modern and traditional – pairing a unique or on-trend design with the warmth of a yellow gold ring. 

The below rings showcase the different ways yellow gold can be used in your wedding jewelry, and they were all worn in real weddings. Click each photo to see the rest of these celebrations, and get further inspiration by browsing through our wedding jewelry gallery
