Today, engagement rings are commonly seen in platinum or white gold, and so when one appears in a different metal, it naturally turns heads. The Engagement & Jewelry Study 2015 found that 12% of brides would choose yellow gold for an engagement ring and, while it’s not the right choice for everyone, for those that want an unusual take on the traditional, yellow gold can provide a stunning alternative. In fact, Brides magazine suggests that yellow gold is experiencing a major comeback this year – just ask Oscar winner Halle Berry, who chose yellow gold for her ring from Olivier Martinez.
For some of our picks, the yellow gold provides a more vintage look, while for others, it adds a more contemporary twist. The common element is that they’re all stunning, and just waiting for the right person to say ‘I do’!
The diamond in this ring is set in an open cathedral style shank, seen by some as the very definition of the classic engagement ring style. The six prongs ensure a firm grip on the diamond, while the four diamonds placed in the head of the ring are a delightful surprise for anyone taking a closer look (and trust us, people will want to take a closer look at this ring!).
The open profile view of the diamond and the split style shank on this ring leaves no room for misinterpreting where the star of the show is! If you want the diamond to be front and center, this is the ring for you.
This ring proves that beauty doesn’t have to cost a fortune. A classic take on the engagement ring, it features Round Brilliant Diamond melee and an exquisite center stone, creating an overall sparkle that she will love.
If this ring was in platinum, the diamonds would be the sole focal point, but chosen in yellow gold it becomes something else entirely. While the center diamond, pave halo and French set diamonds on the band offer eye-catching sparkle, the yellow gold both adds to and accentuates the overall style of this beautiful ring.
This Tacori classic holds the diamond aloft with six secure prongs, while the stones at the side add a little something special to the overall result. It’s a beautiful ring, perfect for the classic bride-to-be.
This three stone, braided ring conjures up visions of fairy tales, and a truly bold heart winning a fair maiden. The Round Cut Brilliant Cut Diamond Melee on the shoulder leading up to the main event stones further enhances its fairy tale sparkle.
This is one of our signature designs, combining the sleek profile of the solitaire setting, with our own A CUT ABOVE® Hearts and Arrows Diamond Melee
. These diamonds are small but mighty – each stone has 57 perfectly aligned facets, ensuring the absolute maximum amount of sparkle!
This ring exudes both vintage charm and contemporary style. For us, the crown of spotlight enhancers are what makes the center diamond sing, but there’s so much to love about this ring it’s difficult to pick a favorite feature!
This beautiful Danhov ring has diamonds stretching as far as the eye can see! The diamond pavé stretches all the way to the underside of the band, and combined with the unusual pavé seen when in profile underneath the halo, this ring packs some seriously sparkling impact.
