History of yellow gold engagement rings
Since the origins of the engagement ring, yellow gold has been one of the most commonly used metal types for the meaningful piece of jewellery. Traditionally, these yellow gold rings took the form of simple bands. However, as styles and interpretations of the ring changed over time, other styles began to emerge, including engraved rings, signet rings and diamond and gemstone decorated designs.
The discovery of other metal types and advancement in technology saw the emergence of alternative options, including platinum and white gold engagement rings. Although, yellow gold has remained an incredibly popular choice, particularly for its rich history and tradition, which is ideal for classic and timeless styles or vintage inspired designs.
Why choose a yellow gold engagement ring?
Yellow gold is a popular metal choice for engagement rings for a number of reasons. Some of the most significance benefits include:

- Allure - yellow gold possesses an allure which no other metal type has. The warm glow eludes a sense of luxury and sophistication
- Diverse - the warm tone of yellow gold pairs perfectly with white diamonds, as well as warmer toned gemstones, or emeralds, sapphires and rubies for a vintage inspired design

Caring for a yellow gold engagement ring
In order to keep the beautiful allure of a yellow gold ring intact, it needs to be cared for in a very particular way. The metal type is one of the softest, so it is possible for scratches and dents to appear if the ring is knocked or worn during hands on tasks. Therefore, it is always recommended that a yellow gold engagement ring is removed and stored safely when carrying out any labour heavy work, or when handling harsh chemicals.
To ensure the golden glow of an engagement ring is protected, it is important that pieces are regularly serviced, cleaned and polished by a specialist jeweller. As well as keeping the metal looking its best, the jeweller will also be able to check that diamonds and stones are secure and in good condition.
