34 Yellow Gold Engagement Rings
For years it felt like you could only get your engagement ring in white gold or platinum, but thanks to a recent resurgence, more and more brides-to-be are opting for the sunnier shade of yellow gold for their big-day bling. The warmer-hued metal is perfect for brides who gravitate toward the more saturated side of the spectrum, and tend to wear their everyday jewels set in yellow and rose gold. A classic setting choice that offers a serious style statement, going for this gilded alloy for your engagement ring's setting will bring a smile to your face for decades to come.
While yellow gold is definitely a statement-maker, plenty of timeless solitaires are offered in yellow gold. Popular halos and a sleek pavé band look great in yellow gold, too. Many vintage rings are offered in yellow gold, with decorative elements like filigrees and different gemstones dotting the band for an exciting finish. Super modern takes on this classic metal choice are either thicker bands with an all-gold halo or bezel-set stones with a sleek plain yellow gold band. If you're looking for a gemstone or colorful diamond ring, yellow gold is the perfect complement to a champagne or yellow diamond. And if you're nervous that yellow gold might be too bright for your engagement ring (you shouldn't be!), know that the shade actually flatters every skin tone.
For an even trendier look, go for a mixed-metal style or opt for a wedding band in a different gold hue. Plus, have we mentioned yellow gold tends to be more budget-friendly? You can thank us later. Click through to see some of our most favorite yellow gold engagement rings!
