Rose Gold Rings For The Romantics
In addition to being one of the hottest trends in jewelry, rose gold is also very romantic. Many people refer to it as romantic gold because of the pinkish coloring. Although rose gold is often used in vintage inspired engagement rings, modern halo settings also look gorgeous in rose gold. Copper is used in an alloy with pure gold to create this romantic ring metal, and it’s the perfect choice for a passionate proposal. Additionally, rose gold rings are flattering to nearly every skin tone, and they really pop with the glow of a diamond.
The Classic Yellow Gold Solitaire
If your bride to be is more of a traditionalist, then nothing beats a classic yellow gold solitaire. These engagement rings are iconic for good reason because they have been popular since engagement rings became popular. In addition to the stunning yellow gold color, solitaire rings prominently feature the center diamond. When selecting the right ring metal for your holiday proposal, consider yellow gold for a classic look, especially if you are going to pair it with a large round diamond in the center.
Platinum’s Modern Elegance
While still not quite as popular as rose gold, platinum’s rise in recent years is remarkable. Widely known as one of the most rare precious metals, platinum has plenty of luxurious features. The shiny luster of platinum does not need the same rhodium plating as white gold. This means that platinum will forever retain its white shine without requiring additional maintenance. Finally, a major benefit for many fans of platinum is the weight of the ring. This provides another sense of luxury, which makes platinum engagement rings the best choice for an elegant holiday proposal.
