The future of the Yellow Gold Engagement Ring.

99

Yellow Gold Engagement rings have unfortunately been on the decline for many years now. The jewellery industry has done very well adapting to the demand of different trend settings by the consumer. It seems the diamond has become more important to the purchaser and wearer, rather than the precious metal holding the beautiful sparkling rock. And why not? The diamond is the more expensive part of the purchase.

Metals such as Platinum and Palladium are seen to make the diamond on each engagement ring stand out and show off the stone to its full clarity and colour. Although this is true and the wearer receives more Bling for their hard earned Ching. Could this trend phase out? promoting yellow Gold to come back and take lead in the jewellery market once again?

Maybe so, especially with the price of Gold steadily rising and becoming ever more costly. The nature of something becoming unaffordable, unattainable and possibly unattractive can lead to it becoming the new NOW!.

We human types love to have something that no one else has, or is very different. Its in our nature to seek out something distinctive and that stands out from the crowd. Gold can come in many arrays of different colours, which maybe in the times to come, be the new highly sought after diamond ring type.

We have messed about with different coloured Gold rings, using our Jewellery Photography techniques that go well with diamonds. Could this be the future of the engagement ring? They look different and to be fair interesting. Have your say and leave us a comment.

  1. Interesting article and images. I like the potential gold colours. Is this achievable? although colours like could be seen to cheapen the metal and the diamonds being shown. Possibly a good alternative to traditional engagement rings for younger couples not looking to pend a fortune!

    • Although not technically achievable in Metal your right a cost effect alternative to expensive engagement rings would be awesome. I do wonder if anyone is doing this at all. Please forward any links..

  2. agree. Love the black gold version. I have seen black and white ceramic rings online which look way cool but interested to see of you could pull of diamond rings like this. the other colors look really cheap though. Great post.

  3. I love them! I want them to be made. I am inlove with the blue one. I know they started making the pink gold, but now they should def make the different colors. I interestlinly enough, like the black gold as well. Not all girls like pink. I love blue and i’m about as girly as any other girl.

  4. Thanks for all your comments. I’m a big fan of the Black one, reminds me of a great black ceramic ring I have (I think by John Greed). We’d love to see more metal choices like this as unfortunately the industry is stuck with three colours, Silver, Yellow and Rose. I’m sure some technician will come up with some precious metal tints soon though!!

    • When niobium, tantalum or titanium metals are bathed in a electrical bath, they produce vibrant colors. These metals would serve as an alternate to gold, silver and platinum metals.

  5. how would I go about getting a customize black one I need a 1q diamond in the middle and three 1/4on each side with begets alternative every other, also want the side to in beded into the black gold so they do not stand, I don’t care the cost I have to have it!

  6. We’ve been doing a little digging about this as it’s something we’ve always been interested in and we had this response from Mark Johnson at http://www.serendipitydiamonds.co.uk

    “Sounds good in practice, but it can be a nightmare in practice. I used to know a company that manufactured blue gold but the big problem is solder. You cannot get blue gold solder, and how do you size a ring, if you cannot get the solder in the same shade.

    Anything unnaturally coloured, is hard to support with additional maintenance work, re-tipping etc, and even if you produced the coloured alloy, few bullion dealers would provide materials that were colour matched.

    I think besides the process of producing colour permanence, especially durable under heat, this is the reason that one off pieces such as pendants are more likely, rather than items for life that require maintenance over a lifetime”

  10. I love the photoshop work. My girlfriend is in love with the pink one. I like the idea of different colors in the same setting. I would love a green one myself. Any jewelers interested in this concept yet?

  15. I love pink too, but I’m hoping to have a rose gold or pink gold wedding band – pinkish enough to make me happy. You could also get a ring with same color jewels all around the band.

  16. If the band on these rings were thicker I would love!!!!!!! The purple one is stunning. They are different, but that is what captures the attention.

  17. Great idea, until the color begins to fade and tarnish making it look like you bought it from a quarter vending machine. Plating 10, 14, or 18 karat gold will ultimately end up the as the base color it is plated on.

    One thing that isn’t mentioned here is that these colours would be completely possible in anodized Titanium or Niobium.
