Choosing the right engagement ring for your loved one is very important for most people. Even if we are about to select the right diamond ring, sometimes the ring won’t look very beautiful. This is probably because the metal you selected for your engagement ring is not the right one. There are several different types of metals available for engagement rings and choosing the right one can elevate the ring’s overall appearance.
In this article, we will take a look at some of the best metals that you can choose for your diamond engagement rings.
White gold is yellow gold that has been combined with silvery-white metals such as palladium or silver to make it appear whiter. The sales of white gold engagement rings are increasing each day. White gold is a white metal that is less expensive than platinum. White gold, on the other hand, is slightly more expensive than yellow gold due to the additional processing required. If you’re on a limited budget, 9K white gold can save you up to 15% compared to 18K white gold.
Yellow gold engagement rings are getting extremely popular among people these days. Simply put, ‘yellow gold’ is gold. Gold is a rare and costly precious metal with a bright golden color that occurs naturally. If you are able to afford it, 18K gold is the ideal option because it is more valuable, feels heavier and more sumptuous to the touch, and has a deeper, more intense yellow hue. 9K gold, on the other hand, is a good option if you’re on a budget. It has a lovely glow and is cheaper, although being slightly paler.
Platinum is a rare silvery-white metal with a hefty, sumptuous feel about it. Platinum is scratch- and chip-resistant since it is not coated or treated with any other metal. However, platinum’s surface is moved around over time, resulting in microscopic imperfections and ridges. Platinum’s only drawback is its expensive price when compared to other metals such as gold.
Silver is a white valuable metal that is naturally occurring. Silver, while inexpensive, is not suitable for engagement rings since it is a soft metal that quickly bends out of shape. Silver is better suited to stylish jewelry that is worn occasionally. If worn on the hand every day, it simply will not last a lifetime.
