Yellow Gold Engagement Rings

Choose from our yellow gold engagement rings below or create your own unique design. All the designs in the gallery can be personalised to suit your individual style and preferences. Read more about white gold engagement rings

Yellow gold is a very traditional choice of metal for engagement rings and remains a popular choice. At Larsen Jewellery, we typically use 18ct yellow gold, which contains 75% pure gold and provides the best combination of strength and purity. Many engagement rings made using yellow gold are made in combination with white gold, which is most often used for diamond settings.

Yellow gold is an alloy of pure gold and other metals, including silver and copper, and can be made in 18ct, 14ct and 9ct. The carat (ct) refers to the amount of pure gold in the alloy. Due to the softness of pure 24ct gold, yellow gold is alloyed to increase its strength and wearability. The colour of yellow gold can vary as a result of its gold content, with 18ct yellow gold being a richer yellow colour than 9ct yellow gold. 18ct yellow gold is also a harder wearing metal than 9ct gold and is preferable for use in engagement rings.

What Our Customers Say

After attending several jewellery stores in shopping centre, I was not feeling confident as they consistently called almost daily after the visit. after speaking to a client I was referred to Larsen's.I went into larsens and was greeted by John.he mentioned that normally clients need to book for a visit and was very busy but still managed to fit me in.After having a 30 minuet consult with John we spoke about a few designs and ideas for the perfect Engagement ring.at no point did I ever feel forced or obligated to purchased a ringas I had at previous stores.John was very patient event tho his day was already booked out.I would highly recommend John and Larsens Jewellery for their expert knowledge, professionalism and excellent customer service .

I purchased my fiancé’s beautiful ring during the late 2021 lockdownsChris was there from the start and guided me along the journey from choosing the perfect stone to perfecting the rose gold ring. Because of lockdowns in NSW, we communicated via emails and phone calls.I constantly bombarded Chris with my endless questions and concerns, and he answered everything with transparency and ease — I felt supported and calm. I’ve very appreciative to Chris and the team for going above and beyond in crafting the ring my fiancé LOVES so much.Well done to the Larsen team and I can’t wait to come back in to design our wedding bands and chat to our mate Chris again :)

From the very beginning the staff were helpful and accommodating. They never rushed us to make a decision, quite the opposite as they were patient and wanted to help us explore all the options.They are extremely knowledgeable and set a very high standard for themselves which is reflected in their professionalism as well as the quality of their work.They were genuinely friendly and they didn't try to push a sales pitch.Most importantly, they were said from the very beginning that the engagement ring and wedding rings were our rings and we had to be 100% happy with our choices so asked what style and designs interested us and worked towards providing what we were wanting, not what they wanted to sell.Happiest customers EVER, thank you Larsen Jewellery

Alex and the whole team at Larsen were incredible. Given I was wanting to surprise my now fiancee it was a bit stressful the idea of getting it wrong. But Alex was a tremendous help, took the time to explain every detail and was extremely knowledgeable. The whole process was seamless and so well communicated. Plus she said yes so thanks Alex and the team at Larsen!

Frequently Asked Questions

Still have questions? We’re happy to answer them! 

What is 18ct yellow gold?

18ct yellow gold is an alloy of 75% pure 24ct gold and 25% other hardening metals such as silver and copper. While there are other yellow gold alloys available (such as 9ct or 14ct) 18ct is the most resistant to damage over a lifetime of everyday wear, and therefore the recommended choice for a yellow gold engagement ring.

What is the hallmark for 18ct gold?

The hallmark for 18ct gold is 750. This represents the 750 parts per 1000 that is made up of pure gold. You can find this hallmark stamped on the inside of all the yellow gold engagement rings we have made in 18ct.

Why don’t you make yellow gold engagement rings out of pure 24ct gold?

Pure 24ct gold is a very malleable metal. This makes it too soft to be used in engagement rings as it would easily bend, warp and fracture. It is for this reason that we only use 18ct gold when making gold engagement rings as it has improved durability for everyday wear.

Are yellow gold engagement rings popular?

Yes! Since it is the most similarly coloured alloy to the natural colour of pure gold, this look is always going to be in demand and a timeless aesthetic. We are seeing a strong increase in popularity for yellow gold engagement rings, particularly in designs with white or champagne diamonds and certain coloured gemstones.
