Yellow Gold 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.

Amazing service and beautifully designed engagement ring! I bought an custom made engagement ring and had the lovely Natalie help me create this for my fiancé. I did a lot of research before I made any appointments to see someone about creating a ring, Natalie was able to take that even further, explaining more than what you can find online and helping me design the perfect ring. They have ethically sourced diamonds, the gold is fair trade and a life time guarantee on the ring which was a big part in the decision.Do yourself a favour and see the team at Larsen Jewellery they will look after you well!

Wouldn’t hesitate recommending Larsen Jewellery. I bought my own sapphire and Chris turned it into just the piece of jewellery I had imagined. It was a great experience and I will definitely be coming back to Chris at Larsen in the future.

I couldn't be happier with Larsen's beautiful engagement ring for my partner. Not only was the ring stunning, the customer service was first class. Christopher was very knowledgeable and perfect for someone who doesn't know much about rings. They are more interested in tailoring the most suitable ring for your needs and not just quoting you the highest price.Would highly recommend!

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.
