Pear Cut & Marquise Shaped Engagement Rings

Gold pear-shaped engagement rings combined with a marquise-cut have the same facets as round diamonds. These rings are lively and vibrant, making the wearer’s fingers look elongated. The combo of pear and marquis cut gives a larger surface area to the gemstone. A larger surface area makes them look bigger than round gemstones of similar weight and carat. You can incorporate a pear and marquis cut style into almost every gem on a gold band for a creative genius.

Beautiful Rings In White Gold

In the last decade, the choice of white gold as an engagement ring has skyrocketed, even more than yellow gold. White gold earned this pedigree because of its modern appearance and beautiful shine. It also flatters all skin tones but is best on fair skin. White gold can emphasize the yellow shade of a diamond. So work with colored gemstones or colorless diamonds of the highest clarity. Make them into a halo, pave, pear shape, split shanks, round gold engagement rings, and more. White gold is very durable and less susceptible to scratches, even though not recommended for nickel-sensitive people.

Solitaire Gold Engagement Rings

Solitaire gold engagement rings are versatile, timeless, and the toast of every bride. Hence, real gold engagement rings in solitaire are the classic choice for their Haute simplicity. They often come with simple plain bands and a single-center gemstone. But there’s no limit to how creative you can get with solitaire. Pear or oval cut stone gives off a soft look that flatters the fingers, while an emerald cut brings a sophisticated appeal. Brides with tastes for geometric shapes will lean towards princess cuts to enhance the sparkle. Also, you can switch diamonds for ruby, sapphire, opals, and more.

Beautiful Stackable Rings

Stackable rings symbolize individuality as they make a shiny statement about the adventurous bride. Begin with the perfect engagement ring on your finger and build around the bauble. You can work white, yellow, and rose gold into the mix to create a chaotic cohesion. The downside of this style is that they can look over the top. So, to keep your fingers cute, use slimmer bands all the way or build thin bands around a bold one. Another smart choice is to work with different weights and shapes for more personality.
