Disclosure: We generate revenue from some diamond vendors through the links on this site. Anyone who makes money on a business can never claim they are 100% objective, but we try really hard. It’s never worth giving someone poor advice for one sale that will damage our credibility. For more details, click here.
So if you’re out there looking for the best diamond for your money, then please contact usand let us know your budget and what you’re looking for. We’ll sift through thousands of diamonds online and send you suggested stones to choose from that fit your needs the best.
We explain the technical details of each type of metal. When it comes to what color (yellow, rose or white) there is no technical answer to which is best. This is based on personal preference, skin tone and current fashion.
One important note is that you shouldn’t think that Platinum is somehow better than white gold. Visually they are virtually identical. Check out this beautiful platinum solitaire from James Allen. Now here is the same setting in 14kt white gold and it looks identical. Technically speaking, platinum is poor value (as explained below), so you are better off putting your money towards the diamond.
If you are interested in more personal help, don’t hesitate to contact us.
Alloyed with copper to produce the rose color. Red, rose, and pink gold refer to various shades of this family. Basically, the more copper, the redder the gold becomes. A common alloy for rose gold is 75% gold and 25% copper by mass (18K). Like white gold, since rose gold is an alloy, “pure rose gold” doesn’t actually exist.
Considered by many to be the most romantic metal due to its pinkish-red color.
May be more affordable than other metals since copper — the alloy used to make rose gold — costs less.
Copper is also very durable and makes rose gold a tougher metal than yellow or white gold.
Rose gold is very much in style for both men’s and women’s rings.
Complements all skin tones.
Copper can causes allergic reactions in some people, therefore not a hypo-allergenic metal.
Even though rose gold rings are in style now, they are still not as widely available as yellow and white gold.
