An alloy of pure gold mixed with white metals like nickel or palladium, white gold is a widely popular choice for engagement rings. Its lustrous, silvery appearance offers a modern twist on the classic gold look. Durable and stylish, it's often plated with rhodium for added brilliance and scratch resistance.


Another classic choice for engagement rings, yellow gold is revered for its luxurious appeal. Its rich, warm hue is achieved by alloying pure gold with metals like copper and zinc. Esteemed for its malleability and enduring charm, yellow gold suits a range of skin tones and styles, evoking a traditional romance.

With its unique and romantic pink hue, rose gold is an enchanting choice for engagement rings. This alluring metal is crafted by blending pure gold with copper alloys, giving it a distinctive, warm blush tone. Its vintage appeal and durability make rose gold a trendy yet universal selection for a ring that symbolises love.


The exceptional metal platinum stands out as a premium choice for engagement rings due to its durability and natural white sheen. Heavier and more dense than gold, it's highly resistant to wear and tarnish. This hypoallergenic metal holds gemstones securely and enhances their brilliance, making it ideal for a lifetime of wear.
