Your guide to buying yellow gold wedding rings
The most popular women’s wedding rings in yellow gold are generally diamond-accented. The Half Pavé Band and the Infinity Band both feature small, pavé set diamonds for a subtle-yet-elegant look. The Eternity Band, Alternating Shapes Band, and Devotion Band are examples of well-loved wedding rings with more substantial diamonds, or diamonds that wrap entirely around the ring.
The most popular men’s wedding rings in yellow gold are generally more metal-forward. Solid gold Flat or Round bands are sought after for their timeless and more traditional look. Men’s bands with small diamond accents, such as the Brushed Baguette Band and Round Inlay Band grow in popularity for those wanting a little extra shine.
For those looking to create a yellow gold wedding ring set by matching their engagement ring and wedding band, there are many options. Certain wedding rings are created to pair perfectly with their engagement ring. Single Shared Prong engagement rings and Single Shared Prong wedding bands, Signature V solitaire engagement rings and Signature V bands, or Baguette Bar engagement rings and Baguette Bar bands are all examples of styles that can create a matching set.
Most yellow gold wedding rings are designed to stack comfortably with an engagement ring, or with other bands. Beyond more traditional styles, a Knife-Edge Band or Chevron Band can add extra detail to a traditional stack. Larger Eternity Bands, as well as Five Stone Bands or Curator Bands, might not always pair flush with all engagement ring styles— and therefore risk scratching. For styles like these, speak with a diamond expert for more personalized advice.
Frequently asked questions
For both engagement rings and wedding rings, 18k gold is usually the preferred karat. 18k is closer to pure, or 24k, gold. This makes it slightly more “precious” and appropriate for such sentimental designs. The difference between 14k vs 18k gold however is that 18k gold is slightly less durable. An 18k solid gold wedding ring will last a lifetime, but should be removed during strenuous work to avoid scratching.
While all of VRAI’s wedding rings are crafted using 18k solid gold, there are certain 14k yellow gold rings that individuals choose as their wedding bands. Tetrad Rings are an example of a unisex design that is sought after as a wedding ring time and time again. For a more untraditional band, consider a Signet Ring or a Mixed Cuff Ring in yellow gold.
“His and hers,” “hers and hers,” “theirs and his”... define love on your own terms! There are yellow gold couples rings perfect for mixing and matching, such as Brushed bands in varying widths, as well as Devotion Bands and other styles. For those looking for a close-but-not-exact match, consider pairing by diamond shape. A Round Eternity Band would pair well with a Round Inlay Band, for example, or a Brushed Baguette Band would be perfect with a Baguette Bar Band.
Of course you can mix metal colors! Your wedding ring set is a reflection of your personality and unique love, and should be true to your very own style. Mixing white and yellow gold, or yellow gold with rose gold or platinum, is a wonderful way to create a fashion-forward and personalized set. Also consider mixing plain styles with pavé styles for a truly head-turning look.
