FAQs about Gold Engagement Rings

The three types of gold offered at Blue Nile are white gold, yellow gold, and rose gold. 14k gold and 18k gold have different characteristics. 14k gold consists of 14 parts of pure gold mixed with 10 parts of other metals, and it’s more durable and affordable than 18k gold, which consists of 18 parts pure gold mixed with six parts of other metals.

Gold is a natural metal that's resistant to rust, tarnish, and corrosion. Yellow is its natural color, and it’s a traditional choice for bridal jewelry.

As with any engagement ring, the carat weight and quality of the center diamond make the biggest impact on a gold engagement ring’s price. Both yellow gold and white gold are more affordable alternatives to platinum.

White gold is a cost-effective alternative to platinum. White gold is a strong and durable choice, but it will need occasional plating to maintain that bright look. Platinum, on the other hand, is naturally white and very durable. Over time, platinum develops a lovely patina resulting from fine scratches.

Like No Other

When I met the girl of my dreams I knew I had to find the ring of her dreams. And I did. And even more, the team at Blue Nile wanted to make sure it was, too. I bought this beautiful ring in Rose Gold but something in me said ‘exchange it for the Yellow Gold... it’s perfect’. And you all helped me land at the perfect ring for the perfect girl with such ease and understanding. I would recommend you guys 10/10 for quality, selection, and customer service. Thank you all so much. - Andrew K.

Gold Engagement Ring Review

Gorgeous Setting

If you like rose gold and are looking for a 6-pronged setting, I highly recommend this ring. The sparkle of the diamonds on the band really set off the center stone, and the intricate hand engraving gives the rose gold its own sparkly, glitter-like quality. The six prongs secure the center diamond and make it look a bit larger. I’m very happy with my choice and feel like I got a great value, too.

Gold Engagement Ring Review

Beautiful, dainty ring. Perfect for smaller hands

Once we arrived home, we ordered the exact same ring again because I loved it so much. My ring is white gold with a 0.30 carat diamond. I have smaller fingers and my ring is a size 4.5. I think that it looks really nice on my finger. I did not want anything too flashy with a huge diamond. This ring is perfect. I really love the tapered band, it adds a unique touch to the ring and I find that it accents and compliments the centre diamond beautifully. The six smaller diamonds surrounding the centre diamond jazz up the band nicely and are really eye catching. I also really like that the centre diamond is held by four claws, as opposed to six. This ring is super sparkly, especially in the sun, and it is gorgeous!
