The metal you choose for an engagement ring is all about personal preference. Yellow gold engagement rings
provide a traditional look that pairs beautifully with faint-colour diamonds
. White gold and platinum engagement rings enhance the icy tone of near-colourless or colourless diamonds
. When you're looking for something especially romantic or well suited with a vintage-inspired design, rose gold makes a unique choice, as well. Platinum, as always, is the premier metal choice for an engagement ring, since it’s extremely durable, delightfully hefty, and develops a gorgeous patina as it ages.
