So when I looked at wedding rings two years ago with my man, I was leaning towards wanting a white gold e-ring, but now that I realize I wear more yellow gold I have told him that’s what I think I would like.
When I research online I have a hard time finding real life pictures of women with yellow gold e-rings. Could some ladies with yellow gold engagement rings show them off to me?

Here’s mine. It’s a little hard to tell from the pics, but the main stone is set in white gold, and the band is yellow gold, and I have two matching wedding bands in yellow gold that I wear on either side.

Think long and hard about getting a yellow gold ring, white gold (or which ever white metal) shows a diamond much better than a yellow gold ring does. Typically jewlers will tell you the same thing. Just want to help-after all its a life long decision and you should be completely satisfied with it.

What corrc7131 said is true. Most good jewelers will recommend having the diamond set in WG but you can still get the look of the YG on the band. That’s why we did mine that way. It is also very versatile because you feel comfortable wearing either WG or YG for your other jewelry & you still ‘match.’

It is a big tradition with the Indian culture to wear and receive yellow gold during weddings, even for wedding rings. I however, hate yellow gold. If you are looking for ideas, check out some Indian jewlers in or around your neighborhood.
Here’s a site to start you off: http://www.meenajewelers.com/22Kt_Gold/Rings/Ladies_Signity_Rings/
The image is from the site and they also have many wedding bands in yellow gold.

The one super plus side to yellow gold is that you can get a less-white diamond (one with warmth ie a little on the yellower side) and it doesn’t show up at all unless you get all kinds of up close and personal! It’s not that you’re necessarily downgrading (ok u are) but white diamonds look best in white gold, so you can get a slightly downgraded diamond (J or even I) and it will look great in a yellow gold setting, even if it’s larger. It just looks like it’s the illusion of the yellow gold. A white gold setting would be a major no-no for that color diamond tho, as it would LOOK yellow. Man does that make any sense?

I LOVE yellow gold engagement rings, I’ve seen some really pretty ones! I couldn’t find my favorite one but here’s another nice one I liked…Also, I don’t necessarily think the setting is a life-long choice, lots of women get their’s reset (both my mom and FMIL have changed their settings over the course of their 30+ year marriages 🙂

Wow, Mrs. Marzipan, your ring is gorgeous!!
I love the idea of a white gold setting with a yellow gold band; it’s like the best of both worlds. Thanks for the pointers ladies. 🙂

I like white gold better, but I failed to mention that to my FI and he got me a yellow gold engagement ring (which is still beautiful and I wouldn’t trade for anything, by the way). It’s a claddaugh, the traditional irish engagement ring. It was made in Ireland and I think they have a lot of yellow gold rings made there.

Here are a few I’ve found.
A bunch of different styles on one finger:
Yellow gold with prong-set (i think) diamonds:

Below isn’t a good picture of the ring itself but it shows more of a real life look of my ring. The band is yellow gold and the prong setting is in platinum. Unless you are really looking closely you don’t see the difference in metals.

Bumping this thread because I LOVE yellow gold and can’t believe any newer beees don’t have yellow gold rings.
I’m developing serious ring envy because my sapphire, though beautiful, isn’t very versatile and is so big that it sometimes make me feel unsafe when in public. Either that or people think it’s fake! I might start saving up for a yellow gold ring…

You know, it’s funny, I always hated yellow gold. I thought that if FI got me a yellow gold ring, I wouldn’t like it.
But, lo and behold, that’s what he got me and I fell in love with it instantly. 🙂 But I do feel like more people have white gold/platinum than they do yellow gold. They’re both pretty!

I have a yellow gold ring and I love it. Mine is a sapphire with diamonds.
