A gold engagement ring is a classic choice for a ring. There are many different types of gold such as yellow, white, and rose gold, giving you many different options for ring designs. Gold pairs with almost everything from diamonds to gemstones such as sapphires, emeralds, rubies, quartz, moissanite, and many more. Gold is naturally quite soft and as such, it is typically mixed with other metal alloys to strengthen it and that is what creates different colors of gold.

It always remains in style whether in simple or more detailed arrangements. A sacred element, gold is symbolic of prestige, wealth, and prosperity and has been revered in the world of jewelry for thousands of years.
