Yellow Gold Solitaire Rings

About Our Yellow Gold Solitaire Engagement Rings

We craft our solitaire yellow gold engagement rings with the finest 18K gold. The purest form of gold, 24K, is physically soft and a little garish in colour. Adding more durable, less colour-saturated metals like silver is what gives 18K yellow gold the perfect golden glow and provides your engagement ring with greater resistance to breaking or scratching. Whilst you may be interested in a 14K yellow gold solitaire ring, the golden tone is more desaturated, causing many to prefer the richer, velvety appeal of 18K gold rings.

Skilfully Crafted in 18K Yellow Gold

As with every Queensmith ring, our expert Hatton Garden jewellers craft each 18K yellow gold solitaire engagement ring with care, passion and concentrated attention to the details. Solitaire rings are simple and refined by nature, but our goldsmiths still pore over the minutiae to ensure a ring that endures both time and style.

How to Design Your Yellow Gold Solitaire Ring

Albeit simple by nature, there is plenty of scope to make your yellow gold solitaire ring personal, unique, and reflective of your own, true style. What better way to add charm to a solitaire engagement ring than by choosing charming, warm yellow gold?

A small but important design feature is the claws that will hold your diamond or gemstone in place. If you’re choosing a colourless diamond, you may choose platinum claws to avoid reflecting the gold-coloured metal into the diamond. Platinum claws will keep your diamond bright, white and colourless!

Although the most traditional choice, a diamond isn’t for everyone. In fact, almost every coloured gemstone makes for a beautiful match when paired with yellow gold. Choosing an emerald, sapphire or ruby for your yellow gold solitaire ring will ensure bags of character despite the refined design.
