How to Choose An Engagement Ring Metal Type

Learn the difference between gold and platinum, and find which tones will complement your personal style the best.

When it comes to selecting an engagement ring, knowing which engagement ring metal types you like and look best in will help you pick out the perfect one. These days, there are so many gorgeous options, so how do you choose just one? The right one? Beyond picking a diamond shape and carat weight of your liking, the color of the metal you choose has a huge effect on the overall look of your ring. Read on to learn about the five top metal picks for modern couples.

Bold and Bright

A lot of modern brides favor the naturally white precious metal—platinum. This innately valuable and rare metal accentuates and elevates the diamonds brilliance, giving the appearance of an extra radiant stone.

A handful of household names—Sophie Turner, Priyanka Chopra, Jennifer Lopez, and Beyonc—all have platinum-set rocks. And if the price feels exorbitant, do remember that platinum is much more rare and pure than other precious metals. It complements nearly all skin tones, is extremely durable for active lifestyles, and is also hypoallergenic for sensitive skin.

Classic and Charismatic

For brides who love the idea of the luminous sheen of platinum at a lower price point, white gold is a great option. Similar to platinum, white golds light color enhances a diamonds brilliance.

Kate Middletons sapphire stunner from Princess Diana is set in white gold, a testament to the metals cache for elegance and contemporary appeal. Plated in rhodium to protect it from scratches and to give it that bright white effect, white gold does require maintenance and re-plating about every four years.

Where Old Meets New

Yellow gold is a bit of a chameleon: Though typically considered a more traditional, old-school engagement ring metal type, yellow gold has never really gone out of style for brides who crave timeless elegance and arent afraid to put a fresh spin on an old classic.

Browse gold engagement rings and youll find ample styles that range from utterly vintage and antique to fashionably modern. Just look at the examples seen across Hollywood. Katy Perrys floral number screams vintage while Hailey Biebers clean solitaire is very modern and understated while still boasting a bold center stone.

Pink and Peppy

In the early twentieth century, Cartier launched its trinity band which featured a strand of rose gold metal, solidifying the pink-tinted material in the bridal jewelry canon. Rose gold has a very romantic hue, offering a unique and unquestionably stylish look.

Allison Bries gorgeous engagement ring exemplifies how rose gold can pull double duty. The double halo coupled with a chunkier band gives the ring a modern feel, yet the rose gold keeps it from feeling too modern. Its just the right balance of Old Hollywood elegance and fresh, sparkling energy.

Mixing Magic

Mixed metal rings have tended to be reserved for brides really wanting a one-of-a-kind, modern look. While thats still true, theres a growing trend favoring subtle hints of contrast that feel very delicate and feminine, rather than bold and traditionally modern.

For an ultra-chic, cool-girl look, mix engagement ring metal types like a white gold band with a dollop of color in the form of a rose gold halo or inner ring band.
