White Gold Engagement Rings
View our gold engagement rings

Some people prefer the classic style of gold engagement rings in spite of the variety of engagement rings available on today’s market. White gold is quickly growing in popularity but yellow gold continues to be a leading choice when it comes to gold engagement rings. At Novori, we have a large selection of gold engagement rings and they continue to be top sellers.

Gold jewelry is valuable to many people. Contrary to popular belief, gold is a soft substance not suitable for durable jewelry. To combat this problem, gold is mixed with additional metals. Copper, silver, zinc, and nickel are used to give gold added strength.

Why are gold engagement rings measured in karats and not carats?

This is important to know when shopping for gold engagement rings. A “karat” represents the amount of pure gold in a piece of jewelry. On the other hand, a “carat” represents the weight of diamonds and other precious metals.

Why are 24-karat gold engagement rings revered?

As stated earlier, karat represents the amount of pure gold in a piece of jewelry. The well-known 24-karat gold mark means the gold is in its purest form. Because of this, 24K gold engagement rings tend to be expensive. 24K doesn’t mean no other material has been added, just that it’s been added in a smaller amount.

To make gold engagement rings affordable, the color and hardness must be adjusted. 24-karat gold engagement rings contain the purest gold and are the most expensive; however, some gold engagement rings contain less gold.

If you see a ring which is 18K, 14K, and so on, that means the ring contains less pure gold. The karat should be indicated on the inside of the ring’s band. If you’re shopping on our site, you’ll see the karat listed with the ring’s information.

18K produces quality gold engagement rings and is considered an industry standard. Higher karats are softer because they contain more pure gold. Soft gold is more flexible and pliant and, therefore, easier to form into many different shapes. Intricate pieces of jewelry often contain 24K gold. However, since 24K gold is so soft, it’s sometimes unsuitable for gold engagement rings.

Is there a big difference between 14K gold engagement rings and 18K gold engagement rings?

A larger number means there’s more pure gold in the ring. Typically, 14K gold engagement rings contain 58% pure gold. On the other hand, 18K gold engagement rings contain 75% pure gold. Most people think 24K and 18K is more desirable because there’s more pure gold but that’s not necessarily the case.

14K gold engagement rings are often stronger and more durable. Many people shy away from 14K gold rings because they are prone to tarnish and cause allergic reactions. However, since 14K gold engagement rings contain less gold, they are cheaper than those made of 24K and 18K. Gold engagement rings are traditional and timeless. Regardless of the karat you choose, your ring will symbolize your special relationship.
