  • What Is a Round Engagement Ring?

    A round engagement ring is a ring that features a round cut gemstone in the setting. Round cut stones are one of the most sought after because of their inherent brilliance. Each round gemstone is cut to have 58 facets, which means it has more sparkle than other cuts. They are also great at masking any discoloration, so even if you have a slightly less clear diamond in your setting, it will still look radiant.

  • What Is a Yellow Gold Ring?

    There are three types of gold you can choose from when shopping at Shane Co.: yellow, rose, or white gold. There is no best choice, it’s up to preference and considerations like personal style and skin tone. Yellow gold is a mix of pure gold and alloy metals like copper and zinc. The proportion of pure gold to other metals in a yellow gold engagement ring depends on the ring’s karatage. For example, 24 karat yellow gold is 99.9% pure gold while 14 karat yellow gold is 58.3% pure gold. Keep in mind that higher gold concentrations may also mean the metal is less durable, which is why many people opt for 14k or 18k when buying yellow gold engagement rings.

  • What Diamonds and Gemstones Go Best with Yellow Gold Engagement Rings?

    Just about any gemstone and diamond will match beautifully with your yellow gold engagement ring. If you are buying a yellow gold diamond ring, you’ll need to keep the 4Cs – color, clarity, cut, and carat weight – in mind when finding the best center stone that fits into your budget. You’ll want to pay special attention to the last C, carat weight, for traditional solitaire ring styles so you can ensure that you proportion your ring correctly.
