Our diamond engagement rings are available in 18kt White GoldYellow Gold, and Rose Gold

  • Gold in its natural form is yellow and is completely pure at 24kt.
  • When combined with different metal alloys, it produces different coloured golds: we use 18kt rose and 18kt white gold, as well as the natural yellow gold.
  • 18kt gold is harder than 24kt gold, which is considered too soft for use in jewellery.
