Beloved by Egyptian Pharaohs, Kings and Emperors, yellow gold has long been synonymous with success and power. Over the past decade, yellow gold has undergone a modern renaissance, with brides favouring this style for its sense of heritage.
Yellow gold is perfect for Edwardian-style settings, such as the Halo, which features a row of stones around a bezel mounting around a centre diamond. Or the popular four-prong setting, popular during the 1920s Deco era, usually featuring baguettes or a single large stone.
However, despite being steeped in tradition, yellow gold doesn’t have to feel dated. On the contrary, many jewellery designers add a contemporary spin on the yellow gold band by pairing it with strikingly modern settings such as princess cut or round brilliant cut diamonds. Yellow gold also complements many skin types, shining brightly on those with olive and warmer skin tones.
