With such a vast selection of jewelry available in our collection, selecting a new gold ring for women may appear challenging to many. Simultaneously, learning to choose a perfect gold ring is necessary since there are some essential factors to consider before purchasing.

Now that you’ve decided to get an exceptional gold ring let’s explore the basics.

WHICH GOLD KARAT IS SUITABLE FOR RINGS?

Karat, abbreviated as “k”, “K”, or “Kt”, is a unit of measurement used to denote the amount of pure gold in a piece of gold jewelry. It is graded on 0 to 24, with 24 being the most pristine form (pure gold).

A 14 karat gold ring, for example, has 14 parts pure gold and ten parts different metals such as copper, silver, nickel, and zinc. An 18 karat gold ring for women comprises 18 pure gold parts and six other metals or alloys. 22K indicates that 22% of the metal is gold. The remaining two are made up of other metals that help harden gold’s texture, making it more durable. The higher the karatage of the gold, the more refined it is.

When selecting the optimal karat for a gold ring, the first consideration is undoubtedly the metal’s durability, as rings are prone to scratches during normal wear and use.

The finest gold (24k) is very soft and less durable than gold with a lower karatage. As a result, pure gold is incompatible with traditional jewelry designs such as engagement rings, wedding bands, eternity and cocktail rings, couple rings gold, etc. The more other metals in a gold alloy, the more durable it is. That is why most diamond and gemstone jewelry, including rings, is created in 14k, 18k or 22k gold.

22k and 18k gold are the most acceptable option for individuals seeking the most incredible amount of gold while maintaining a high level of durability. 14k gold is ideal for people seeking a mix of durability and affordability since the purer the gold, the more expensive the ring.

WHICH GOLD COLOR IS THE BEST?

Vaibhav Jewellers provides a variety of gold colors to choose from when purchasing a ring, such as yellow (gold), white (white gold), and rose (rose gold).

Yellow Gold

The only form of gold that occurs naturally is yellow gold. Yellow gold is a relatively soft metal in its pure form (2.5 on the Mohs hardness scale). It is combined with more lusty metals such as copper and zinc for use in jewelry creation. Yellow gold often comes in a variety of hues, depending on the concentration of the combined components.

THE BENEFITS OF YELLOW GOLD

  • Historically, the most often used metal for jewelry.
  • The least allergenic of the three gold shades
  • The finest color
  • Simple to pair with diamonds of lesser color grade.
  • It’s simple to deal with.

CONTRAINDICATIONS OF YELLOW GOLD

  • It should be cleaned and polished regularly.
  • It is easily dented and scratched.

White Gold

Natural white gold does not exist. It is composed of a combination of yellow, gold, and white metals, including palladium, silver, nickel, and zinc. These alloys impart a lighter hue to white gold, as well as increased hardness and endurance. The silvery-white shade is created with a final coating of the metal rhodium.

THE BENEFITS OF WHITE GOLD

  • Probably the most popular gold shade in the modern era.
  • It is less costly than platinum.
  • White gold is more robust and scratch-resistant than yellow gold.

Disadvantages OF WHITE GOLD

  • It must be replated with rhodium every few years to maintain its silvery-white hue and shine.
  • If nickel is present, it may trigger allergic responses.

Rose Gold

Rose gold, like white gold, does not occur naturally. It is composed of a combination of pure yellow gold and copper and silver alloys. These metals strengthen rose gold and impart a lovely rose hue to it. The quantity of copper determines rose gold’s depth of color used. A higher copper concentration produces a deeper reddish rose hue.

THE BENEFITS OF ROSE GOLD

  • Often cheaper than other gold hues due to the lower cost of copper.
  • Copper is more durable than yellow and white gold due to its strength.
  • Simple to pair with diamonds of lesser color grade.

Disadvantages of ROSE GOLD

  • It should be cleaned and polished regularly.
  • This product may induce allergic reactions.

Along with our stunning assortment of women’s gold rings, we have an incredible selection of couple rings gold. They come in a range of styles and are worn to demonstrate your commitment to one another. Although we have some ready-made alternatives in the display, we recommend being innovative and focusing on one component that makes your ring collection stand out. Selecting the custom option is the simplest method to create one-of-a-kind rings. It provides you with nearly unlimited creative freedom and the opportunity to create something genuinely unique. On the other hand, custom work can be costly and time-consuming, so it is not for everyone.

The usual question that pops up when someone buys a gold ring for the very first time is:

WHAT IF MY GOLD RING IS POSSESSED OF NICKEL?

As previously stated, pure gold is far too soft to be utilized in the manufacture of jewelry. That is why it is alloyed with nickel and other metals to make it more resistant to corrosion and appropriate for manufacture.

The lower the purity of a gold alloy, the more significant the proportion of other metals. As a result, a ring made of low-karat gold is more prone to irritate the skin and trigger allergic responses.

Whatever color or karat of gold you pick for your gold ring, Vaibhav Jewellers guarantees exceptional quality. Our line is BIS certified, and we collaborate only with the finest artisans. So, there’s nothing to worry about.
