When it comes to choosing the precious metal there are a lot of great options. Platinum, white gold, rose gold and yellow gold are the most popular choices for engagement rings. Keep in mind there are different price points and benefits of each.
Other things to consider are the skin tone of your partner, since some tones pair slightly better with specific metals, and, depending on the color and clarity of the diamond, it may sparkle more with a darker or a lighter metal.
But, above all else, when it comes to picking the metal for the engagement ring, think about your loved one’s style and try to choose a color and type of metal that complements your partner’s preferences.
