Rings have always been the favored jewelry choice for women. They add so much style to your look without putting any effort into it. From being worn as a sign of marital status to being a fashion accessory… rings have come a long way.
Gold rings for women are the top preference. Gold rings start at a more affordable price than diamond rings for women. Stacking up on gold rings is a very common practice for women who love accessorizing. Did you know gold rings for girls come in three different shades? They are Yellow Gold, White Gold, and Rose Gold. Yellow gold is something that Indians drool over whereas white gold has gained a lot of attention as it is a budget replacement for platinum. Rose Gold has won hearts in Western culture and in engagement rings. Indian gold jewelry is well known for all of the most popular shades of gold worn by men, women, and children.
We’ve talked about the different shades of gold jewelry, now let’s distinguish what’s gold-filled and what’s
gold-plated. You might think that it is the same thing but let me tell you that it’s far from the same.
Before getting into how gold-filled vs gold plated jewelry is created, let’s distinguish if it really matters to
you what kind of gold piece you get? For most people it does.
Gold-plated means that the jewelry has an outer layer of gold. The thing is that the core material of the
piece is brass or copper, which is cheaper. The gold coat is thin, so after some time, it might begin to rub off, revealing the core material. Gold-plated jewelry is prone to scratching or flaking and it’s not suitable
for daily wear.
Gold-filled means that the base material is copper, brass, or silver but there are 2-3 layers of gold bonded
to the core metal. The coating wraps around the core material making the gold-filled jewelry more
expensive, more durable, and more suitable for everyday uses.
Diamond rings, on the other hand, have always been a weak spot for women. Diamonds are a woman’s best friend and they can’t seem to depart from their bestie. Diamonds not only come in the form of stunning engagement and proposal rings but also as eternity rings, gap rings, cocktail rings, and three-stone rings.
- Eternity rings have a repetitive design throughout the length of the ring. There’s also a concept of half eternity ring wherein the design is repeated for half of the length of the ring.
- Gap rings are those that don’t have a complete shank. These are simply a blessing to own as you can wear them on any finger you feel.
- Cocktail rings are big and bold rings that are worn as statement pieces. As the name suggests, three stone rings have three significant diamonds (or gemstones) on the ring.
- Irish Claddagh rings have a unique heart wearing a crown design. This ring has different meanings depending on which hand the ring is worn and the direction in which the heart is pointing. Claddagh rings are generally given as a promise ring that can later signify engagement and marriage also. It is a 3-in-1 ring.
Other fancy ring designs are two-finger rings, broad rings, multi-stone rings, and Flexi rings. Two-finger rings are meant to fit into two fingers and the design spreads over two or more fingers. Broad rings are wider than normal rings, however, they taper towards the backside of the finger. Multi-stone rings have more than a single stone. They usually include a bunch of stones. Flexi rings are the latest type of rings that have taken the market by storm.
The most common type of ring used in the proposal is solitaire rings or three-stone rings. Rings with a solitaire above 50 cents (0.50 carat) are considered solitaire rings. They are usually crafted in White gold or Rose Gold. The rosy hue or the shiny white complements the mood as much as it does the solitaire in the ring.
