Yellow Gold


What is Yellow Gold?

Yellow gold has always been one of the most popular choices for jewellery. Its warm tone compliments all skin tones and its natural yellow colour stands the test of time. While yellow gold is often thought of as pure, it is commonly mixed with other alloys such as zinc and copper. The higher the karat amount, the higher the gold content within the metal but the softer the metal. Yellow gold rings make a lovely choice for modern and vintage inspired designs. Also being the most malleable of all the precious metals means it is a very easy material to work with.



  • Very classic
  • Natural yellow colour will always stay present
  • Easy to work with (Resizing) 
  • Highly malleable material



  • A naturally soft metal
  • Gets thinner and more worn down over time
  • Colour varies depending on karat


Yellow gold over time will scratch and dent due to its natural softness, so will need to be cleaned and polished by a professional jeweller frequently depending on lifestyle.
