Sure, platinum and white gold are favored by most, but yellow gold engagement rings are about as classic as they come. Retro-inspired gold sparklers are taking over the bridal jewelry market, giving brides-to-be endless options. When shopping for the perfect yellow gold gem, you don't have to choose the traditional gold band and solitaire diamond. Instead, get creative with micro-pavé accents, an etched band, or a modern emerald-cut stone.
Looking for a truly vintage sparkler? Go the route of Mary-Kate Olsen, who's sporting a yellow Cariter creation circa 1953 on her left ring finger. If you want something super unique, choose a yellow gold setting with a colored stone à la Jessica Simpson's ruby ring — a bold stone paired with the yellow-hued metal will ensure your ring is timeless, yet trendy.
