Choosing the Perfect Gold for Your Engagement or Wedding Band: A Quick Guide

Choosing the right gold for your engagement or wedding band can be overwhelming. Here's a short guide to help you choose.

14k and 18k Gold

Pure gold is 24 karats. Two popular options are 14k and 18k gold. The "k" for karats indicates purity, with 14k containing 58.3% pure gold and 18k containing 75%.

  • 14K
    • 14K is more durable and ideal for daily wear.
  • 18K
    • 18K yellow gold and rose gold are richer in colour but softer than 14K yellow and rose gold.
    • 18K white gold is whiter, brighter, and softer than 14k white gold.

If you are sensitive to certain alloys (i.e., you react to certain jewelry or earrings) then consider 18K.
