We see a lot of fancy colored diamonds in celebrity engagement rings, but did you know that yellow diamonds have been popular for over a hundred years? Vintage fancy yellow diamonds, cut as cushions, Old Mine cuts, or Old European cuts, have a dramatic golden sparkle that elevates the most simple of settings to something really special. We were so inspired that we chose two Engagement Rings of the Week, one warmer hue set in gold from the 1940s and one cooler tone set in platinum from the 1960s.
Since mid 20th century engagement rings are meant to be paired with a band, we created an epic stack that works for both rings, including a unique vintage diamond wedding band for each ring.
Have we persuaded you to consider a yellow diamond ring? Do you prefer the allover warmth of the yellow gold look or the contrast of the platinum?
