For jewelry that truly endures the test of time, you can’t go wrong with yellow gold. It’s considered by many to be the most classic of all the gold colors, and is the most popular metal used for engagement and wedding rings. It’s also the most malleable of all precious metals, which means it’s perfect for the intricate designs that have become our signature at Coffin & Trout Fine Jewellers.
In addition to yellow gold, our collections feature some lesser known — but certainly not lesser luxury — golds, including green gold and white gold. Gold is, by nature, yellow. But by adding small percentages of different metal alloys (such as copper, zinc, silver or nickel), gold can take on stunning new hues. Here are some of our favorites from our collections.
Go high contrast or go home. In this ring design, gold doesn’t just provide the structure; it’s also the star. Two sweeping bands of 18K green gold are set with fancy yellow diamonds, ensuring the 1.86ct cerulean paraiba pops from its platinum prongs.
Gold on gold makes a gleaming match. A shimmering 9.8mm golden south sea pearl dangles delicately from an 18K gold arch in this necklace from our Axis collection. For an extra touch of shine, the pendant is accented with 14 round brilliant cut diamonds.
A celebration of angles with a pleasing twist, this ring features an 8.16ct green tourmaline gemstone. Perched atop a band crafted of 18K green gold and platinum, and set with round brilliant cut diamonds, it both commands attention and highlights the precious metals it uses for support.
Three round brilliant cut diamonds peek out of a cubed rotating pendant, with heart cutouts on the top and all sides. This sweet necklace from our Romance collection is fashioned from 18K yellow gold.
Curving, twisting 14K white gold bands are set with 111 diamonds in this graceful bracelet. Not all white golds are alike, and this bracelet will maintain its premium color without rhodium plating, thanks to its Grade 1 color rating based on the Yellowness Index from the White Gold Task Force.
This modern take on the link bracelet style wraps the wrist with eight 18K yellow gold bars, each set with three rows of brilliant cut pave diamonds, 5.19ctw of diamonds in all. For a lovely stacked effect, match this bracelet with the two-tone gold version in the Paragon Pave collection.
