If you’re a person who likes the finer things, you probably have a favorite type of jewelry. Wearing gold is popular, and people even have type preferences, including yellow gold, white gold, and rose gold.

Globally, the jewelry industry is worth more than $300 billion and is steadily growing.

The options are particularly plentiful if you’re a fan of yellow gold pieces. Here’s what you should know about buying and wearing yellow gold jewelry.

The Benefits of Yellow Gold Jewelry

Before buying gold jewelry, you need to know what makes it so beneficial. It tends to be the top preference for people who like gold jewelry.

Here are some of the major benefits you should consider:

Yellow Gold Is Elegant and Stylish

People love yellow gold because of its look and appeal. The color is often associated with royalty, wealth, and success. It accommodates any skin tone, and fits any type of clothing you’re going to wear.

Gold jewelry is a constant centerpiece through the different trending styles that come and go.

Plenty of people today are pairing yellow gold with lab grown diamonds to mix modern technology with beautiful aesthetics. Heirloom yellow gold jewelry can remain as vibrant as ever for years to come.

It’s Durable and Anti-Corrosive

Whether you’re purchasing an engagement ring or a nice piece of trendy jewelry, you have an expectation for it to last a long time. Yellow gold is a great investment because it’s durable and you can count on it lasting for years to come.

These jewelry pieces are anti-corrosive, so you won’t need to worry about your favorite pieces rusting out. You can count on your gold jewelry retaining its value and looking great for as long as you own it.

It Has Universal Appeal

Yellow gold fits all personalities and styles, and can go with any part of your wardrobe. People with different jewelry preferences can all find quality options in yellow gold.

Perhaps you’re looking for some dangling 14K gold earrings accented by precious stones. Other people choose to express themselves with understated solid yellow gold studs or necklaces.

Yellow gold also remains a go-to precious metal option for people looking to say their “I do’s”.

After sizing your ring, yellow gold provides a timeless look for engagement rings and wedding bands. Yellow gold with diamonds is a common choice for wedding rings.

Wearing Gold Has Health Benefits

People also experience health benefits when wearing different types of gold. It’s been proven that wearing gold can help people dealing with rheumatoid arthritis pain. The skin contact with the yellow gold relieves inflammation so that the joints are less tense and swollen.

Some other health benefits of wearing gold include:

  • The chemical properties of gold improve circulation and the amount of oxygen in the blood
  • Provides an immune system boost
  • Enriches the skin so that it’s vibrant and healthy
  • Helps maintain level and balanced body temperatures
  • Provides overall wellness and rejuvenating properties

Many people wear gold as part of a spiritual or holistic healing practice. Feeling good about what you’re wearing and how you look can also improve mood, which is excellent for mental health.

It Has Versatility

One of the best benefits of yellow gold is that it’s arguably the most versatile gold available. People with all different tastes and preferences wear yellow gold.

You can purchase yellow gold for function and durability in the form of a nice timepiece, or can use yellow gold for gaudy pieces of jewelry. Understanding this versatility will give you some context as you shop with a jeweler.

How to Purchase the Best Yellow Gold Jewelry

Now that you’re clear on what gold jewelry can do for you, take the time to shop around. There are some strategies you’ll need to stick to when you’re trying to find the right jewelry.

Consider the following:

Explore the Karats

A karat is a metric for the purity of a gold jewelry piece. The jewelry pieces that people wear are often mixed with other types of metals. When the gold is 100% pure, it’s 24K.

Other karat measurements include:

  • 18K gold, when the jewelry piece is 75% gold, and 25% a mixture of other metal materials
  • 14K gold, when the jewelry piece is 58% gold, and 42% a mixture of other metal materials
  • 10K gold, when the jewelry piece is 42% gold, and 58% a mixture of other metal materials
  • 9K gold, when the jewelry piece is 38% gold, and 62% a mixture of other metal materials

Some other jewelers sell gold-plated jewelry. These pieces are made with other metals but are covered with a thin layer of gold. If you’re going to purchase a piece of yellow gold jewelry, you need to know the purity and should get a copy of the appraisal.

Consider the Pieces That You Like

Figure out why you want to purchase a yellow gold piece and then figure out what kind of jewelry you’ll love. Since it’s such a universal type of jewelry, you need some item suggestions that will point you in the right direction.

Some popular types of yellow gold jewelry include:

  • Bengal bracelets
  • Herringbone necklaces
  • Cuban link chains
  • Stud earrings
  • Circular wedding bands and engagement rings

Mix and match a few different types of yellow-gold options so that you’re able to figure out which style speaks to your sensibilities. From there, you can decide how many karats you’d like to purchase and can find the best varieties available.

Look for a Jewelry Shop

It takes the help of a quality jewelry shop to make sure you find the ideal options. Search for some pros that can sell you the ideal piece, and make sure that they’re licensed, insured, and have accurate appraisals for all of their jewelry pieces.

Look for shops that are certified by organizations like the Jewelers of America (JA). Find out what kinds of prices they have for all of their jewelry pieces, and consider doing business with shops that have a promotion or discount.

Compare prices with other jewelers in the area until you find the perfect piece of yellow-gold jewelry in your price range.

Get Protection for Your Gold Jewelry

Always ask for an appraisal when you decide to purchase any kind of yellow gold jewelry. This appraisal will verify the number of karats that your piece has, along with other characteristics, and the current dollar value range.

Knowing how much your gold jewelry piece is worth will help you take measures to protect it.

Put an insurance plan on your yellow gold rings so that their value is covered. Many people put their jewelry on their renter’s or homeowner’s insurance plans. You can also purchase a separate insurance plan just for the jewelry piece either with a third-party insurance provider or directly from the jeweler.

Select an insurance plan that has enough value to protect your jewelry piece over the next several years.

Get the Most From Your Yellow Gold Jewelry Pieces

Once you have found the ideal piece of yellow gold jewelry, make sure that you have a quality place to store it. You’ll have a better time showing off your gold jewelry pieces with any outfit when they’re kept in a solid jewelry box or other cases.

The jewelry piece will also have more luster when you keep it clean. Experts recommend using a warm soap and water solution to keep your gold as thoroughly as possible. Your jewelry shop might also sell you a gold-safe cleaning solution that can help you keep it free of grime and stains.

Use a soft cloth that you can rub your jewelry pieces down, and give them plenty of time to dry. Your gold jewelry might also need to soak for a while in a warm soap and water solution before washing it. Let it sit for 3 to 4 hours, and it’ll loosen up some of the hard-to-remove dirt, grime, and oils.

Purchase the Best Gold Jewelry

These tips will help you buy the best yellow gold jewelry that you can find. If you appreciate a quality piece of gold jewelry, the points above will help you shop around and figure out which styles you’d like to wear.

From there, you’ll have some valuable additions to your collection that you will be proud to show off with all of your favorite outfits.

Shimon is absolutely amazing at what he does and such a pleasure to work with. We had a custom wedding band made to complement my center stone and the design is quite unique. My fiancé was very apprehensive and worried about not going with a classic wedding band but we both couldn’t be happier with how it turned out! Going to be hard not to wear this for the next few months! 😅

Just got a new watch and needed a link removed. I found this store on Google and decided to stop in and see if they could help. Shimon doesn’t typically do watches, but he didn’t hesitate to stop what he was doing to help me. He took the time out of his day to help me and wouldn’t accept any payment. You can tell he takes extreme pride in his work and he will do whatever it takes to help his customers. I will absolutely be coming back and using him in the future!

My fiancé and I cannot say enough about Shimon and Finer Custom Jewelry. I had an heirloom ring from my mom, and two bands that I wanted to use to create a very specific ring, the ring of my dreams. After a lot of research, we found Shimon. Throughout the entire process, he was incredible. From our very first meeting where we went over my vision, to the final product. I feel so lucky to have found such a caring and talented jeweler. You can tell he takes such pride in his work, as he should because it is truly flawless. I would recommend Shimon to anyone I know. We are so thankful to have him to make our forever ring so incredibly special. It exceeded all our expectations and then some.

I would give Shimon at Finer Custom Jewelry 10 stars if I could! He created an entirely custom ring for my fiancé just based on one Google image photo that she provided me. Before working with Shimon, I assumed I would not be able to afford a custom ring, but I was able to choose everything for the ring and stay perfectly within my budget. It was a very personal experience to create this ring and I felt heard by Shimon the entire time. (He even texted me to congratulate me on my engagement!) And he produced the most wonderful, amazing ring that will last for a lifetime! One final note: as a woman proposing to another woman, I was nervous to be judged when purchasing a non-traditional engagement ring. Shimon made me feel SO comfortable and validated. I could not recommend his services enough.

My entire experience with Shimon was incredible start to finish. I came in with just an idea of what I wanted for an engagement ring. He took the time to explain the different options, settings and styles that would match my idea. Needless to say, the ring turned out beautifully and she loved it. Most importantly, Shimon was honest and fair. We will definitely be going back for all of our future needs.

I’ve been looking for a yellow diamond ring for a while now and I’m so glad I foundation Finer Jewelry!!! Shimon showed me a variety of diamonds and made sure I was in love with the specific stone and shade of the diamond. Shimon made sure to educate me on my purchase which I really appreciated because I honestly didn’t know much about diamonds before meeting with him. I could not be more obsessed with this ring, so thank you so much Shimon for helping me find my dream ring!!!

If you are looking for a jeweler in the Scottsdale/Phoenix area, look no further. As we began shopping for an engagement ring we went to a number of different jewelers in the area but no one offered the same level of customer service as Shimon at Finer Jewelry! He was so helpful and caring throughout the entire process of designing my dream ring. I get so many compliments on my ring and it’s all thanks to Finer Jewelry!!

I was gifted diamonds from my mother and both grandmother’s wedding rings and I wanted to make my own wedding ring with them. I was able to schedule an appointment the following day and began working on the ring design. They were so thorough in making sure the fit and design was just right by making 3D imaging and wax molds for you to see before the ring is actually made. The whole process took about a month from start to finish and you can’t beat the price! I’m beyond happy with what they made for me. It’s truly something special.
18:36 14 Dec 21
After sharing our diamond CCC wish list with Shimon we sat back and waited. Shimon took us seriously and carefully watched the exchanges for "our stone". He found us a nearly flawless diamond that presented 30% larger than its weight! We then asked Shimon to craft a setting that required specially cut supplemental diamonds. Shimon's relationships with diamond cutters and his goldsmith made it possible for him to deliver our dream setting with our own "hope" diamond! Shimon is personable, very fun to work with and completely transparent. He and his stones are priceless!
