Picking Out Yellow Gold Wedding Bands
When deciding on which yellow gold wedding band to buy for your loved one of yourself there are several things you should consider. First, and most importantly, you should never be swayed by some smart looking, suit clad "chump," into buying any ring that you are not one hundred per cent satisfied with. Make sure you are selfish when buying a yellow, gold wedding band because you only get a few chances to get this right (or one, if you are lucky).

Two Rings or One Ring?
It is important to consider a factor which is often overlooked. You have to consider if your partner will be wearing their wedding ring alongside their engagement ring. If that is the case you may want to invest in a yellow gold wedding band that matches the engagement ring. A very trendy choice is to match the material, and sometimes the style, of the engagement ring with that of the wedding ring. This works particularly well with yellow gold wedding bands as they can work well as both engagement rings and wedding rinds.
How Comfortable is Your Ring?
When selecting from the plethora of yellow gold wedding bands it is very important to consider how comfortable your wedding band is. If you, or your partner, are particularly active in sport or have a manual labour job of some type you may want to opt for a more robust ring design.
Diamond rings work fabulously and look beautiful, but if you are typing a lot they can get in the way and cause discomfort. In this case a more modest yellow gold wedding band may be more appropriate.
How is your Yellow Gold Wedding Band Set?
Choosing the setting from the countless yellow gold wedding bands can be a confusing experience. This comes down more to personal preference than anything else. Whether you decide to go for a flush diamond ring or a bezel setting for a diamond on your gold wedding band is entirely up to you. A prong setting can be very successful as it allows the light to reflect off of the diamond more making it more striking.
Wedding rings with bezel or flush setting will make the diamond, or gem encrusted less likely to catch on any clothing, but only show the top of them.
Choosing a Metal for Yellow Gold Wedding Bands
Choosing a metal for a yellow gold wedding band is a confusing and personal experience. Yellow gold tends to be the most popular choice, but there are many other options. When looking at the purity of gold, rings cast out of gold of 18 and up carats is not suggested as it is very soft and can bend or warp much more frequently.
White gold is another very popular choice that is very similar to platinum. It is coated in a thing layer of rhodium which creates the white look. This layer will eventually wear off your wedding band and can leave it looking worn and aged. For this reason we suggest sticking to the yellow gold wedding bands featured above.
