Indeed an ecstatic moment, you want to gift your partner an engagement ring that signifies the strength, endurance, and purity of your relationship.
Contrary to what our previous generations believed in, gone are the times of playing it safe by opting for a classic ring made of singular metal. While such designs continue to have an alluring charm, today’s women are unafraid to experiment and think out of the box. Dating back to Egyptian civilization, the concept of engagement rings has evolved over the centuries. From simplistic diamond rings to exquisite solitaires, colorful gemstones, and vintage rings made in either yellow, white, rose gold, or platinum, the trend of adorning a unique, two-toned, or mixed metal engagement ring has caught on like wildfire in recent times. Read on to know more about this stellar combination.
What are Mixed Metal Engagement Rings?
With the advent of social media, the 21st century is all about embracing uniqueness and defining attributes that set one apart. Whether as an individual or a couple. And, the trend of customizing engagement rings by using separate or contrasting elements from two or more metals to give it their novel look, color, and of course, those enviable glances does just that! This generally constitutes merging an illuminating metal such as white gold or platinum with a more neutral metal such as yellow or rose gold. Often referred to as two-tone engagement rings, people even opt for more metals to give it a one-of-a-kind appeal.
