Why Gold Wedding Rings Are Wedding-Day Winners

Of all the separate items you must pull together for your wedding, the choosing of wedding rings is one of the most important and far-reaching. Gold wedding rings remain a firm favourite, and for good reason: the history, romance, tradition and lasting quality of gold underpin the sentiments and hopes that form the foundation of most marriages.

Alternative Choices

Not everyone is attracted to traditional yellow gold wedding rings. For those that still want a precious metal but are looking for something a little different, white gold rings perfectly fill the gap. In terms of cost it’s similar to yellow gold, so you can get the silvery look you love without paying the much higher price of platinum. White gold is actually an alloy of yellow gold with other metals such as nickel, palladium, manganese or platinum. It’s then given a plating of rhodium to give it the silvery bright finish we’re all familiar with. Without the rhodium, white gold would appear dull with a grey, brown or even pink tinge. Since some people can develop an allergic reaction to nickel in jewellery, it’s usually not included in modern white gold rings, although it may be present in vintage or antique rings.

Gold Gifts for Wedding Guests

Everyone wants their wedding to be remembered through the years, and for this reason it’s common for the bride and groom to give lasting gifts to guests or other key players in the ceremony, such as bridesmaids, flower girls or the parents of bride and groom.

Gold pendants are an ideal choice. Simple designs appeal to most people and create a lovely surprise for everyone who receives such a gift. Heart-shaped pendants are ideally suited to the wedding theme, and the love heart is a motif that’s acceptable to just about everyone.

We have lots of choices for both wedding rings and gold pendants, so feel free to explore our website and browse our range.

If you love your retro clothes or can’t let go of the “Boho” look then opting for retro-styled gold rings makes perfect sense to complete your look. Here at Clogau Gold we have a range of rings that fit the bill perfectly, such as our gorgeous selection of Celtic themed gold rings.  The beauty of the Celtic themes is that they are not only beautiful but full of meaning, with the interwoven strands representing the continual overlapping of either separate parts of life or of two people.

While the Boho Chic fashion trend may have reached its nadir in 2009, there are many who have taken the style to heart and continue to wear it in their everyday wardrobe. The trend has also seen a mild revival in the form of festival wear, which surfaces each summer in the UK. Clogau’s rose gold rings make for great accessories for this style, as our range includes many pieces inspired by nature including both leaf and vine based designs. We also stock a great range of gold pendants that also fit the natural themes present across the Boho trend as a whole. Here at Clogau many of our pieces include rose gold as an integral part of the design. This variation of standard gold gives a softer effect than the traditional sheen; it also works really well with white gold to create a beautiful contrast within pieces of jewellery.

The retro look covers anything older than 15 years, so now even nineties pieces can be considered retro. But in terms of jewellery the retro styles that really capture people’s imaginations tend to come from the twenties and thirties, when art deco was all the range creating pieces of jewellery with sharp lines and contrasting inlays, which is at odds with the modern fashion of curves and continuity. As the option to sell gold items for quick cash has become a popular choice, many antique rings will no doubt have been melted for their gold content and as such lost. This means that many people looking for retro designs will have to buy new rather trawl the antique shops.
