Shining White Gold Engagement Rings

White gold engagement rings are a beautiful and more affordable alternative to platinum.

oval pave halo white gold engagement ring

White gold is yellow gold alloyed with other elements, which gives it a silvery color similar to platinum. 14k white gold is a great choice for engagement rings; it’s more durable than 18k gold and is less likely to show some of its natural yellow colors over time.

Fancy Color Diamonds: a Game of Tones

Fancy color diamonds are vibrant and super valuable. “But wait,” you interject, “I know all about diamonds from James Allen’s diamond education page, which says that diamonds are more prized if they have no color at all!”

That is true. And this is also true. Both sides of the spectrum are rare and valued: colorless diamonds as well as diamonds outside the normal color range. As a rule, the value of fancy color diamonds increases with their color intensity. Color is also determined by the diamond’s primary and secondary hues. Although both fancy color diamonds and gemstones have a distinct color, diamonds have the edge because they have fire return. In other words, only diamonds can reflect light with a special sparkle.

fancy color diamond pink argyle

Fancy colored diamonds give engagement rings and jewelry a unique, vibrant touch. Choose from thousands of fancy color loose diamonds to set in an engagement ring or fine jewelry piece on JamesAllen.com.

Find Your Fancy Color Diamond

Discover the colors that rock:

Yellow Fancy Color Diamonds

Yellow is the most popular shade of fancy colored diamonds, chosen by Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, and tons of others as engagement ring center stones. Fancy yellow diamonds get their color from their nitrogen content. They are often called “canary yellow diamonds,” after the small yellow bird. Yellow diamonds are a beautiful choice, especially for those seeking more affordable fancy color diamonds options.

Yellow Fancy Color Diamond Intensities:

Shop Yellow Fancy Colored Diamonds

Pink Fancy Color Diamonds

Pink is also a favorite choice for fancy colored diamonds, chosen recently by Cardi B for her show-stopping engagement ring halo and by Blake Lively for her center stone. Pink diamonds are extremely rare. They are often called Argyle Diamonds, named after the Argyle diamond mine in Australia where most high-quality pink diamonds are sourced. Not all pink diamonds are Argyle diamonds — every Argyle Mine Diamond comes with an authentic grading certificate.

Green Fancy Color Diamonds

Talk about improving with age — green diamonds are formed over millions of years of beta and gamma ray infusion. As you can imagine, then, they’re among the rarest colors of diamond. Green classically represents growth, nature, and comfort — green colored diamonds convey that all while reflecting light.

Green Fancy Color Diamond Intensities:

Shop Green Fancy Colored Diamonds

Blue Fancy Color Diamonds

Blue diamonds are extremely rare and are caused by their levels of boron. Remember that absurdly large Heart of the Ocean blue diamond from Titanic? The diamond as well as its history of being owned by Louis XVI are fictional, but they’re based in truth: blue diamonds have been sought out by royals and nobility for centuries.

Ashleigh and Justin’s first date started with a fumble: Ashleigh waited with butterflies in her stomach for Justin to arrive, then realized he had pulled up to her neighbor’s house by accident.

Luckily, their relationship led up to a win for them and their favorite football team.

Last year, Justin and Ashleigh hosted a Super Bowl party in their new home. As the New England Patriots clinched their surprise whirlwind victory, everyone in the living room jumped up and cheered. Justin, meanwhile, muted the TV and knelt down on one knee.  

“He said: ‘Now that Brady is receiving his fifth ring, I think it’s time Ashleigh gets her first.’ and he opened a red box with a beautiful diamond ring inside.”

petite pave cathedral engagement ring super bowl proposal

Ashleigh started to cry and embraced Justin in her Patriots gear, surrounded by her closest friends. “The moment was just perfect,” Ashleigh explained. “After celebrating our mutual love for Patriots football, Justin and I were also able to celebrate our undying love for each other.”

How to Take an Awesome Engagement Ring Selfie

Read on for tips on how to become an expert engagement ring-selfie taker and get inspo from our favorite customer ring photos.

How to Take an Awesome Engagement Ring Selfie

We all know the only thing more exciting than getting engaged is posting an engagement ring selfie on Instagram for the world to see! The thing is…you want to show off your precious baby, I mean engagement ring, but you’re no professional photographer.

So here’s how to ensure you’ll make a great photo of your engagement ring that will be the ring envy of all the other girls.

1. STAND OUT FROM THE FEED

Use bright, eye-catching colors that make your engagement ring selfie pop. Also, since most engagement rings don’t have much color in them (unless they’re gemstone rings or include fancy-color diamonds), adding shocking colors to the rest of the composition will help people notice your shot in their Instagram feed.

2. SHOW OFF YOUR KILLER MANI

Nothing shows off your engagement ring bling like a rockin’ manicure to bring out the sparkle. Choose a color that complements your skin tone. Add some funky nail art for extra attention.

3. ADD SOME FUZZ

And by fuzz, we mean cats and dogs – it’s no secret that the internet goes crazy for pets. Loved so much by their humans, The Puppy Proposer has actually become quite a common profession for dogs and will look great in your engagement ring selfie!

4. FINGERS ARE WEIRD. MAKE THEM LOOK GOOD.

Close-up pictures of hands can make your fingers look like aliens. Avoid that by playing with the position of your fingers. Yes, there are less and more flattering angles for your fingers, just like for your hips!

If you’re not having luck finding a nice way to show your whole hand, consider tucking your fingers into a fist, or make your fingers look more elegant by bending them down to your palm.

5. ROMANCE THE STONE

Engagement ring bling is not like any other bling – there is meaning and love behind your ring. Show it! Maybe take a romantic engagement ring selfie of you and your fiancé’s hands intertwined, getting ready for your new chapter together.

7. DON’T BE LAST SEASON

Go with whatever season it is when you’re taking your engagement ring selfie. Give off summer vibes during summer with a cool cocktail at the beach, or a go for a cozy, wintry feel during the winter, with a sweater, a book, and hot chocolate. This helps you stay relevant and makes it easier for people to relate.

Take the engagement ring selfie of the year, the selfie that gets tons of #goals comments from admiring strangers. Make it a real lifestyle shot, showing you living the good life with your ring bling. It’s all about the lifestyle your engagement ring brings you and how it makes you feel.
