Yellow Gold Bridal Rings are Trending: Our Top 5 Styles

Classic yet unique engagement and wedding rings.

The most classic shade of gold for fine jewellery, yellow gold is a relatively unique choice for engagement rings and wedding bands. Contrasting beautifully with the white of diamonds, a precious, yellow gold setting offers extra dimension and edge.

Our Senior Bridal Buyer, Ngairie, says, “while yellow gold has always been popular for us at Michael Hill, white gold has by far been the more fashionable colour for new styles in recent years. Recently though, we are seeing the demand for our yellow gold designs increase significantly.”

While yellow gold is on-trend, this beautiful shade is also timeless – especially in a classic pairing with diamonds.

Discover 5 of our favourite engagement ring and wedding band designs crafted with yellow gold settings; including some new-in styles to our exclusive Collections.

1. 1.25 Carat Laboratory-Grown Diamond Ring

Laboratory-grown diamonds are one of the fastest growing trends in bridal and fine jewellery. Whether you’re searching for a larger or more premium-grade stone for your budget, or you’re looking for a considered option (our range of laboratory-grown diamonds at Michael Hill are Certified Sustainability Rated and climate neutral), our exclusive LAB. Certified Sustainable Laboratory-Grown Diamonds by Michael Hill Collection could be the perfect choice for you. Combining a classic solitaire design with a round brilliant cut stone, this best-selling laboratory-grown diamond ring is the ultimate in timeless yet modern style.

2. Wedding Band with 0.25 Carat of Diamonds 

One way that modern brides are creating a point of difference is by replacing the traditional engagement ring with a statement diamond band, or a stack of bands to create an individually unique look. If you love the centerpiece engagement ring design, diamond bands are also trending as wedding rings, eternity rings, and extra additions to a bridal ring stack. Our most popular diamond band of the moment is this timeless, claw-set style with 0.25 carat total weight of diamonds.

3. 1 Carat Oval Laboratory-Grown Diamond Ring 

A classic engagement ring design featuring a unique diamond shape is the perfect way to achieve an understated point of difference. Pear, marquise, and emerald cut diamonds are all timeless yet unexpected options; but the top trending shape is the oval cut. This beautiful solitaire ring featuring a 1 carat, oval cut laboratory-grown diamond is one of our best-sellers.  

4. Designer Vintage Floral Halo Ring 

For those who love a stand-out look, the unique, creative halo trend is the perfect inspiration. Discover intricately detailed styles, with mixed diamond cuts, floral-shaped halos, or modern ‘scatter’ designs; each of which offers an out-of-the-ordinary engagement ring. One of our most-loved unique halo rings is this Vintage Floral design, from our signature Sir Michael Hill Designer Bridal Collection.  

5. Double Halo Ring with 0.71 Carat of Diamonds 

Another major trend in engagement rings for 2023 is known as ‘hidden details’. This refers to subtle, unique touches which give your ring added individuality. As details that only you and your loved one know about, they’re especially sentimental. If you love this idea, our Sir Michael Hill Designer Bridal Collection features a hidden pink sapphire in each engagement ring; with many styles also including secret pavé diamond details also known as hidden halos. This beautiful double halo ring is among our best-sellers.
