Yellow Gold

Chances are, if you love classic looks, then you love yellow gold jewelry. Rich and warm, Gemvara's 14-karat yellow gold is 58.5% pure gold. 14K yellow gold jewelry is strong and costs less than 18K yellow gold jewelry. However, our 18-karat yellow gold jewelry is 75% pure gold, giving you a heavier, more luxurious feel when you wear it. An 18K yellow gold ring is more expensive than a 14K yellow gold ring, but you get more gold, which is great for investing.

Countless ancient civilizations, from the Greeks to the Mesopotamians, wore and cherished yellow gold bracelets, rings, earrings, and necklaces. Yellow gold was woven into threads, inlaid in coffins, made into crowns, and used in art. When we think of marriage, we often think of yellow gold band rings or an unending circle of gold, the perfect symbol for a union. Yellow gold engagement rings worn with the bands give off a luminous allure. Diamonds set in yellow gold necklaces and other jewelry contrast nicely offer its owner a charismatic air.

Wear 14K yellow gold stackable rings for instant, on-trend panache with jeans or to a fancy event. You don't need a special occasion to wear yellow gold; 18K yellow gold hoop earrings are great for everyday wear to the office, a cookout, or to events like weddings. That doesn't mean that your yellow gold jewelry can't be opulent - an intricate yellow gold necklace with a heart, knot, key, or cross pendant studded with emeralds and sapphires makes a definite statement about your personal style. Yellow gold jewelry is meant to be enjoyed in any setting.

Gemvara yellow gold earrings, rings, and bracelets are crafted in the USA from responsibly mined or recycled yellow gold. Your yellow gold jewelry can be easily cleaned in warm water with a soft brush and a touch of liquid dish soap.
