Contemporary Gold Engagement Rings by Keith Farley

In this group of pages, I present a small selection of gold engagement rings I've made. In that I'm able to provide MANY more examples of platinum engagement rings, I suggest that you investigate that area to get a better idea regarding the types of rings I make. I'll happily discuss the possibility of making gold engagement rings, either of white gold, yellow gold, or rose gold.

If interested in seeing more of what I've made, please contact me at (859) 448-1071 or email me at farley@artwork-inform.com. For your convenience, this same contact information can also be located at the top of each page.

white gold  engagement ring
The white gold engagement ring seen to the left is at the same time classic and playful. The ring is made of an 18K white gold alloy that's intensely white and quite comparable to the color of platinum. Please click on the picture to the left to view a larger version of this ring.
Seen to the right is a picture showing two views of a white gold engagement ring in which a sapphire has been set. The shape of the engagement ring is quite simple, yet complex enough that the ring takes on an organic character. Please click on the picture to the right in order to go to the page on which this engagement ring is described .

Clicking on the picture of the white gold engagement ring seen to the left will take you to a page on which you'll be able to find out more about this ring and provide larger photos to further clarify its appearance. Please click on the picture to the left to visit the page about this ring.
The ring seen to the right has been made of an intensely white gold, although it could certainly be made of platinum or palladium instead. The stone that is set in the ring is a Chatham created Padparadscha sapphire. Sapphire occurs in a great number of colors, this being one of the more unusual ones.

18K engagement ring
To the left is a picture of an18 karat gold ring with a one carat center diamond and a series of three smaller diamonds descending down one side. The ring itself has two separate levels. The lower one has been brought to a high polish while the higher surface has been highly textured. These textures very much complement one another, creating a strong visual drama. Please click on the picture to the left to visit the page about this ring.

To the right is a simple and versatile yellow gold ring that could easily be used as an engagement ring. It steps beyond the notion of the plain and inconsequential solitaire ring that is so commonly seen today. Despite its simplicity, it has enough body and strength so as not to be easily damaged. The choice of diamond size is very subjective. A smaller stone, perhaps as small as .70 carat, would seem every bit as appropriate as a larger diamond weighing several carats. The one seen in the picture weighs 1.29 carats. Other shapes of diamonds may also suit this ring. To view a larger picture of it, please click on the thumbnail icon to the right.

Similar in many respects to the ring above, this one differs primarily in the fact that the corners of the portions that surround the stone have been truncated, thus directing the eye inward toward the center diamond. It also has a slightly elevated area on either side of the ring where five diamonds have been set. The combined weight of the small diamonds is around .30 carat. The main diamond weighs 1.23 carat and is securely set in a six prong head. The ring shown is made of 14 karat gold, although it could as easily be made in 18K or platinum. This is a very sturdy ring that will last for many years. Please click on the picture to the left to view a larger version of this ring.
