The Most Popular Diamond-Set Metals for Jewelry: Gold, Platinum, and More

by Xclusive Diamonds 09 Jul 2023 0 Comments

When it comes to diamond jewelry, the metal setting can make all the difference. Gold and platinum are two of the most popular diamond-set metals for jewelry, but there are other options available as well. In this article, we'll explore the most popular diamond-set metals for jewelry and why they are so popular.

Gold

Gold has been used in jewelry making for thousands of years and is still one of the most popular metals for diamond settings today. It comes in different colors like yellow, rose, and white gold. Yellow gold is a classic choice and looks particularly stunning with white diamonds. Rose gold has become popular in recent years, and it complements both warm and cool skin tones. White gold, on the other hand, gives the appearance of platinum but is more affordable.

Platinum

Platinum is a naturally white metal and is one of the most durable metals used in jewelry making. It is ideal for diamond settings as it enhances the brilliance of diamonds due to its reflective properties. Platinum jewelry is often passed down from generation to generation as it can last a lifetime.

Palladium

Palladium is a rare metal and is similar to platinum but less expensive. It is a popular choice for diamond settings as it is lightweight and hypoallergenic. Palladium has a lustrous, white-silver appearance that complements the brilliance of diamonds.

Titanium

Titanium is a lightweight, strong metal that is also hypoallergenic, making it a popular choice for those with sensitive skin. While it is not as popular as gold or platinum, it is gaining popularity for diamond settings because of its unique appearance. It comes in different colors like silver, black, and even blue.

Conclusion

Choosing the right metal for your diamond setting is an important decision, as it can affect the appearance and durability of your jewelry. Gold, platinum, palladium, and titanium are all popular options, each with their unique advantages. When selecting a metal, it's essential to consider your personal style, skin tone, and budget. Whatever metal you choose, ensure that it is of high quality and durable to last for years to come.
