12 Gorgeous Gold Wedding Rings

If you thought your studies were complete after learning the 4C's, think again. Before you settle on a wedding ring metal, you'll need to learn about one more letter: k, as in 14k, 18k, and 24k gold. For starters, it comes in more colors than just yellow.
  1. Yellow Gold Wedding Rings

    The most recognizable and purest of all the gold tones, yellow gold is combined with different metal alloys for added strength – it's generally about 75 percent pure.
