The purest form of gold used in jewelry dates back to 4000 B.C. However, it was most commonly used during the Georgian and Victorian eras. During this time, gold was used in conjunction with jewels such as rubies and sapphires. Eventually, jewelers realized the value of combining pure gold with other metals to create a harder and less expensive piece of jewelry. Yellow gold engagement rings were extremely popular in the late 1990s and are making a comeback with millennials.

White gold (as we know it today) was invented in the nineteenth century but did not become widely popular until the 1920s. Because platinum was required for so many military purposes, white gold was used in jewelry as a simple and less expensive substitute. It has remained popular over the years, with a significant increase in the use of white gold in engagement rings during the 2000s.
