our metals

our beloved by bluboho engagement rings are handcrafted in 14k recycled yellow gold, but we can create timeless, heirloom-quality white gold, platinum, or rose gold engagement rings upon request. read on to learn about the nuances of our metals.

gold 101

all gold used in jewelry is an alloy: this means that pure gold is blended with other metals for improved durability— and therefore wearability.

the percentage of gold to other metals varies with the type of gold:

  • 14k is 58.5% pure gold
  • 18k is 75% pure gold
  • 22k is 91.75% pure gold

safe for most with allergies and sensitivities, our rose gold and yellow gold are nickel-free and hypoallergenic.

14k is our gold standard for everyday wear

we want your engagement ring to be heirloom quality so it will last a lifetime— just like your love story. we create the majority of our engagement rings in 14k recycled yellow gold for optimal durability and quality.

our iconic sapphire engagement rings mostly feature delicate, fine bands. in order to ensure their longevity, we opt for 14k gold that will withstand everyday wear without compromising on design.

our gold

if you dream of a white gold, 18k yellow gold, or rose gold engagement ring, get in touch— we can make that happen!

yellow gold

our pieces are made in a soft, buttery yellow gold that is universally flattering on all skin tones, mixing beautifully with other metals.

rose gold

beautiful and popular across centuries and eras, rose gold is a gold and copper alloy that lends a romantic rosy glow to jewelry. our rose gold is nickel-free and largely hypoallergenic.

white gold

created by plating yellow gold in rhodium, white gold lends its jewelry a silver hue with a heightened durability. please note that white gold pieces may need to be replated every few years.

14k, 18k… what does it mean?

gold is beloved for its beauty, and it comes in various colours and karats, most frequently 10k, 14k, and 18k for jewelry— the higher the karat, the more saturated the colour of the gold and the softer the metal. the majority of our pieces are made in 14k recycled gold, which is preferred for the durability and longevity of your pieces, making them heirloom-quality. our 14k gold is a soft, buttery hue that compliments all complexions, contrasting beautifully with our array of ethically sourced sapphires and diamonds.

recycled gold 101

we want you to have an engagement ring you can feel good about wearing forever.

using recycled metals helps us to live out our values by decreasing negative environmental impact; by using recycled gold for our engagement rings, we are not contributing to mining for new resources, therefore lowering the carbon footprint of our pieces and helping to reduce waste.

where does recycled gold come from?

post-consumer recycled gold can come from a wide variety of sources, such as other jewelry, electronics, and many others. our recycled gold is always refined to its purest form and undergoes testing to ensure our pieces are always heirloom-quality.
