Fixed Rings: What to Pay Attention To
When choosing a gold fixed ring, make sure to pay attention to several important things. In addition to gauge and size, it is also important to choose the right orientation (vertical or horizontal), decoration (type of gem, setting) and type of gold (white or yellow 14k gold).
Main Gem Colors to Choose
Gold fixed rings typically come in various gem colors you can choose. These colors and gem types include: Diamond/clear, amethyst/purple, aquamarine/light blue, blue zircon/medium blue, black, citrine/yellow, emerald/dark green, garnet/dark red, peridot/light green, roze quartz/pink, ruby/red, sapphire/dark blue, alexandrite/grey-purple, blue opal synthetic, white opal synthetic.
Main Gem vs Dangle Gem
What is the main gem versus dangle gems? The main gem is the gem that is attached to the body of the ring. This one typically comes instead of the plain bead that some fixed rings have. Dangle gems are those gems positioned on the dangles. Some 14k gold fixed rings have special dangles under the main gem and these dangles also contain gems. Dangle gems are typically smaller than the main gem but of the same shape and type.
