Affordably priced yet still able to satisfy every girl’s dreams, 14k yellow gold cubic zirconia engagement rings are a pleasant mid-point between less pure 10kt gold rings and more expensive 18kt engagement rings. These yellow gold CZ engagement rings make up a sizeable chunk of the market and are readily available. Since the karat scale is measured out of 24 parts, 14k calculates to a purity of 58.3%. In order to bring the gold content down to this percentage yet sill maintain its natural yellow tone, copper is generally used as its natural color is also yellowish, unlike other metals such as silver, palladium and platinum. Too much copper however can create what is known as ‘rose gold’ which has a slightly reddish tint to it. Alloying is truly a skilful art that requries metals to be added to a yellow gold mix in exact and particular combinations in order to maintain a golden lustre.
