If you’re looking for a beautiful engagement ring that’s a little different from the rest then you might want to consider a yellow diamond engagement ring. Sometimes called canary diamonds, yellow diamonds can range from bright and vibrant shades of yellow to pale and golden tones.

Yellow gems can be set into simple solitaire designs, intricate halos and even trilogy designs that rival Meghan Markle's sparkler. They can be set with clear diamonds for a contrast or yellow to up the golden vibes, it's totally up to you. We reckon whichever design you choose, your engagement ring is guaranteed to stand out from the crowd thanks to the dazzling and totally unique coloured stone at its centre.
