Gold rings, from vintage to modern designs
Is it your dream to own a unique gold ring? For example, a classic design with a diamond or a gemstone? Or do you want a ring that stands out to make a statement? At Oro Jewels we have various options in yellow gold, white gold and rose gold. Oro Jewels understands the value of a ring that has a meaning, which is why we specialize in curating quality vintage gold rings and put together our collection with great care.
How do you recognize a real gold ring?
Quality is our number one priority. Our goldsmith has more than 30 years of experience and always tests our jewellery for gold, gemstone, and solidity. In addition, every ring from Oro Jewels, both vintage and own collection, has a gold stamp. This is a guaranteed quality mark indicating the karat of the ring. With us you can be sure that you are purchasing an authentic ring of value.
How much does a gold ring cost?
Not every gold ring is of the same value. Numerous factors determine the price of a gold ring. For instance, consider the number of karats and the complexity and time of the craft.
The karat is an important aspect for the price of a gold (vintage) ring. In its purest form, gold metal is too soft to make jewellery. That is why it is mixed with other types of metal, creating an alloy of different metals. The karat represents the percentage of gold in the alloy. The purest gold is 24 karats. A 14-karat ring therefore contains 14/24th gold, or 58.5%, which gives it the stamp 585. The same applies to a 9-karat jewel (which gets the gold stamp 375) or an 18-karat gold ring (gold stamp 750). In the Netherlands, 14k gold is most common.
Furthermore, it is important to pay attention to the mass of a ring, heavier and larger rings contain more gold and are therefore more valuable. Another crucial point is also the design and style of the ring, does the ring contain diamonds or other gemstones? This will also be reflected in the price. Bear in mind that age and rarity play a major role as well, thus the historical and unique character of vintage gold rings should certainly be considered.
What does a gold ring weigh?
The weight of a gold ring can vary greatly depending on its design, size, thickness of the shank and any gemstones or diamonds set into it. In our collection, the weight varies from a more refined design, for example the tiny twist ring, to somewhat heavier designs, such as the balloon ring. At Oro Jewels we are happy to help you find the ideal ring that suits your taste and wishes.

Caring for your Oro Jewels: A Guide for Generations
After you have found the ring of your dreams, it is good to know how to best maintain your jewellery. Are you not wearing the jewel? Your jewellery will be optimally protected if you store it in a dark, dry place. Like in our Oro Jewellery Box. Additionally, you should take off your jewels when you exercise. Although gold will not discolor, sweat can reduce its shine. Also pay attention to products such as perfume, lotion or make-up and avoid contact with cleaning products.
Why choose a ring from Oro Jewels?
At Oro Jewels we put together our collection with a lot of care and love. We choose vintage gold jewellery based on character. If you're looking for a timeless, stylish or striking gold ring, we have a carefully curated collection of unique designs that you won't find anywhere else. Sustainability is a big priority for us. In the collection which we design, we make sure we don’t overproduce by only having a certain amount of jewellery that’s ready to buy and afterwards we only start the production process if a jewellery piece gets sold.
We produce locally, we work with recycled gold, ethical diamonds and we give many gold vintage jewels a second or even third life. The range at Oro Jewels includes unique vintage gold rings and our own designs: our Oro Classics collection. These vary from, for example, the golden trio ring to the intertwine ring. Regardless of personal style or preference, all jewels are of high quality that can withstand the test of time. At Oro Jewels, beauty is in every millimeter and every experience.
