Gold Bypass Rings 

A bypass ring, also known as a crossover ring, is a ring with a coil of steel wrapped around the finger without meeting in the middle. At the top of the ring, the ends of the coiled bandpass each other to form the ring. 

The concept of Gold bypass rings has been around for centuries. From the 1830s to the 1860s, this style of ornament was very popular during the Victorian era. There were rings that were made with elegant curves and swirls. Over the years, bypass rings have continued to be used as engagement and wedding rings ever since.

Unlike other styles of bypass rings, bypass rings are distinguished by their design in that the band separates into two parts when worn. It is not a continuous band in this design; instead, it is divided into sections, and the ends are either separated or overlapping, adding texture, detail, and design.

What Are Bypass Rings?

In general, bypass rings are elegant vintage-style settings that are distinguished by their bands twisting, rather than forming a continuous line like the classic style. Bypass rings are a traditional style of ring that wraps around your choice of diamond to the center, emphasizing the diamond's silhouette. A bypass ring also discloses that each line retains its individuality, since both the band and the shank overlap. 

Bypass rings: meanings

What is the meaning of a bypass ring? How can it be used? Typically, bypass rings consist of a single metal band with two ends attached together, each end holding a diamond or gemstone-like gold bypass ring. In this case, the design represents two individuals coming together as one while simultaneously retaining their individuality.

Rings used in the past

It was during the Victorian era that bypass rings became extremely popular. The style of this ring was given as an engagement ring, symbolizing the coming together of two souls into one. As well as the symbolism of union and togetherness, the popularity of the two different colored stones during that era added to the meaning of these stones.

It is believed that one of the most famous bypass rings dates back to the 1950s. The proposal of John F. Kennedy to Jacqueline Bouvier was accompanied by a gorgeous diamond and emerald bypass ring tapered with baguettes. A replica of the Van Cleef & Arpels design is still made to this day. A replica of the ring can be seen at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum in Boston.

Styles of today

Even though the bypass ring is still being given as an engagement ring in today's society, we are also noticing it becoming more of a fashion trend. Through its curves and twists, a bypass ring is given an elegant appearance, while still being sleek and contemporary at the same time. One can either have two stones that bypass each other or a single stone that is intercepted by converging shanks. We have simple, contemporary, stylish, and elaborate styles available. Some of our favorite gold bypass rings are also available on our website.

Gold bypass rings come in a variety of styles

Bypass ring settings, which feature a single-center gemstone connected to a stream of two separate pieces of metal tape, are one of the most common types of engagement rings. A buyer can, however, choose to opt for ring settings with separate yet connected metal lines that will create a mesmerizing view of a solid gem. The design of this ring displays a wonderful asymmetrical loop with a well-proportioned view of it when it is worn face-up. 

It is also possible to set the gold bypass rings with two gemstones which are commonly called the "Me and You" ring design. The ring is frequently associated with the French Moi et Toi, where the ring comes in a variety of variations. Most commonly, a split metal holds two gemstones, each represented individually in a pair, each on top of the other. 

While bypass rings dominate engagement rings, more beautifully crafted wedding bands feature this design. The enhanced vintage styles that emphasize a classic look great with rose or yellow gold.

How to Choose the Best Gold bypass Ring

Is this the first time you are purchasing a gold bypass ring and would like some guidance? In order to make the most informed decision regarding the type of ring, you should purchase, let's take a look at some of the most important factors to consider.

What Karat Should My Gold bypass Ring Be?

The gold karat is the number that tells you how many parts of pure gold there are in a piece of jewelry, out of a total of 24 parts. As an example, 10 karat gold rings contain approximately 42% gold (10 divided by 24), and the rest of the ring is made up of other metals such as zinc, nickel, and so forth.

The higher the karat, the more expensive the gold, as it is purer. Therefore, consider the price when selecting a karat when making your choice.However, there is another factor that is sometimes overlooked: the durability of the gold bypass ring. It is because pure gold is very soft that the lower the karat of your gold ring, the harder and more durable it will be.

Listed below are some simple rules that will help you decide when you should go for a higher or a lower karat of gold:

The low-karat gold rings (e.g., 10k or 14k) can also be worn on a regular basis as they are more resistant to scratching and will require less polishing.

Also, parts of rings made from low-karat gold are less prone to being bent or broken than those made of higher-karat gold.

Gold rings made from high-karat metals (e.g., 18k, 20k, or 22k) are a good option for pieces that you will not wear frequently. As a result, they will appear yellower than low-karat rings, but will also scratch more easily.Rings made of purer gold will also wear down more quickly, and their parts will also be more prone to breaking.

Nickel is present in the gold ring?

Nickel is a metal that is commonly used to add to gold alloys in order to make them stronger. There is a problem with it, however, and that is that it can cause rashes on the skin for people who are allergic to nickel.

If you suffer from such an allergy, then you should probably avoid buying 10k gold rings as the concentration of nickel in them might be too high for you. In some cases, 14k gold bypass rings may be a better choice, but sometimes they can also prove to be problematic for those with allergies.

Make sure that the ring you choose is at least 18k gold in order to be on the safe side. It's true that purer gold rings can still contain nickel, but their concentration is usually too low in higher karat gold for it to cause allergic reactions.

Is it better to have a gold-plated or solid gold ring?

Gold bypass rings aren't always entirely made of gold - some are simply coated with a layer of it and underneath that layer is a layer of another metal. This type of gold-plated ring is usually cheaper than a solid gold ring. In spite of this, the plating will wear off over time, depending on how often you wear the ring.

The general rule is you should only buy a gold-plated ring if you are going to wear it occasionally; otherwise, the plating will not last long. The best way to avoid nickel sensitivity is to make sure the underlying material does not contain nickel or to avoid gold-plated items altogether if you are allergic to nickel. Solid gold rings are better suited to rings that will be worn often since they will be more durable in the long run.

Consider the body of the ring

Make sure that when you look at the gold ring you might want to buy, you also think about how sturdy the body is. When selecting a ring, it is important to keep in mind that it should not be too thin - if it is, it is likely to get even thinner as it is worn, and at some point, it may break.

Due to the soft nature of gold, choose the best gold bypass rings that are reasonably thick so that they won't bend or break after a year or two.
