    I have had both. Back when DH and I got engaged, yellow gold was the most common and popular. So my first ERing was yellow gold.

    I always wanted white metal, though, for the same reason you listed: my mom’s set is white gold, so that has always been my ideal. Plus, white metals look better on me.

    My current set is platinum and white gold. It’s a dream come true, and I love it!!

    yellow owner here! Before I really started looking at rings I was going with white gold because that’s all I ever really saw on people. Once I started stalking rings and trying them on I felt that yellow gold complimented my skin tone better and felt more ‘me’.

    Yellow gold here. My FI picked it because he’s always felt like yellow gold was timeless. I like that it doesn’t have the upkeep that white gold has

    Mine is white gold, but I absolutely love yellow gold. Which is odd because I used to despise it. Weird how you can change!

    Loribeth:  I had the same experience with my first ERing. I’m sentimental about it, but never loved it like I love my current set. Yours is super gorgeous, by the way! I love how your wedding bands work with your ERing. I bet your set sparkles like crazy!

    I have always preferred white metals on me, so my ring is white gold. 

    I actually quite like the warmth that develops on white gold when the rhodium wears off, so I probably won’t re-dip my set very often. Probably redip the E-ring right before the wedding so that the two bands will match and then we shall see 🙂

    My ordinal set was white gold and when I replaced it I went to yellow gold and I am so happy that I did.

    I have a mix of yellow & white gold. My ering is mainly brushed yellow gold, with a polished white gold bezel setting. My wedding band will be polished white gold.

    Yellow gold here! I have always prefered yellow gold, I find white on my skin too harsh and cold. I love the warmth of yellow gold. Thankfully it turns out I’m allergc to white gold so we exchanged the original ring my FI came me for one in yellow.

    I wanted Yellow 1) because that is the color of gold lol 2) it looks best with my skin and 3) its more “rich” looking by that I mean deep/warm

    Loribeth:  A lot of people have Rose gold.  Did you mean for Rose gold to fall under yellow or other?  I would probably give it its own option.

    My original e-ring was YG and my anniversary ring is Palladium.

    I love my yellow gold e-ring! Yellow gold is really all I wear, so FI knew that was what I’d want my ring to be.
