Does your husband or SO have a rose gold ring or wedding band? If so, can you please post a picture? Do you think it looks too feminine? Some rose golds look like copper or not as pink and some rose golds look really pink…? Thanks

Don’t have pictures on his hand I’m afraid, because we decided to get rose gold with sapphire as our matching wedding bands but haven’t made it yet!

If you’re afraid of it being too feminine, try getting a wider band for your SO.

My FI tried on rose gold and it looks great! We both liked it a lot, but he hasn’t decided yet.
14kt rose is less pink than 10k rose, b/c there is less copper in the alloy mix.

Well I’m torn between yellow gold and rose gold. I was really set on yellow gold bc I thought rose gold would be really pink until I saw one in person and at first I wondered if it was yellow or rose gold bc I couldn’t really tell without them being side by side. I saw that it was rose gold after I walked to a different case that had yellow gold and I saw that rose gold wasn’t as pink as I thought it would be. Now I’m considering rose gold. The dilemma is that my SO and I decided that we want our wedding bands to match each other and we agreed on yellow gold. I don’t know if having a rose gold engagement ring and yellow wedding band would look good together so I asked my SO if he would consider rose gold and he said sure. I am not convinced hahah
I would like he would look okay with it since he has a reddish undertone. And yes, tye wedding band for him would be wide.

My Fi’s wedding band is rose gold. It just looked so nice on him and he loves it!

mslayt: I also wanted my husband and I to have matching wedding bands, but it was important to him to use his father’s original band (his parents exchanged new rings on an important anniversary). That band happens to be rose gold. My engagement ring is a mix of white and yellow gold. I didn’t have a similar heirloom, and introducing a third metal color just to match his seemed a bit silly, so I have a yellow gold band that does not look at all like his (they’re actually extremely similar to the rings itsmeetam posted above!). But in the end we both have rings that we love, and we exchanged them on our wedding day so they are very much a pair.
To sum up, no, I don’t think rose gold is too feminine, and no, I don’t think it’s super important to have a matched pair. Get what you both like! After your wedding all that will matter is what they represent and the happy memories you recall when you look down at them 🙂

Mine does and he gets to wear it in 2 weeks! I’ll send a picture once I have one 🙂
It doesn’t look girly at all. His is a 5mm plain band.

I got him a two-toned ring that will be white gold on the outside and rose gold on the inside. I wanted us to match a little bit 🙂

My husband’s wedding band is yellow gold with rose and white gold inlay. It’s definitely not too feminine.

mslayt: Our rings are all 18k rose gold which will definitely look less pink than a lower karat weight. DH wanted our rings to match and because we both have tanned skintones, the rose gold just glows without looking pinky. I love the softness of it much better than yellow gold.

I also do not have a photo of my husband’s band on his hand. He would not let me buy him gold or anything with stones as he has never worn jewelry so he wanted a “starter ring” to see how well it survived. My set is rose gold with diamond pave, and his is this tungsten band with an inset center of scrolled rose gold filigree. He balks at everything pink or frou frou, but this ring was no issue for him.

My DH’s ring is white and rose gold. We bought and returned 3-4 rings before I found this one for him. I absolutely love seeing it on him.

My fiance likes the idea of our rings “coordinating.” Since mine is rose gold and white gold, he will be getting a mixed metal band as well.
My ring, for reference, (and I will have the band that fits along the curves of the ring, in rose gold):
And the ring he picked out:
