@MossySmith:  Honestly I have seen it on here a lot, but have not once seen anyone in real life with one.  I say if you love it, go for it!

I used to work in the wedding world, and yes it seems to me that rose gold is becoming more and more trendy. That being said if you truly like it then don’t bother with caring that it’s a trend.

Really at the end of the day if you want a gold engagement ring it’s going to be white, yellow, or rose (red and green as well I suppose, but I have honestly never seen a red or green gold engagement ring). Those aren’t a lot of options.

It’s definitely a current trend, but those come and go. On the bright side, it means it’s far easier now than, say, three years ago, to try a variety of styles in rose gold at any store. You won’t have to try settings in white or yellow, imagining what it will look like when it comes in from being specially ordered. If you love it, enjoy it!

I don’t know anyone irl that has a rose gold set, but I do think it is getting more popular. I have a rose gold morganite RHR which is definitely trendy at the moment I think.

@MossySmith:  First of all…..you only have a handful of metals to choose from in the first place.  So IMO– in a real life setting– I have never seen a rose gold set.  In fact, I have never seen a piece of jewelry that is actually rose gold on anyone.

Because there are really only a few metals that will stand the test of time– I would say that rose gold is the least “popular” of them.  (I’m including white gold, yellow gold, platinum, palladium, rose gold and sterling silver (which I wouldn’t really recommend))  There’s also stainless steel– which I know lots of men use for their rings, but I have yet to see a woman have an ering with stainless steel.  I had the coolest stainless ring with a few CZ stones in it a few years back– it was by the far my most favorite piece of jewelry I owned, but I lost it)

 

It doesn’t really matter how “popular” a metal is that you want– you need to get what you want, instead of trying to go against what other people want.

As much as I understand not wanting to show up to the ball in the same dress as everyone else….sometime it just happens that you like what others like.

@MossySmith: Almost all the pinterest feeds I see and a lot of the chatter on these boards talk about RG rings. Like most everyone else here, I haven’t seen a rose gold ring IRL. I’ve seen RG necklace pendants and earrings but no rings. I think if it’s something that you like then you should go for it, but I would have some questions about longevity. I know with white gold they usually need replating after wear, but I’m not sure about RG. Have you researched that?

I have to agree with what’s been said so far. There are only so many colours of metals to choose from, so that automatically means that no metal is all that unusual. And rose gold is trending right now (and Tiffany even introduced their Rubedo line), but even so, it isn’t nearly as popular as white metals continue to be. I’ve never seen anyone with a RG ring IRL, so they are overrepresented online, IMO. But most of all, no one will look at your ring nearly as much as you will. Get what you love, not what you think is “unique”.

I would say rose gold is more popular but not new, maybe trendy even…. yellow Gold and platinum have been around for 150+ years as rings and white gold also. I have a rose ish ring from germany from the 1880’s, really its 14k yellow gold but the stuff they mixed with gold made it a what today would be called “rose”. 

If you like rose gold get it, but yes in 20 years people may think it is trendy from the 2010’s if the setting has a bunch of miligrain/halo ect that is very popular now. But if it is more classic in design then it wont look dated just different. 

On the Bee you are going to see a LOT of styles/stones/colors over and over but it is just because you can. Ive seen very few a rose gold R-ring/sets IRL. I have also seen very few halo’s IRL but it seems EVERY one has one or the other here lol. Its that the Bee is so condensed. 

I have YG but you would never think it was from the 80’s, I think the style of ring has more to do with how unique it is then the color gold.

I have a rose gold wedding set that I custom picked based on my skin tone. I get comments multiple times a week (it’s actually a running joke in my family how often it happens) about how unique it is and everyone says “I’ve never seen rose before!!!” 

 

I say go for it. But be prepared if you’re buying from a chain. Most stores don’t keep it in stock regularly and I had to have them all custom ordered by the vendors into the stores.

@MossySmith:  Yellow, white, and rose gold have been around forever. I don’t think any of them can be consindered “trendy”. Get what you want!

If you really want to be different, get one with all 3!

It’s trendy, yes. But if you really love it, isn’t that what matters?
