Mine is 14k rose gold but I guess in certain lights it looks more peachy.

I have a rose gold wedding band. Is that what you mean by “peach” gold?

@taylorkirby:  wow, that’s beautiful and does look very peachy – I love it! I wonder if 14k rose gold looks more pink and 18k looks more peachy? Off topic: what cut is your centre stone? I don’t think I’ve seen a square like that before.

I think the OP might be talking about something a little different:

I personally LOVE those tones, and even have this image saved under “Perfect gold” (image from Pricescope), although it does look more apricot than peach:

 

 

Unfortunately, I have never seen anything like this sold in the US. 🙁

@highschoolhoneys:  Not really.

 

Peach gold is 18K rose gold (higher k makes it look more peachy)

 

Rose gold is 14K rose gold. (lower k makes it look more pink. 10k rose gold is very pink_

 

My e-ring is 18K “peach gold”

 

 

My wedding band is 14K “rose” gold

It’s worth stating that most 18k rose gold is so peach that most people think it’s yellow gold.  It’s not until you put 18K next to 14k rose gold or yellow gold that you can tell it’s peach/rose gold.

I would not buy a peach gold ring, only because unless the wedding band is cast from the same lot of gold, there is almost no possibility that the two will match.

I guess if that doesn’t matter to you then, cool. 14k is easier to match because it is more distinctly pink.

My ring is 18k rose and I find it looks really peachy – I definitely think “peachy” describes it better than “rosy”. It’s an awesome compromise because I was torn between yellow or rose gold and I feel like this is the best of both worlds and looks better against my skintone than 14k rose. I’ve tried on a couple of 14k rose gold bands next to my ring and they look extremely pink compared to the 18k and don’t match well at all. There’s a definite difference.

@letigre:  Yeah, 14k in theory would be more pink because it has more copper elements in it. When we were getting my ring made, we wanted it as pink as it could get but they kept telling us they couldn’t control how the color came out. I have seen 18k look more pink than my ring. Just like @winterwhite:  said, I am afraid when we go to order my band, they will be different colors 🙁
