I was a hardcore white gold/platinum/silver kinda gal until I came across this pretty vintage yellow gold setting recently. Now I’ve started questioning which color metal goes best with my skin tone. My husband says white gold/platinum/silver is the way to go. But I wanted to poll a bunch of ladies to see what you thought. Here’s a pic of me wearing rings in 18kt white, 14kt yellow and 14kt rose gold turned upsidedown purely for color comparison:

I do agree that the Whitegold/ Platnium is amazing but cant lie the rose gold is really catching my eye in this photo!!!! Really looks amazing on you with that gorgeous porceline skin!

You should hunt down some 18 k rose. Your skin is similar to mine. The 14 rose disappears but the 18 is a nice peachy color between the rose and yellow and I loooove it on me. The warmth is soo nice!

I love the rose gold with your skin tone- it’s beautiful!

@pfinarffle: I’d say platinum or rose.
It’s kinda hard to tell skin tone from a picture, though.. it’ll look different on everyone’s screen.
For reference I have really fair “cool” skin, blue eyes, and golden brown hair and platinum looks best on me.
I do love the rose gold, though…

IMO, the yellow gold blends into your skin too much but the white and rose really stand out.

rose…your skin has some yellow undertones that make the yellow blend and the white just not pop but the rose really really pops to me

Rose gold looks the nicest!!!

I think the white looks a bit harsh, and the yellow sort of blends in. The rose gold is lovely though!

Thanks for all the feedback so far! I do have porcelain skin. Or so everyone tells me. Very clear and fair with pinkish undertones, but not like a freckly pinkish. I’m surprised by how positively the rose gold was voted. I secretly had a tendency towards that as well, and actually did look around for the 18kt stuff (my parents have 22kt rose gold bands that are just gorgeous). However, I couldn’t find any good 18kt rose gold items in my limited searches. Ah well. Food for thought!

@jpalm13: That’s not true, there is no visible difference, and 18k rose can crack in the mold and does not offer the same durability as 14k. I spoke to a model maker when I was trying to decide for my ring.

I would choose the Rose gold, but I think the band should be slightly thicker.

I agree with Irish-bride. Love the rose gold but a thicker band (not too much thicker) would show the gorgeous color a little more.
