    akirasan:  I just got a 10k rose gold RHR for my birthday. I’ve had someone ask me if it was made of copper or brass, lol. Rose gold is really popular here on the ‘Bee, but IRL, you don’t see it much. I absolutely love it, so the comments don’t bother me.

    Can you post pics of your ring?

    Your ring is gorgeous! I voted that my favorite color of gold is rose gold, even though my favorite metal color is white. I much prefer platinum over white gold for many reasons, and I don’t really look good in yellow gold due to my skin tone, but I think rose gold is beautiful!

    Go with what you love! I have palladium for my Ering but am thinking of doing my wedding band in rose gold because love the look of it. Just waiting for them to send me a mockup of the band in rose next to my ering so can decide. Your rings are all about what you love as you’re the one wearing it so if you want to change it because of your preference then do so, if you love the rose gold then stick with it and rock it!

    My e-ring is white gold, but I like all the colors. I would happily wear rose or yellow; I just think white goes best with my skin. I also like the Black Hills gold jewelry with all the different colors mixed.

    I’m not sure if I’ve seen colored gold out in the real world other than a chocolate and rose gold necklace I have. Your ring looks very nice the way it is; don’t change it unless YOU really want to.

    akirasan:  That is gorgeous! I’d keep the rose gold. I am actually hoping to reset my diamond in a rose gold setting eventually. My wedding band is yellow gold and my ering is white(for now). I really like the look of mixed metals. I adore that blue stone in your ring.

    I’m hoping the weather is nice tomorrow. I want to take some glamour shots of my ering in my garden and start a spring ring thread. I’m going to take some pics of my RHR too. It s a rose gold infinity ring, no stones. Its kind of plain for this site, but it was exactly what I wanted.

    I’m a bit confused. Isn’t there no such thing as white gold and what ppl call white gold is really yellow gold dipped/plated To look white? I only ask because then it sounds like you have a yellow gold ring you dipped to be white, then dipped/plated to be rose gold, and now you want to dip again to turn it back to the original yellow? Check with your jeweler- I have rose gold plated earrings and typically rose gold plating is done on top of yellow gold. So I’m saying that your ring is probably yellow gold at it’s base. Depending on how fast your body chemistry wears down the rose and white layers of plating, you should end up w a yellow gold ring at some point. 

    Just look online about white gold. Everybody talks about when it starts looking more yellow and needs to be redipped. 

    That said, I love yellow, rose, and white gold and will be getting all three for my bands. I’ve never seen black gold.

    Shkragoldfish:  white gold is not the same as just dipping yellow gold. It is usually mixed with nickel or palladium to give it a silver color, and then plated with rhodium to make it even more white. Without the rhodium plating it can look buttery, but it is definitely not the same as regular yellow gold.

    I have a rose gold RHR and most people who have asked about it immediately ask if it’s rose gold. It’s not a common metal here, but people definitely seem to know what it is (including some ladies 60+).

    Shkragoldfish:  Unplated white gold has a bit of a creamy, pale yellow tint to it, and does not look as white as rhodium plating, but it is still MUCH whiter than yellow gold and will never turn yellow.

     

     

     

    akirasan:  I love rose gold, so I would stick with that if I was you. Who cares what other people think? But if you do want to change it, then the good news is that you can easily change the colour next time it needs to be replated. Why don’t you just try it out in yellow for a few months and see which you prefer? Since you got it made in white gold you will need to have it plated regularly throughout your life anyways, so you might as well take it as an oppurtunity to try out all your options.
