    I reallly love rose gold!!!! And, one thing about white gold, if you would like it to be a little warmer, dont get it dipped. I’ve never had my white gold e-ring dipped (I’ve had it 2+years) and the color is pretty, just a little warmer than regular. I dont plan to ever get them dipped for as long as I have them.

    I’m not a fan of rose gold for wedding jewelry. I think it’s too trendy, and it only looks good on certain skin tones. If you’re doing white stones, I personally only like white in white. I also don’t like platinum because of the patina. White gold was the clear choice for me.

    there are different kinds of white gold, they’re not all made with the same alloys. some are yellower than others. if you get the right kind, it does not need to be redipped. my rings are white gold and they are only just the slightest bit yellow. it’s only noticeable if I hold it up against my sterling silver rings. on it’s own, it looks white. 

    honestly, I’d reconsider palladium if I were you.  you really only need to find one good jeweler. you will feel more comfortalbe going back to the same person, and it’s not like you are going to have to do it that often. I have one jeweler that I trust and I will keep going back to her until I move away.

    @hidingpearl:  my shank is 14k rose gold:)  I think rose gold is just so romantic!  looks great with white metals if yoi want a mixed metal stack.  I’ve never seen 10k rose gold, but I imagine it looks more pink than mine.

    AND, I have my eye on a ring like this one as a RHR…so so pretty. I saw it somewhere on the bee and pinned it, but no clue where it came from.

    I have a white gold e ring and a rose gold wedding band. I take my engagement ring off to sleep and shower, but once I’m married, I don’t plan on ever taking my wedding band off. I didn’t want to have to send it out to be redipped. And I love love love how it looks.

    I also have a mixed metal set that I wear every day on my right hand, so mixed metals in my wedding set kind of “matches” my other hand.  I have 2 sisters, and we all have the same stack. We call them our sister rings- they’re white, yellow, and rose gold, one gold for each sister.

    I just  think you can’t go wrong with mixed metals. It makes it reallly easy to wear whatever other  jewelry you want, without worrying about matching.  if you always wanted platinum, maybe you could stick with platinum for your e-ring and go for rose  gold for your wedding band? Or vice versa?  No matter what you choose, I’m sure it will be gorgeous!

    I have always loved rose gold and do not regret my e-ring choice as trendy. I love my recently purchased wedding band in rose gold, too. My set is in 14k. Not sure about the “skin tone” issue….I am pale like Casper the Ghost and I love how the rose gold looks on my hand. I’ve included a picture of the set in warm light.

    @hidingpearl:  I like rose gold on others but when I set my stone it ended up not looking great on me. You really have to go try it on before you decide. Here’s my pic anyway.

    I only like rose gold for a solitaire & On tan or olive skin tones.

    My mother and grandmother have rose gold jewelry, and my parents have rose gold wedding bands. Granted, they’re from eastern Europe, so there’s variation across cultures, but to me, rose gold is classic and timeless, not to mention flattering and romantic. I love it!

    I have rose gold and I love it! I always knew I wanted a rose gold ring. Mine is 14k.

    Things are only trendy for an individual when you stop liking it eventually. I know I will never stop loving my rose gold 🙂
