Wait…I know Alexandrite as the stone that changes color? My friend has one that goes from dark green to purple, but others can be pink, red…Is this the gem you’re talking about? 

Thinking of her ring, I think that rose gold would complement the color really nicely.

I haven’t seen any combos of Alex with rose gold, but I think any tone of blue and red goes with rose gold. Plus is most of your jewelry is rose gold your wrong will match everything!  Maybe look up amethyst, blue Saphire and rubies set in rose gold to get a sense of all the different looks.

I have an Alex ring set in rose gold. But it is natural Alexandrite and goes from emerald green to ruby red, and I feel like those colors go well with rose gold. Not sure about how it would look if the colors were different.

An alexandrite gem is gorgeous with rose gold! And learning how it can change colors is sweet! It’s like a mood ring, but it changes whenever on a given day. Thanks for the thread OP, I like to look at more pics!

Just being set on white gold for me and not at other metals kind of has close-mindedness written all over it. I like to keep my options open if I decide to go for an RHR, or another band to go with my future stack 😉

I have one in yg – it goes purplish pink inside to teal blue outside but can also be darkish green in lcd light  and ruby red in incandescent  or candle light. I love it. A jeweler thought it was natural… i do not know as i got it 2nd hand (was advertised as amethyst)  but color change is super cool tho! 🙂 I think between rg and wg I would choose rg.

Rose gold! And you might have inspired my next project!

I’m going to be the lone voice of dissent here. If most of your jewelry is rose gold, you could make your e-ring stand out by making it a different color. Speaking for myself, I wouldn’t want my e-ring to just blend in. Lab alex is a cool (as opposed to warm) color and I think cool colors go better with white metals. 

In the end, of course, do what you want!

I have an Alex! Mine is in platinum, so white, but my band is going to be gold. We chose green gold because it best suits my tastes, but rose gold was something we also considered. In my opinion alex looks good next to just about any metal. Having that said, a friend of mine is actually considering an alexandrite ring in rose gold, with white side stones. She wasn’t sure what it would look like, so I mocked up some pictures for her; maybe they’ll help you decide too:

cursiveline :  I have an alexandrite pendant set in yellow gold, but I think rose gold would look lovely!
