This is a really interesting post. I want a yellow gold ring maily because I want the classic yellow gold wedding band to go with it. But I live in the UK and yellow gold is FAR more popular than in the US. I usually wear yellow gold jewellery anyway because it lights my skin up more and white gold/platinum just looks at bit too modern/cold to me.

@vanessa- I LOVE your ring!

my engagement ring is white gold, but the wedding band I’ve chosen is both yellow/white gold.  I absolutely love mixing metals and think it’s super chic. I agree with mouse that it’s only a matter of time before the wedding industry catches on!

here’s mine (eep, I hope!). I always thought I would want white gold, but FH picked the ring out all on his own without us ever discussing preference, and I love what he picked!

You’re actually just in time… yellow gold is coming back into vogue. 😉 Mr. Spaniel and I went to pick up my wedding band yesterday and yellow gold settings were ALL over the place. They were still outnumbered by white and platinum, but I can tell this is picking up. Our kids will probably all think white-tone metals are old-fashioned by the time they are in our shoes. 😉

You all are SO right about the Yellow Gold trend.  It (like everything else) is totally a cyclical trend.  When I was young (way back in the 80’s!) yellow gold was all the rage.  My Mom has a white gold wedding set and I remember I used to think that her rings were totally out of style!  I’m sure my kids will someday think that about mine – but who knows, maybe by the time they get married white gold/platinum will be back en vogue!

I love yellow gold! My Fiance picked out my ring and he did a fabulous job.

@spaniel you are so right…my daughter will probably think my white gold is old school just like the way I used to look at my moms yellow gold (now I think it is beautiiful).

I like yellow gold for everyday where but my e-ring and wedding bands are white gold

Although we went with a platinum e-ring & wedding band, I have some yellow gold pieces that I love wearing (including my favorite earrings)! As posted above, this trend absolutely is cyclical (probably prompted by the jewelry industry to sell more rings) and what’s more important is you have a ring that you absolutely love to wear!  Beautiful jewelry, girls!

@ laylabelle and stripes – Thanks! 🙂

@ JoeyEmma – Yes it is!  I love the lotus setting, it’s so pretty, and Sally is wonderful to work with.  Here is a link to the site if anyone reading this is interested: http://www.etsy.com/shop/HeartofWaterJewels

 

I agree with others that yellow gold is making a comeback.  I see tons of yellow gold costume jewelry at places like Forever 21 in the mall, especially places young people shop.  The wedding industry hasn’t caught up yet.
