Rose gold has been around forever and is a classic color.  As it has happened with other metals, rose gold is trendy now.  Decades ago yellow gold was trendier.  Go with what you love.  Regardless of which gold color you pick, it will be timeless and classic.

Rose gold is gorgeous. That’s what I originally wanted but when my fiance and I were looking at rings, the jeweler advised against rose gold saying it could just be a “fad” so I listened and went for yellow gold. I LOVE my ring and don’t have regrets, but I wish I wouldn’t had let someone else sway my decision – even if that person is a professional jeweler lol

I say you should get whatever you like!

I rarely see rose gold rings in jewelry stores if at all. I’ve had women snatch finger asking if my rings were rose gold and just loving the color. Exclaiming they’ve never seen it person. I love the color and wouldn’t change them at all.

I think it is but who cares?! It’s gorgeous and romantic! My original e-ring was yellow gold (2001), and I upgraded to white gold, which was trendier when I upgraded. Now, yellow gold and rose gold are back. It truly does not matter, IMO. I’m currently waiting on my anniversary ring from James Allen, in rose gold!! I can’t wait! 😍 I say go for rose gold!

I have a rose gold ring. I’ve never seen anyone in person with a rose gold e-ring so I don’t think they’re trendy in my area.

It’s quite trendy at the moment but as everybody says, it’s been around a long time. 

Do try it on though, I love lots of the rose gold rings on here but it looks TERRIBLE on my pinkish white skin tone, just awful. On other skin tones it looks amazing.  I like yellow gold but my skin makes that look cheap too somehow. I’ve worn white metals almost exclusively for years. My first wedding ring and engagement shank were yellow gold because I got them in 1990 just before white gold took off here in the UK and platinum was way out of budget.

Rose gold is older than white gold lol. My grandmother’s e ring and wedding ring are both rose gold and they are from 1942! I have worn rose gold for 21 years since my Dad bought me a rose gold necklace for my 16th birthday. It’s definitely not just a trend! It has just become more popular recently is all. If you love it, get it. I am currently waiting on my own rose gold e ring arriving so I am a bit biased, but I have wanted one for over 20 years lol.

martinson18 :  Personally… Yes I do think rose gold is on trend right now where you’ve seen rose gold in more than just e-rings. 

However, they are beautiful regardless! I own two rings in Rose gold, one in 9k and one in 14k, and definitely don’t get bored with them. I know what you mean, in the UK when ring shopping it’s mostly white metal and if your lucky you may get to see some yellow gold so rose gold is hard to see. I would definitely go see it in person and the different k in gold, also when you choose a place for your ring to view their version of that k in rose gold. The reason I say this is because I found that it still varies from shop to shop on the rose golds appearance even though it’s supposed to have the same gold content. 

So I think it is a trend but at the same time can be timeless too. If it’s something you love then there is a high chance you won’t get bored with it.

Yes definitely, my grandmother got married during the Second World War and she had rose gold, it was hugely popular then. But by the 70s it was kind of seen as”old lady jewellery”. But now it’s in fashion again, so everything comes in cycles. Your children might think it’s dated, but your grandchildren will love it. That’s how styles work. 

I think white gold is more likely to go out of fashion and stay out. It became fashionable because it was cheaper than platinum but all my white gold is a pain to keep looking shiny.

martinson18 : I love rose gold too. It could well be a trend that comes and goes but if you truly want it I don’t think you’d worry too much. If you love it, go for it!

Probably, but actually depending on the copper percentage sometimes you can’t even really tell. My husbands and my rings are rose gold because my husband thought it went better with his skin tone. Unless you hold the rings up to a yellow gold, you can’t tell they are rose gold. They just look like a beautiful gold.

I think with weddings and jewlrey though, it’s incredibly hard to be timeless unless you go very very basic (and that might not be what you like). I would just say screw it and wear what you love. My mom has a 70s pear diamond engagement ring and up til 3 years ago I thought “oh I would never want a pear, how could she have liked that!” and now pears are everywhere and I think “oh, her ring is so gorgeous.” and she’s loved the whole time.

This is how I rationalzed my lace mermaid wedding dress. It may be trendy but i LOVED it on my wedding day and I will always love it in pictures! I don’t care if in 15 years my snotty pre-teen thinks it looks “sooo 2016” 😛

I wouldn’t say rose gold is trendy… I don’t know anyone my age with anything other than white gold. I have rose gold though, and I love it! Trendy or not, it suits me best. White gold is not my style at all, and my fiancé decided between yellow and rose gold for me. His wedding band has rose gold in it, too.

I think rose gold is really pretty! I almost had a rose gold necklace last year as my xmas present but when I tried it on at the store I noticed that it didn’t suit my somewhat yellowish skin tone. So I think that would be the first step, to see if the colour compliments you. 

To whether it’s a trend or not… I would say it’s quite fashionable at the moment. All my Pinterest ring feeds are rose gold! But on the other hand, white gold is still hugely popular and most people go for that. So it’s still a little more different, regardless of the more recent surge in popularity.

Yes it is having a moment right now for sure. I much prefer 18k rose gold because it’s subtle and not coppery like 14.

I think that YES, rose gold is a trend–but a really pretty one that may stick around and become a classic eventually. I wish I could wear rose gold but I’m allergic to the alloys 🙁
