Rose gold has been used in jewelry since before both white gold and platinum. But yes, it’s more popular now. Some is subtle and some less so. Pink metallic iPhones and such are trendy but a well made piece of rose gold jewelry can still be classic.

Rose gold has been around forever. Trends are cyclic. I have a rose gold engagement ring, and I only know one other person IRL (who lives in a different state) with a rose gold ring. I don’t think I know anyone in my age range with a yellow gold ring IRL. We had a really hard time finding rose gold rings for me to try on even in a major city. While we might see it on these boards a lot, I don’t know that that’s really representative of the general population.
Go with what you love and with what complements your skin tone. Rose gold looks best on me by far.

I think it is popular right now, but if you love it, you love it! If it makes you happy to look at, I would not worry if it is trendy or not.

I’ve loved rose gold for years. I think it’s popularity may wane in coming years but if you get a ring that you love, you can/will still love it many years from now.
I think it’s similar to the “trend” of minimalist rings and stones that have been popular in recent years. Years from now there will still be people who love rings that are dainty or simple even if the popularity of the trend has passed.

martinson18 : I think so. I opted for rose gold because my grandma has a ring when I was little that was RG and I’ve always loved it. I picked mine because I always had it in mind, bit I am seeing RG more and more although I haven’t seen any other wedding sets IRL.
If you really love it I say go for it! I love my set!

I was looking at old antique rings this past week – rose gold was also HUGE in Victorian times, and again in 1920s. It goes through phases – and this is just one of those times. It’s like that rose colour that’s coming back right now for bridesmaid dresses – I’ve seen it with a couple different names (like silver rose, or champagne rose) – back in early 1990s we called it Dusty Rose. My whole room was that colour. My whole wardrobe was that color. Then everyone got tired of it and it disappeared for 20 years. (Dusty rose dress image – what everyone was wearing to grad in the 1990’s!)
So – if you love rose gold then go for it!! It never totally disappeared – I got a wedding band in 2001 in rose gold for my son’s birth – it was always around just not as much as now.

I was just given my great grandmothers rose gold wedding band, so I would say it isn’t a trend 😉

Thank you everyone for your thoughts and encouragement! I guess I never took into consideration that no matter what ring/metal I choose it will evenutally look dated. Thank you for making me realize this! I am going to try on rings at a store to be sure, but I think my heart is set on the rose gold!

Sorry not the best picture but in my own humble option, I think it’s not all about if it’s a ” trend” or not but more about which metal suits you more as a person. Rose gold goes more with my style as a person so you should pick which colour metal goes best with your personality and which your are most compftable wearing. Hope this helps a bit 🙂
