    What size is the stone? With the stone how much does the metal show on the sides? I think either one would look fine

    @adm818:  either look fine!! i personally have rosegold and have really similar skintone to yours and think it looks good but it’s really personal preference in my opinion 🙂  just aesthetically i prefer yellow gold (or rosegold) to white gold/platinum but that is just me and lots of others feel the exact opposite! go with what makes you happier 🙂

    @adm818:  here’s a photo i took of my right hand rings where my green gem ring is yellow gold and my stacking bands on the right are rose gold i think both look good but rosegold a little more soft/romantic in my opinion if that makes sense? honestly i think any of the metals will look great on you! 

     

     

    here’s my ER in rosegold (and stacking band on other finger is also rosegold)

     

     

    here is me trying on my sister’s ring in white gold

    @megs229:  I have a similar skin tone as well and also prefer rose gold!  I think our skin tone can pull off any of the options though, so win win!

    the picture with the white gold/platinum band has a lot of cool coloring to it because of your background.

    the picture with the yellow gold band has an abundance of warm coloring because of your seating

    Your skin looks like it’s got more pink/rose warmth to it so I agree with those saying to try out a rose gold band (but if it brings out more of the pink in your skin, it’s a no go).

    I would try taking your pictures again in the same setting and lighting with the two rings on and see if you get a more clear result. It does look like you can pull off either color metal – the deciding factor for me would be how pink my hands looked. The platinum band looks like your skin is a creamy warm tone so I’d be inclined to lean more in that direction.
