So…after a lot of thought and upping our rather small budget, I decided on this ring with a .3-.4ct center stone, and in white gold. With a total price of around 1400-1500.
I was just looking on etsy and I found the exact band but in rose gold and with a moissanite (which is completely fine with me.) I’m not a “must have diamond” girl. The price is WAY lower, and makes me feel so much more comfortable buying it. I also really love the warmth of the rose gold and I feel like the diamonds stand out more with it. I’m just worried 10-15 years from now I feel like its dated. I really want a timeless ring.

I like rose gold, but I wouldnt want it for an Engagement Ring because I do feel like it is trendy, I’d pick the white in your scenario. That said- I’m more of a yellow gold girl which is a bit out of fashion right now I guess, but I don’t feel like its a trend.

I like the look of Rose gold, but do feel that it’s a trend. If you feel you want something timeless, a safe bet is white or yellow gold. As the PP said, yellow gold is not the fashion right now, but it IS timeless. I feel like Rose gold is too “new” to know if the trend will turn timeless. Good luck 🙂

- Wedding: April 2013 - A court...
The second ring you posted is available in white gold as well… & it’s trendy here but I’ve never seen them irl. I vote for either in white gold, I never really liked rose gold (unless it just has rose gold details) since it doesn’t look good on my skin tone & looks like copper.
Eta, but that’s for me, if you like rsow gold more then if course I vote for that!

Rose gold has been around forever, but it definitely is trending right now. That means that you can find vintage rings from your grandmother’s generation made from rose gold, but that it is rather new in jeweler’s cases. Tiffany recently released their Rubedo line, so rose gold or rose-toned metals are strongly trending.
I’ve always felt it was important to get the ring style and metal colour that you love the most, regardless of whether it was currently popular or not. When you look down at your ring in 20 years, will it matter if it was trendy when you bought it if you still love it?

@mgk0813: I’ve been wondering the same thing. Im not a fan of yellow gold, but if I could find a rose gold that’s more orangey than pink I think I might just take the chance That it’ll look outdated later

Yes it’s trending right now. I’ve always liked the color though.
If you like it, get it.

Sure, it’s trendy right now, but it’s not like it was just invented. It’s been around forever! I have rose gold and I don’t care if it’s trendy right now–if in 50 years someone says, “Whoa, your wedding set is so twenty-teens,” I’ll say, “Yep, because I’ve been married fifty years!”

I’ve never been a fan of rose gold. But for some reason I’m really drawn to the ring in the rose gold. I didn’t see I can get it in white gold now, so that’s a big plus! I’ll probably scrap getting it from blue nile at all now. I’m don’t typically spend much money on myself (we have 3 kids) so I was really dragging my feet getting that ring.
There’s so many decisions to make!

and that makes sense. When you say that….its like duh. There’s nothing wrong with that.
I think I might go with the rose gold. I can’t stop thinking about it!

If by trendy, you mean it’s increasingly more common, then yeah I’d say so! TBH, I see a lot more platinum and white gold than I do rose gold off WeddingBee.

@mgk0813: I think rose gold is timeless and soooo feminine. I actually love it and initially wanted it for my e-ring. (I ended up switching because Fiance and I decided to design it together and he wanted a white metal but I’m still planning to get a RHR).
Anyway, it definitely seems to be popular right now but I woudn’t call it trendy. It’s like halos, they’re uber popular now and people call them “trendy” but they’re actually a vintage style from the 20’s. I think of trendy as something that is here today gone tomorrow. All the best things cycle in fashion, style and even rings so rose gold is just having a “hot” cycle right now. Rose gold will still be beautiful, classic and timeless when people move on to the next hot thing.

@mgk0813: Rose gold has been around forever like some others have said. The best advice I can give you is don’t overthink and pick what you love now. You will only drive yourself crazy thinking “what if I don’t love it later” because frankly we can get sick of anything. Just enjoy wearing what you love now and worry about the rest later. Trust me I used to do the same thing but I have learned just to let go of the “what if” ring thinking.
Trends will come and go. Soon white gold will be “dated”… yellow or some other metal will be back in … then someone will say “I love yellow but I feel its trendy” when it’s been around for ages.

I have a rose gold engagement ring. The setting is antique, from 1910. My grandparents wedding set was rose gold, so for me it is just always been an option. I inherited a bunch of jewellery from my grandma and it’s all rose gold. i love it. It suits my skin tone. Also if someone can date my engagement, I’m ok with that!
