    I LOVE yellow gold!  “in” or not, I typically wear yellow gold—it just goes best with my skin tone.   That being said, my e-ring is white gold (FI thought it looked more sparkley)….  I commented on your last thread about your ring too—I would love to see it, it sounds gorgeous.  Upload a pic?!

    i think it depends on your own personal style/complexion.  I definitely look better with white gold than with yellow.

    Oh gosh!!! I think the yellow gold compliments your solitare.  It gives it an extra “pop” that I love!   But again, you’re talking to a yellow gold lover!!!    The nice thing is, you could have this stone changed into an identical while gold setting without really changing the gist of the ring (if it’s something that’s really bothering you)

    Me and “what’s in” have never really crossed paths, but I did want to say that while I wear silver jewelry almost exclusively, I ended up with a yellow gold engagement ring.  I actually picked it out myself, too – the jeweler said she could re-make it in white gold, but the stone is a intense green emerald and it looked so much better against the yellow.  There was a lot of wibbling back and forth over whether I was right to pick something not my color… but after a couple weeks I got used to it and ADORE the ring, even if it doesn’t match my watch.

    I live in London and yellow gold is definitely really big here at the moment. I was working in a fashion boutique a few months ago and we didn’t even stock white gold or other white metal jewellery

    I think most people are still on the white metal bandwagon.  I like both colors.  I always thought I wanted a white gold or platinum ring, but then I fell in love with a yellow gold ring.  I hesitated a little but ended up picking out that one.  I think the color looks really beautiful with the blue tones in my center stone (which is a moonstone, not a diamond).  On the other hand, I think white metals look great with sparkly white diamonds.

    I read your other thread and I think you’re trying but you really don’t like the yellow gold.  That’s ok.  I think should ask a jeweler about having your ring rhodium plated to turn the yellow gold into white gold.  Then you have the same ring, just a different color.  Good luck!

    yellow gold has always been my style even though i do have white gold jewelry. i just think that depending on the skin tone will make all the difference.

    I say if you love the yellow gold ring who cares what trends say!  Personally I am a white gold gal, but have seen the rose gold and mixed gold rings have been popping up more frequently.

    I have no idea whether it’s making a comeback or not, but I think your ring is gorgeous. I also agree with some of the previous posters – if you like yellow gold (or whatever metal/style) – go for it. 🙂

    I do have a yellow gold e-ring, but I think I’m only going to wear a plain band after we get married, in white gold, and save the e-ring for special occasions.

    I like the look of both gold colors.  However with my e-ring I would prefer it to be white gold.  As far as my fashion jewlery goes, I love yellow gold.

    Honestly, I like rose gold the best, I wish it would come into style. My wedding band is in white gold, because that’s just the way it came. But I have gone back and forth as to whether or not to get it redone in rose.

    I don’t think yellow gold is making a comeback, but I love it even though my ring is white gold. I just think it’s a totally different look altogether that compliments some skintones, but really it will always be in style. It’s gold!

    I have no idea if yellow gold is coming back or not. I’ve always preferred silver-colored jewelry, so my e-ring and wedding band are both white gold, as well as the other ring I wear everyday on my right hand.

    My MOH’s e-ring and wedding band were yellow gold (she got married a year and a half ago). A few months after she got married she decided she wanted white gold instead, so she had her rings dipped in the silver-colored dipping metal that they use to make white gold (sorry, dunno the name, she just told me she had her rings dipped), and now her rings are white gold.
