I see white gold all over, but I’d love to se some yellow gold : ) Rose gold is fine too.
Here’s my ring (well, my PicsArt depiction of my ring that I created on Xoom, lol). The original ring is platinum and I added the gold tone so bear with me. It’s not what the ring will look like when it’s made.

I always come out of lurking for the yellow gold threads… 🙂

My engagement ring is yellow gold. The wedding ring will be rose gold, though I don’t have a picture of that yet 🙂

I love yellow gold! I don’t know why it has a bad rap. I’ll never have to worry about replating it and it glows!

@bunnyharriet: I just re-set my ring in yellow gold from white gold and I love it!

@starbuck: What are your stones? Your rings are beautiful!
@MrsVandykins: I can’t help but chuckle when I hear “yellow gold has a bad rap” or “isn’t in fashion”… gold is naturally well… GOLD colored… or “yellow” (ok, it’s NOT really yellow, never was called that for anything other than when I looked for an ering… but I get this is a BIG DEAL, WE CALL IT THIS IN ERINGS!). I get ANY gold is mixed with alloys and it isn’t pure so it isn’t fragile… but if we don’t use alloys changing it’s natural color it’s still “gold colored” or if you’re shopping for an ering “yellow gold!” … I don’t see why it’s called “yellow gold” when looking for an engagement ring when any other time it’s just “gold” (in every state in the US and other countries I’ve been in). Any other time I’ve looked for bracelets, necklaces, earings, even other rings it’s just “gold” if it’s gold colored. Weird to me lol! I am seriously NOT trying to pick here, I’m honestly curious why it’s such a big difference in describing gold in an ering vs everything else?
I at least get “white gold”, you’ve used silver alloys to make it as white as possible, and I see where calling it silver gold could be confusing, even if it IS silver in color, white gold signifies it IS gold and white (silver) in color as opposed to just being silver or silver plated. And then there’s rose gold. Rose isn’t really a color, it’s a flower, with lots of possible colors. I really enjoy the “rose gold” color, but why do they call it “rose gold”? I am NOT being snarky I promise, I’m honestly curious. I recently learned about black hills gold and that was FUN (look it up!).
Anyhow, here’s mine, in gold (best for my skin tone), a very not traditional solitaire, but so wonderful to wear as it’s comfy.

These are just beautiful! I will definitely be getting a GOLD gold ring when it comes my time 😉
starbuck, I must know, forgive me if it’s rude, but who designed/made your rings? They’re utterly gorgeous! They remind me of something from Egyptian or Byzantine times… I don’t actually know any art history, lol, what I mean is they just look really ancient in a lovely way!

Eeeeee my ring will be yellow gold! The original ring was platinum so we’re having it custom made in gold.
As much as I like the white colours, yellow matches my skin tone (blonde with pinkish skin tones) MUCH better!

I wear mostly silver and WG jewelry, but I had to have YG as my wedding set. Classic, timeless, warm, and never needs that pesky re-dipping. Here’s all 3 of mine, but I don’t wear them like this. The channel set I swap in for the orginal contoured plain band once in a whle, or wear it as a RHR. The little blue stones on the e-ring are sapphires. Unlike many bees, I LOVE metal. Diamonds are ok too…haha

I love my yellow gold. Haven’t decided whether I want yellow or rose for my wedding band though…

@starbuck: I love rose cut stones! Are those diamonds?
@JustLove25: The yellow gold looks way better than the white gold. It makes the diamond stan out more.
@MrsTangerine: I envy you. I’ll have to take my ring off every night, but you get to wear yours 24/7. I doube there is another like it. If someone had described the idea to me, i would have said, “Hello no! A marquise on its side with a bezel setting? Yuck!” But your ring is beautiful. It’s one of my faves on this site.
@Jacqui90: Is this a Tiffany ring? Looks like it. It’s very classic and beautiful.
@Black-Eyed-Susan: Is this vintage or antique?
