I am bumping this. I just posted a picture of a pink morganite ring in rose gold, that I was eyeing, yesterday. Since then, it had occured to me that it might look funky with my olive skin tone.

I’d love to see some pictures if anyone has any, also.

@Felina:  I found these threads that mention olive skin coupled with rose gold and skin tones coupled with various metals, in general:



Hope that helps!

I think what I’ll be doing is going to a local shop to try on rose gold to see how it looks with my skin tone.

I have olive skin and gold of any kind looks terrible on me. I wish I had a photo for you but I don’t own any rose gold. The next time I walk by some I’ll snap a picture!

I thought gold looked best on people w. olive/warm skin tones.

I’m fair/cool undertones and I look best in silver/white gold etc.

I don’t know if this will help you at all, but I’m have very pale warm olive skin, and the rose gold that I’ve tried on a whim (probably only 10k-filled in the accessories department at Carson’s) looked awful. It was really orangey and it just looked bad.

That being said, I think it might look better on your darker skin. I’d try on a bunch of different alloys because rose golds definitely are not created equal.

I have olive skin and rose gold looks terrible on me.  I think it has something to do with the fact that I have yellow undertones to my skin while rose gold has pink tones to it.  It clashes in a bad way.  I don’t wear the color pink for the same reason!  My ring is yellow gold and it is the best color for my skin.

My dh is olive skinned and 14k rose gold looks amazing on him!!  He put my ring on his pinky once and I was totally jealous of how perfect it was on his skin.

I have olive skin and my e ring is white gold. The ring I got for my 30th is gold. And I wear rose gold earrings and one of my two weddings bands will be rose gold. I was going to get my e ring in rose gold but I wanted it to be more classic with the ability to change it up.

I tan easily and in the winter have somewhat pale skin. My undertones are blue (look at your veins) and I have sensitive skin that becomes pink very easily. All of these metals look great on me.

I have a theory…if you really, really love something it just works. I’m not sure how, but it does. All the times things don’t “flow” and I’m worried about something not looking right, it just wasn’t “me”. This is my own personal guide and it may or may not work for you, but I wanted to share.

I think the combination in question will look lovely BUT I’m not certain the morganite will pop like an ice colored stone would in rose gold. However, I personally like things like that and think things like that look gorgeous.

(If you look at my profile, you will find I posted pics of my e-ring. You can see my winter skin tone there.)


Best of luck!!

I have pale, fair skin and rose gold really blends in. It almost disappears on me but looks elegant nonetherless. My favorite is still white.

I don’t have a picture yet with rose gold but I do own some bands and pendants. I’m really attracted to 10k rose gold, which has more copper and is more rose than yellow.

Go with what you love. It will look great regardless. And maybe choose a metal you wear most day to day.
