    IMO, trends change all the time. Yellow was “out” 5 years ago, and couples are bringing it “back”. Rose is fashionable now, and it also was in the victorian age. Go with the one you like more.

    Agreed with PP, and adding: I think the rose gold looks better with your skin tone and the pave halo. 😊

    sweetpea04 :  I think our choices will always look somewhat dated.  Everyone my parents’ age has yellow gold, friends who got married before me have white gold, and I have rose (many of my friends have rose, others have platinum).  I think that you should just get what you love now!  I personally think the rose gold suits your skintone better, but I also am a huge rose gold fan.  If you’re into mixed metals, you could always get a yellow gold wedding band!

    I’d do the yellow if I were you since that’s what you love. I love both rose and yellow gold. I have a rose gold wedding set but my dream upgrade will be yellow gold.

    I am biased toward rose gold, but I really do think the ring is so lovely in rose gold!

    Trends change all the time, to with what you love! 🙂 I have a rose gold e-ring and love it. I’m not worried about it looking dated — like others have said, everything will look a little dated eventually!

    They both look great on you, so it’s really what you prefer! Don’t worry about being dated, just go with what you like!

    Do what you love! I personally love the yellow on you but the rose gold looks great with your skin tone too.

    I was set on white gold, till I tried on the yellow gold and it just looked so much better with my skin tone. I definitely don’t regret it, I love it. My husband was set on yellow gold, he tried on a brusher rose gold ring that looks so good with his skin tone (its a coppery rose gold, not a pink one), so thats what he got and we definitely don’t regret it. Trends come and go, get what you love

     Love the yellow on you. I’m partial to yellow gold though. My original set was yellow (was married in the late 90’s) and when I upgraded I changed to white and eventually regretted it. So I changed the wedding band back to yellow and kept the white gold engagement ring. Best of both worlds. Get what you fall in love with.

    I love both yellow and rose gold, and both look much better on me than white metals, so the overwhelming majority of my rings are one or the other. My original wedding set is 14k yellow, which was NOT what most people were getting 12 years ago, and I don’t regret it one single bit. ALL of the different metal colors have traded places as being the most “trending” one many times over the years, and will continue to. As other posters have mentioned, as time goes by, all of our wedding sets will appear a bit “dated” compared to what is currently trending, and that is utterly unavoidable. What matters is that it is beautiful to you, flatters your hand, and fits your lifestyle – none of the rest matters. If that is the rose gold, don’t worry that you don’t have any other rose gold jewelry. Rose gold coordinates exquisitely with white metals, and at the same time is close enough to yellow gold due to the warmth in both that if your wedding set is in rose and you’re wearing yellow necklace, earrings, etc., it will not be noticeable to others that there is a difference – it will just look like you’re wearing warm metal jewelry that day.

    Now, all of that said, based on your pictures, I personally prefer that particular setting in the rose gold, and think that it really does flatter your skin. Just my opinion, though!

    Oh, and if it was me, I would get it exactly like the picture – with all the prong work in the rose gold. I think it sets off each individual stone beautifully that way, so that it is easier to see the details of the design. (I don’t like the way colorless or near-colorless diamonds set in halos with white metal all just sort of disappear into a big white mishmash.) I think that may be one of the reasons I like the rose gold better than the yellow here – the slightly darker rose contrasts the stones better than the slightly lighter yellow, so the yellow has a touch more of the “mishmashy” look.

    I think the rose gold looks better with your skin tone.
