I wasn’t sure about going with all platinum or rose gold but my jeweler sold me on it. I’m so glad I did! You don’t have to worry about dipping it to get its color back like white gold. Mine is 18k and is a nice warm color, not bright pink at all.

I don’t have my rings yet but these are what I picked out for the e-ring (won’t be worn until after the wedding) and the band. I wanted the ring in rose and white but they couldn’t do it, so it’s white and yellow and the band is rose.

@Sweet.Sugar.Rose: I have been considering doing a morganite ering with rose gold. All the morganite rings I’ve seen though are huge and have major halos around them. While they are pretty, I want something a little less blingy for everyday wear but still beautiful and classy. Your ring is very pretty and not too over the top. Where did you get it? and what made you chose morganite?

Oooohh, how I love, love rose gold. Can’t even explain why. Just do. It does look especially smashing with morganite, a gem stone that is about to become quite rare.
When we upgrade my e ring someday, I’m really hoping for rose gold. Maybe with moissy–I like big rocks and bling.

Gorgeous rings ladies!!
Mine is 18k rose gold and like others have said, it is definitely not a pink colour – it looks more like a warm yellow. When people see my ring they usually assume it is yellow gold until they have a closer look at it. Rose gold is beautiful!
Picture of my e-ring by itself
Picture to show the colour
And picture of my e-ring in the middle of two 18k yellow gold rings (I was trying on bands, still on the hunt!) so you can see the colour difference
Hope they help you see the colour!

I love rose gold! It’s kind of weird how crazy I am about it, since a year ago I wouldn’t have imagined an engagement ring in anything but white gold or platinum. But once I saw morganite set in rose gold I was hooked!
That being said, I am a Latina with a darker complection, and whenever I wear my wedding band by itself, I sometimes feel like it is kind of blending with my skin tone…like it doesn’t pop. It might all be in my head, and it has been a recent observation. I’ll have to ask for feedback on that.
Anyway, I don’t have a pic of my wedding band on , but here is an old pic of the e-ring, and then our set.

I have a pale amethyst and rose gold engagement ring, and I just ordered a rose gold wedding band on Sunday. I love the vintage/antique feel of the ring, and I love the color against my skin!

My soon to be mine ring is rose gold. Here are a few things i’ve learned
1. Like PPs have said, it looks NOTHING like it photographs. I’ve often heard rose gold refered to as peach gold and that is often what color it looks like IRL.
2. The lower karat the gold, the greater the pink tones because there is a greater % of alloys in the metal to give it the rose color. My ring is 18k so it is very subtle peachy-rose glow. I’m not knocking 10k vs 14k vs 18k, just a preference for intensity of pink.
3. Different jewlers/manufactuers alloys will be different. I was amazed that even at the same karat of gold, RG can look quite different. If you have the chance I’d say see the gold on your hand because seeing one RG setting doesn’t give you a spot-on indication of every RG setting’s color.
