I personally love rose gold the best out of all the golds and platinum a close second. You could always try out pallidum or platinum or titanium or stainless steel. Hope you figure out what works for you! Good luck bee! ๐Ÿ˜Š

raccoona:  I have, in the past, had a reaction to certain karat weights of yellow gold. Specifically, 10K would almost always end up causing a very painful and bumpy rash. Years ago, a jeweler told me I was having a reaction to whatever metals were used in the gold’s alloy. He recommended I go at least 18K and above for all of my gold jewelry. My ERing was 18K and my wedding band was also 18K, and I never really had a problem with either of those.

Over the past year, I have also tried 14K (both in yellow and rose gold) with no problems. So that karat weight seems like it’s also OK for me. Is it possible for you to try remaking your WG rings in a higher weight white gold? Maybe you could go 14 or 18K with them? It might just be the 10K weight that gives you a problem. I don’t know if it would help in your specific situation or not, but it might be worth exploring as a possible option.

In the meantime, here’s my original ERing. It’s set in 18K yellow gold, and the band is 14K yellow gold.

Here’s another picture of a little stack I sometimes wear with my ERing. ERing is 18K YG, scroll band is 14K YG, and the half eternity is set in 14K WG.

I also have this 5-stone band, which is set in 18K YG (platinum prongs), and I sometimes pair it with a 14K YG band.

I will always post my precious! But I’m not sure if the color difference, maybe try 14 or 18 or even platinum.  Could you be allergic to gold? If not rose gold it up! Sorry in advance the pics are so big
