    @hidingpearl:  You should try to look at some older, or antique, rings in the materials you are worried about.  You might like the patina; it adds character to the metal.  We got a set of antique silver flatware as an engagement gift from my parents, and I love the look the patina gives it.

    At any rate, I didn’t vote, because it doesn’t matter what I like, since it’s not my ring.

    Rose gold for me.

    I’m super fair skinned so I think it’s the metal that compliments me the best.  Also my stone isn’t a diamond so I think the peach sapphire with rose gold looks great.  I don’t like the look of a stark white diamond and rose gold.  I like both the metal and the stone to look warm together.  Rose gold is popular  right now but I think it’s the natural cycle of things.  White gold had its hay day and yellow gold is coming up from the 70s, 80s and 90s.

     

    No matter what color you get, in time it will look “dated” but just keep it and after another 30 years it will be back in style again.

    It’s also fair to mention rose gold looks different between different K contents

    18K rose gold looks almost peachy – it looks pretty similar to yellow gold.  I have 18k and people usually assume it’s yellow but some people are like “is that yellow or rose, i can’t tell.”

    14K rose gold has a lot more rose or pink to it. If you’re going for true rose gold it’s best to get it in 14k.

    @MissSweetiepie:  I think rose gold looks best on the fair skinned girls.

    I would love a rose gold RHR!  My wedding set is white gold, although part of me does regret a little bit not mixing some rose gold into it.  But I’ve had my eye on a few rose gold anniversary bands (because ya know, I only have 8 months until my anniversary, gotta start looking now, lol!)

    @hidingpearl:  I cannot talk you out of rose gold cause I’m having trouble talking myself out of rose gold… I flip flop. Some days it just reminds of Black Hills gold, you know that jewelry that has yellow, green and rose gold, a lot of leaves, anyway yeah. But then I think rose gold is freaking cool. Then I think people won’t know what it is and think my ring is not real gold. But then I think rose gold is so pretty. I’m in a war with myself so I am of no help to you! lol!

    I love rose gold (although my personal set is white gold). If you love it, go for it. Just be prepared for the fact it is going to look dated. You know how today we look at marquise shaped stones and think 80s? Rose gold and someother recent trends are going to be the same way. Does that make it less beautiful? No! Go with what you love and don’t look back!

    @FleeSircus:  I think it contrasts too much against fair skin. It’s a warm metal so I think it looks better on warm skin. Just like blue eyeshadow looks better on cool skin and brown shadow looks better on warm skin.

    @MissSweetiepie:  Looks great on me! Laughing  Because if it doesn’t then that means no metal suits me.  I’m super cool toned.  White and yellow gold aren’t my cup.

    I wear 18K rose gold so that’s much more peachy and not so pink.

    I love rose gold for other jewelry but not a wedding set. I think nothing comes close to platinum as it’s amazing quality, very strong, does not need dipping, and there are no skin issues. My entire family has always gone with platinum and I have never noticed a patina or dull dark grey tinge. keep rose gold for fun jewelry. Plus I at least want to match band material with my SO and he would never wear rose gold, perhaps your situation is different though.

    @hidingpearl:  rose gold has been around as long as white and gold.. I think it is classic while still being special! I don’t think it will be dated like someone else said. It’s also really subtle in 10k and 14k, especially if you’re getting a solitaire some people might not even notice! I planned on white gold but ended up choosing rose and I think it’s so pretty.

    I really love rose gold but believe it will date the ring similar to yellow marquis from the 80’s (which I actually still think looks pretty).

    Hi! I have a rose gold engagement ring and I love it on my olive skin tone. I have always dreamed of a rose gold ring and I think it is very classic. I definitely do not regret the rose gold. I felt the platinum was to “bright” for my olive skin.
