    I adore rose gold but it just doesn’t look right with my skin tone (especially on my hands for whatever reason), I still have tons of rose gold jewelry and wear necklaces/watches/etc whenever I want, but my engagement ring/wedding set is platinum.    I have extremely “cool” skin and the pink jewelry on my hands makes my hands look red (although rubies and yellow gold don’t as much, it must just be a “pink” thing).

    In my opininon, rose gold really only looks good on fairer skin tones. I always think of light red hair when I see rose gold, and light red hair doesn’t occur naturally usually on dark skin tones. I just think it looks beautiful on fair skin tones, though. Just my opinion! Just like I think yellow gold works best with dark skin tones. Not being racist, just being honest what I think looks best.

    I have a platinum engagment ring and wedding band but I also love rose gold and now I have a rose gold necklace and a 2 toned white and rose gold watch! I get tons of compliments on my rose gold jewellery and I have fair skin and red hair and people say it compliments my red hair! LOL

    My ring is white gold with rose gold on the inside, and I feel like it’s the best of both worlds!  Mixing is always an option if you decide to get yours custom made! πŸ™‚

    I prefer yellow gold and platinum as they are more classic metals. I’m not a fan of white gold due to the redipping, and I feel like rose gold is more of a ‘trend’ at the moment, well it is in Australia anyways. The patina can always be buffed out but yellow gold doesn’t need much maintenance at all.

    @lenabee:  Like a PP said, it has more to do with undertones than light or dark. A lot of redheads have warm undertones, which is why warm metals look good on them.

    Rose gold is my favorite! I have a peach champagne sapphire and the combination of the two is pure perfection. So soft and romantic and give a very vintage feel to the ring. LOVE!

    I was on the rose gold fence too so I just did a touch of rose gold with mostly white.

    hidingpearl:  I voted platinum BUT I am obsessed with rose gold. I think it’s beautiful. I have rose gold plated silver jewellery and I love it. I worry it won’t stand the test of time and still be in fashion in forty odd years, or at least I’d fall out of love with it. So for this reason and that platinum is super hard wearing I chose platinum for my ering and wedding ring. I’d maybe choose rose gold for a right hand ring, something I won’t be as upset about if it got damaged or wore away and needed maintenance.

    hidingpearl: Thank you so much! Yes it is a 1 carat peach champagne sapphire set in 14k rose gold! Love it! I prefer the lower carat rose gold as well…so soft πŸ™‚
