I love going back and reading this thread 🙂 I still absolutely love rose gold! My bf wasn’t sold on it initially, well he pretty much shut it down, but I tried on a $10 rose gold colored ring the other day and showed him and he was surprised how much it suited me! I love it! I think I would be leaning towards the 18kt hues, but I haven’t seen any rose gold jewellery in person yet.
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! 🙂
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.
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.
peachsapphiregirl: your rings are BEAUTIFUL! I have a very soft spot for EidelPrecious rings. I particularly love that the sapphire has a little bezel around before the halo starts. Just that extra little touch of rose gold 🙂 Are your rings 14kt? I prefer the 14kt or lower rose gold than 18kt. I keep scrolling up to your pictures while I type this and I smile every time I see your hand shot. They are so perfect on you! Congratulations.
Mrs.D: Is that an oval?! I looooove ovals and desperately want one for my ering. It looks very pretty, I love the rose gold 🙂
MrsSpagan: thanks for your advice! I’m not worried about rose gold standing the test of time. I know I love love love it, and it will remind me of this period of my life. A rose gold RHR for you is a great idea! I hope you do it 🙂
