I have a palladium ring – I’ve only had it a month or so but so far I love it! It’s very shiny, was much cheaper than platinum but with the same strength, naturally white and  hypoallergenic.

Having said that, I think you should go with what you LOVE, regardless of trends. If you love rose gold then get it! Either metal will be beautiful 🙂

ETA: I’ve also heard you can get white gold mixed with a palladium alloy rather than nickel, if this helps.

I been through similar process. I adore halo and rose gold but I ended up choosing a more conservative choice.  A solatire w/ pave setting in 18K white gold.  I’m not planningn to upgrade my set and I seen one of my aunt bridal set.. hers is round solatire with channel setting; while her wedding band look a little dated but her e-ring still look timeless…and that help finalize my decision. 

 

however, if you don’t mind changing the setting in the future and you absolutely love rose gold, why not? You can always change it to something else.

I have a 14k rose gold Engagement Ring and you honestly can’t tell in most lights. It’s not that pink!

Also, this..

 

“Historically, rose gold first became fashionable in Russia during the 19th century, where it was referred to as “Russian gold” since they were among the only wearers of the uncommon alloy at the time. The inevitable spread of rose gold in jewelry can most notably be seen during the Victorian era where the pink-hued precious metal, along with its yellow cousin, dominated.”

Get what makes you happy. And if you are like a lot of people this is going to be THE ring you will wear forever so you should only worry about getting what makes your heart sing and suits your lifestyle best.

PrettyinPink45:  I think rose gold is the most romantic and timeless of them all fwiw.  Have you seen the yellow gold on the outside and rose gold on the inside? just amazing.  Good luck finding the new baby!

Trends come and go. Yes, halos and rose gold rings are back trendy right now. Halos became popular during the late Victorian and Georgian eras and then again in the 1920’s. So, if you “adore” halos and rose gold rings, then get what you want and whichever style of ring that you will love forever.
