Hi everyone! This is my first post on weddingbee. My fiance and I got engaged without an e-ring and I have just been wearing a CZ from a department store. I have decided I want to get a morganite ring rather than a diamond ring. I love the look and uniqueness of them, plus the price point is perfect for us right now.
Now I am trying to decide if I should order it in white gold or rose gold. I know the morganite is usually set in rose gold and looks beautiful, but I worry it will look dated in 10 years. We have already picked out wedding bands and I have a white gold wedding band. I am ok with mixing metals but would like everyone’s opinion (or pics if you have them!).
So the question is, should we order in white gold or rose gold!?

@lucyzta: 10 years ago my mom bought an antique rose gold ring. It was ALWAYS gorgeous on her skin tone. If rose gold looks good on you, go for that!
(I have a rose gold/ morganite RHR and I love it.)

I vote rose gold, but then again, I am completely biased 🙂

See now, I’m of the camp that rose gold and mixed metals (specifically rose gold and white gold mixed) are going to look VERY dated in about 10 years, since they’re such a huge trend right now. Plus, I feel like morganite blends in to rose gold, whereas white gold makes it pop and showcases it’s pretty color more.
But! My opinion doesn’t matter in the slightest :). What do YOU love?

I say don’t let society set for you what is dated… Yellow gold went out of style, but I never stopped wearing it, it looks good on my skin.. and I really love rose gold… So I say go for it…. if you are worried about someting looking dated then get a simple morganite solitaire, that is timeless and classic and you can update your bands however you see fit.

In 10 years you may want to change your setting anyway as tastes and styles change.
I personally think that morganite looks prettier in white gold because of the contrast.

@lucyzta: in ten years, all of our rings are going to look dated, so get what you love! I wanted rose gold but the 18k and 14k both looked terrible with my skin tone.

It is the design, not the materials, that looks dated. I actually prefer white on rose stones, but I am getting a rose gold matching band. I have a peach pad in white.

@lucyzta: Go with white. And post a poll.

I’m in the camp that believes rose and white metals mixed together is the most beautiful comibination EVER! 😉 I’m doing it and it makes me so happy 🙂 Don’t care if it goes out of style in 10 years…I’m so sure I’ll always love it!!
