I have some yellow gold rings that I love, but my heart was set on platinum for the engagement ring. I do really like the look of a yellow gold solitaire, though. It’s nice and timeless. One of my stacked RHRs is a simple yellow gold band. I used to wear it as a wedding band while I traveled before we were engaged. I adore it.

Traditional, heirloom, and classic! I love yellow gold. I kinda want a yellow gold solitaire now.

It says “i have pale skin and white gold washes me out while yellow gold warms up my skin tone’. Also I just think its beautiful, and I prefer things to be what they are. my fiancé is getting a a white gold ring because he has richer pigment. I just feel prettier in yellow flood, and all my jewelry is yellow gold!

I have a white gold engagement ring and a yellow gold wedding band. I don’t intend to wear my rings as a set. My hands are tiny and two rings just look overwhelming.

My white gold engagement ring has my big sparkly diamond. It’s my showpieces. The gold wedding band is meant to be practical. I’ll wear it when I hike or wash the dishes or whatnot. I won’t have to worry about it yellowing and it’s a classic style and shape. I considered getting a white gold wedding band, but it somehow seemed too instubstantial without an engagement ring beside it… and like I said, I don’t want to wear the two together.

@mjoyelle:  My thoughts exactly! (about the skin tone and beauty!

 

Plus, who wants to have to give up their ring to have it re-dipped once a year!? Not me!! 

Also, a small part of me feels like white gold just looks like silver.

I see it on some bees and think it looks good. I see it on me and it doesn’t. I have no other gold jewelry so I knew I wanted white gold. I do love rose gold thou…..but that doesn’t look good on me either. So I guess my answer is….. I like it others but not for me personally!

I like that yellow gold is a little “different” now, and I happened to find a one-of-a-kind engagement ring that is yellow gold, so that’s what I went with. It’s very, very modern, so yellow gold doesn’t have to be “traditional”. My e-ring is a raw cubed diamond. Wedding band is an octagon with DH’s fingerprint inside. DH’s ring is palladium with my fingerprint on the outside:

This is a really interesting question, great thread idea!

For me, when I see older women with yellow gold, I think “old fashioned”, but when I see younger girls sporting yellow gold in a modern setting, I think “fashion forward”, haha! 

I received lots of yellow gold when I was in my teens, but now I prefer white platinum. I don’t find it looks like silver, or aluminum…I find it crisp beautiful 🙂 Having said that, I have slowly but surely fallen in love with rose gold!!!!!!! I got myself a diamond band in rose gold, all prongs rose, and I’m so happy when I glimpse at it on my hand. It’s warm and soft. 

Since my wedding set is platinum, and soldered together, I have rose gold bands, metal and diamonds, to stack together when I want something simpler. 

These are my rose gold bands. I only currently own one pendant in yellow gold, from my husband 🙂

I just feel white gold makes the diamond stand out more and really pop.

I prefer yellow gold for everything BUT my wedding set! I also really love the look of mismatched golds in all of my jewelry. I think diamonds just look better in white gold though.

@Cappugcino:  +1 Definitely concur with this statement

My engagement rings either have a sapphire or an emerald centre stone and the yellow gold settings just compliment so well. Additionally, my most prized and sentimental jewellery (barring my grandmother’s necklace) are all in yellow gold so I definitely feel more sentimental towards it than any more metals.

@joya_aspera:  My wedding band is yellow gold. I chose it because it’s so uber traditional that it will never ever be mistaken for anything but a wedding band. It’s the only piece of gold jewely I own.

I also think I felt a bit hesitant about silver bands because they can be so many different metals…silver, white gold, platinum. I wanted it to be clear that my ring was gold. Also, and as a side note, I am not at all a traditional person (my engagement ring was pearl) but even though gold is old traditional, it’s very rare to see gold bands nowadays and I liked that too.
