    The brushed rose gold will definitely make the gemstones pop. I think it’ll look beautiful!

    I mix platinum/silver and rose gold daily and I love it!! I actually have a Elsa Peretti style ring with the one tiny stone on the platinum band so I can tell you how the stone looks on the band which is… Super plain. NO ONE can tell it’s not a plain metal band. can tell and I love the whiteness difference between the stone and the metal and I think it’s really nice, but it definitely blends in a lot.

    The rose gold will make the stones pop and it will definitely be more obvious that it’s not just a plain band. If this is important to you, I would go with the gold, and not at all worry about not matching with other jewelry because I think they look great together.

    My SO has a titanium ring that has a both a polished and a brushed section and the brushed section scratched way easier than the polished (at least it was a lot more obvious. every ring will scratch of course but it’s not so obvious on polished surfaces) and after regular use of about a year, the brush looks kind of faded. I have no idea how it would hold up in gold though, but something to think about.

    Agree with PPs – rose gold will blend nicely with your ordinary silver tone pieces and I like the traditional “brushed” version! Post when you get it!

    My mom has a thick Etoile yellow gold band and it looks lovely. The diamonds just pop and sparkle, I love it. So I voted for the shiny rose gold one since that’s the closest to hers.

    I tried on a similar band at a big box store in the brushed rose gold and it was absolutely stunning!

    valintine:  Well it was about a year ago but I think it was Helzberg – they seem to have more choices in rose gold

    valintine:  Rose gold I think it looks beautiful!  I’m the same way as you though I wear a lot of silvertoned pieces.  So rose gold would stand out.

    Love the rose gold matte look. It will make the diamonds stand out as well. Very nice ring. The siver/silver look just doesn’t appeal to me.

    valintine:  I don’t unfortunately, but I’ll try to remember to take some when I visit her next!

    valintine:  I love this band. I think it is so, so pretty. I think the rose gold will be beautiful, particularly in a brushed finish. With a white metal, I would vote for a shiny finish. For some reason, I feel like the stones disappear into the ring too much with brushed white metal. But brushed rose gold makes them pop out even more.
