There is no metal I don’t like, but rose is my favorite, just because it’s a bit less expected IRL! gaia3465 :

Rose gold looks the best on my skin tone and I think looks the most romantic as well. I also love yellow gold. I’m not a fan of white gold.

I got so tired of re-dipping my white gold that I went with rose although I wasn’t too sure about it. Now I’m addicted to it and I love how the shades changes from pinkish to red and slightly orange at times. I find it much more durable .

I absolutely love my rose gold engagement ring! I never worried once about the trend – I just knew it fit my skin tone best.

I love rose gold and my wedding set is just that. I love all the colors of gold and have jewelery in each color. I do however prefer rose and yellow gold only because white gold is so much work. White gold gets a yellow tint after a while and always needs to be rhodium plated, therefore making it high maintenance.

My e ring is white gold. My wedding band will be rose gold. 

Personally, I love white gold with clear stones and rose gold with colored stones.

Rose gold for sure! I used to love white gold, but then after finding out that it needs to be re-dipped every so often, I didn’t enjoy the thought of that maintenance.

I vote rose gold. It just feels so romantic to me.

I think rose gold is beautiful and I was certain I’d want a rose gold set (especially since, like a PP, I wore silver for many years so I thought I wanted my wedding set to be something notably different.) But rose and yellow gold blend into my skin and we went with a light blue sapphire ering, which looks best in white gold.

I think the most important thing is that you pick a gold tone that looks really good with your skin and your center stone.

I have both white gold and rose gold and prefer the white gold.  I think it looks better with my skin tone (olive colouring) and goes more with my other jewelry.

I went with rose gold, but I think both are beautiful. It’s all about context (skin color, diamond/gemstone color etc). I think my champagne diamond looks really good with this rose gold band/bezel, but I could have went either way. Both go with just about everything.

Couldn’t post the second picture for some reason in my first post.
