    For jewelry where the main feature is colorless gem(s), white gold keeps the focus on the gems better.

    For all-metal jewelry or warm-toned gems, I prefer yellow gold.

    So, I always thought I wanted yellow or rose gold. I love the trends I have a warmer skin tone so I always thought those would compliment my hand better. But when my fiancée pulled out that white gold ring, my heart stopped! I love the yellow and rose, but white is so timeless and it will never go out of style. Looks great on every skin tone! Go with what you love though!

    Ah, I’m one of those girls who have partial undivided love to yellow gold despite cool skin tone, just because at the end of the day diamond on yellow gold reminds me of the exact sparkle of water droplets sparkling from a small stream running in a forest opening in a late summer afternoon. Yellow gold is the colour of the sunlight in summer.

    I’d say go with any that you love more, that always reminds you of the beautiful things in life, and if I were you I won’t even notice what would be “in” and “out” of trend soon.

    I have always loved yellow gold.  I wouldn’t worry about it looking dated, it’s absolutely timeless, just like white gold!

    michellelynn9175 :  You know I’m all for the yellow gold now! I love it since I got my rose ring. I say go for yellow gold! If you decide in a few years you’re tired of yellow you can either get it plated or just get a new setting, because you’ll already have the diamonds. I can’t wait to see what you choose.

    michellelynn9175 :  In this exact ring with those chunky diamonds I say warm metal even though in a lot of rings I like white. Gorgeous! Or, get rose like me :p

    michellelynn9175 :  The yellow gold would look amazing on you! It would also highlight the beauty of the setting, not just the stones! 🙂

    depends on the diamond color to me. White (DEF, and even G) look best in white gold, warmer colors look better on yellow gold.

    michellelynn9175 :  Those golds are all so pretty! And I love that rose band. That’s another ring on my dream list. I’d love to get one and stack it with a thin diamond eternity band and thin ruby eternity!!
