It doesn’t really matter if anyone thinks it’s ‘dated’ looking except you. And in ten years, if you do think it looks out of place, then you can get an anniversary ring. 

Plus, who knows what trends will do in ten years. By then it’ll be 2026 and we could all be wearing rings made of some newly created material crafted from ocean plastic pollution (a girl can dream). My point is, get what you like regardless of what anyone else thinks.

I do not think so. i have some rose gold rings from the mid 1800s. it is not a new thing by any means. It is just cycled back into popularity. Styles come and go then come again.  ๐Ÿ™‚  Get what you love!

I’m 21 and last week my (now) Fiance proposed with a yellow gold ring. Do I think it looks dated? Hell no! It’s timeless. With rose gold, recently it has become fashionable. But when it goes out of fashion, it’ll come back in again. If you want rose gold, you have rose gold.

Yes- but so will halos, etc.  Styles are cyclical.  Get what you want and love

I have a yellow gold engagement ring and I don’t think it looks dated at all. Personally, I like yellow gold looks more timeless than rose or white but that’s just me. All of the golds (yellow, white, and rose) go in and out of style. White gold is popular now but it could very well not be in 10 years and maybe yellow or rose gold will be more popular.

Just pick what you like.

I think the style of a ring can end up looking more dated than the metal used to make it.

However, with that said, if you love your ring, what does it matter if it might look “dated” one day?

 

I’ll look dated one day too, but I still love myself ๐Ÿ˜‰

There is no such as timeless to be perfectly honest. If I were to wear my grandma’s engagement ring it would look dated but on her it looks like a ring that she’s worn for 57 years. A ring that suited her style when she got engaged and suits her now. Pick something that you love and it will age with you rather than trying to pick something that is timeless or not picking something because if a trend.

I personally think that rose gold will likely look dated eventually. But like yellow gold, it’ll cycle back into popularity again someday.

To me, white gold seems a little more timeless, partly because platinum and silver are also timeless, so white metals are never totally out of fashion.

But you have to choose what you like best with your skin tone, and what will make you happiest long-term!

Edited to add: I totally agree with PP who said that the style of ring is much more likely to seem “dated” than the metal. And that if you choose something you love, it’ll age with you.

If you love it, go for it! They have such a pretty glow, all three of those rings and if rose gold looks great with your skin tone then have it!

Don’t go for what fashion says should suit you, go for what actually suits you!

Agreed it’s all cyclical. I actually don’t think yellow gold is dated–I think colored gold in general is on the upswing right now. Plus, I think the actual style of the ring is likely to date it more than the color of the gold.

But I’m biased–I have a rose gold ring and I love it!

Even if it does – it will be a sign of the times! And hopefully remind you of your time being engaged ๐Ÿ™‚

I think rose gold, halos and probably even some coloured stones are going to look very much of this time. But I also don’t think that matters. Fashion is cyclical.

I guess you imagine you will be married for several decades in which case many trends will come and go and come back again. Don’t worry about trends, whatever you pick that ring will be so special to you the last thing you’ll worry about in 10/20/30/40+ years is whether the ring is out of fashion.
