Trends and popular styles change over the years. Rose gold has been very popular lately. It feels kind of cyclical sort of like fashion, it comes back in style. But it doesn’t matter! Whatever makes you happy does 🙂 I sold jewellery many many moons ago, about 20 some years now, and rose gold was popular then, actually tricolour cold (yellow, white and rose) items were very popular. I love that rose gold has done its own thing! It’s gorgeous and so feminine. Years ago I was gifted a yellow gold ring, and was disappointed it wasn’t white. I went and got it plated but that didn’t last. But it grew on me and I can’t believe I ever wanted it in white, and now I’ve gone gold for my wedding rings. Don’t stress this one 🙂

I don’t think yellow gold is dated at all! I personally prefer yellow gold it’s very classic and timeless. Just go with whatever you like

I think rose gold is gorgeous, and I don’t think yellow gold is dated! Mine is yellow gold and I absolutely LOVE it, classic and timeless. I personally didn’t pick rose gold as I felt gold would go with more, but those pics you posted are stunning, any would be a great choice!

I don’t believe it will continue to be a fashion trend but that said just because something looks dated doesn’t mean it looks bad. Who knows, platinum and white gold might be dated then too. Everything has the possibility of becoming dated so get what you love and go with the flow from there. If in 10 years time you feel it looks too dated, then get a modern eternity band, as a PP suggested.

Yes. And so will silver/platinum everything. If that makes you feel any better.

I posted about this same dilemma! What I learned from all the helpful bees is that ALL rings will look dated at some point. Whether it’s yellow gold, has a halo, princess cut, etc it is going to look dated eventually, but that’s ok! White gold is the norm right now but in 10 years it could be what looks “old”. Styles come and go, but as long as you love it it won’t matter 🙂

I chose a rose gold halo engagement ring. I’m pretty sure the halo will be “dated” sooner than the rose gold, just because halos are so so popular. But, I’m not worried either way. I think the only way to avoid any possibility of looking dated, is if you go with an extremely simple, classic solitaire. Also, (yellow) gold is back in style now!

I have a rose gold ring that belonged to my great grandmother. The style went out of fashion but guess what it’s back in! It’s rose gold with bezel set diamonds. If the diamonds weren’t oec you’d never guess the ring was so old. She was bought it before my grandfather was born and he’d have been in his 80s by now. Everything goes out of fashion but then it always come back again.

Epicpooka : THIS IS MY DREAM RING!!! OMG, it’s so beautiful.
Personally I love rose gold. It’s beautiful, and so feminine. Rose gold was huge in the 1920s then fell out of fashion. In 2000 I bought a rose gold wedding band, so although it wasn’t as popular as today, it was still around.
If you like it, I say go ahead and buy it! No matter what your wedding is going to be dated to a particular year (hair styles, dress style, shoe style, etc). I certainly don’t see rose gold as being a big trend for only the 2016-2017 season. It’ll be around for a long time to come!
