(Closed) Will rose gold go the way of Black Hill's gold???

  • poll: Do you anticipate rose gold becoming dated and passe'?

    No, it is timeless and romantic--go for it!

    Give it a few years and you will hate it--go platinum!

    Mix the two together.

    Ive had rose gold jewellery since I was a child, and Ive always loved it, even when it wasnt hugely popular. It may come in and out of popularity but its always beautiful. And, it misses so well with other tones.

    RayKay:  Why thank you!  Yeah, it’s been up for at least a week, but doesn’t seem like anyone is interested.  It’s beautiful, but I don’t wear it enough and that’s not fair to the ring.  It’s vintage and beautiful and deserves to be worn all the time.  If it matched my e-ring better I would use it myself as my wedding ring, but oh well!  By the way, I am still just in awe of your new ring; it is so so so beautiful.

    When my grandmother got married (in the 1940s) rose gold was popular, so her set is rose gold. She seemed pleased (and surprised) when I recently told her her rings were very on trend. These things are so cyclical that there is absolutel no ring that will not show its vintage.

    secondtimecharm:  Rose gold has been around forever. I don’t think it’s fair to call any of the golds trendy. If you love it, go for it!

    I love Blackhills gold. I don’t think it’s outdated at all. It just isn’t for everyone.

    CinqueTerre:  DB is so hit or miss sometimes when it comes to selling. Kind of all about timing. I just sold a few things but I priced them to sell, or even took an lower offer, less than I had paid even just a couple weeks earlier! I also did a couple of trades instead. Someone might bite after some more time.

    And thank you 🙂

    secondtimecharm:  Roae gold nwas quite popular in England in Victorian and Edwardian times, so while it will date a bit (and then probably return to popularity after x years), I don’t think it’s comparable to Black Hills Gold. It’s more like the current fashion for very thin bands (I include mine at 2mm) tastes will swing in the other direction again but it’s a look that has been popular in many eras, so it won’t ever be seen as a one-off craze. 

    We like to think our tastes aren’t influenced by fashion but it’s amazing how much they are. I can hardly believe that I once thought that almost orange pine furniture; paint effects and stencilling on walls; and a preponderance of peach were the best thing ever to happen to interiors! In the early to mid eighties,when I was growing up we all thought is was lovely, accessorised by vast bowls of pot pourri that stank after a few weeks and gathered dust. Imagine if we were all condemned to wear our first ever pair of spectacles for the rest of our lives. I’d look like this but older, right down to the auburn perm (thanks Harmony semi-permanent):

    I wish I still had the black hills gold leaf earrings I had when I was 12!

    Everything goes out of fashion; everything comes back into fashion. It’s the fashion circle of life. That’s why you should always go with what you genuinely like, instead of trying to follow the trends or worrying about things going out of style.
