I don’t think it’s old fashioned. I think it was just very popular for a long time and now the silver metals are more popular. But I do like it. Even though my new ring is white gold, my ring from my previous marriage is yellow gold:

I absolutly LOVE yellow gold, but EVERYONE else hates it 🙁 including my fiance, so I’ve switched over to platinum, but I still LOVE LOVE LOVE yellow gold.

This is a style thing– the various metals come and go over time as general fashion trends.  Currently we’re in the middle of a white gold trend.  Give it time– people will get tired of all white gold rings looking alike and more and more will start buying yellow gold.  

Buy what you like best; that’s the only opinion that matters.

Yellow gold will be back in style. I predict fairly soon. If you like it, wear it!

i love my yellow gold.  I don’t think its old fashioned, but its not the most popular metal at the moment.  I find it classic.

It’s a metal, I don’t think they are ever out of style.

Yellow gold is already coming back among the avant garde designers (the ones that use rough diamonds and things like that), as well as some of the really high-end designers. She might just think that because you can’t waltz into Helzburg and get anything in yellow gold that looks like it wasn’t designed for someone at least 50. But it will trickle down within the next two years, I predict, aided especially by the resurgence in rose gold.

I believe it is out of style at the moment…but so were bell bottoms and they came back…white and yellow and pink gold have been around forever and times will change again and again. Depends on which is in the ‘fashion moment’

Lol, its GOLD for pete’s sake… trust me it may be of another colour, but it isn’t going to lose any of its appeal (value) overall.

White Gold is huge right now… but colour really is a personal preference.  Rose Gold is on the rise, and Yellow Gold is diminished in regards to “fashionability”… but as I said its all gold.  So it ain’t costume jewellery and that is all that truly matters.

Hope this helps,

I think yellow gold and rose gold look much nicer on golden skin tones (those with yellow undertones). I also think yellow gold will be back fairly soon.

I agree. I think yellow gold was popular back in the day. White gold and platinum seem to be the trend right now. Doesn’t mean that it isn’t pretty though! Get whatever you love. Trends come and go all the time.
