    I voted Yellow Gold with Diamond Band. I love white and yellow gold but there is something so striking about that combination, it looks amazing.

    I was always a huge fan of yellow gold until I Fiance proposed with a white gold e-ring and now I’m biased towards white 😉 I don’t think you can go wrong either way they’re both gorgeous!

    I had a white gold ring at first but after trying on a yellow gold ring I was hooked! I love the traditional look of it and I love that my mom and I have the same type of metal for our rings. I also think the yellow gold looks the best with my skin tone. Go to a store and try on both metal types to see which one suits you more!

    sesame :  yellow gold is my personal favorite, especially on paler skintones. I feel like white gold sometimes washes out the skincolor on pale skin. 

    I chose yellow gold for my ring and I love it and have gotten so many compliments. Most of my friends who only wear white gold normally, also chose yellow gold for their engagement and wedding rings.

    I know platinum and white gold are big trends in the states, but in most other countries yellow gold is definitely NOT dated! To me it will always be classic and your choice should be based solely on you like better on your hand and not on what’s trendy.

    I’m over white gold. I used to love it, but now I lean towards rose and yellow gold. I just think they flatter the skin better.

    I have always loved yellow gold. As a PP stated, gold IS yellow. For white metals, I prefer a metal that is naturally white, and I buy platinum. However, if what is popular or trendy concerns you, you ought to know that people have been claiming that yellow gold is on the verge of becoming popular again for 20 years. That it will be back in a big way any day now. But it isn’t. After its boom in the late 80s and early 90s, it has not been popular for wedding jewelry in the US. Few jewelers have much in stock, and it often has to be special ordered.

    That said, yellow gold is timeless and always classic, IMO. The true colour of gold will never be out of style, but white metals have been and remain more popular for wedding jewelry. I special ordered a setting from Blue Nile in 18K YG, and I adore it. It would be extraordinarily rude for anyone to criticize an engagement ring for any reason (although unfortunately it does happen), and no one has every made anything but positive comments about mine.

    Wg looks just like silver to me and the up keep sucks. Plus most US wg is mixed with cheap nickel…which I’m allergic too. I chose yg because it’s real gold color and it’s classic:

    I really love how classic yellow gold is, especially in a solitaire.
