I only wear white metals, the more valuable pieces are in platinum, otherwise white gold in 14K or 18K, with the odd 10K.

I don't like white gold* and it doesn't look great with my skin tone. I own almost all yellow gold with a bit of rose gold thrown in.

(* I would be interested in seeing unplated white gold in person as I do like it in pictures)

Thinking of my jewelry collection, I would estimate it is 1/3 Platinum, 1/3 Gold (running the gamut from 9kt - 22kt, yellow / white / rose), and 1/3 Silver (sterling and argentium).

It used to be all white gold, now I have some in rose gold. Very few in yellow, mainly antique ones. Yellow does not flatter my skin tone.

Primarily white gold, followed closely by yellow gold. I do have some rose gold pieces, but RG is a difficult color for me - I love how soft and pretty it looks but it tends to blend into my skin and doesn’t provide enough of a visual contrast! So I only own a couple pieces and I don’t see myself buying others.

Most of mine is 14k yellow, and I've recently acquired some rose gold. I do have some white metals, but they don't look the best on my skin - the warm metals look much better. Some of my favorite rings are in white gold, though, so I still wear them, usually paired with another ring in yellow or rose.

Mostly white gold and platinum and some silver. I have recently been wearing yellow again and have a few rose gold pieces which look better now that my hair is natural silver/grey than when it was brown. I will likely be adding in a little more rose gold.

I voted yellow gold, but a lot of my jewelry is high karat gold. Some of my jewelry is 14K yellow gold; some is platinum. I have some Elsa Peretti mesh sterling silver and also some Georg Jensen sterling I inherited from mother. But I buy mainly 18K gold; and 21K, 22K and 24K gold jewelry. I used to hate the look of it when I was younger. I thought it looked brassy and cheap. In recent years I have grown to love it and have many nice pieces designed by people with middle eastern backgrounds like Gurhan and Yossi Harari.

I dont have any pieces in white gold.
I have only two in platinum.
Half is rose gold & half yellow.

Im extremely fair (pale skin) but I have a very yellow undertone to my pale skin so warm metals sing on me!

Most of my stuff is rose gold, but my studs, tennis bracelet and shared prong eternity are all white gold, as I'm not crazy about coloured metal claws/prongs with diamonds.

I have about equal parts yellow and white gold, and a lot of silver I don't wear anymore. My only platinum are my ER/WB set. I want some rose gold but I don't really need anything. Not that that's ever stopped me.... :???:

Most of my rings are platinum. I have some white and yellow gold. I prefer platinum over white gold generally. I have some antique rose toned gold, but no true rose gold as most think of it.

I don't mind earrings in white gold for weight though.

My 3 most expensive rings are in platinum, my bezel studs and slider pendant, also in plat, various diamond bands in w/g, diamond bracelet and diamond heart is 18K w/g, tanzanites in 18K yellow gold, and various other pieces in y/g, although these days I wear mainly white metals.

Forgot about my Colombian emerald, also in 18K w/g and my rainbow sapphires in 14k w/g
