Tanned Asian Here! I’m filipino so I have a naturally olive skinned Complexion.
I happen to love love love rose gold.
I’m at work right now but I have my rose gold bracelets on so I took pictures below.
I will say that white metals really stand out against my skin tone better and are more noticeable in pictures, so they probably look better on me, but I still love rose gold more.

Oh this is a good thread, @jaysonsmom! I just adore the look of rose gold jewelry BUT each and every time I try a piece on, it seems to totally disappear on my medium, easily tanned Taiwanese skin (collective horrified gasp from my much fairer, sun-avoidant ancestors). I think I'm darker than you but I am also a winter color person and jewel toned colors look best on me. I can also wear white and clear, cool pastels. Dusty pastels, most yellows, camel and browns look terrible on me. I find that icy white diamonds and icy white metal are far and away the most attractive on me, really "popping" against my skin color. I sometimes do wear 18kt yellow gold, but it does bring out the warm yellower tones in my skin. Sadly, rose gold just looks faded and muted (sometimes even muddy) on me. So, just like I banished camel and brown from my wardrobe 20 years ago, I've decided rose gold is not for me. Good luck and I hope you can wear it!

Hi @jaysonsmom, I just adore the look of rose gold jewelry BUT each and every time I try a piece on, it seems to totally disappear on my medium tan Asian skin (collective horrified gasp from my much fairer, sun-avoidant ancestors). I am a winter color person too, and jewel toned colors look best on me. I find that icy white diamonds and icy white metal looks best on me, really contrasting with my skin. Second choice is 18kt yellow gold, which complements and brings out the warm tones in my skin. But sadly, rose gold just looks faded and muted on me.
That is what I’m afraid of...rose gold looking faded or muted. Just took a picture of my hand under indoor lighting, and my hand looks “pink”, so I’m afraid rose gold rings would not “pop” and just blend in with my skin. FE7BA64C-E146-41D6-AA1C-3161D3381648.jpeg

Thank you so much. It's funny how Western people love my skin tone and Chinese people tell me I'm too dark. Pale = beautiful in China, and all my life I've had very blunt Chinese people asking me why I'm so dark. My reply is usually "because I've been sunbathing" and they look horrified because apparently no Chinese person should do that.

Anyway, I've been wearing my 18k rose gold diamond by the yard style bracelet today with my 14k rose gold ring, and admiring how they look in the sunshine.

The colour is very complimentary on you ...or maybe you complement the jewlery

Honestly what is wrong with people always nit picking at what other people look like - especially mean when its something that you are just born with
I have a Maori freind who at 45 still won't go anywhere public in bare feet because growing up on the East coast region (where its warm but dirt poor) he got teased at school for having white feet

But serously my Asian freinds (looking at you especially @mellowyellowgirl ) use sunscreen ! especially if you live in the southern hemisphere - skin cancer isnt just for white people

At school i got called whitebait - its a skinny little tiny fish - because despite always having bare legs i just don't tan

What about mixed metal stacking ?

Im not giving up here, on spreading the rose gold love
Definitely still planning on the mixed metal stacking! but wanted to get a visual. I think @cflutist's stack really helped me see what my stack will look like.

Thank you to ALL who have posted pictures and provided feedback! I really appreciate seeing all the pictures, variations of the RG jewelry and the different Asian skin tones. I think my skin looks closest to @Logan Sapphire (at least based on picture comparison)!

It's really interesting the opinions of asian people. My family members are totally against yellow gold as it looks "old fashioned". Also we are not the palest of asians so white gold by default was the choice. I am really loving the rose gold though, I love how it blends in with your skin and really lets the diamond pop. My wedding ring is an old rosy yellow gold which I really love.

well, i am asian... and i have to reply to this thread!!! :bigsmile:

however, none of my stuff are in rosegold... i tried before and found it's too pinky for my skin tone and i feel it would limits my options of pairing it with my other pieces. so i did not go for it.

rosegold tend to look better on lighter skin tone, imho. if your skin has more of a yellow/brownish tone,, it does not fit too well. i guess it also depends on how "rosy" the color is. just my two cents. totally up to your preference.
