I've been driving my future fiance crazy because I love all the metals. Part of me loves the cool look of platinum patina, it's very modern and clean looking. But is it grey in the end? I don't like grey. Then I also love the warmth and romance of yellow and rose gold. I have jewelery in all colors. My fiance hates yellow gold and a part of me really wants to match. Problem is I have no idea what looks best on me. I have pink tones to my tan skin? I don't burn when tanning, I just get tanner. I also go very light, pink/yellowy in winter. Basically my skin is confused. How to decide??? I've attached some necklaces around my finger lol

I love the yellow gold against your skin best. I think it pops and compliments your skin tone. The rose gold disappears and blends beautifully your skin color. The white gold is my third choice.

WG, YG, then RG is my humble opinion.

We have super similar skin tone! I find that RG blends against my skin too much and it’s not my favourite for rings. I wear/prefer white metals the most so I would go with WG (over plat, since you mentioned that you don’t like the greyness. WG can be rhodium plated so it’s shiny white) or YG.

I think RG looks best in the photo on you. RG melds so beautifully with your hand -- a bit like good nude lipsticks -- and so is my top pick.

And Platinum looks the second best.

I am a Indian too and obv have only worn YG all my life hehe and stayed from Platinum, as its just expensive silver right!

But I recently bought a platinum ring and I love how it looks. It is much more clean, sleek, solid and modern than silver.

White gold! The rose blends in too much, I think, for an engagement ring.

While I love rose gold, I think it blends in with your skin tone too much. I love the yellow gold on you, but if you want to match, the white gold will look great on you too.

Since it’s for a wedding, I think it is symbolic to accommodate both your fiancé‘s and your preferences so maybe white gold would be the best choice. Maybe for some traditional ceremonies like the henna party where he isn’t involved, you can wear yellow gold jewelry?

I think all the metals look good on you so don’t stop yourself from collecting them for your own enjoyment!

Thanks for the input! @okthen do you like the platinum patina?

The YG in the middle has my vote, and I voted for YG in the poll before I saw this pic too.

Yes! So my platinum ring I bought is a 2011 piece.

The patina is unnoticeable mostly but it does give the ring a nice more mellow/milky vibe than new platinum which looks a bit like industrial metal.

Still way "less" mellow or milky than silver.

In all, yes there's patina but it looks great.

Yellow Gold works best for Tan skin. I've seen lots of Indian movies and most of them are wearing Yellow Gold. Its looks stunning on them to be honest.

I suggest searching Pricescope for unplated white gold. I have a feeling it might look nice on you. It's sort of in between yellow gold and white gold. Warm without so much yellow. Here's a photo I found on line.
