    I have always liked silver better.....except when I got married, I got white gold, since platinum was too expensive!

    Tried to add it, but can't figure out how to....guess you could just vote for which color metal you prefer then!

    Gold/yellow looks very ucky against my skin color (extremely pale). I like white gold or silver.

    Silver/white gold does not look good on me so gold is my favorite.

    I always liked gold best, but when I was sick several years ago I couldn't wear gold because it turned my skin black . . . and it was all the "good stuff" as well . . . mostly 24K with some 18K.

    During that time I bought several silver pieces.

    Now I wear whichever goes best with my outfit.

    My rings are all gold, but I have some nice silver bracelets and a watch.

    I think yellow gold looks a little more classy. That is my wedding band. I also like white gold, that is my mothers ring. My mom always told me that gold will never go out of style!:p

    Yellow gold for me. I have some kind of allergic reaction to white gold and silver. It makes me itch and break out in a rash. I do wear come silver necklaces, just not next to my skin.

    I have tons of silver jewelry! Some bracelets were given to me by my sister-in-law when she lived in Nepal and in India. They are gorgeous.

    But I guess my favorite items are Brighton pieces.

    I like the look of silver so much better. I never buy gold jewelry. I want white gold (or platinum :D) for my wedding ring.

    I prefer yellow gold-- it does look better on me-- but my engagement ring and wedding band are white gold. My center stone is an emerald cut diamond and I thought it looked better in a white gold setting than yellow. :p DH agreed.

    I like silver better than white gold, but that is just because white gold items often "turn" on me. My wedding band is platinum, and I'm not too thrilled with it. I have a very strong opinion against yellow gold...just can't stand it!

    I don't like yellow gold.

    I only wear white gold. I'm allergic to sterling silver.

    When I got married, yellow gold was in, so I wear more gold. I like silver too. I have a necklace that I never take off (St. Christopher medal, Scapular medal and Cross) which is gold. Once in awhile I wear silver if I think it goes with an outfit better.

    I prefer silver. I've very fair complected and gold doesn't really look good with my skin.

    DH needed a wedding band MUCH tougher than gold because he's a geologist. His is tungsten, which can only be scratched by a diamond. My titanium one is a little daintier, since it's strong enough to have an open weave pattern that looks like eternity symbols. Both appear on the silver side.

    My b/f was looking at the tungsten rings, and really likes them. How does your DH like his?

    He's really happy with it. It maintains a really good shine with minimal polishing (just use the corner of your shirt now and then) and it stands up to just about anything without a scratch. It also looks gorgeous and unusual.

    Silver! I am addicted to silver earings.:cool:

    I think anyone can look good wearing silver or white gold, but yellow gold looks good only in some complexions.

    I know this wasn't directed at me, but my BIL's wedding band is tungsten and he loves it.
