Personally, I prefer the look of silver to the look of gold. So, even if I choose gold I tend to choose white gold. I do have some yellow gold pieces that were gifts that I've had for years. And I've got some pieces that are mixed gold and silver that I like very well, particularly with some of my western clothing; but mostly I think silver wins hands down where I'm concerned. And, really, I think silver makes most stones show up better, too.
