    Ring #3 in rose gold, with white gold prongs. It’s beautiful and very classic looking.

    When I first started researching moissanite, someone told me that if you got yellow or rose gold prongs it would make the stone appear dull or cause the color to relfect into the stone more than having white gold prongs. For that reason alone, I was hellbent on getting white gold prongs, despite the fact I hated the way the two tone looked together. Well, at the last minute, I told my FI I wanted all rose gold–and I could not be happier! Getting the forever brilliant upgrade is going to help a ridiculous amount anyways. I honestly have not seen a single instance where my stone looked dull or as if it was reflecting the colors in the band or prongs. If anything, I think the contrast makes the stone look even whiter. The fact that you will be having a diamond halo is going to help as well, as the moissanite will reflect off of the diamonds. 

    For this reason, I voted ring #3 in all rose gold.

    I love number 3!

     

    i have rose gold with white gold prongs, and honestly i was expectig rose gold prongs when i had it set. I was initially a little dissapointed with them, and almost had it changed but ive grown to love the white prongs simply because, as you have said, it helps whitten the diamond.

    @MrsMeowton:  +1

    I don’t have a Moissy, but…

    My first setting was rose gold with platinum prongs. I loved the setting but had an issue with the center stone coming loose so we decided to replace it. My second setting is all rose gold, and my center doesn’t look dark or yellow ever. In fact, I think the contrast makes the stone appear brighter.

    Happy shopping!

    I personally like  #1, because I like the smaller stones, but they’re all very pretty!

    I have a rose gold ring with rose gold prongs, and I LOVE them!! Even just looking at your pictures, I think the one with the RG prongs is so much more eye-catching. My micro pave stones do look a little pink-ish, but they are SUPER tiny. My center stone never looks at all pink or warm, and it’s way smaller than yours will be!

    I like #1 the most.  I would do rose gold with white prongs.

    I voted for # 1.  It is elegant and timeless and harmonious.  It will be breathtaking in rose gold!

    OMG, if you get #3 in all rose gold I will buy it off you for a million dollars…after I win the lottery. 

    AFAIK, 10k will be stronger as gold is quite soft, pinker (more copper), but will contain less gold, it will be more lightweight I think too. It might cost less too, but copper is pretty pricey itself.

    If you’ve never worn rose gold I’d buy a cheap band from etsy and wear that around for a while to make sure you don’t have any allergies and that you like the color. Copper allergies are rare but that would really be unfortunate! If you can wear cheap earrings and such you’re probably safe for white gold.
