@DMC:  oooooh. I vote for peach sapphire and rose gold. 

I had the dilemma of rose gold vs. white for my set. I chose rose, and even though I didn’t think it would, it kind of bothered me that all my other jewelry is silver and clashed. I think it’s really wise for you to consider other colors of metals as stacking rings.

I would definitely recommend a sapphire over morganite since sapphires are harder. I had a garnet for an engagement ring, which is a 7-7.5 (morganites are 7.5-8) and I’m rather clumsy and work with my hands and I destroyed that garnet. Now I’m getting a couple of sapphires, with mixed metals so it will go with any jewelry I’m wearing. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope this helps :)) Good luck.

@OP: You sound so much like me!! Just this morning I said to SO “Do I get rose gold and throw in white every so often or do I get the whole thing in white and add rose when I feel like it?” …. which was greeted with a giant eye roll. I think the rose/pink is STUNNING and even better, so unusual. That said, if you’re crazy like I am and think you would really be bothered by it not matching most of your stuff … go with white … yep that wasn’t very helpful was it :-/

I’d go for the rose gold and peach sapphire. If you were to get a white sapphire (with white gold) in that size, I’d be afraid of it looking dull/glassy. Not bashing the stone – I’ve seen some beautiful white sapphire rings, but the bigger you go with that, the less fire it usually has.

@DMC:  Rose gold because you won’t need to worry about re-plating!

I think the rose gold is a great option. It’s very beautiful and will also be a more unique choice.

love the rose…its stunning!

I personally don’t like mixing and matching metals, so I would stick to the same metal or colour that your wear most often, but if you like to mix and match, go with the rose!

Rose!!! I love morganite with rosegold, but a peachy sapphier would be gorgeous as well. If I had it to do again I would do rose gold. ๐Ÿ™‚

No matter the metal, I’m totally voting peach sapphire! I just don’t find white that inspiring.  I think I’d go white for the ering and rose for the band, just to balance the amount of pink in my set ๐Ÿ™‚
