greenc51: Both of my rings are rose gold, one is 9k while the other is 14k. Haven’t had any problems with them. Both just as hard as any other metal and don’t really scratch up much, and I wear mine to work which has me doing all sorts of things.
Rose gold is beautiful. I think it would compliment that colour of diamond.

Rose gold is just fine! And rose gold together with a champagne diamond sounds magical! Post a pic for us when you get it! 🙂 <3

Rose gold is beautiful and I would definitely recommend it! Also your jewler isn’t very bright, you can find pink sapphires anywhere. I saw them in Zales the other day. You can also just uy a loose stone online and get it set, that’s what I will probably do with my engagement ring since I want a morganite. Good luck! 🙂

greenc51: Wait … was the salesperson talking about the prongs? Was she talking about using platinum prongs maybe? Because that makes sense to me, but what you wrote doesn’t make sense at all. I think a rose gold ring would be gorgeous with a champagne colored diamond but lots of jewelers will use platinum (which is white) for the prongs because it is stronger and will therefore keep the stone in place a bit more safely. Nothing wrong with doing that, it probably wouldn’t look “funky” as you put it.

Rose gold is fine for everyday wear. I have a bezel RG solitaire and an inherited rose gold/platinum diamond and ruby ring from my grandmother from 1925. My original ering is also RG champagne cluster diamond ring. Love love love rose gold! 😊

My rose gold has white gold settings and I don’t really notice. I think that the side stones show up more in rose gold than white gold, it helps it to pop instead of having just a bunch of shiny stuff as the band. On the other hand, I think the white gold helps the prongs to disappear and make the solitaire stone the star.

Get your money back, order a pink sapphire online, then have it set in a rose gold at a local jeweler. That lady is full of it.

Pink sapphires are not rare at all! Like others have said, look online, or find a vendor who can source one for you. I’ve been on a hunt for one and I have been able to browse through many pink sapphires.

ROSE! I have a 14k rose gold ering. Have had since 2014. It’s TOTALLY fine for everyday wear. She’s full of it.

greenc51: Rose gold is white gold with copper in it. Don’t think it makes it softer.
Also….champagne diamond would look better with white gold. The yellowy gold of a champagne diamond would blend too much with a completely different coloured hold. White gold will make a coloured stone really POP. 🙂 Google it! Champagne diamond with white gold and then Google champagne diamond with rose gold (to me it darkens the champagne diamond and make it look more brown).

There are TONS of pink sapphires in the world, and their price varies according to hue. I have two that are set in rose gold halos and it works perfectly. They are widely available online from very reputable dealers. I don’t recommend a second choice stone, and too many places sell “champagne” diamonds for much more than they are worth.

I wear several rose gold rings. Have for years. Never had a problem. I even have two rose gold rings dating back from the 1860 s so I think they can hold up just fine 😉 Interesting when commissioning someone to make a ring in rose gold they gave me the same line. To be perfectly honest I think they just don’t like dealing with rose gold because it’s not that common yet although it’s starting to appear more in the jewelry stores than it did a few years ago. If you think it looks good in rose gold and you think she will like it I would go ahead and go with that. Trust your instincts. Good luck!

Not exactly sure of your shape and budget, but on Leibish a round, 1.45ct Fancy Brown diamond is about 5k and has a diameter of about 7.25mm.
All of these pink sapphires cost at least a grand less, and are about the same size (one slightly smaller, one larger, one just about right). I’m also not sure how pink you’re looking for, so I included a range. This is just a quick look around on some of the more popular recommended vendors’ sites.
