I’m decided on a rose gold setting (which you can see in my other post) and I’m going to customize it with a cushion moissanite between .85 and 1.1ct DEW (5.5-6mm). I like the idea of having a slightly warm stone especially because I think it will complement the RG. In a lot of the photos I’ve seen, the DEF can sometimes appear too white and the GHI too grey or muddy (but is that just the pics making it look like that?). I don’t mind what people describe as “moody” with the GHI stone in terms of it turning different colors including greens and yellows – I kind of love that – I just don’t want it to look muddy (sorry, another vague desciptor!). Does anyone have a GHI in rose gold they’re willing to show off?
Also, with such a smallish stone, how much does color matter? I’m very proud to get a moissanite, I’m just not partial to CZ’s (despite seeing many beautiful one’s on here!) and want it to look like what it is, a beautiful moissanite!

2ct ghi color crushed ice moissanite in 14k rose gold. It’s pretty white, I only see a little warmth in some indoor lighting but it doesn’t bother me at all. I haven’t seen a colorless in rose gold only in white gold so I don’t know how it would look but I imagine you can’t go wrong with either option. Good luck and please share pics when you get your ring!

DEF 2 carat oval in rose gold, I’m actually selling it because I got a different ring but I think it’s very pretty- I just discovered I’m a halo girl. Hope the photos help your decision!

Mine is a DEF/colorless moissy in rose gold. Sometimes it does show as a pretty “icy” white, but I personally like that look/wanted it! But if you’re thinking you want warmer, go warmer! 🙂
Here is mine, just so you can see how the very white stone looks in the rose gold (in a few different lightings!). I know you’d asked for pics of warmer stones but I thought it might help to see the other side too and compare!

Yes, actually this is very helpful! I absolutely love the look of your DEF stone against the rose gold.

I love both of your ovals (A very close second form me after cushions)!

I lean toward the GH moissanites as well. Here’s my GH “near white” moissanite in yellow gold – hopefully at least somewhat helpful!

I have an EF color OEC moissy and GH color hearts and arrows moissy. Here are pics of them set in the same rose gold ring with white gold head. I tried to find pics that focus on color more than cut. The EF is definitely whiter/icier in almost all lighting and can appear to have a florescent hue at times. The GH faces up white but is warmer from the side and has a steely gray color in some lighting.
They are both pretty. I think it comes down to personal preference. I am very color sensitive, so the side profile of the GH in the white gold head bothered me. I think if the entire ring was rose gold, it would not have bothered me as much.

My moissy is DEF and then diamonds in the band are F color. I love the combo with rose gold! I still feel like there is a little warmth due it to rose gold even though my stones are all colorless. This is as white as my moissy ever looks.

I have an 8mm h&a H in color. I love bear colorless stones in rose gold! I don’t prefer icy white stones and my H is plenty white and it may actually look more white because of the warmer gold. I also have white prongs. I’m attaching some pics and I hope it helps!

This was my first ever moissanite purchase, a few years back now so the stone offered at the time (from MoissaniteCo) was a Forever Brilliant, which is in the G-I colour range.
It’s a 1ct round solitaire in rose gold, white gold prongs. Size 5 finger. I hadn’t actually seen moissanite IRL before ordering it but was pretty amazed at the brightness and sparkle when I opened it.

These are all so beautiful. Definitely leaning towards a warmer stone.

Mine is GH F1 in platinum 8mm. The DEF iS too steely blue for me. When I’m in the sunlight it’s white, I really don’t see any warmth. Just a preference. This looks more natural to me.

DEF 2ct moissy in 14k rose gold. Lighting isn’t great in this pic but the rose gold really sets off the stone. Only complaint is my hunny thinks my skin is already rose gold colored (probably why I am attracted to that color) so it doesn’t “pop” like a white metal & actually looks more like yellow gold on me, even next to actual yellow gold.
But beauty is in the eye (or “I”) of the beholder & I do love the sentimental romance of a heart-shaped stone sweetly seated in the crux of the chevron band (10k RG).
