    Hmmm, I like the idea of a white gold engagement ring and a rose gold wedding band. Classic with a twist!

    Knowing my frugal side, I’d go with the white gold one on clearance and save $1000. That is a lot of money that could be put to other uses, and the while gold is more classic. I’d be worried about growing tired of a rose gold e-ring. While it’s pretty now, I’m not sure I’d still love the look of it in 30 years.

    I answered white gold because i think that the pink diamonds would stand out more in a white setting (think contrast, diamonds are not great at picking up color in metal and reflecting them). Plus having the pink wedding band will make your e-ring look very romantic when it’s added on :).

    I love the setting! Dream combo would be customized white basket on a rose gold band with rose gold wedding band with diamonds to bring in the white color on the band too.

    EDIT: I said white basket so the diamond looks super white in the middle of it, versus the pink basket.

    If you wanted to go with the less expensive version i might get the rose gold engagement ring with a white band because lots of gals have white gold e-rings from their SO and add the colored band on their own so you would be a little unique in having the rose gold on your e-ring instead of on the band.

    Either way, it’s important to make sure it fits in your guys’ budget, but honestly, you will have this ring and wear it every single day for the rest of your life and you really need to love it! What’s an extra $1000 now in the course of a lifetime? (only if you have it though – i don’t want to give shady financial advice! haha.) Gorgeous set though – super exciting!! Congrats!

    @letigre:  My basket setting has diamonds on it and is in white gold. Never seen it in any other metal but what I do know is that the white gold doesn’t take away from the diamonds. They still sparkle well on their own. 🙂
