I am in the process of getting a D colored Forever One Moissanite set in a 14k yellow gold or 14k white gold bezel style ring. I am trying to get a ring that is as low maintenance as possible…so having a yellow gold bezel ring would be ideal. But do you think the yellow gold would reflect too much yellow on the moissanite? I am very color sensitive so I am trying to see if it is better just to go with white gold? The thing about white gold is having to redo the rhodium plating once the white gold wears off. If anyone has pictures or videos of a D colored moissanite in yellow or white gold…I would love to see it!
Thanks for your opinions/help!

A D will be very white in yellow or white. It’s colourless, so you really do not need to stress about playing down or playing up warmth or anything. In yellow it will clearly be a contrast between yellow and white, it will not look yellow.
So go with what you prefer. I prefer yellow gold to white gold, so that would be my choice.
What about getting a white gold alloy that does not need plating – like Stuller XI or a palladium-white gold?
If you do get plating, it won’t wear very quickly (if ever) at the bezel anyway. For that reason, you can even ask about a two-tone – yellow gold shank and white gold bezel?

Great choice on the bezel, how about unplated white gold? Or as raykay said pallidium or mixed metal shank and head.
Cant wait to see it finished 🙂

I do not think you need to worry about the color of the gold affecting the color of the stone. It is very white. Mine is set in a 6 prong unplated white gold setting. I love that I will not have to replate it, and the color is lovely. It seems to have a slight warmth compared to rodium plating when looking closely.
Either or will look gorgeous!

Thank you so much for your advice. I think I am going the palladium route. I forgot I am very sensitive to the nickel in gold.

Id say go platinum in you can, my ring is rose gold but I had the prongs done in platinum so they wouldn’t take away from the White of the stone

I have always had palladium and absolutely love it!

Honestly, I’d go with platinum or palladium. It’s a *little* pricier, but it’s definitely worth it, in my opinion!
