FWIW, I think you can pull off the white metal beautifully! But the yellow gold would also be beautiful.

What size look do you want? I have a 7.5mm on a size 4 finger – so roughly 1 size smaller than you. I think it’s a nice size, but it’s a solitaire. It’s definitely a bold look but not overwhelming. With the side stones, I think 6.5mm would look really nice. 

And for yellow gold, I think near colorless would be fine.

ETA: Here is my ring!

With warm undertones in your skin, maybe try rose gold? 

I’m biased, though – here’s my ring:

I agree with a PP about rose gold, I also don’t like how white gold and plantinum etc look with my skin tone. I have an 18k rose gold engagement ring and it looks quite close to yellow gold due to the low amounts of copper in.

sparklyglitterbee :  thank you ❤️ We did design it together. 

I went and got my color palette figured out with Jennifer Butler (jenniferbutlercolor.com I think?) 

She is an absolute genius. So she told me my metals I could wear – rose Gold, and antiqued yellow. It took the guesswork out of it. 

I think the ring looks lovely on you, but the blue-white just stands out to my eyes as too cold for your skin tone. 

Ultimately, though, if you try on a bunch of things, you’ll find the color that just makes you melt. And that’s the right one (I already loved rose golf on me, so what she said wasn’t a surprise, just happy verification 😉 )

sparklyglitterbee :  Thank you!! It is a colorless (D-G rated) stone. Something about pictures definitely makes it seem bigger than it is – my ring looks HUGE to me in pictures but in real life it’s a very balanced size. My ring has a matching pave band that’s slightly curved so it sits flush, so I think that’s what I’m going to pair it with. I also debated a chevron band like this: Image result for chevron pave ring

Or an art deco band like this:

I think a 6.5mm/1ct equivalent would be a great size for that setting and your finger size, I don’t think it would look costumey at all. Maybe get a cheap 1ct equivalent CZ ring and see if you like the size on your finger and go from there?

I saw a bee on here with champagne gold. I’m not sure what exactly that is composition-wise, but it was stunning.
