    The last ring (round with white gold) has a strip of gold protecting the tiny diamonds – this is the type of thing my jeweller suggested as it helps protect the tiny diamonds from being knocked. This ring also has space under it for a straight wedding band to go alongside. 

    But… after saying all that .. my favourite is the rose gold oval. I’ve become obsessed with ovals lately. That’s the setting I want (but I want a cathedral setting so the stone is raised higher and I can wear a band with it. 

    If you’ve got white prongs your stone will look white. Your stone is going to pick up colours from your clothes and world around you – I wouldn’t worry about any warmth being picked up from your rose gold. 

    So you really need to consider what sort of wedding band you want – it might help with your e-ring decision.

    Hi! I have a round diamond (would have gone oval though if I had more $$$ for a huge oval because I have chubby fingers and a smaller oval doesn’t look great on them), but my setting is a rose gold band with white gold basket. It truly is just as beautiful in real life and really makes the “whiteness” of the diamond stand out! I unfortunately dont have a great picture of my ring yet, but here is one in case you wanted to see what it looks like in real life kinda with the two tones. The white vs. rose is definitely a little bit more drastic in real life!

    Hope that helps!

    Hi! I’m brand new to Wedding Bee, but I figured this would be the perfect time for my first post since I have a rose gold oval engagement ring from Lauren B! My prongs are rose gold, but I haven’t noticed it affecting the whiteness of the center stone. The only thing I’ve really seen affect the whiteness is (obviously) the lighting of my environment. Natural lighting makes my center stone bright and white, while indoor lighting can sometimes make it look very slightly warm. I do have a diamond though (not sure if that makes a difference), but the moissanites I’ve seen on Lauren B’s instagram are so stunning! I’ve attached two pictures of my ring. One in indoor (shopping mall) lighting, and the other in shady outdoor lighting. Just for reference, my center stone is 1.01 ct and my ring size is 3.75 🙂 Congrats!

    My Fiance proposed over the weekend with my Lauren B. It was absolutely stunning (rs-275), but 2 stones were missing on the band. Sent it back. Today they sent the right back to us…opened it & the box was EMPTY. How did they forget to put the ring in?!? I’m pretty pissed right now. It’s supposedly being delivered, again, tomorrow. Fingers crossed there isn’t another problem, our engagement photos are this weekend. Hopefully is isn’t a normal thing for them.
