    @blushbliss:  Yeah, I see what you mean, but it seems like you’ll have to make a trade-off either way. ๐Ÿ™

    @blushbliss:  I can understand that. You (we) sure wouldn’t want anything to happen to that pretty girl. I swear, someday I’m gonna win the lottery and the next day I’ll be sending pics of your ring to my favorite jeweler so he can make one for me. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I really do like the “rose” band. I was going to get rose gold for my new solitaire e-ring, but chickened out right before we placed the order because I got an OEC moissy and I was afraid the rose gold would make the moissy look pink. I don’t think you have to worry about that so much with a diamond. I do regret it a little bit that I didn’t go with rose gold…sometimes…I waffle daily…I’m so indecisive!

    @blushbliss:  I’m the opposite. I’m waiting for my white gold jewelry to warm up a bit. I’m not a fan of white, white white gold, reminds me of silver. I hate silver. lol. It probably doesn’t remind me of platinum because I’ve never owned platinum or knew anyone else who’s owned it either. Anyway, that’s probably part of why I wish I had gotten rose gold, pooey! No matter, I’ll change my mind tomorrow anyway. ๐Ÿ™‚

    i don’t know how true this is, but when we bought my ER jeweler said that they always recommended 6 prongs for gold settings. I ended up getting a platinum so I only have 4 prongs, but I wonder if anyone else has heard this? Maybe it’s dependent on stone size?

    My favorite on the bee:

    I would choose a rose gold setting (you know how much I’m in love with the colour!), with 6 rose gold prongs. I find 6 prongs actually make the stone look larger. It’s more secure too.

    @blushbliss:  I like the six prong rose gold setting you posted! Get something sufficiently different from your ering! I really would do the prongs in rose also though. I think a rose band would just be lost if you opted for a white head. I had a rhr like that and didn’t like it at all (and had it reset as you may recall!).

    Ick, I hate mixing metals with the head a different metal. I really dislike the way it looks. Rose gold won’t reflect back a lot of color into your stone so I wouldn’t worry about that. I love the way 6 prongs look. I voted to do the custom rose gold ring! It will look fantastic with that band. I don’t think it will affect how big your center stone looks either.

    Do it, do it, do it!!
