I just selected my engagement stone am totally overhwelmed when it comes to choosing the type of metal setting I want! Originally, I was set on rose gold, but was advised that the color of the stone might be too matchy-clashy. Platinum and white gold have never really appealed to me, and seem to stark a contrast. Would yellow gold be better? I want a simple band with just some diamond on the side of the band.
My stone is the top , more yellow one in the pictures. Please help!

I would have also chosen rose gold, it would enhance the color of the stone. Beautiful by the way 🙂

I do think yellow gold will complement your beautiful stone well. What cuts are you considering for the side stones?

I’d lean towards rose gold, too. What about 18k rose gold instead of 14k? Or peach gold?

I think rose gold would look better than white or yellow.
I have a peach sapphire set in 14k rose gold. It shows up more pink in photos, but in real life it looks much more peach/champagne.

I think yellow gold is going to pull more yellow tones from the stone and rose gold will pull more peach

I don’t think it would be too matchy with rose gold, I think it would be lovely. A lot of jewelry stores have bands without center stones in them yet, you could probably bring the stone in to hold onto a rose gold band and see how you like it. I went into a couple stores and did this, however I used sapphires from their inventory. But if you planned on getting the ring made at the store, I’m sure they’d be happy to do this.

My peachy champagne sapphire is set in rose gold and I love how the colors compliment each other 😊

I think peach gold would be amazing with that stone! Also, David Klass makes an antique yellow gold. That would be another beautiful gold with it.

I just got mine today and went with yellow gold. I didn’t have a yellow gold ring and wanted one is why I chose it. I think your stone is beautiful and will look great in any of the metals.
