That looks like 18k rose gold to me. 

Tianyu will give you by FAR the best quote, but I’m not 100% sure if they’d be able to do the fine detail this ring requires. I’d suggest posting the pics over in the Tianyu thread and asking bees there if they think Tianyu would be able to do this. 

For highest quality at the best price, DK is your man. If bees think Tianyu can do this ring well, and you’re willing to chance it, save your money and go with them cuz I bet it’d only cost like $500

Oh and 18k gold will give you a very yellow colour, not champagne

+1 what danaberries said. It’s definitely rose gold, but DK does have a 50/50 RG/YG mix you might like. I can’t tell if it’s a satin finish or just the lighting/filter but I agree that I wouldn’t trust Tianyu with fine and delicate details like that. I also wouldn’t give MoCo my money. Search recent threads about them.

This doesn’t look like 18k to me, looks closer to the pink pink colour of 14k. 18k will be a more yellowish-rose colour, more like champagne than this image for sure. My ring is 18k rose and it’s definitely less pink than the image you posted.

elainebenes321 :  the lower the karat of gold, the more alloy there is. Copper is the alloy in rose gold and is what is responsible for the pink colour. 18k gold will be less pink than 14k, 14k less pink than 9k, etc. The image you posted looks close to 14k to me, 18k has more yellow coming through because the copper content is lower so to me looks more “champagne”.

Ok update, Ella at Tianyu quoted $425, Moco was somewhere around $800. I know some people on here dont like moco, but Ive been bothering them since april with tons of questions and Im very satisfied with their customer service. I have mostly neutral olive skin and I feel like the more yellowy rose gold will look better on me. 

Im going for a delicate, vintage look that is somewhere between the practical and pretty rings I was debating between (enr149 and enr171 on moco’s website). I really want the low set basket of enr149, with a shank that isnt plan but also isnt too blingy. Im really loving the milgrain and three small stones on this band. If anyone has any ideas of something maybe easier to find, or a reputable etsy seller that may have what Im looking for please let me know. Ill attach some pics of the aesthetic Im going for (Im definitely set on a 7x5mm F1 oval moissanite).

I agree this is 14k rose gold. Champagne gold is unique color. You may want to see it in person before settling on it. Based on the prongs, it looks like it could be a satin finish but it’s hard to tell from this angle.

I don’t know who your best bet is (though DK made my ring which also has fine details and milgrain for a very reasonable price) but just wanted to say your inspo ring is gorgeous! I love the details on the band and the claw prongs.

elainebenes321 :  In yellow/rose gold?! That seems quite high, though I think DK’s prices have gone up since he made my ring ($2200 to set an OEC moissanite I bought elsewhere in platinum). Good luck!
