I have posted this before but it’s a great trick so I’ll repeat. Setting a warmer stone in yellow or rose gold will make the stone appear whiter.  My stone is GIA J color (they are the strictest on color and many jewlers  it was closer to a G) in rose gold and it lookes so so so much whiter now!  DO IT!!

shoutouttoallthepear:  by slight gray tint do you mean it’s got a kind of steely color to it? I love when diamonds have that! Is it possible to lay your diamond next to or on top of a rose gold piece of jewelry? That way you can see how it looks before you decide on rose gold. Honestly though, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a diamond of any color not look great in rose gold. So I wouldn’t worry, you’ve always wanted rose gold!

shoutouttoallthepear:  I say do it! Rose gold looks beautiful with lower coloured diamonds. 

I have a heart that’s a J colour set in 9k rose gold custom band:

She shows more colour in photos than on real life. But personally I find with the lower colour she looks more vintage/antique and compliments it.

I think the grey tint will compliment it. What shape are you looking at? Cut is king also when choosing a lower colour graded stone, an excellent cut will help with the colour and make it sparkle like mad. Also check for its inclusions, such as where they are located and kinds, mines white so extremely hard to find even with magnification.

My diamond is a J, and I LOVE it in rose gold. I wanted a warmer stone, but I feel like the RG brings out the best in my diamond – it looks white in almost every lighting situation and I like the contrast between the bright stone and the colored metal. When the warmth does show, it looks nice next to the RG.

My J stone is set in rose gold! I love it! My diamond has blue fluorescence which also helps offset the color.
