I vote yellow because I’m over white gold. All my jewelry before my current e-ring has been white gold and now that I’ve gone to a colored gold, I don’t think I’ll ever go back to white gold. I love the depth and richness to yellow & rose gold.

Is it necessary to have G colored side stones? I’d probably switch those out to stones with more color, then go with yellow gold. It will give the whole ring such a warm appearance, but your stones will all appear whiter facing up.

I’d go yellow gold (or rose) with no side stones. The contrast of a warm stone next to white stones in white metal drives me bonkers. 

I did see a warm stone in a yellow bezel with a white gold halo with whiter diamonds and it was gorgeous though! I’d play up the color of the center stone no matter what. 

What kind of setting are you considering? That will make a big difference in answers you get here.

Have you considered rose? With the tones in your skin, I feel like it could be stunning on you. 

What a gorgeous stone! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

and congratulations on your engagement, bee. Yay!

Firstly, beautiful stone! I really prefer yellow gold BUT in your case the L will stand out against G side stones so if it was my ring I would emphasize that. I would set your L centre stone in yellow and the put the side stones/rest of ring in white gold.

There is a bee called KKJohnson who has a knockout marquise where the centre stone has a lovely buttery colour and it is set in yellow and the side stones are white and set in white gold. If you have a sec, take a look at hers to see what I mean.

I don’t think it works to have ‘G’ side stones unless the center was much further down the color scale so it looked like white stones next to a champagne center.  The side stones that you are talking about are not that large so it would be worth it to purchase smaller side stone in the i/J/K color range.  I think you would be making bad design compromises to get this to work.  The side stones won’t be that expensive. Look on ebay or Ivy & Rose for loose stones. I would go for lower colored side stones and put it all in yellow gold to play up the warmth.

Congrats!! I vote yellow or rose. I also concur if you are going to do side stones, go warmer than G

I’d also go for sidestones with more color. My mom has a warm diamond and recently put it in a halo with whiter side stones. To me the contrast is very vivid. 

That said, some people like the contrast but if you keep the whiter sidestones is go also with white gold to make the difference less pronounced. 

Love the stone btw. If it was me I’d make it a solitaire in a lighter yellow gold tone. (Take a look at niessing.com for gold colors)

I had a solitaire L in rose gold and depending on the light it would look yellow or very white so I don’t think metal color really matters unless you do a cup under the stone to bring out the warmer color a lot more of the time. Whatever you choose will be gorgeous though!

Here’s an example of both.  Both of these stones are the same color (and moissy).  The emerald cut is in rose gold (first pic).  The asscher is in silver with very white cz sides.  Placing a warm stone in white gold or silver vs placing it in a warmer gold, the color stands out much more against the white gold/silver.
