Does anyone here have a moissanite ring that is set in either rose gold or yellow gold?
Is the stone enhanced or no?
Do you have any issues with the stones picking up the color and looking tinted?
And of course please share pictures. 🙂

Oh, I do!
I love it. I got an unenhanced OEC stone in a yellow gold semi bezel setting. The only time when I think I notice anything in the way of color is when it’s really cloudy out, and I can’t say that I’ve ever noticed it picking up color from the setting. I really love the moissanite/yellow gold combo. I should add that I was hoping for a little extra character from my stone because I got it unenhanced, so I might not be as sensitive to color as someone who wanted a really white stone.

This picture doesn’t do the ring any justice, but the rose gold has no effect on my stones. The stone reflects the sky, and the lights, wherever I am, though. The best lights for the ring are in the elevator (I call it the glitter-bomb) and in my new house, where it has ‘light sparkles’. I should try to take some better pictures of it.

Mine is in white gold but I wanted to add that mine is in unenhanced and pretty much always white and shiny but there are lights/weather/clothing that change the colors in my ring. Mostly yellow or green reflect in it. I Love the colors but some people don’t And I think enhancing it is supposed to cut down on that. It also depends on the cut of the moissanite. =]

Yes! I love love love my yellow gold. My moissanite is Amora enhanced, which I love. I also have an unenhanced moissanite necklace, but I don’t have pictures atm.

@SweetandSimple: Are the accent stones around your ring moissanite or diamond?

(Sorry, no picture at the moment)
I have an unenhanced moissanite in a bezel setting – it’s round and about a half-carat equivalent (5 or 5.5mm I think.) My fiance and I designed it together, which was a really fun option, and we were lucky to have a jeweler who didn’t give us *any* sass about using a moissanite. She actually steered us away from enhanced stones (I think this would be the ‘forever brilliant enhancement’) because in her experience it didn’t make a difference – she had had a client who sent a moissanite out to be enhanced, and it still showed the same tiny bit of color. She also told us that round stones showed up the clearest, as well as those under about 1 carat equivalent. I love my ring and don’t have any problem with ‘off’ colors, though I’m not particularly sensitive to that aspect.

It is all made of Moissanite, including side stones. 🙂

@SweetandSimple: I would REALLY love to see more pictures of your ring. You should start your own thread!

I am sure everyone is sick of seeing my set by now, but I have moissanites set in yellow gold. The solitaire has palladium prongs, however as you can see in my band they’re bezeled stones in yellow gold. I also have a pair of earrings that are .50/ct studs set in yellow gold. I don’t have any up close shots of them though.
My main stone is enhanced, but not with Forever Brilliant or the Amora. I purchased mine before those enhancements were available. The stones in my band are not enhanced. My stones still look bright and white (for the most part) in my yellow gold. The only times I notice a yellow tinge is if I am in yellow tinted lighting (such as old elevators, stairwells, dingy bathrooms, etc) or if it’s really gloomy outside. I don’t think that has to do with my setting though, that’s just my stone’s personality and I love my stone regardless of it’s mood/the lighting! 🙂

I have an Amora-enhanced OEC in a full bezel, 18k yellow. In certain low or yellow lights I will get more warmth from the stone and a little reflectlion of the gold. I find it really appealing though. In overcast conditions it is bright white – I can see the faceting clearly as there is not a lot of sparkle since there is little light but it is white! In bright sun or light I get a lot of fire and sparkle, no yellow. I never see green.
I actually have had an unenhanced OEC in the exact same setting so can make some pretty direct comparisons. In low light this stone was much warmer. It sometimes looked closer to an M/N (my Amora is a J). As it also picked up the metal due to full bezel, in low light, it could look even warmer and quite yellow. In overcast it was more of a steely gray-white. In sun and such it was still sparkly and firey! Now, I did sometimes see green in this stone in my car if it was raining/stormy and gray-overcast. More of a greenish-yellow actually. It did not bother me though – I found it interesting.
I did not switch the stone due to colour. It was due to getting a small chip/scratch on the table. I liked the unenhanced as I love warmth (eg do not like D-H diamonds, no interest in Amora Gem) but they only had Amoras when I went to buy a new one so I took the chance. Well, I love it. I like my ring more than I did before! I still have the warmth I love, but not the occassional darker yellow or visible tint.
I should say there can be a couple reasons for this. One is that the Amora, though also an 8mm, is slightly bigger than the unenhanced so the bezel was rebuilt a bit and the lip made thinner in this process. This seems to have allowed for less reflection of the metal and blockage of light. Amoras are also screened, so it may be I just got a better cut and brighter stone without green tinting (Amora does not apparently always elinate an existing green tint – some Amoras still get that tint according to some other Amora owners and I know a couple who reported a green apple tint at times). On the other hand, some get very white unenhanced stones with no apparent tinting. I recommend either asking the vendor to pick one out for you, or to order a couple stones (be they both unenhanced, or one unenhanced and one Amora, etc) to compare with your own eyes as each stone is different!
I also have an unenhanced pendant (bezel) & have had studs (prongs) in 14k yellow gold and all were bright white face up. Some slight warmth from sides but white face on. These were all under 6mm and not worth enhancing for me.
