hi all! My bf and I have started to get serious about engagement rings and I think we’ll be going the moissanite route. I can’t decide on a color for the band though. I’m wondering if I could see pics of your yellow and white gold moissanite rings. I’m worried the yellow might detract from the sparkle or pick up other colors, so curious to hear your experiences before I make a decision!!

To me seems like it depends 100% on the individual stone. Some pick up some colors that others do not. I would start to look into the exact moissy you want first.

My moissy is in a rose gold setting and I definitely don’t think it picks up any color from it 🙂 Plus I like that it makes the stone stand out. And it definitely doesn’t detract from the sparkle! I imagine a yellow gold ring would be much the same 🙂

My set is yellow gold and I love it. I notice that the metal does lend a tiny bit of warmth to my stone but in some lightings I don’t really see any warmth at all. My stone is colorless so even a tiny reflection of the gold prongs will be noticeable… but I love the buttery warm glow it gives, so not a big deal for me. I also love the contrast of the white stone to the colored metal.

This one is set in a two tone setting made by MoCo. I think it was about an extra $50 or so for the custom two tone.

I have my moissy set in 14ct and it doesnt really pick up warmth. I wish it did, because I love warm stones. I even have darker skin and the stone is still very bright and white, in my opinion.

thank you all for chiming in! it’s so hard because everything looks SO BEAUTIFUL. I think im leaning towards the yellow gold, there’s just something that keeps drawing me back to it.
now to scour the rest of the forums for other threads on moissanite and moissaniteco 🙂 so fun but so distracting!!

I think the gold colour has more to do with your personal preferences/skin tones (ie do you have warm or cool undertones that makes yellow or white gold more complimentary). The only thing I would consider with the stone is if it was low on the colour scale it might be “warmer” and go better with yellow gold.

I was concerned about my moissanite looking yellow so I went for a two-tone setting. I love it! But when I see bee’s with gold prongs, especially on older cut stones, I can’t help but wonder if I would’ve like that too. I am sure I would’ve but I am very happy with the two-tone. It makes the stones look like they’re floating
