The clarity doesn’t change between rose, yellow or white gold as you still want an eye clean diamond.  The only thing you can get away with lowering is the colour as creamier shades look lovely in rose or yellow good but can look wrong against white, but it is personal preference and some people don’t like lower colours even with rose gold. 

SI1 is a nice clarity option when the stone is under a carat as you can get a really eye clean diamond and the cost is a little lower.  Eye clean stones low on the clarity scale become difficult when the carat size goes up.

Anytime I see someone mention ovals, I always say look at August Vintage Ovals. So sparkly, for an oval.

Everyone is different, but I didn’t want to pay for clarity that I can’t see without magnification. My stone is an SI2, but is totally eye clean. The grade setting inclusion is one feather that cannot be seen unless magnified. You have to look harder for eye clean SI2 stones, but they’re out there and are a good value. 

Ovals do tend to show more color; mine is an I, but looks white in most lighting environments. Mine is set in rose, but if we had chosen a white metal, I likely would have gone higher in color.

penny1403 :  if youre having it made custom, personally id go with a low color, like J or lower, and look through a bunch of stones to find one that looks brown tinted, rather than yellow. I think brown really compliments pinks, so a brownish stone in rose gold would be gorgeous imo
