I guess it depends on your setting. Personally, I would go for platinum if your band isn’t paved because gold scratches. But, if there are diamonds all around it or even half of it, then there’s no need to worry about apparent scratches.

My way of thinking is that you can always upgrade your setting, but I wouldn’t want to upgrade my center stone. I would pay more for the diamond now and less on the band.

Plat and WG are slightly different colors. Have you tried each on to see how you like them with your skin tone?

I would go with the bigger diamond. Nobody will know the difference between the metals, but they’ll for sure see the larger diamond ๐Ÿ™‚

If the bigger diamond is still high quality, get that. I personally opted for platinum because I can’t be arsed to re-plate with rhodium, but I have a colored gemstone, not a diamond.

@jardi85:

Platinum best compliments diamonds, but I feel like the other bees are right, it is easier to upgrade the band and setting later than to upgrade the stone.

bigger diamond.

I have 14K white gold and I bang this sucker around on everything… I’m a clumsy bee. It still looks the same as the day he put it on my finger =) I had a similar choice to make and I wanted that 1 carat diamond… I love sparkles!
