Solitaire or three stone?

@owls:  So I would definitely set the center stone with white gold prongs and do the rest of the ring in yellow gold.

Personally I think that multi-colored three stone rings in general are hard to match but especially when the colors are as close as white and buttery yellow (or even the more contrasted white and yellow ring you posted), even though I love the look.

For me, pairing a white and buttery yellow stone ring with basically a white wedding band looks less intentional, so I would look at ideas to make it look intentional. Maybe a band with alternating white and buttery yellow stones. 

I also really love the way that the coffeefiend did her wedding ring, because I think it keeps the cohesion of the three-stone theme:

But you should do whatever you like the most!

I think it’s a great idea! but somehow the smaller side stones look very dull? Usually smaller stones look brighter/sparkly than a large stone -maybe the lighting? I also think a greater contrast would make it look nicer. The extra yellow gold in the prongs really helps that contrast. If you switch to less metal it might make all the stones look more or less uniformly yellowy

The picture of the oval ring you posted is very nice, but the sidestknes are clearly fancy yellow, which is why it looks so good. Using the rounds you have, which are U/V color to my eye, does not give as bright a contrast. I’d make earrings out of the round stones and get 2 fancy yellows instead. They will cost a lot more but the effect will be much sharper. I’m just thinking that the impact you’re looking for will be muted because there’s not enough contrast between the stones.

@sharpshooter:  totally agree!!! This would look awesome

 

OP – I thought the stones you are going to use as side stones look almost champagne like, which I love. There is a contrast for sure and I think a two tone setting could emphasize the color or each stone. I actually have the reverse of your future ring with a champagne center in yellow gold with GH side stones and rest of setting is white. I adore it and that’s all the matters. If you love it go for it!!! As others said though, I would stack it with a different band.

@owls:  thanks! I wear it on my ring finger. That’s actually the only finger I wear rings on ๐Ÿ˜‚ weird, I know. 
Here is how I’m stacking it now. I’m waiting for two yellow gold bands, a rounded lacie and another custom. See second post since I can’t post two photos at once smh. (Excuse my laundry baskets – I’m procrastinating lololol)
