I have an M in yellow gold with white gold prongs.  She’s a delicious vanilla in most lights.  She faces up extremely white in some lights, but can look a little beige in some lighting. I personally love that she is a chameleon.

I have an I colored (not as warm as you noted) but it’s set in 14k rose gold and it’s lovely. It doesn’t come off as too warm, but rather just right, but I do think I’d notice the color more and not like it in white gold.

I have a K (no fluoro) 14k white gold with rhodium plating. Depending on the lighting it can be really white or somewhat buttery. Here’s an example of it showing more color.

I bough a J colored diamond with medium fluorescence. I cannot see warmth at ALL… fluorescence really makes the color look whiter!

I know exactly what you’re talking about. I was wondering why half of the jewelers I went to said yellow gold helps mask the diamond color and the other half said it makes the diamond look much yellower than it is. I guess you have to come to the conclusion on your own and this is the one I came to: it makes sense that a yellow gold head (the prongs where the diamond is sitting) will make the diamond more yellow, based on the reflective properties. I think that’s why so many “yellow gold” solitaire ring settings have a yellow gold band and a white gold head. The yellow gold band provides enough of a “yellow gold”-look to the ring that, to the naked eye, it helps make a yellower diamond look whiter. That’s what I’ve decided. That’s why my J-colored stone will be set in a white gold/platinum head but the band will be yellow gold.

20sparklingyears :  I dont spend half as much time on the boards these days.  After the last big moissanite debockle I decided not to waste so much $$ on projects 😀  I’m keeping a low sparkle profile these days and it’s killing me lol

von03 :  that is AMAZING…

I have a K color antique pear diamond set in 18k yellow gold. It’s warmth shows the most in harsh/led lighting. But I also love the warmth of antique diamonds.
