    Either will be beautiful but I vote white gold. 

    I love the way it makes the prongs melt into the stone.

    I’m with @Jillyb33 !! I think the white gold suits the diamond better and it would give it a floating look above the rose design. Love your ring!! 😍

    I have a rose gold ring with platinum prongs, I 100% love it! The white prongs make them barely noticeable and I love the way the diamond stands out against the rose band

    I vote platinum. White gold if that’s not possible (though if the plating wears off it will be off white/champagne color, plus platinum is stronger)…you still get the look of rose gold but it makes the moissanite look a LOT better when the prongs are white in my opinion. I have a yellow gold ring with platinum prongs. It looks great. Then the metal color isn’t taking away from the stone, and the stone can stand out more yet contrast nicely with the rose (or in my case yellow) gold shank.

    TBH,  I actually like the look of rings with colored prongs,  too me,  the white gold prongs look strange with yellow or rose gold settings,  but it’s all about personal preference.  It’s not the end of the world if you’d hate it.  Rings can definitely be repronged.

    I echo the PP who pointed out that white gold goes off white when the plating begins to wear off. It might not have been as flattering to your stone then, so the rose gold could turn out to be a better choice in the long run.

    citizenerased14 :  Sorry you cant change it, but I honestly prefer the rose gold prongs with the rose gold ring better.. I recently got a rose ring made in yellow gold and got my prongs in yellow too, cause I like it being all one color. Here’s a pic of mine! Also…. Your ring is gorgeous, it’s gonna be amazing in rose gold!
