Hello all! I am currently saving up for an upgraded e-ring from Schubach’s! I have had a few different rings over the years, so I’m confident on the style and stone I want (FB OEC moissanite, solitaire with double claw prongs), but unsure on which type of gold to go with. All my rings have been white gold, but I feel there is something about yellow gold with moissanite that is special.
Im going with this setting:
And a 2 carat FB OEC moissanite (or possibly an OEC Amora gem, if there are any in stock when I purchase!) but potentially yellow gold. I found a ring online that is the same setting I want in YG,
but I’m still torn between the two metals. I love warmth, so yellow gold is a top contender at the moment, but wanted to see IRL pics from you ladies with moissanite in either yellow or white gold and which you prefer!! Post any pics (preferably with moissy, but diamond or any gemstone is fine too!) and let me know which you like best!!
I’ll be getting an antique floral band to go with the solitaire, so if you have this style band it’s a definite plus to post IRL hand pics!

I have a 2.5 carat Round Brilliant Classic moissanite and its set in yellow gold claws. I have a Two toned band, it’s 18k yellow with white gold inserts lol. But I love it in yellow gold! I think your ring will be beautiful! There is a Bee, please forgive me I forgotten her user name but she has the most beautiful old cut diamond solitaire RHR in yellow gold! It truly looks beautiful!

With an OEC FB I would do yellow gold.

I am shocked to say this but I LOVE that setting in yellow gold! I have a three stone FB moissy in white gold and never really cared for yellow but I think with that setting it looks so classy. Here’s mine:

And I also have a 7.5mm OEC moissanite set in all yellow gold:
I love yellow gold!! 🙂

I love yellow gold – I find any engraving or filigree shows up better with yellow or rose gold. As well, I’m not a fan of having to re-do the rhodium plating on my white gold every year or two.
Heres mine – unfortunately I can’t get the engraving to show up really well with my camera, so posting what it looks like on me, and the official photo Mine is a 1 ct lab grown diamond

I have a 1.5c FB OEC set in rose gold! The stone will look whiter in white gold, but I prefer the setting you picked out in yellow!

thank you bees! I really love the YG, so I might as well go with what I want most! I know WG is very popular now and I wasnt’t sure if YG would come across as dated, but I want something timeless! I may see if they can make it YG with WG prongs like GemmaBella’s ring (gorgeous!) if it wouldn’t look strange.

Have you contacted Schubach’s to make sure there is an FB OEC in stock? I just wanted to check because I know C&C have stopped cutting it and supplies are very limited at this point.
With that said, it looks so regal in gold! I would probably lean towards getting it in WG if all your other jewelry will match it (or go with yellow if you need an excuse to start a yellow collection 😉 ) or mix metals!
Maybe go for the YG setting and go with a white and yellow gold stack or a two-toned band.
I have two 1 ct FB OECs, one is set in white and the other in rose. Here’s some pics:

Go with yellow! Mine is rose gold with platinum prongs, so in my personal opinion id get the prongs in either that or white gold which dosnt take away from the stone (mine is a forever one moissy)

Oooo wee that is gorgeous! My favorite gold is white, but I LOVE the yellow gold more for this setting and stone combo. Gonna be a stunner! My ring is unplated white gold with a Forever one moissanite.
