No pics to share, but a way to play up the yellow would be to use yellow gold in the setting (either as the entire band or as the prongs).  You could also use gemstones or candlelight diamonds instead of white diamonds if you’re looking for a setting with accent stones; that way you’re not having to worry about color matching.

I have an M but I don’t think of it as yellow. It appears white but with a slight tint in certain lighting. We set it in a white gold solitaire. Here it is showing some color (and reflecting some from the ring box).

And how it looks most of the time:

If your stone is very yellow as you say, it will be gorgeous set in yellow gold!

Here is a pear-shaped stone very low on the color spectrum (W-X), but it’s not quite fancy yellow. The owner has had it set in different yellow gold settings and they really show off the color.

Definitely set it in yellow gold and consider adding green, red or blue side stones or halo–Examples:

Green: peridot/emerald/sapphire

Red: garnet/ruby/spinel

Blue: topaz/aquamarine/sapphire 

They can really set off the stone and make the entire ring look richer and warmer.

I have a fancy intense yellow diamond.  I told Fiance I wanted no lighter than U-V.  It should definitely be set in yellow gold if its on the lower end to accentuate the color but anything above S-T depending on the flouresence wont look too yellow set in YG,just warm.  You dont have to have the whole thing in YG, just the head.

Heres an S-T stone (not mine) set in yellow gold, imagine how much lighter it would be set in white.  Good luck!

Also, Diamonds by Lauren specializes in yellow diamonds. They have fancies, but if you look in the “colorless diamonds” section they have a lot of rings with lower-colored white diamonds. You can see examples of how these stones are set, for example:

OMG. I should have my ring soon but I’ll totally post once it’s in my hand. We bought an S-T color stone and had a halo setting made for it. Jewelers were split on what we should do for a setting. Some recommended solitaire styles and others recommended halos. 

We picked a halo and it is AMAZING! Seriously. Pop it in a halo with white stones and it bursts into the most brilliant yellow. But by itself, outside of a setting it looks creamy. It’s crazy and beautiful. If you can get the stone out of the setting I totally recommend trying the stone out in some halo or 3 stone rings with other white stones that while contrast the yellow. It’s pretty cool how they can change colors. πŸ™‚

As promised. The pro shot then my less-than-pro-shot. πŸ™‚ It’s an S-T set against H colored stones in a halo setting. I was hoping it would look even more yellow. Now I’m contemplating getting YG prongs in the future. 

Did you ever figure out what type of setting you wanted? Did you end up going with the solitaire or something different?

@Eight6Eleven:  I think this is a great suggestion.  I recently saw a ring with a yellowish diamond that had a ruby halo, and it looked gorgeous!  Since seeing Mrs. Estep’s new ring, I’ve fallen in love the color combination of ruby, yellow gold, and diamond.  

Unplated white gold with sapphire accents I think would be a beautiful combination, too.

Here are a few ideas:

My antique solitaire is L-VVS1. I keep the white gold unplated so the buttery color accents the stone.

I know this is an older thread, but I wanted to share mine too, for future reference πŸ™‚ Mine is also an heirloom diamond. It’s an Old European Cut VS1, M-N color. You can probably see the slight tint, but with the white gold, I think it’s barely noticeable.
