Does Yellow Gold Band change Diamond Color?
Quote this post and reply to it Post#1 @ 05-15-12 , 12:04 PM


I was told a yellow gold diamond band will have a slight effect on the diamond itself --- that a diamond with even a grade D will have a tiny tint of yellow when closely looking at it. Does anyone know if this is true? If so, would a grade G look the same in a yellow gold band that a D does?


I have never purchased a diamond ring and am in the market to learn (and soon buy) a diamond engagement ring. Any info that can be offered would be a huge help -- thank you!

No.

A D diamond will look clear even in a gold band. The contrast is real stunning and its purity shines forth.

And a G diamond will still look like a G diamond, though contrasted with a yellow gold setting it won't be as noticable as having as much color as when it's contrasted with white metal.

I hope I wasn't too confusing.

Yes, unfortunately the diamond will reflect back the color from the band in which it is set. If you are thinking of getting a diamond that is colorless, then most jewelers would recommend setting it in a white metal setting.

Many people save cash by getting a near-colorless diamond or even K, L, or M that are super-ideal cuts, and have them set in a two-tone or yellow/rose gold setting. The diamond still looks amazing and the color is camouflaged by the surrounding metal color.

Not true. D color has no yellow in it at all.

That was not the question.
