Set diamond in yellow or white?
Quote this post and reply to it Post#1 @ 03-19-08 , 09:19 PM


Hello Everyone

Just a quick question. Have finally bought a beautiful diamond, GIA 1.4 C colour E. Have been told by some people and many jewellers that I should have the stone set in white gold so that it does not take on the reflection of the yellow gold which will make the diamond look yellow. Others have told me this is not true that it is a myth. I love yellow gold but having paid all this money for the diamond I want it to be shown off at its best. I am now confused. Can someone help me out with this one ???

Thank you Janice

Hi,

It is not a myth.

White gold prongs or crown will make the diamond look whiter than yellow gold.

IMO, Platinum helps even more.

If you want it in yellow gold, put it in a yellow setting with a white head/claws. I only wear yellow gold and all of my diamond rings are set that way, it shows off the colour without picking up the yellow.

Like so The band is yellow gold but like Brian suggested, the entire baskets holding the diamonds are white. My diamonds are G colour so not as colourless as yours, but in this setting they are blaaazingly white!
