| Anonymous Reader


Hi there, I have a 4 carat marquise stone, being in M color with strong flo, the stone itself sometimes looks lemony, and sometimes look white as in in an I J color.

I am torn setting it in a rose gold or white gold halo pave? any thought would be appreciated.

Hi, it is a matter of personal preference; however, I would set the 4ct marquise, M color stone into a rose gold setting. In my opinion, it would look more romantic and vintage, as well as better complement the color of the center stone. I hope this helps.

Thanks Sebastian, I am setting the stone in rose gold, I am more struggled to decide whether to have it halo in white prongs or rose prongs the rest of the ring works definitely be rose gold.

The melee I assumed would be very white and sparkle, I don’t know how the melee going to contrast with the m color stone. Maybe is I set the melee halo in rose gold as well, it would complement the center stone better?

Hi, the prongs should be in rose gold. If you like the idea of a two-tone ring, and the melee will presumably be whiter than the center stone, then perhaps they melee should be set in a white metal. I would suggest, however, having the entire ring in rose gold.

Thank you so much for your advice, I have one more question on the ring, I’ve learnt that having a white bezel should up play the warm stone color, making the center stone looking whiter, any thought on that? Should I bezel the center stone before the rose gold halo?

Any thought on rose gold or white gold bezel then melee halo? Thanks!

Actually, it is to the contrary. A white metal against a warmer stone will show more of a contrast, showing more of the warmth of the stone. If the warmer stone is against a yellow metal, there is less of a contrast, therefore making the center stone appear whiter.
