This depends on a few factors, however if you are currently 50/50 on both or you can swing either way. We can tell you with certainty that rose gold is the way to go. We found a much higher % of women prefer rose over yellow (about 75%), also rose goes well with all skin tones, while yellow doesn’t go so well with lighter skin tones.
Let’s check some other scenarios,
By default we make all of our yellow and rose gold rings with the top in white, this is has been the current fashion for the last 70 years or so. However you can customise your ring if you would like the top of the ring to be the same colour as the band, in other words the whole ring all yellow or all rose.
We recommend for everyone to stick to keeping the top white, however there are exceptions. If you are buying a diamond that is low in colour like “j” and below, we then recommend you go for all yellow or all rose. The reason for this is because by contrast of the metal surrounding the diamonds (the claws) it will make the diamond whiter in appearance. Be aware the opposite effect happens if for example you put a “J” or below colour diamond on white claws, the contrast will make the diamond look more yellow than what it is.
This is an old trick of the industry when it comes to low colour diamonds, and it does work like magic. However we do not recommend you get diamonds that low in colour, but if you must go for a low colour then that’s a useful tip to boost the whiteness in the diamond.
