I picked up a Paraiba YAG from Gene - to set in yellow or rose gold?

It’s everything I’d hope it would be and a large stone at about 9 mm and 4.3 ct. I am wanting to set it as a simple solitaire. I had initially wanted rose gold but am now wondering if yellow gold would look good also. Any thoughts? How would either color push the stone color? E2710499-5405-451E-8B5F-9EB61721B394.jpeg

Yellow gold IMO would be more complimentary for this color stone. Pretty!

I chose white for my YAG as I didn't want to influence the colour of the stone if that makes sense. I wish I could show you but it hasn't been made yet :( My jeweller has been dragging their feet quite a bit.

To answer your question, I think rose would bring out the blue tones, and yellow would bring out the green tones.

I would go with yellow. I have a paraiba yag from Gene too and I think yellow would really make the color pop. Rose gold looks ok but not amazing. So, I’d stick with white or yellow gold.

Thank you everyone! So hard for me but I chose rose gold because I have no rose gold rings. I will get it set and post a picture!
