So after finally picking my stone (my lil cushion garnet), and working out the general details of the setting, this project it starting to get REAL. I am looking for opinions on this please because my husband refuses to have an opinion either way (he's no fool, lol) and I just need to bounce ideas and get feedback from somebody, and, well, I can't think of a better place to do it.
So, the setting is a three stone halo, and I was teetering between rose gold and white gold, and so after mulling it over (and over and over)... I decided that I would like the ring entirely in white gold, with the exception of the prongs ONLY in rose gold, hopefully to enhance the vivid color of the stone. Well, I received an email today from the jeweler, and he suggests to do the entire halo and basket (I think that's what it is?) in rose gold. I am attaching the sketch sent to me. Basically the yellow on the drawing indicates where there would be rose gold, the remainder being white gold.
