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.
