I have been driving myself crazy, trying to decide why my setting bothers me. It might be that the melee is G-H and my stone is L, so I feel like my stone doesn't match the setting in temperament. I want to ask you (Missy) if the difference in color between the platinum setting and your L diamond ever bothers you, because I am wondering if a platinum solitaire would solve my issue or if I should be thinking about maybe 14k yellow (which would make my diamond seem a bit whiter without adding too much yellow to it) or rose gold (which would celebrate the slight yellowness and make it colorful). I am interested in hearing from anyone with a warmer diamond about what works or doesn't work for you. I love my diamond and I want it to be in a setting that supports it. In some lighting, it's totally fine, but in other lighting, the difference between the main stone and the melee bothers me.
