The I is a 1.44. It is set in white gold now, but it's bothering me and just doesn't look right. Maybe that is the issue, the gold is too bright for the stone. I was thinking of returning it for platinum or a French pave shank. My only concern with the pave is will the I color stand out more against the pave stones (G to H color).H color I think you are fine either way. With I color, is the band just metal or will it have diamonds on it? Also, what size is the center stone. If it is a larger I color, I think you are better off with platinum. If the band is encrusted with diamonds, you won't see as much of the metal so you could go either way. I think if the stone is of a certain size in an I color the bright, gleaming white of the white gold in a metal-only shank may cause the I color to look for tinted.
I had 1.1ct I colored diamond set in platinum with pave diamonds and I could occasionally see the tint. It bothered me so with a bigger diamond (1.44ct), the tint might be more pronounced. However, I am rather color sensitive. As far as setting, I like platinum, it is care-free.I was thinking either the same plain shank I have but in platinum or the pave shank. I hadn't really thought about whether the pave would be white gold or Platinum. Do you think platinum would be a better choice with pave considering the stone color?
