Tricks of the trade: Let’s face it; most girls prefer their engagement ring to be made of white gold or platinum. For the lucky few whose fiancé to be prefers yellow gold, be happy, be very happy. When setting a diamond into yellow gold you have the option of choosing a lower diamond color which will be kinder on your wallet. Feel free to choose a diamond in the H to K color range without worry about the diamond appearing yellow. With the diamond surrounded with yellow gold, it should appear whiter than when you see the diamond loose. Now your budget will allow you to pick a diamond low in color but high in clarity without sacrificing size. Otherwise if you’re sticking to white gold, stay with a G color or higher and SI2 clarity and higher and you should find a diamond that’s nice and in your budget.
