      Seems like white gold enhances the shine of the gemstone. Most people nowadays even purchase sterling silver for their engagement rings, with a synthetic diamond. Financial crisis makes people think in practical ways.

    I always feel like white gold doesn't look like gold.  And there's no contrast with the blazing whiteness of the diamond.  Yellow for me.

    Whatever looks best on you.  We're all individuals and for me, the only criteria is that a person loes the ring they have.

    Depends on personal taste. I picked white gold because I tend to wear more silver than yellow gold. Again, just depends on what you want to look at every day.

    funny that, one ring would be an engagement ring, the other a wedding or fashion ring, maybe an eternity ring, which you usually dont get until years into a relationship. I would say, I would prefer yellow gold to white. And I would prefer the eternity ring if the relationship is good, the eternity ring is one of love. ... for if after many years you are still making the effort to give a sign of love, then...

    Recycled gold! I did an article on it for another site awhile back and was amazed at the number of gorgeous recycled gold rings on Etsy.

    If you're after a modern look, go with a silver-colored band. If you want a more vintage style, go with yellow.  If you want the focus to remain on the diamond, again go with silver. You don't want the band to outshine the diamonds.

    Definitely white gold or platinum(first choice if it was an option) and I would only do yellow gold around a yellow diamond which is very pretty. And even with the yellow gold and yellow diamond, they use white with the rest of the ring. It doesn't look two toned, it blends nicely. With an all white diamond ring, i would stick with the white gold or platinum. Just my opinion.

    I love Platinum but depending on the stone/stones the cut etc. you could go with white or yellow.

    Mine's yellow.  It was my preference and looks best on me.  My daughter, however, just got a white-gold ring a day ago - and I think it looks nicer on her than yellow gold would.  (I'm going to be a mother-of-the-bride for the first time.)

    Gold ring looks more sophisticated, but you should find some diamonds for it. Try this page http://www.pricescope.com/wiki/wholesale-diamonds for this aim

    So beautiful rings! I saw some with the diamonds on the site orospot.com, you can choose one here if you need. Anyway, I think white gold is much better

      I love silver best, but a jeweler told me no one uses silver anymore, they just use white gold.
