20k vs 22k yellow gold
So after the lack of grey spinels, Joe suggested either black rhodium or yellow gold for my sapphire. So I started looking into both, and was thinking of 20k yellow gold. But then Lorrissey thread yesterday made me think maybe 22k yellow, after looking at that site that BMV posted. So I am back to a bezel, bit a bit heavier than the ERD one, but in yellow gold. These are the only pics I could find with both ct weight and a dark blue stone. Which do you like better?

Are you planning on doing the same kind of finish?

yes, I think textures, but lighter than the first one. More brushed I think, like MC2.

I'm going for 20k just based on durability. I think 22k might be a little too soft for a ring.

RE: 20k vs 22k yellow gold
haha, that is what Dom said. I am not going to set it like that though. While I the second one is really cool, it is not working with my blue jeans ring theme.

I think as long as the setting is solid enough, both are fine. Both are soft(er) than lower kt weights, but the way I wear my rings, I am ok with either. But the setting will be heavy, which I love.

i like 22k based on a "go big or go home" philsophy. It is incredibly rich
