Moissanite and yellow gold
I see most moissanites (and diamonds, for that matter), set in white gold. I figure it's probably mostly due to what's currently in style, and yellow gold seems out for the mo'.
But reading about moissy being 'moody', I wonder if the color of the metal will affect it a lot?
I imagine a white moissy solitaire probably not so much.
But what if I wanted to take colored moissanites, like purple, and set them in a yellow gold band? Would the color be lost, or is it strong enough?
(Any pics/vids of colored moissy + yellow gold would be very appreciated!)

RE: Moissanite and yellow gold
Yellow gold has actually become 'on trend' recently. Many members have set their moissy in yellow gold. Not completely sure about 'coloured' stones...but plenty of regular moissanite.

RE: Moissanite and yellow gold
My newest set is in yellow gold. My stone is white though. I did opt for white gold prongs. I love it! Not quite sure about colored moissy in YG. I don't think it would affect it too much.

RE: Moissanite and yellow gold
Thanks for the heads up to get me here, Turks. Wink

I have all yellow gold. Every single piece of jewelry I own. I don't have any colored Moissanite, but here are some photos of white Moissy and a smattering of gemstones, if anything helps you out...

Amora Moissanite solitaire and Moissanite bands.

I don't wear this many bands at once, but there are pink sapphires and blue sapphires in this shot.

RE: Moissanite and yellow gold
@MrsK - that set is *gorgeous* !!!

@sparkletiger - thanks for the pics! Smile I *love* that last giant blurry one showing all the fire! Drooooool!

@Hadley - wow! I love the warmth of yellow gold <3 It doesn't seem to affect the color of the white moissy so I guess it would be safe to combine with colored moissy without affecting their color too much.
I want a two-tone yellow-white gold (but mostly yellow), with white (unenhanced) and as-dark-as-I-can-get purple moissy! Big Grin and maybe a bright fuchsia sapphire, since moissanite doesn't come in that color.
*crossing fingers for the purple!*
