Cut: Round Brilliant Carat: from 0.37 to 0.41 Color Range: Near Colorless (G-H-I-J) Clarity: VS1-VS2 Message: The diamond size range is between 0.37 to 0.41. The ring would be in yellow gold while the crown in white. My price range is very limited… 600 eur. :/ what are the options? I think I will pair it with 4 or six claw classic setting from Blue Nile.

I generally recommend 6 prong settings as there are less reports of 6 prong settings being returned in favor of 4 prong settings than visa-versa. Blue Nile has it in 18k gold, whereas James Allen also has a 14k gold version available both of which I link to below. Platinum is available at both merchants if you prefer. I’d stay away from what is called “white gold” as that has to be re-plated with rhodium every couple of years to keep looking the way it’s meant to.
