The >{\arrayrulecolor{<color>}} can be used before vline tabular preambles like |.

In the following example, I set all three vlines in yellow.

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage{colortbl}
\usepackage{hhline}

\begin{document}
\setlength{\arrayrulewidth}{2pt} % to highlight array rules

\begin{tabular}{|c|c|}
  \hline
  a & b \\ \hline
  c & d \\ 
    % set all three vlines in yellow
    \hhline{
      >{\arrayrulecolor{yellow}} | 
      >{\arrayrulecolor{red}}    =
      >{\arrayrulecolor{yellow}} |
      >{\arrayrulecolor{cyan}}   =
      >{\arrayrulecolor{yellow}} |
      >{\arrayrulecolor{black}}
    }
  e & f \\ \hline
\end{tabular}
\end{document}
