    Like yellow gold, rose gold maintains its color with no re-dipping needed. But I have heard some (inconclusive) claims that the different metals may wear on each other.

    If I were you, I’d still go with the 14k wedding band, though.

    I would get the 18k wedding band, only because I like the color of the 18k much better than the 14k 🙂 I also would be worried about them wearing on each other, due to differences in hardness.

    The 14k will be harder than the 18k due to a higher content of copper, this means wear on the 18k ring. I’d go 18k to reduce wear since your ring is 18k.
