Question ladies –
Is it better to have the same K gold for your engagement and wedding band?
My engagement ring is 18K gold, but the wedding bands I’m looking at (thinking of getting one made) are all in 14K.
Would they rub against each other and potentially damage my Engagement Ring because 18K is generally softer??
Or should it not be a problem?

My e-ring is 18k gold. My band is platinum. I was warned not to do this. But I’ve been wearing the set almost for a year now (not soldered together) and they’re perfectly fine. Perhaps it depends on the style of the rings, though (like how thin the prongs are, where they could rub…). The prongs on my e-ring are huge. But even then I see absolutely no scratches where they hit each other.

I know it’s harder to find 18k, and more expensive… but you’re much better off getting the same grade of metal, particularely if you have pave on the sides, or your band touches the basket of your ring.

If they are white gold, they’ll be rhodium plated most likely, so it won’t matter.
