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.
