    I thought mixing metals was the odd way.  Most people I know match.  This is coming from someone who mixes everything all the time.

    I am OCD about mixing metals too.

    hah… call me a lunatic but I was panicing about having an engagement ring that I would wear every day not matching some of the yellow gold jewelry I own.

    I don’t think it odd at all that you want your metals to match. I like them to match, too. It’s just a matter of preference.

    @Mrs. Myrtle Beach:  No. I’d say that the majority of people want their metals to match!! Its more unique to mix metals. I don’t like mixed metals.

    Most people match their metals.  She was just trying to make you feel weird so she could get a sale.

    It’s Zales for god’s sake.

    Many people match. I feel it’s a dated concept, but certainly not uncommon.

    I think matching metals is more common than not matching metals. It would drive me crazy having two different metals that close to each other.

    @Mrs. Myrtle Beach:  Im a mixy matcher.  My ering is white gold, and my wedding band is gold. 

    My RHR is diamonds laid in platinum, which is all on a yellow 24K gold ring.

    When I was younger I absolutely hated the idea of mixing metals, but it’s grown on me quite a bit (obviously) LOL

    I would prefer that all my jewelry metal colors match….however…yellow gold is expensive. I wear silvertone earrings from time to time. but prefer my 22kt yellow gold earrings or my 14kt yg hoops. for bracelets i prefer beaded..some color that matches my outfit. i usually don’t wear necklaces. if i had other rings besides my wedding set…they would be yellow gold.

    @Mrs. Myrtle Beach:  pretty setting! it will be gorgeous once it’s done! You aren’t weird for wanting your metals to match! I wear all white metals (e-ring is platinum, everything else is WG or sterling silver). The one exception is one of my RHRs (I wear 3 all the time). FI bought me a claddagh ring my first birthday that we were dating, and it’s yellow gold. I didn’t say anything to him about not wearing yellow gold, because he said he picked it out specifically because it had an amethyst and purple is my favorite color. I thought it was just so darn sweet, so 7 years later I’m still wearing the same yellow gold ring mixed with all my white metals! It does bug me a little that it doesn’t match, though lol
