What kind of metal is it? Are they different metals? I’ve heard if you wear gold and platinum together the platinum is harder so it can do that to the gold.

I would go back to the store and see what they can do for you. That should not have happened.

Yeesh!  You’re making me nervous.  My e-ring is platinum (also from Tiffany’s), and my wedding ring is platinum from Brilliant Earth.  They are not going to sit flush, and I will pretty much freak out if my wedding ring starts wearing down the prongs of the engagement ring!

Mine are similar, and I was pretty sad when I noticed the changes.  I don’t want them soldered, and I like wearing them together (so I won’t just leave my e ring for special occasions), so I’ve just decided to let it wear a little and I’ll get it fixed in a few years.

The only thing I’ve done that maybe you could do is to minimize the time you wear them together.  I always wear both rings out of the house, but at home I take off my e ring to sleep (when I assume a lot of the wearing down occurs) and when I cook, wash my hands, or shower.  In my head that cuts the time they’re hitting each other in half…

It would be because of the platinum. Platinum scratches, knicks, and loses it’s shine quicker than gold.

I had friends that got platinum bands and within just a few months they became really damaged.

Generally gold is “softer” but these days it’s mixed with things to make it harder and last longer.

If you got any kinda insurance through the store I’d see what could be done.

I know for me, after seeing my friends rings and hearing the cost of them I’ve decided to stay with White Gold.
