- Wedding: March 2013
Bees, I need your help on this wedding band that Fiance and I found this weekend. It is exactly what I was looking for, and more! BUT… I have major concerns that I hope you all can help me with.
1. The diamonds on the wedding band definitely come into contact with my engagement ring setting (see pic below). I am afraid that over the years, the diamonds will wear the e-ring away! I asked the jeweller about this, and she said that it always happens, and you can always bring in your e-ring to build up the metal again. My e-ring is platinum, so I thought the metal wouldn’t be worn away, it would only be scratched and displaced… Do any of you have experience with diamonds on a wedding band rubbing on an e-ring setting? How many years have you had yours do that, and what has your experience been like? Any other input/advice?
2. My e-ring is platinum, but the wedding band is 18k gold, and I am afraid that the platinum will “eat away” at the white gold band. Is this a major concern? I am not even sure the platinum will come into contact with the band much, since the diamonds touch the e-ring first, and kind of keep the metals from rubbing against each other that much.Do any of you have experience mixing metals like this? Advice/opinions?
Fiance and I have this ring on hold until Tuesday. I absolutely love it, but I want to protect my e-ring and get a wedding band that will last a long time.
