    I think that they look nice together (I like the mismatched look) but I would be concerned about the difference of wear between platinum and gold.  I believe that platinum is more dense, so it will wear differently and (I may be wrong on this) could sort of dent your gold band.

    Your engagement ring is beautiful and if you really love the look of the Cartier band, could you not explore going the custom route and getting what you really want?

    IMO, whatever you have on in the 3rd picture (i guess it’s the platinum?) is way too thick. it takes away from your e-ring.

    also, platinum will wear down your e-ring. stick with gold.

    I’m also concerned about the damage that the platinum band could do to your e-ring.  Everything I’ve ever heard says not to wear them next to one another.  I’d look into getting a custom wedding band made in yellow gold in whatever style you like best.

    I agree, look for a gold band.  Your ring is GORGEOUS and I think a thin gold band would look perfect with it. 

    As a sidenote, when we were looking for rings, our jeweler told us that gold is making a comeback!  I’m in the midwest but he said it’s all the rage on the west coast.

    Well you could always have a gold band made in the same style as the one’s you like. The other option is to get to bands and have them sit on each side of the ring therefore making it looked more balanced.

    i’m with everyone else. it just looks weird to me to have mismatched metals, unless you wear them on different hands.

    My set is mismatched, but the e-ring is platinum and the wedding band is 18K white gold. They’re both covered in pave diamonds too so it’s practically impossible to see the difference unless you look underneath, and even there it will take some years of wear before they start to look different.

    Yellow gold and platinum next to each other could be an interesting look, and the issue of scratching and denting really isn’t a big deal. All rings scratch and dent each other when you wear them side by side without soldering them together. But I think if you want the look of matching yellow gold, don’t sacrifice that because you’re having a hard time finding a yellow gold band. I absolutely think you’ll be able to find a beautiful yellow gold band if you keep looking.

    CUSTOM!

    I think mixed metals are fine (I hope to get a yellow gold eternity band as an anniversay gift someday to wear with my white gold set! ;), but if you only wear yellow gold and you love it, find a yellow gold band that you love!

    Girl, I must say if I woke up to  Cartier AND a Tiffany bag under my Christmas tree I’d think I had died and gone to heaven!  Your rings are beautiful and I’m only *slightly* jealous 😀
