    I have that rose gold ring (plated,  with cz right?)  Plating is better now than it used to be.  I don’t wear it every say, but I do wear a pair of plated earrings (from chine no less) on a daily basis for about a year now with no problems.  The plated ring rubbing against the ering might cause it to wear out faster though.

    I had a ring that was gold plated, a friend bought it for me thinking it was an actual gold ring (not plated). The plating came off eventually, and it could have been where I was going, but ever since then I had to get it replated often. Eventually it became costly for me to replate it as frequently as I needed to.

    What is your budget for this ring, if you don’t mind me asking.

    Many Etsy artists make amazing rings within budget. I have no doubt you could get either one of your rings in gold. It will make the ring much sturdier, as silver tends to bend after a while.

    If it is out of budget then I suggest a gold-filled band, as it is also more sturdy and stays in tack longer than a gold-plated band.

    I’ll post some etsy suggestions soon. 

    -edit- If you go the Etsy route, always double check with the seller if it is 100% gold, make sure you have them tell you it is not gold-filler or gold plated if you are purchasing a solid gold piece of jewelery. Check the seller reviews as well. I see many people posting Lord of Gems pictures on their etsy store.

    @Quicksand:  I had some rose gold plated jewelry that I wore quite often, and it definitely wore out the plating after a few months.

    I do like the flat edge of the first option only because you are intending on “stacking” it with another band from your second ceremony.  The shape of the second option may be difficult to stack perfectly against… 

    I feel the ideal scenario would be to have two different styles of option #1 – perhaps one in white gold and one with rose gold – with clear stones.  The blue stones definitely clash IMHO with the e-ring.  😉

    I have a sterling silver and morganite ring that is plated in rose gold.  I have worn it maybe once a week for about six months and the gold near the bottom of the band (near my palm) has already worn away.  I’m sure it depends on the quality of the plating, but I would go with solid rather than plated if I were you.  I did vote for ring #2, so pretty!
