I went to get my ring sized a week after being engaged and when I was dropping it off I decided to try on wedding bands…as you do! My engagement ring is white gold, most of my jewelry is yellow gold and I really wanted a yellow gold engagement ring. My fiance and I searched everywhere and these days all you can find is solitaires. I thought to stop me from wishing I had a yellow gold ring I could get a yellow gold wedding band. When I told the store clerk which band I wanted to try on I got a “Why?” and confused face. Um because I want too? I tried it on and loved the look together, she then told me that she thought it would be really ugly but it isn’t that bad.
After that experience I told my mom and got the same reaction. Is mixed metals really that bad? I know they are not everyones taste but not one person has made me feel okay about it. I want to go back and take pics of it with my e-ring, it is a really small and dainty ring so the contrast isn’t so drastic.
Do you have mixed metals? If so please post a picture! Or what is your take on it?

My best friend has a matched set that features both white and yellow gold on both the e-ring and the wedding band. Perhaps you could consider getting two identical wedding bands — one to wear on each side of your e-ring — that are both yellow and white gold?

Yay. I like mixed metals if done right, but I do like an eclectic look!
I find lots of older generations do not mix. It used to be you “had” to match it all, including to your purse, and shoes and purses “had” to match. That is really not the case anymore at all. Mixing metals is quite the thing to do now! Lots of people stack may different metals, colour stones, designs, etc as well.

I love the look of mixed gold colors. I am not keen on mixed metals (platinum with gold for example) due to stratching. You could even add a rose gold one later. Mrs.Trailmix has a LOVELY mixed gold set! It’s seriously to die for.

No, mixed metals isn’t bad. It’s a cool look, I like the contrast. As long as they have the same karat weight (um, is that the right term?), you should be good.
