My ring is white gold and my dress has yellow gold accents and there will be yellow gold accents everywhere along with warm jewel colors. My ring has a blue diamond and is white gold. I wouldn’t worry so much about it. If designers can put both metals in one piece of jewelry you can mix metals as much as you want

I do too. 😛 Its ok. I honestly think mixing metals is the “in” thing right now anyway. I see it all the time. But I have never seen a point ot all the fashion rules to be honest. I proudly wear my white shoes all year…most of those “rules” are outdated

i have been thinking about this as well! my ring is platinum, and i also have a sterling silver ring that I wear on my opposite ring finger most days that I want to wear as well. It is super special to me, as it was left to FI to give to me by his aunt, who was just an awesome lady and really special to their whole family. I truly do feel honored to wear it, and it will be special to have it on on that day.

it has a really tiny band, resized from something I couldn’t even fit on my pinky at first, and has a small flat top with an engraved, beautiful A (his aunt & my initial), but its not like super shiny silver anymore. 

my dress color is oyster, not really sure how to describe it, and i have a sash that has a little bling and beading in kind of a soft gold. I’ve been really attracted to brass/darker metal jewelry to go with my dress/sash, versus my rings. 

I dont think the mix will look bad, but i’m not really super into jewelry, and my dress is about 3,000 miles away at my parents house around where the wedding will be.

I definitely felt the same way for the longest time, and even debated buying new jewelry just the other week because of it!  My rings are white gold, and my jewelry will be yellow gold.  I have a champagne sash on my dress so I could probably go either way, but it caused me so much anxiety (and like you, it normally would not be a problem)!  When I decided on yellow gold, it wasn’t more than a week later that I was worried that my rings wouldn’t match the rest of the jewelry or that it didn’t match the crystals on the sash either, haha.  But even TLC’s What Not to Wear says you can mix jewelry without problem: http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/style/10-fashion-myths2.htm

But I think you should do what you want and I think you will look beautiful no matter what!
