I like the way they look together. I don’t think the band overwhelms the other ring.

I don’t think you need a spacer. They look good as is!

shalee325:  They look fine to me. 

However the platinum band might “eat” the white gold ring… look at littlemissmango’s answer on this thread: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/white-gold-ring-beside-a-platinum-ring-whats-the-verdict-help-please/#axzz389Gpd3Lg

Pricescope is generally very knowledgeable and so I find it interesting that they have some differences in opinion regarding this topic: http://www.pricescope.com/forum/show-me-the-ring/does-anyone-pair-a-platinum-ering-with-a-rose-gold-band-t128796.html

It isn’t about looks. If the girdles of one diamond touch the prongs of another, there is a potential for the ring to be damaged. A spacer is intended for the metal of the ring’s shaft (which can be polished) to take the brunt of the rubbing instead of the prongs from another stone. We cannot tell just from looking whether or not the rings rub in a manner that warrants a spacer, but I would probably wear one just in case.
