It really depends. The best way to figure this one out is to go to a few jewelry stores and try a bunch of different rings on. I am very OCD, so to me, they would have to match, but that said, I have seen some really beautiful nonmatching sets.

One thing to remember about silver is that it tarnishes and has to be polished.  For this reason, white gold is much more popular than silver for engagement/wedding rings.

I think it would look a bit odd to have nonmatching rings, unless they were being worn on different hands.  Some people do wear the engagement ring on the right hand after marriage, so that would be one way to go.

It totaly depends on your style. . .My grandmother had a white gold e-ring and a yellow gold band.  She wore both together.

Obviously, the question of whether white and yellow gold go together is a matter of personal taste.  You might look at a wedding ring which had both yellow and white gold in it, which would pick up the yellow gold of the e-ring while still including the white gold element.  Or if you find another combination you like, go for it.  Whether it is to my taste is obviously not relevant, if you are the one wearing it.

You could always get your dream s-bar ring as a wedding band in white gold and not wear them together. . .and you could maybe find an economic yellow gold band to match your e-ring when you want to wear them together.  I’ve seen 14kt keepsake bands from Walmart for $63.

If the colors are an issue, you can always get the yellow gold band now and maybe get a white gold s-band as a future present (maybe anniversary?).  You could then wear the s-band sometimes rather than the wedding e-ring set.  

Another idea that just came to me is to place a small white gold band on each side of your yellow gold solitaire. . .it might look more balanced that way since you’re mixing gold colors.  I think that could potentially look awesome.  What about a very thin band with diamonds or czs. . .Something like this http://www.pompeii3.com/site/index.php?p=anniversary_rings&pp=detail&id=1886

My SO gave me a committment ring because we are currently in an LDR, and he wanted me to have something to remind me of him.  I plan to use the ring he gave me and put one of these on each side of it in the future as my “everyday” wedding set.

I wouldnt like to have two different color bands because Im weird about that stuff. I think this is one of those personal taste questions…and I think it looks good on others but it is just not me to have both gold and silver on top of each other. So if YOU like it…and think its ok…go for it. Do you have a silver ring you can just wear with your e-ring so you can see how it would look and how you would feel about it?

If you REALLY want the silver wedding band and end up not liking it with the e-ring…maybe you can wear your e-ring on your right hand?
