I have a question about wearing 2 different rings on the same finger.
My engagement ring is a 9ct white gold ring and I want to get a platinum wedding ring.
I have heard than one of them will get scratched as they don’t have the hardness so I was considering getting a cheap sterling silver ring to put between my two rings, so that ring would be a protection. Could sterling silver scratch 9ct white gold or platinum?
Here is my 9ct white gold engagement ring:
Here is the sterling silver ring:
And here is my (hopefully) future platinum wedding ring
Thanks in advance,

Platinum scratches very easily, so I voted yes; that said, platinum will scratch regardless of whether you have a spacer or not, but the tiny scratches create a soft patina that many people love (myself included). So I wouldn’t be all that concerned about scracthing platinum – the good thing about it is that when it gets scratched the metal is simply displaced rather than lost, and you can always get it polished by a jeweler to renew the shine.
That said, in the case of the above rings, I’d be more concerned about the stones in the silver ring than the silver itself. Usually when people buy spacer rings, they buy a thin plain band to avoid the issue of stones or hard edges scratching metal/other stones; buying an infinity band kind of defeats the point of a spacer. If you want to wear these three together, I’d wear the platinum band in the middle rather than the silver ring.

Thank you very much for your very detailed and quick answer 😀
Do you think this would be better :

That’s definitely a better spacer band in general, but I don’t think you need it to place between your ering and a plain platinum band! I’d skip it unless you prefer the look of a spacer.
