I htink it would be fine, but the best way to find out would be to go take some pictures and report back!

I don’t think it would look bad or anything.  Be aware that if the rings rub against each other, that platinum is harder than gold and the gold could wear down from the platinum contact/rubbing.  I don’t know how fast you’d see the wear, would depend on the contact, although if you solder them together I think that would prevent the wear.

@JoolyBee:  It’ll probably be more fun to look at them in person than on the internet anyway =)

I have a silver Engagement Ring and I will be wearing my grandma’s yellow gold wedding band. I think it’s unique. ๐Ÿ™‚

I have been told that over time, the harder metal will scratch the softer one, but I’m not too worried about it.

I have a platinum ering and a yellow gold band and I love them together. The yellow gold plays off the patina of the platinum in a beautiful way!  It’s kinda hard to tell in this pic since it’s in direct sunlight, but you can at least see they don’t clash.

I love mixed metals ๐Ÿ™‚ It gives an srtistic and ecclectic look ๐Ÿ™‚  That being said, I cant tell the difference between white gold, silver and platinum except by weight and hardness. I dont love rose gold and yellow gold together (personal taste) but I love either gold combined with a white metal.
