They will go together fine. You won’t notice a difference.

Color wise I think you’ll be ok, unless someone is that close to your finger to notice.  But 10k is stronger than 14k so it may very well scratch your ering.

My wedding band is a different gold karat than my engagement ring and they don’t seem to make any difference.

@MademoiselleL: I meant to add, I will be getting a ring with metal that doesn’t match my ering, so I’m obviously not too concerned about it, I also do not intend to constantly wear them as a set

Color wise I think you’ll be fine.  I personally prefer the lower ‘K’ (I always wore 10 until my first engagement ring, which was 14) because it’s stronger.  I had a solitaire with a wrap and a wedding band, so they never rubbed each other so I’m afraid I don’t know about scratches.  I think I’d be MOST concerned about damage from prongs if they stick out, because sometimes they’re a stronger metal (mine were platinum).

My engagement ring is 18K and my wedding band is 10K.  I wear them together all the time and they don’t look different.

my engagement ring is 18k white and my wedding band is 14k white.  I’ve only been wearing them together for three months, but so far, there is no scratching and no color difference.

My ering is 18K and the band is platimun. As long as the Engagement Ring is kept up well and redipped when it needs to be it’s not noticable that they’re different. and my e-ring really only wears on the back side of the band anyway.
