I use a spacer in mine because without it my wedding ring sits right up on my engagement ring basket and I don’t want them touching. For me a .80 mm spacer is just enough space to keep them from touching and you barely even notice it. It was also cheap AF on etsy. 90 dollars. I didn’t think they could come so low priced in platinum.

For your ring it’s hard to tell because I cant see how close it gets to the basket. If they were my rings I would get a skinny spacer just in case but that’s just me ๐Ÿ™‚

As far as metals both my rings are platinum too and I still feel safer with the spacer ๐Ÿ™‚

I would probably wear a spacer with that set.

My ering and wedding bands are pave set in platinum and I wear either a platinum or rose gold spacer in between to prevent them from “eating” each other.  I don’t really like the look of a spacer either but I think it’s neccessary.

At the moment, I’m wearing two tiny ball and chain rings..one in white gold, one in rose gold as a spacer and I much prefer this look.

For your set I think I would get a spacer yes, if only to keep the wedding band away from your e ring because of the diamonds and the pretty details!

You could probably just buy one right now and then get a second in a month or two. My set is going to need 2 but I’m waiting to get number 2 until next year and just wearing the one ๐Ÿ™‚ If it helps I’ve had mine on since March with my e ring and it’s been pretty good!

As far as mixing metals, I couldn’t tell you ๐Ÿ™ I get super bad rashes if I wear anything but platinum for very long x.x So my rings and jewellery will always be platinum. Even though I get a severe hankering for rose gold lmao.

I would suggest a spacer as well.  My pave set wedding band has torn up the basket on my engagement ring.  I need to have it replaced now because of the wear and tear the wedding band has caused.

I’m not a big fan of the way spacers look. However in some cases I do think they are necessary. I have a pave shank with a pave wedding band. After about 7 months of constant wear I started to notice that my wedding band is eating away at the base of my engagement ring leaving a very noticeable notch. I do plan to get my set soldered eventually because like I said I don’t like spacers. But for now I wear a very thin 0.75mm rose gold spacer in between. 

I also wanted to mention that since you need two spacers and are on a budget that perhaps getting a couple silver spacers from Etsy would work. They would be very very affordable and since platinum is stronger, the spacers would take the hit instead of your rings. Which wouldn’t be a big deal since they are easily replaceable. Just a thought!

bellabee16 :  Out of curiousity, have you talked to your jeweler about having your engagement ring repaired yet?  As mentioned, I have the same problem.  I have a feeling they are going to have to replace the entire head and reset the stone in order to fix it but I haven’t taken it in yet.  They already replaced the head once due to a dark fleck on a prong but they didn’t charge me for that repair.  I have a hunch this time it won’t be free.  I only wish this type of potential damage had been stressed more when we purchased the wedding band.
