My future fiance (a modern engagement story!) and I picked out an oval diamond that will be in a diamond halo setting. The band of the e-ring won’t have diamonds on it. This is the original render, we’d like to make a few changes.
However, I’m not sure what kind of metal to use for the setting, originally I was thinking platinum but I love the idea of having a simple gold band as a wedding ring which I don’t think would go well with an all platinum e-ring. Does anyone have a ring where the diamond (with or without halo) is set in platinum but the rest of the band is gold? Or rose gold maybe? Or, do you have a platinum e-ring that you wear with a gold band? Please share your photos!!!

I believe that many gold rings have platinum settings because platinum is better for the actual setting part of the ring. I don’t have any pics but my mom has a 3 stone yellow gold ring with platinum prongs and I really like how it looks. As for straight up gold v. platinum you should do a google search or search in the bar to the top left of the screen, there have been lots of discussions of the benefits of each. (to sum it up: gold = more cost effective, can be shinier, comes in yellow and rose colors, doesn’t scratch as easily but needs to be replated frequently, platinum = more expensive, scratches more easily, but never has to be replated).
I think most people would tell you that mixing a platinum e-ring with a gold wedding band is a bad idea because platinum is harder than gold and the rings rubbing against each other can damage the gold band.
