    scatthecat :  I would prefer it if it were all white gold or all rose gold to be honest. However, I’m a huge fan of mixing metals by having your band be a different color. Can you get the e-ring in all white gold and get your wedding band in rose gold? That’s what I did and I adore it and get compliments all the time.

    My original ring is two toned and I love it. I went with a white gold band that has cognac diamonds in it.

    I dont have a halo, but my setting is rose gold on the band, and white gold for the basket. I absolutely love it!!!

    I think it is still pretty classic, but a little bit unique and it is not super obvious at first glance that the metals are different (although itwill be slighly more obvious becuase of your halo).

    I’m also a huge fan of mixing metals! 👍But keeping the ring all white gold would allow you to choose over the years if you want to mix or not.

    I would rather keep it white gold and then add a rose gold band, for some reason I think the LB ring looks trendy.

    My morganite is set in a rose gold head on a white gold with pave diamond band.  I love the mix of metals.

    I personally love two tone, but I’m biased.  My set is actually three toned with my stacking band and has three diamond colours (white, pink and yellow).  I like colour and I think the different tones will make your set unique.

    I don’t love it.  I liked mixed metals and I mix different metal rings in a stack but not in the same ring.  i have a yellow gold halo and I don’t think it makes my diamond look any less white.

    Agreed with poster above. Mixing metals when it comes to a stack, love it! But all in the same ring, not my personal preference. But then again, it is your ring not mine! Do what you love 🙂

    scatthecat :  If two-tone is classic enough for Tiffany’s, do you really have to ask if it’s classic enough? 😉

    Don’t worry about what someone else might think, and get what you want. You’re right that the reason that this style of two-tone ring exists (where the head is in a white metal and the band is in a different colored metal) is because being surrounded by the white metal makes the diamonds look whiter.

    If you’re unsure about a two-tone ring, but like the look of mixed metals, do different metals for your engagement ring and wedding band like PP said. Here’s what I’m doing:

    My ring is two tone, white gold around the diamonds and a yellow gold band to match my wedding band.

    If you love the ring, go for it!
