My wedding band is lose from the e-ring and has now rubbed a thin line across the side of the e-ring. I should describe this better… it has rubbed an indention into it and has pushed the metal over the diamonds lining the band on the e-ring.
Just wondering if anyone has experienced this. I have only worn the two rings together for 2 months now and can’t believe this has already happened.
We are thinking about possible options. I don’t want the two bands as one because I like to wear just the wedding band alone.

What kind of metal is it? Are they different metals? I’ve heard if you wear gold and platinum together the platinum is harder so it can do that to the gold.

They are both platinum. It’s just really disappointing because they are both from Tiffany’s and we spent so much on both rings. I think the problem is the setting on the e-ring causes the band not to sit flush against it. It is rubbing right where the prong meets the band

I would go back to the store and see what they can do for you. That should not have happened.

Yeesh! You’re making me nervous. My e-ring is platinum (also from Tiffany’s), and my wedding ring is platinum from Brilliant Earth. They are not going to sit flush, and I will pretty much freak out if my wedding ring starts wearing down the prongs of the engagement ring!

Mine are similar, and I was pretty sad when I noticed the changes. I don’t want them soldered, and I like wearing them together (so I won’t just leave my e ring for special occasions), so I’ve just decided to let it wear a little and I’ll get it fixed in a few years.
The only thing I’ve done that maybe you could do is to minimize the time you wear them together. I always wear both rings out of the house, but at home I take off my e ring to sleep (when I assume a lot of the wearing down occurs) and when I cook, wash my hands, or shower. In my head that cuts the time they’re hitting each other in half…

@mrsbeth- Good idea about reducing the time worn together.
@nortiake- I am going to go to Tiffany’s soon and see what can be done. My set is the legacy ring and the eternity legacy band. So they were meant to go together and I just can’t believe this has happened!

It would be because of the platinum. Platinum scratches, knicks, and loses it’s shine quicker than gold.
I had friends that got platinum bands and within just a few months they became really damaged.
Generally gold is “softer” but these days it’s mixed with things to make it harder and last longer.
If you got any kinda insurance through the store I’d see what could be done.
I know for me, after seeing my friends rings and hearing the cost of them I’ve decided to stay with White Gold.
