I love your set! The bands complement the stone perfectly, it’s gorgeous! I think your Fiance will love wearing platinum; it’s convenient not having to take it to the jeweler to get dipped every 6-12 months. If you haven’t done this already, I would check with the jeweler about the alloy mixed with the platinum in his ring, because that drastically affects how it wears over time. 10% iridium, or even better 5% ruthenium, are both good options for everyday wear (5% ruthenium is what Tiffany rings are made with). 5% iridium is way too soft to wear as a ring and will show nicks and scratches quickly. 

Your FI’s ring seems a bit thick to me. However, your Fiance seems like to “statement” pieces because his watch face is on the larger side. If he prefers chunky/statement jewelry and it’s comfortable, I think it’s perfect!

I love them! I love the weight of platinum, and it’s so much easier to care for. Your band looks made for your ring, and really completes the look. Love them.

Your set looks so gorgeous on you! We’re newly engaged (less than a month), so still on hunting for the perfect wedding bands. I really love my platinum engagement ring (halo + plain shank) because I can’t stand having too many stones personally – I wash my hands A LOT! I want my fiance to have a platinum band too because he’s one of the most practical guys I know – He says he wants a tungsten band… I think your fiance will enjoy wearing his platinum band, I don’t think the wedding bands (metal) should be matched anyway. I think it’s the best if you both pick whichever you like the most!
