    Beautiful rings!

    To answer your question:

    My only concerns would be the platinum would wear down the gold and both will eventually take on different hues.

    @womanofsubstance:  +1 I believe platinum is “harder” than white gold and can/will scratch the other ring over time. 

    Gorgeous set!!

    @SoonToBee2013:  I think your E ring and mine are twins! I love your set! My Fiance doesn’t like blingy wedding bands but I’ll show him yours to try to change his mind!!

    I’d probably just have them soldered together to prevent any rubbing. They may look slightly different over time since platinum gets more of a gray patina, and white gold can fade to more of a yellow/warm color.

    If you wear a plain thin band between the two, you’ve solved the issue of wearing down the gold on your wedding band. The difference in colour can be managed by rhodium plating your band when it yellows and having your e-ring polished. 

    Then again, you could always consider wearing your e-ring on your right hand. 

    Whatever you decide, I do think your rings look beautiful together!

    I think the color difference once both rings are worn will be quite pretty. I’ve ordered my e-ring in 18k white gold, and my wedding band will be in platinum. Since my e-ring has a pave basket and I don’t want the platinum band rubbing on it, I’ll be ordering a 1mm 18k gold band from Etsy to use as a spacer. I was advised that it’s not necessary as my ring has a lifetime warranty from the designer, but I’d like to take steps to prevent any possible damage (and get a third ring, lol).
