First off: Im german, please dont judge me for typos 🙂
Today we’ve picked up my wedding band. My Fiance is not a big fan of too much bling so he imagined a more simple ring as my wedding band. The engagement ring he gave me is a nice Tiffany Setting.
All the blingy wedding bands I showed him were “too much” for him. Look-wise, not price wise.
But a few days ago we went to a store and looked at all these rings when all of a sudden he found one ring he liked, despite the bling… It’s funny because I didnt even see the ring. Anyway, we both fell in love with it and went home to get the cash and think about it for 1-2 hours. Then we went back to get it the same day and just today I got it back from resizing. By the way we’ve got 50 % off… Which was another sign for me that our purchase was a good idea :)))
Would you see right away that the two rings are made of different material? To me it looks like they have the same “color”.
Is there anything bad about having different types of material?
Here are my pics, please let me know what you think (and yes, that’s totally my FI’s booty in the background):
Please excuse the messed up nailpolish!
I have to confess that I kept both rings on for the rest of our shopping tour… thru the super market… I know you love the meat in the background 😉

@heavenslight: Not sure… But I’ve heard people saying that they would never mix platin with white gold or yellow gold. I get the yellow gold, but Im not sure about the white gold. To me the platin ring looks just like the e-ring. But I want to be sure and I have time until june 10th to make up my mind about the wedding band
Do you mind sharing your set?

Yeah, the colours look very similar to each other. Gorgeous set!

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.

@akirasan: Thank you!
@womanofsubstance: & @FutureMrsJohnson_: Thank you, Ladies! Hmm, so would you still wear them together? And maybe find a thin band to put in between? Or just take the scratches and get them polished or whatever you call it?
I would hate to have to replace my blessed original wb by some new band because my original one is totally ruined from my platin ring 🙁

@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.

@2013septemberbride: You should definitely try your luck 🙂 Like I said, my Fiance was against a blingy wband and just 10 min ago he told me again how much he loves the ring we ended up buying :))
@Westwood: Great idea!!! I didnt know about the color fading/platinum gray patina. But I was thinking once we have a baby I probably wont wear my e-ring that much anymore. I think it will be a pain in the a**. Are you still wearing both bands alllll the time?

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).
