I always wanted white gold/platinum engagement rings and wedding band. My FH was aware of that. He proposed with a beautiful yellow gold solitaire that is a family heirlom. He told me I could choose any setting I wanted and have the stone re-set. His family was OK with that as well. However, this ring has grown on me (I really love it!), and I just can’t destroy this beautiful ring that has been in his family for almost 100 years. Now we are shopping for wedding rings and I have fallen in love with a platinum eternity band that sparkles like crazy. Would it be too odd to wear the two rings together? Thanks in advance.

I think you should try on some white gold or plat and see if you like it, are you seeing this eternity band in person or online?
Mixed metals are worn by lots of ladies. I personally prefer to wear three rings if I’m mixing, or five, with either 2 gold one white, or vice versa, or 3 gold 2 white or vice versa. I like how it mixes. You could always add a nice simple band, as a third band, to mix it up even more!

MrsTCC : it wouldn’t be odd at all! Mixed metals is very popular. I am currently just wearing my ering (white gold) and have a matching wedding band which I’m not wearing yet.
Once we’re married, I plan to mix rose gold and possibly yellow gold too. I’ll mix them up with my mood

MrsTCC : No way, that is not odd at all. I think the mixed metals is as unique as it is beautiful.
My e-ring is white gold and my wedding band is 18kt rose gold. Here is a pic of what it will look like once we are married. Hurry up next year! (smile)
I think the contrast is gorgeous~!

Love the look of mixed metals! I already have like 10 rings picked out on amazon (like 20$ rings) to mix and match with my ering. There are rope bands, bubble and breathe bands, hammered metal metals bands etc. There are so many variations of white gold, rose gold and yellow gold I love it! They look beautiful and since my ering is a simple solitaire the bands help frame my ering and I don’t think take away from it at all! Experiment with cheap mixed metal bands until you find your favorite style and want to invest in a forever style!

So I dunno if mine counts but my engagement ring itself is mixed metal. We had my set custom made. The basket is 18 k white gold and the bands are 18 k yellow. My wedding band is just a thin, curved yellow gold ring.

I think mix metals are really pretty an unique. My only concern is a platinum band. My original ering, When we got engaged 15 years ago Was white gold. I wanted a platinum band. My jeweler told me if I wanted that I would need a thin spacer band to prevent the platinum from wearing down my ERing. I am only saying this because you stated that your ERing is a family heirloom. I would hate to see it damaged. I would ask a jeweler if you can do this. Or if you have to get a spacer or solder them together to prevent them from rubbing. Please post a pic of this ring I am dying to see it!!!! I hope I didn’t offend you by my comments, I would hate to see you ruin a 100 year old family heirloom
