My best friend has a matched set that features both white and yellow gold on both the e-ring and the wedding band. Perhaps you could consider getting two identical wedding bands — one to wear on each side of your e-ring — that are both yellow and white gold?

Yay. I like mixed metals if done right, but I do like an eclectic look!

I find lots of older generations do not mix. It used to be you “had” to match it all, including to your purse, and shoes and purses “had” to match. That is really not the case anymore at all. Mixing metals is quite the thing to do now! Lots of people stack may different metals, colour stones, designs, etc as well.

I love the look of mixed gold colors. I am not keen on mixed metals (platinum with gold for example) due to stratching. You could even add a rose gold one later. Mrs.Trailmix has a LOVELY mixed gold set! It’s seriously to die for.

No, mixed metals isn’t bad.  It’s a cool look, I like the contrast.  As long as they have the same karat weight (um, is that the right term?), you should be good.
