    I voted but there’s no pic. I love white gold with rose gold and plan on having my wedding band be braided with both

    I love mixing metals, just make sure they are the same carat gold so they don’t wear against each other.

    I recently went through the same experience.  I really wanted my engagement ring to be rose gold, but then I was worried about it being “trendy” I ended up getting rose gold and I am madly in love with it.  I plan on getting a white gold wedding band because I think rose gold and white gold compliment eachother really well.  I don’t think you should worry about rose gold being trendy either, if you love it now you will always love it.  My mom says she still loves her bad 80’s bridesmaids dresses she chose, even though now they are way out of style.  Don’t be worried about what others think, just go with what you like!

    I gave it a look see, mixing white with rose and I didn’t care for it, but i think skin tone makes a difference with that.

    I love mixing!!  Just keep in mind that the white gold will wear down the rose gold faster than it would another white gold ring beside it.  So you may want to consider a tiny rose gold spacer.

    I LOVE rose gold, but I do think it’s majorly trendy right now.  I have a lovely rose gold ring that I wear on my right hand, and my engagement ring is very traditional. I seriously considered getting my wedding band in rose gold to go with my white gold e-ring, and I’m glad I decided to keep them both white gold.  I think right hand rings are made to satisfy the need for the trend, and it’s safer to keep your wedding set timeless and traditional.

    I would mix them if it looked right with a particular ring. For sure!

    I’d get the engagment ring in whichever color gold you like most. Then I’d get the wedding in the other gold color. I went for matching white gold but really wish I’d done the mismatched thing. Plus I hate how white gold has to be rhodium dipped. I hope you post pics of your choice.

    I wouldn’t mix metals.  My band will be white gold like my e-ring.  It will have garnets instead of diamonds though!

    With regards to colour – YES but I was told you shouldnt because of the different qualities of gold types and diff types will wear against eachother differently – making one wear more quickly than another. If all same – no one wears another down . If that makes sense.
