The titanium will probably damage the gold, ask a jeweller.  I would worry too much about this. 

I’m getting a tungsten band for everday use, to sit alone as a wedding band but I’ve been told not to put the gold ring near it. 
Even gold rings can scratch each other.

Your best bet is to ask a jeweller.  Tell him your ring karat and ask him about titanium.  

Gold is soft regardless and I personally would worry too much.  I’ve asked about tungsten in the past (there is a thread floating around started by me) and the ladies advised against it.  Titanium is softer than tungsten but I still don’t think it would be that good incase it damages your lovely ring. 

When I recently began looking into titanium I too found the color is similar to white gold, it’s light in weight and a fraction of the price of gold. 

I hope we’ll get a reply from some ladies who actually have titanium rings.

I can’t help with this, but I had to say that I adore that you’re getting rings for when you’re old!!  That is the cutest/sweetest thing ever!!  =D

@lergx6: Haha, thanks for the clarification.  I was a little worried about the titanium myself when I did some research for you. 

They are quite popular these days so I just hope that medical staff know how to handle them when a given situation arises.

I really want to know the answer to this question of “will they scratch each other.”

I’m not sure how knowledgeble that “article” from elsewhere online is, everyone is just lik, “umm…. ask a jewler. but here’s what *I* think.” Plus, it’s from a website called “goldweddingrings,” so of course they are going to try and get you to buy gold!

Unless someone answers this soon, maybe I will just start another thread that’s more specific, since there doesn’t seem to be one solely devoted to that question…

Hey! That is where I am getting me work ring from! Well, them or these guys. They have a lot of really similar stuff. It just depends on which seller I end up liking the design from. So, I gotta say, I like your choice in rings! Also, I agree with PP’s that the titanium is so much stronger than the gold it could damage the gold ring. But I think that would be so far of a stretch I would be surprised if it actually happened.
