Just FYI, I asked my jeweler about mixing metals (after posting a thread here on the Bee) and she told me that long term, platinum will wear away at gold if they are next to each other/consistently rubbing. This would be a particular problem if you have stones on your wedding band since the prongs are prone to being worn away anyways.

My ering is platinum and my wedding band is 14k white gold. I have a nickel allergy, which is why my ering is platinum. Found a jeweler had nickel free white gold for my wedding band (which is three interlocking thin rings). There is a slight contrast in color, but nothing drastic. No one has ever said anything to me about the metals being different, well except my DH. I like that they don’t exactly match, I think it makes them both stand out.

I’ve heard concerns about mixing platinum and white gold, but aunt has had her white gold e-ring and platinum band for decades with no issue, so I jumped on that train as well.  Here’s my platinum e-ring and white gold band.

knotyet :  true! when you look at the inside of my palm, since both are about 3/4 eternity, you can tell a slight difference from where the platinum has started to get a patina and the white gold is still fresh and slightly warmer, but no one will be staring at my palm, so who cares! haha

Top band is white gold, bottom platinum. I never polished/re-dipped either of them. You can really see how warm whitegild became with time
