I’ve been married for a few years now (used to come to this site AAAALLLL the time when I was planning our wedding, and then life got busy after we got married…), but I lost my bridal set last year and we’re looking into getting me a new set. Has anyone ever worn platinum and yellow gold rings together? Is it true that one wears the other down, or is that a complete myth? I do plan on wearing the set all the time except when I take my shower and go to bed. Thanks in advance!!!

I don’t think it is a myth but I think the extent they wear down seems to differ quite wildly from person to person.
Even jewellers will tell you different things – I was looking at getting a platinum/rose gold set (still undecided) and one jeweller said I will need to replace the RG ring after a few years, whereas another one said it would likely be completely fine forever and you’d only notice minor wear&tear up close. So the jury is still out lol.

Perhaps you could have the set soldered together if you plan on wearing both all the time. That way, there would be no rubbing/friction to cause the wear on the gold ring.

I have a white gold diamond ring with a yellow gold wedding band. It’s not platinum but I haven’t noticed anything with mine. 14k also tends to be stronger then 18k. That wouldn’t be a bad route to go for extra durability.

I’m not sure about rubbing over time and with frequency of wear, as this isnt my primary stack, but sometimes I wear these too together X

How long do you plan to live? If you’re living to 150 there *might* be a problem depending on the thickness of the bands. If you’re worried about it, get a spacer.

My wedding ring is platinum. I stack it with rose and yellow gold and have had no problems. It’s not as big a deal as people make it out to be. Platinum is softer than gold. Gold will rub against it and leave scratches over time. That will happen no matter what metals you mix or wear. It’s normal wear and tear. Platinum in particular doesn’t wear down or lose metal, so scratches can be buffed out and it will look like new.

Well Queen Elizabeth does it so if it’s good enough for her I don’t see why not!
