The metal should be the same as your engagement ring

mine is platinum. I heard that if you go with white gold that you have to get it dipped again because the yellow gold shows through after awhile.

It does not have to be the same. You can mix metals, so don’t feel stuck to one kind just because one ring is WG or Plat.

The only thing is that they wear differently, so years down the road you may notice a difference in color or wear and they might not look the same if they are different metals.

Most jewellers (not mall stores) can do any setting in either metal once you find a setting you like.

@nikix:  I think it shows through with normal wear. My husband washes his hands a lot at his job as well. He has a platinum ring. I think i would just prefer not the hastle of having to bring my ring back to the jewlers.

You can mix metals.  They won’t look the exact same color, because platinum has a grey undertone, un-plated white gold has a yellow undertone, and a rhodium plated white gold ring is more white looking than platinum.  

A lot of people will say you can’t mix them, because they’ll scratch each other. But any rings you get that are worn on the same finger will scratch each other.  

The only thing to remember is if you get gold, keep your hands out of bleach, because it will pit and weaken the gold.

@nikix:  I don’t think so.  I love the look of mixed metals. I think it would look lovely.
