Although I’m not “officially” engaged yet, we’ve both been looking at rings. He’s currently deployed until December, so the plan is to get engaged then, legally married in May 2013, and have the actually ceremony the following May.
Anywho… I’m not completely partial to just white gold or yellow gold, but would like to have a combination of the two. Does anyone else have a two-tone e-ring/bridal set?
The one I was looking at has yellow diamonds in the yellow gold setting. I like it, he likes it…. but my mother HATES it.
I’m sure I’d get a ton of mixed reviews from everyone, but I’ve never been the “typical, blend in with the crowd” type of person.
This is the ring I was looking at for him… again, we both love the ring, so I guess this will be it.
Any thoughts ladies?

If you like it then thats all you need to know. I think it is very modern yet kinda has a antique feeling to it at the same time….I am not a fan of mixing golds but honestly it is yours and you have to look at it for the rest of your life. It is a nice ring tho 🙂

Personally, I don’t love mixed golds, but I’ve seen a lot of mixed gold sets on other ladies and it looks nice on them. If you love it, you should do it 🙂 Rings are so personal, so don’t let someone else make the choice if you know what you want.

I love the two tone look…but I love yellow gold more so I personally am going to get all yellow. The nice thing about getting a two-tone ring is it will go with any other jewelry you have! If you like it then definately go for it. You are the one that will be wearing it everyday.

My old e-ring before my current one was 2 tone rose and white gold. I loved the look and got so many compliments on how different it was. I wear my white gold e-ring now with a rose gold and diamond band.

My ring is palladium and yellow gold. The wedding band will be my grandmother’s yellow gold band. I love mixing metals and I get tons of compliments on it.
Also, your mom does not get input on this. This is YOUR ring. She can and probably will, give you merry hell over your wedding dress but your engagement ring is not her business.

I actually really like it! Like PPs have said, I’m not usually big on mixing golds, but something about that ring in particular really hits a high note with me. It’s beautiful! And you seem to love it, so that’s what matters 🙂
