Hi bees ok question My ring is a 19k white gold Scott Kay designer ring I kept trying on wedding bands that were 18k but the color just seemed off. I figured it was the 1k that made the difference but I went and tried the matching Scott Kay band and the color still seemed off. My ring looks more metal like while the band looks more white..if that makes sense? Do your wedding bands look exactly like your e-ring color wise? Do I make any sense? lol because everyone seems to think I am crazy….

How long have you had your engagement ring? The rhodium plating is probably wearing off. I ended up having my engagement ring replated right after the wedding so the two would be the same color.

I think it is different depending on the person. Some people have more interactions with metals than others.

We had a very similar thread about this just a couple weeks ago! You might be able to get some info from it — t’s right here. Based on what that person said, I am *guessing* that SK uses a palladium alloy. Nickel tends to be more common for white gold. That may be the issue there, with the non-matching bands. But, I believe the 19k SK rings are not plated, and are pretty platinum-like, which could mean they might develop a patina (texturizing of the metal due to lots of tiny scratches) like platinum does, even after a few months.
