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.
