This is the opposite of what you said with a rose gold ering and platinum band! These are not my rings but I really loved the two together!

When we were designing my rings and considering metals our jeweler took the time to explain/warn us that gold and platinum can’t be worn next to each other. If I wanted gold for one, platinum would be a poor choice for the other.

Since you don’t have the platinum band yet maybe consider white gold instead. The difference in color/shine between white gold and platinum is very small and the two gold rings will have no adverse effect on one another.

I have a platinum setting engagement ring and rose gold wedding band.  I’ve only worn the combo for 2 years but so far so good so yes I think they can handle being worn next to each other “for a bit”!

Platinum is stronger than rose gold but it’s softer, so rose gold will scratch the platinum just as much as platinum will scratch rose gold. The difference is when gold is scratched, the metal is worn away. When platinum is scratched, the metal is displaced but its not worn away.

I had the same dilemma. My ering and matching band are 14k rose gold, but I wanted a platinum wedding band to match DH ring. I found a platinum band with rose gold inlay and edges. I can wear both bands without worrying about the metals damaging one another. 

Maybe you could get a rose gold band and solder it to a thin platinum spacer for a similar effect. You wouldn’t have to worry about your platinum ering damaging the rose gold band.
