My mom stacks her “metro rings” and they seem very close if not the same color as her anniversary band which I remember to be f/g

White gold and platinum are different if you’re staring at the two to see if you can notice but I really don’t think you can see anything especially with the pave. White gold wears down into yellow gold and needs to be redipped every so often but platinum will never turn yellowish. If scratched a lot from wear, it will become slightly greyish (like worn silver) but that too can be buffed. None of this matters if your band will have diamonds. Hope this helps.

purpledolphin:  Hi there! I was in a similar position when we were wedding band shopping. My original e-ring was a 3-stone platinum ring, however I very luckily got a solitaire white gold upgrade which complicated things slightly as I had my heart set on either the Tiffany platinum channel-set band or the pave band. So I ended up doing what any indecisive girl does and went ahead and got both bands for either side of my e-ring!

It’s been just over a year of wearing them altogether and even in a job where I’m constantly using my hands/ wearing gloves/ washing hands, they have held up very well. Sure, there are minor scratches on the e-ring but nothing major and I haven’t had to get the e-ring re-dipped or the bands buffed (which Tiffany can do if you take it back to them). There’s not a significant contrast visually between the band colours of the e-ring and wedding bands too.

With regards to diamond colours: one of my very close friends works for Tiffany and has told me the diamonds they select fall in the “D-I” range. The diamonds in my bands are about F/G and whilst I understand it does not sound ideal on paper to have up to I-coloured diamonds against your D-coloured e-ring, the pave diamonds are tiny and would not be tremendously contrasting/glaring anyway.

I hope this helps! My e-ring is away getting resized at the moment, but I can come back and post a picture with them altogether when I get it back 🙂

Remicakes:  White gold doesn’t “wear down into yellow.” White gold is often plated, and when you wear off the plating you are seeing the true color of white gold, which is a buttery/creamy white not the stark chromey rhodium white. If you had an unplated white gold ring, it would not change color over time.

However, gold placed next to platinum will wear down differently than gold placed next to gold. In this case since the e ring is the harder metal it will probably be okay but a gold wedding band next to a platinum e ring can wear out the prongs.

The diamond quality is all wonderful there thatd be no issue, however their white metal of choice for fine jewelry is platinum and that’s not a good idea to pair with a gold ering. The metro pave rings are gold, but very very thin, you could stack a couple? I would search and refine by material on the site.

I wouldn’t worry too much about diamond color.  I have an F color diamond solitaire and I have a pave wedding band from Tiffanys (but no clue as to what color diamonds they are).  I can’t tell a difference in color between my Ering and Wband diamonds (and I’m very color sensitive) so I’d say my Wband diamonds is probably in the D-F range.  I agree with the pp, Tiffany diamonds all tend to be great quality with a higher color range (D-F) so I wouldn’t worry too much about a color discrepancy (unless your solitaire is more on the yellow side).

purpledolphin:  I have a thin gold metro band that I thought would be too thin to wear alone without getting another to stack but it turned out that I really like the single delicate band alone.  And I always get a compliment when I wear it alone too, which surprises me.  It’s all personal preference though and the size/shape of your fingers probably matter too.

I recently bought a Tiffany band (Harmony) to go with my non-Tiffany engagement ring. I actually don’t know that much about specs–the diamond on my e-ring is an heirloom from my fiance’s family and I haven’t actually looked into it, but I didn’t notice a big difference in color. My ring is platinum, though, so I was  just more interested in making sure the metals matched. I’m not too familiar with the platinum/white gold combo, but I guess the best way would probably just be to try some on! Hah, sorry this is not super helpful. Anyway, I do have a pic of my set!

I was strongly advised not to put platinum next to gold. platinum will supposedly get scratched to hell if you do that And many people told me it will ruin my platinum e-ring. Hope this helps
