My fiance and I just ordered our wedding rings (hooray!), and I just wanted to get your opinions about something.
I really, really don’t like yellow gold on me. When I suggested we both go with white gold to match, he was hesitant, and finally admitted that he’d feel much better with yellow gold. I want him to be happy above all else, so we decided to get matching styles (plain half-round, mine is 6mm and his is 8mm) to have some consistency.
Do you think it’s going to seem odd if I’m wearing a white gold band and he’s wearing a yellow one? I’ve seen many couples do the different metal route (white gold for her, tungsten for him) but the colors are usually similar enough for the rings to look like a pair. Is there a hard-and-fast color rule that we’re breaking?

You can wear any kind of rings you want! They don’t have to match (almost no one gets matching wedding bands anymore).

nope go for it! My FH and I are doing it the same way! I want Palladium and he wants classic yellow gold. I don’t think anyone will ever notice/care.

It depends on what you want. I wanted our rings to match. So I got a yellow gold ring and he got a tungston multi tone ring. White gold color with yellow gold on it. It would probably really match if he got a two tone ring white gold/yellow gold, but if you guys already bought the rings then I don’t know.

I wouldn’t even give this a second thought. Get the ring each of you likes. Don’t worry about the color of the metal.

Whew – good to hear! I was concerned that people would see us together, notice the different colored rings, and wonder if we’re actually married to EACH OTHER. Silly, I know, but on my mind nonetheless!

@thefuturemrsgibbs: I loved the idea of a two-tone ring for him, and worked hard on trying to convince him! Alas, he just really, really wanted a plain yellow gold band. In a way, it’s nice to see him be sure about things like that. The last thing I would want would be for him to throw the towel in and say, “Okay, fine, whatever you think is best” when he really wants something different.

No one is ever going to put them side by side and compare them. You’ll be fine ;o)

I agree with the other posters! I think you’ll be absolutely fine!

Nope, non-matching rings are ok! My husbands is platinum and yellow gold, and my wedding ring is rose gold and my engagement ring is white gold! So nothing really matches, and it works for us, because that’s what WE like! Go with what you like, because you will have to wear it forever.

Matching rings are not really the common thing anymore. I think it is fine that you each get exactly what you want!
