you can get white gold, but it will wear differently then your e-ring.  platinum would be best

Get white gold and just move the e-ring to the other hand so they arent right next to it.

Have you thought about palladium?

I have a lot of friends who have plat e-rings and white gold bands and you cant tell the difference on a few and others you have to look at them up close to notice.

My e-ring is platinum and my band a plain, white gold ring. I wear them together and they look fine, nobody would notice the difference.

the platinum and the white gold will wear differently over the years, but if you don’t mind then you can still go that route. palladium might be a good option too.

Palladium- they have around the same color and sometimes it’s cheaper than gold- depending on the market.

My wedding band is 2.5mm platinum, classic fit (comfort fit is about 2x the price, even online), size 6, and we paid less than $300 for it by buying online. Check out Amazon (mine was through Amazon but actually from a seller called GoldSpeed) 🙂

Our jeweler quoted us over a thousand for pretty much the same band, and I almost choked on my own spit I was so surprised it would be that expensive. That’s why we bought online.

@pb and j: Agreed! While white gold and platinum will look fine together now, they will definitely wear differently over time and the difference will start to be noticeable. Good call on the palladium recomendations! Sounds like you may have a winner on Etsy! I LOVE that site! 🙂

Palladium is probably fine. I sorta wish that’s what I did. My band is 2.5 mm platinum with an engraved vine pattern (no stones) to match my platinum e-ring. It was $545 for a slim, simple size 4 (an eBay bargain — a similar platinum band at our local jeweler was $700).

I would go with palladium (blue nile has really good prices), as it is often cheaper than white gold, even. 

I have a platinum e-ring and a white gold wedding band.  If you look closely (which no one besides me is ever going to do), you can tell that they are different colors (both are antiques, so the white gold is not plated anymore).  It doesn’t bother me at all!
