Does anyone know if it matters if i have different materials for my e-ring and wedding band?
I am thinking about Palladium because then I won’t have to get it redipped (my e-ring is already due for a new rhodium coating). Would the difference have any effect on my rings?

Hello! Sorry to tell you this, but if you are planning to wear them together, over time the metals will wear at a different rate, as gold is so much softer than palladium. I don’t know if that was the answer you were hoping for, but I hope it helps.

I asked the jeweler and she said that it shouldn’t matter if i get 2 different metals.
Sure they will wear differently, but i will have to get my white gold ring redipped occasionally anyways (seems easier to me to just have to worry about 1 ring being redipped rather than 2 – especially because my e-ring is covered under warranty for that, the wedding band wouldn’t be)
I am curious though if anyone has these 2 different metals for their e-ring and wedding band. can you notice a colour difference between the two? There is just too much information on the internet, it’s getting confusing!

I know this is probably a little late, but what did you decide on for your band? My e-ring is 14k palladium white gold with an unplated 14k white gold bezel and I honestly can’t tell the difference between the two metals. It isn’t as bright as plated white gold, but I don’t need to ever have it dipped.

I have a plantinum engagement ring and a white gold wedding band. I would have preferred to have them match, but both are vintage, so when I fell in love with a wedding band it’s not like I could order it in a different metal. Because it’s vintage, my wedding band is already as yellow as it’s going to get so I can tell you honestly that while my two rings are different colors, not a single person on this planet would ever notice except me. By that I mean, if you look really closely when the rings are off my hand, you can tell, but no one would ever look at it like that. When they are on my hand you can’t tell.
That said, my wedding band has worn a lot over it’s long life. It has millgrain edging, and there are definitely spots where the millgrain almost smooth – all of this wear happened before I got it. That wouldn’t be happening if my ring was a harder metal. I guess, however, this won’t matter to you since you already have the white gold band.

I’ve been told they’ll have a bad effect on each other. Not sure how bad…
