My fiance and I recently picked out our wedding bands and chose simple rose gold bands. We both have very pale, pinkish Scandinavian complexions, so the color works best for us, and we wanted the simplicity of plain bands so that they could be worn anywhere forever.
We also picked out the engagement ring together (replacing the proposal stand-in) on the same ring store trip. The model ring was in white gold, so at first we thought we would want it made in rose gold to match… but we can’t get over how beautiful and sparkly clean the diamonds look next to white gold!
Considering getting the e-ring in white gold and my wedding band in rose gold. They will be worn nestled together after the wedding.
What do you think? Has anyone else done this? Pictures and opinions, please!

This is the e-ring in white gold shown with my chosen wedding band style.
**Note that the band is shown here in yellow gold, but I’m ordering it in rose gold**, which is much more cool-tone.
Just to give a better idea of what we’re talking about. Apologies for intense jewelry store lighting which makes diamonds impossible to photograph but highlights every wrinkle and hair on my fingers! Eep!

Looks great to me. As long as you love it, that’s all that matters. People will always find something to roll their eyes on. Pick a wedding band for you, not for them 🙂 Hugs Bee

I think white and rose gold look stunning together, that ering is beautiful and I think it’d look awesome with a rose gold band. I vote you go for it!
I have a mixed metal stack and I adore it,

I personally love mixing metals and am planning on getting a rose gold band with my white gold band. I’m even going a step beyond that and getting a scalloped, mismatched style for the wedding band. I think anymore it’s all about preference and matching isn’t necessary.

It’s what you want – no style will stay “in” forever. I work with lots of ladies who got married in the 80s and 90s, and they wear yellow gold rings which are very much the styles of those eras. Those who got married in the 2000s are all wearing white metals. Now, rose gold is a style. Get what you like, and since it’s your wedding band, the vagaries of future jewelry styles won’t apply to it.

I adore mixed metals! My e-ring is white gold and my band is rose gold. I can’t wait to be able to wear them both!

I am doing the same set too if that makes you feel better. White gold engagement ring and yellow gold wedding band to match my FI’s. We are traditional that way lol

I like mixed metals! But another option to consider would be having the band itself be rose gold and the basket/prongs of the ring in white gold to make the stones pop. That’s what I did for mine 🙂

I personally would want all my metals the same – but I like everything matching. I love rose gold, so would likely make the set in rose gold
