Hmm.. never heard that before.

I think it depends on the fit together of the band and e-ring. If it locks perfectly together and doesn’t twist round your finger much, then I don’t see why it would scratch together.

White gold is still durable as it is gold, and I think only the diamond could make a scratch big enough to see. But if your still uncertain I would get another jewellers opinion (one you didn’t purchase from) for their opinion as well.

Just sounds like a ploy to upgrade you to platinum personally..

@HChristina: yes. the platium will wear the gold down over time. platinum is a softer metal than gold, but it is more dense than gold, if that makes sense. my jeweler friend that i’ve talked to have told me this, because i wanted to have a thin gold ring to separate my ering and wedding band (when the time came, as i’m not even engaged, yet…) but they also tell me that it’s not a huge cause for alarm. i don’t think you should be too worried, and maybe talk to a couple jewelers to see what they think. depending on your settings, it might not even be a problem at all. hope that helped!

i would think that you could have the wedding band redipped every so often and that it wouldn’t be a problem but i’m not sure… interesting…

I have heard of this happening, but I have never experienced it before.  I don’t think it is a ploy to get you to spend more.  The only question I would have is how long does this take to happen?
