So I have a yellow gold and garnet RHR that is from my parents. It’s a family tradition, and I haven’t had it off my hand in 12 years. I look at my hands and think maybe it would be weird if my Ering wasn’t yellow gold as well. I don’t have a preference for white or yellow gold and I’m lucky that either works for my skin tone.
Do you bees think my ERing should also be yellow gold to match?
Anyone wear a RHR ring that doesn’t match their Ering?
And a pic of me RHR for good measure:

I don’t think it matters at all. Most of my rings are white toned metals (mostly silver) because that is what I like best with my skin tone, and also because I often react to gold below 18K. But, I do have a rose gold band that I mix with my white rings, as well as a yellow gold anniversary band that I mix in, too. I think the different metal tones are very pretty together. (My original ERing is yellow gold, and my original wedding band is a mix of white and yellow gold. Now, I wear an anniversary ring my husband gave me as part of my “wedding set”.)
The main thing that matters is how YOU feel. It’s a very personal decision. If it will bother you to look down at your hands and see different colors of metal, then you may want to go with yellow gold for your ERing and wedding set. If it doesn’t bother you, then I think white metals would be very pretty with your sentimental and special RHR. You could also find an ERing and/or wedding ring setting that mixes white and yellow gold. There are some very pretty ones out there.
Maybe the best way to find out how you feel is to get some cheaper rings in silver or white-toned metal and wear them on your left hand. That way, you will be able to know if having two different metal colors will bother you.
Love your RHR, by the way! It’s very pretty, and I love how sentimental and special it is.

I love yellow gold and rose gold and often wear a mix of both -even on same hand. I think they are lovely together. People today mix metals without a thought. White and rose or all three golds can be found in the same piece of jewelry. It is not like in my mother’s generation for sure. She worried about having her gold matched the metal hardware on her purse and belt! So silly 🙂

I wore all yellow gold before I got my platinum ering. I must admit though, I have now got rid of all my yellow gold jewellery, because once I had my ering I found I just preferred the look. Now I tend to wear white toned metals.
Ultimately it’s up to you. I like to match, but that’s just me. Other people I know wear what ever takes their fancy on a daily basis.

Other than my platinum engagement ring, I only wear yellow gold because it is my general preference. I wear a yellow gold and diamond ring on my right hand, right along with my platinum engagement ring. I’m considering getting a yellow gold wedding band to sit with my engagement ring. I think mixed metals look really nice together.
All that being said, you should choose whatever you prefer for your engagement ring. It will look great!
