platinum e ring, white gold wedding ring???? help!
Posted 03 March 2008 - 11:23 AM
anyway, i bought it in white gold.... and my e ring is platinum. The sales guy told us that there isn't an issue with the two different metals being next to each other. and that they both have to be "refinished" but just in different ways.
however, I've heard from other jewelers that it's not good to put the different metals next to each other because the white gold with scratch the crap out of the platinum. I told this to the sales guy at Jareds and he said that they tell you this in an effort to sell you a higher cost ring, and that it realy doesn't matter.
So we bought the white gold ring. We can always change it to platinum if we want to.
Anyway, does any one know what the truth is? Does it matter, or is it really just a sales tactic to get you to buy platium again?

So I'm not sure how you decide which is best. For me it was that I prefer a lighter weight ring. I know some people who like heavy. I think jewelers push platiunum as far superior because they make more commission.
Palladium sounded great to me, but wasn't available for my setting. For a men's ring I like tungsten.
