I agree that you both don't have to wear the same unless you'd really just prefer it.

 

Honestly though, my ering is platinum and it is equally as scratched as my white gold band. I know it is supposed to be more scratch resistant but...it really hasn't been.

My e-ring is platinum and is pretty scratched on the bottom where i hit it on things. however we are definitely not getting matching type bands so just get what you want and let him get what he wants!!!

Platinum scratches. But it is easily buffed out (unlike white gold, I think). Also, platinum does "fade" - white gold has to be "redipped" every once in a while.

 

I don't think it matters if they are different.

 

He could also consider titanium or tungsten or something like that.

platinum actually scratches more than white gold....my platinum band is pretty scratched up on the bottom

 

if you want something that doesn't scratch at all for him - go with tungten carbide. It is a lot less expensive and won't scratch at all

the problem with tungsten is that, if by some bad luck the finger is crushed, the ring CANNOT be cut off, the finger will have to be......it is a bad thought, but happens.

My ring is platinum and holding up pretty well. My band will be platinum but his will most likely be white gold or Tungsten. He would prefer platinum, but the cost is so much more and he has been known to lose just about every ring he has ever purchased! We have no problems with rings of different metals; it's a personal preference.

As others have said, you two don't have to wear the same metal. You can have your platinum and he can have his white gold in the same style if you want them to be identical. :)

 

Also wanted to say that most ERs are able to cut tungsten rings off. :)

yah platinum is a much softer metal than white gold and therefore scratches way more easily. Depending on the karat of white gold you get, it might have to get re-dipped eventually.

My FI and I will have dif metals as well so I dont think that matters.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
