Platinum E-ring...Platinum wedding band???

Recommended Posts

My engagement ring is platinum. Do I have to get a platinum wedding band too? Pros & conshuh.gif

 

My ring is a solitaire with a princess cut diamond & a thicker band. I want to get a diamond or half diamond band. Any suggestions??

my friend has one platinum & one white gold band. They are even sodered (sp?) together. I think it might make it a little more difficult to maintain. White gold needs rhodium dipping & platinum needs polishing.

 

update- I learned she gets them both rhodium dipped.

It really depends on what type of ring you are getting. If you can see a lot of the metal on the wedding band, you may want to get platinum. Although white gold and platinum will look very close in color initially, they oxidize differently, with platinum being a bit more gray, and white gold looking either whiter or even golder. I was hoping to be able to get wg, but when I tried on white gold eternity bands, I could tell the difference in color, and it bothered me, so I went the expensive route.

I don't think there are any rules on your wedding band having to match. I have a platinum e-ring and I am planning on getting 2 wedding bands for either side of the ring, potentially platinum with colored stones ... I think if you want to contrast your ring with yellow gold that could look really nice! My advice is to go shopping to see what looks nice with your e-ring... and make sure to try lots of different styles!

my e-ring is platinum and my band is white gold w/ like 7 little, bitty diamonds across the top. I like having them separate...and if you go w/ the different metals I would reccomend it, mostly due to the upkeep issues Morgan mentioned.

 

But honestly, if you're worried about looks, don't be. Not once has anyone looked at my rings and wondered/guessed that they might be different. Now if you take them off and handle them, the weight is different...but how often will people really be doing that?! ;-)

If you are having diamonds in the wedding band you could probably get away with white gold. You should try them on together, and see if you can see a difference. Platinum will change color after awhile and the white old may look more yellow once it is time to get it dipped so there may be a more noticeable difference at that point. You could always wear your engagement ring on your right hand and the band on the left so it really wouldn't matter since they won't be next to each other.

I have a plat ering and a white gold eternity band. I was honestly just too cheap to spend the money on plat when it came to my band. I thought it might bother me, but it doesn't. I think you're probably fine.

Thanks for all the good tips!! I'll probably try on both the white gold and platinum like everyone suggested. Since I'd like to have half of it diamonds you probably won't even tell. I'll wait & see!

Sounds like my ring!

 

I tried on both white gold and platinum bands with mine and you cannot really tell (except for price tag).

I think they wear differently, but that may be it.

 

I have not bought mine yet, but I will let you know how it goes :)

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
