🌟 Let’s hear it from Nancy 🌟
So, Nancy has her Three Stone engagement ring in 14K and her wedding ring in 18K. Her wedding ring sits higher than her engagement ring.
The only trouble Nancy has is that her 14K Three Stone bang with her 18k wedding ring. This is the only reason she feels a bit concerned wearing them together.
🌟 Let’s hear it from Rachel 🌟
When I asked Rachel how she felt about wearing these together, she had a brief laughing moment. See, Rachel is quite a workaholic and she has been married for 2 years.
For three years now, she has been wearing her 14K engagement ring and 18K wedding band together! And she says she didn’t even notice the difference between the karats until recently!
🌟 What's the difference? 🌟
Why is gold even mixed up with other metals? That's because gold is too soft to be used as a metal for a ring on its own. 😕 Adding metals to gold makes it more durable and long lasting! Just as adding the right consistency of butter turns cookie dough into cookies!
18k gold is definitely more pure but 14k is more durable. As 18k gold tends to have more of a "golden" color, in comparison to 14k gold.
🌟 Should you wear them together? 🌟
Take it from Nancy and Rachel, it totally depends on your girl that if she would mind these minor issues or not. 😊
Most people feel that there might be a little color difference if you wear both of these gold's together. 😕
However, most people don't have a problem with it! If your girl notices little things in everything, then this might not be something that she would like.
Other than that, 18k gold may tarnish while 14k gold lasts a little longer. It also depends on which has the higher stone setting.
The 14k ring might scratch the 18k one and make it's original lifetime even more shorter! 😕
And like I said, it really depends on your girl! If she is very peculiar about her jewelry, then perhaps wearing them together is not a good option!
