Personally, I don't think it matters. My wedder is gold and the rest of my jewellery on the day is silver. I hadn't actually thought of this, but oh well!

I have a white gold ring and I'll be wearing white gold (or silver) if any at all.

Personally, I can't stand it when people mix yellow gold and white gold together. All my BMs wear silver or white gold anyway so that worked out well.

I don't see how it matters. Your ring is on your finger, the rest of your jewellery is up on your head (unless you wear a bracelet too), they're not sitting right next to each other.

Having said that, my e-ring is 2 tone anyway, so I could have got a yellow gold or platinum ring to match it, but I chose yellow gold.

Don't stress me out people! *runs around pulling her hair out* I never thought of this, but FH has bought me a beautiful sterling silver and pearl necklace as my wedding present to wear on the day, and I WILL wear it with my yellow gold ring! hehe

Just a personal choice. I don't particulalry like the look of them together.

But - you shouldn't stress about it because if you like the look then that's what you should go for. :)

Hun, don't worry. I am sure your jewelry will look beautiful. The way I see it is, everyone is going to have differing opinions, and as long as you are happy with what you chose - that is all that matters =) I haven't even thought of jewelry yet EEK so I have no idea!

I'm wearing both.

My wedder is yellow gold, my e ring is yellow gold, my diamond studs are white gold, and my necklace is this.

i don't think it really matters that much. Wear whatever you like. Like Nic said, your ring is on your hand, nobody is going to notice.

It probably wouldn't have really influenced my choice either. I went with white gold jewellery (earrings, bracelet, brooch) because my theme was green, burgundy & silver. My rings are platinum so they did fit in nicely.

I'm having my BM's wear gold accesories (well my chief bridesmaid came up with an idea in that way, and I liked the idea- of red dress with gold accesories), and im thinking of buying them ruby necklaces with gold settings as part of their presents, Im not sure for myself because a friend of mine is making my necklace as part of wedding present and itll be red and gold, my e ring is gold with garnet (so dark almost like a ruby- people think its a ruby straightaway so that was good considering none of the ruby stone rings fit me when I went e ring shopping with FH :lol: Ruby being my birthstone and all) and my wedder will most likely be plain gold made to match my e ring as my e ring is an unusual shape (victorian setting and all) so its like, two narrow bands widening in the middle so I think maybe a chevron shaped wedder might fit with it because I want to wear my e ring with wedder for a bit of bling :lol: On the day I will wear the e ring on my right hand of course!

You'd hate my wedder then! It's yellow, white, and rose gold all together. :lol: The rest of my jewelery was silver, partly because I usually prefer it, and partly because I made it myself, and have never worked with gold wire... :wink:

My e-ring is yellow gold with a little bit of white gold or something holding up the central diamond so it doesn't look yellow and my wedder is yellow gold.

I wore silver jewellery on the day (just earrings and a simple necklace) because I find gold a little garish when there's lots of it and my dress was pink with diamond white lace so gold really wouldn't have worked.

I had my bouquet in my hand for most of the day too so there are very few photos from the day where you can even see my ring let alone pick the colour of it!
