I have a question about wearing 2 different rings on the same finger.
My engagement ring is a 9ct white gold ring and I want to get a platinum wedding ring.

I have heard than one of them will get scratched as they don’t have the hardness so I was considering getting a cheap sterling silver ring (see picture above) to put between my two rings, so that ring would be a protection. Could sterling silver scratch 9ct white gold or platinum?

Thanks in advance,

Ocean Child

I did ask a number of jewelers about this when I had my ering reset. Sterling silver will develop little burrs that can scratch other metals. With gold..the higher the carat the softer it is so 9 carat is the hardest and can scratch 10k which can scratch 14k and on up. I decided not to worry about it and just wear everything. I change my rings around a lot so they’re not rubbing against each other every day..I do think the 9 carat would scratch up the platinum..because platinum scratches easily.
