Wedding band rubbing against engagement ring!

Hello! Looking for a bit of advice if anyone knows about this.

I've been married 8 months and I always wear my white gold wedding band & engagement ring together. I'm pretty careful with them - take them off when I shower/do cleaning/wash my hands etc but I've noticed some wear on my engagement ring that I think is being caused by the stones in my wedding band. I'm quite upset about it as I've not had them long and already had them re-rhodium plated once as they were going yellow with wear. The jeweller said that the yellowing was normal but I was shocked that it happened so quickly :( I've added some photos so hopefully you can see what I mean - it's were the prongs meet the band.

Has anyone else seen wear on their rings? What can I do about it, other than not wearing my engagement ring everyday?

    I can't really tell on the photo to be honest. Rubbing and wear normally happens if the two rings are of different carats, I don't know if that's the case for you?

    No, they're both 9k white gold

    White gold does pit and scratch easily and you will have to replate every now and again. Looking at your ring I don't think there is anything you can do to stop the two rubbing together. I got a shaped wedding ring because of the jutting out of my engagement ring. But I also love an old battered wedding ring it speaks volumes about going through thick and thin, I'd have had an old ring second hand had I been able to make sure it wasn't second hand due to a divorce, may sound a bit silly and sentimental, I know!
