So my engagment rign is a 3 stone ring, I think its about .6 tcw. So its smaller but its perfect….except its in yellow gold. And I would really prefer white gold or even rose gold. The ring is actually my mother’s ring. It has a ton of special meaning to me and so resetting the stones is just not something I’m comfortable doing. It looks like I can add an enhancer/jacket whatever they’re called to the ring to add a little more bling. Do you think I can add a different metal enhancer to it to cover all the yellow gold? So the ring is still intact as is, but I can change it to match my wants a little more? Is this possible? Or am I dreaming? If I can’t make it look like white gold or rose gold, I’ll just move on. It means more to me to use this ring, then it does to go buy a new ring in the metal of my choice, but I was hoping I could have both! 🙂

Mixed metals are pretty in style right now, so if that’s your style go for it!! Also you could possibly get your ring rhodium plated. That way it would have the white gold look without being reset. Due to the yellow under you would need to get it replated often

mgk0813: I don’t think most enhancers cover the actual gold of the ring, they just add more to the sides of it. I think the mixed look is really great – a rose gold wrap with a yellow gold ring could be really beautiful. I wanted rose gold but I ended up going with yellow gold because I decided on a sapphire instead of a diamond (I’m not fond of rose gold with sapphires). I’m considering a rose gold band because I think that would look lovely, but I also have my grandma’s wedding band, so I understand your hesitation!
If I were you I would go to some jewelry stores and try on wraps in white or rose gold to see how they look with your ring. Unfortunately I haven’t had much luck googling the combination, but I think it would look really nice1

You will still be able to see the top and sides of the yellow gold ring but mixing metals is really in right now. As PP stated, you can also have your ring rhodium dipped to make it white.

A jacket won’t cover up all of the gold, but it will cover up some of the gold when you look at it from the side. I think mixing metals is a great look, so a white or rose gold jacket with the yellow gold ring would look great!

Mixed metals are very trendy right now..a rose gold jaket enhancer would look awesome! You will still be able to see the yellow gold..but I like yellow gold and its definitely making a come back..ive seen a few bees that have yellow gold and rose gold wedding sets and they are gorgeous!..yellow and white gold look great together too!

If the yellow gold bothers you and you don’t want to reset your diamonds, you could always rhodium plate it..only downside is that youll probably have to have it redipped every 6 months or so..but it will look white gold!

The jeweler didn’t recommend rhodium plating the yellow gold. Of course he said it was doable, but it wouldn’t last long. I think I’m going to just get a yellow gold enhancer because I LOVE tiny bezel set diamonds. So the enhancer will have that but the settings for the diamond will be white gold. So something similar tot the ring in the link. But its a 3 stone ring, and the enhancer will have the bezels going down the side of the ring. And then once they stop it’ll be gold (so on the underside of my finger). I think anyway…I have to take my ideas to the jeweler and have him design something.
And I really don’t mind yellow gold. All of my jewelery is yellow gold. I just think that diamonds look nicer on white gold especially with like the eternity bands and other wedding bands. Its hard to find a yellow gold wedding band that I like.
