Doesn’t sound ridiculous to me. I would call around and see what others offer if you’re curious.

That seems very steep to me.  I’d call around.  I suppose you are paying a large premium for same-day.

Redipping is a very simple procedure and it doesn’t matter what your ring looks like — They are not actually dipping your ring into liquid rhodium, so the intricacies doesn’t matter. They are submerging your ring in a vat of liquid and attaching it to an electrified cable. The water is negatively charged, your ring is postively charged, and thus the rhodium particles in the solution are attracted and electroplated to your ring.


I googled rhodium dipping in my area — the most expensive I saw was 60 dollars. I’d say you’re being taken for a ride.

@irishphoenix:  My jeweler does mine for free! Is this where you purchased your ring?

It sounds high to me.  I had my e-ring resized and replated, and it only cost $80.  Now, that doesn’t sound like a lot of work, but my e-ring is channel set and the diamonds had to be removed and the channels reconfigured to hold the diamonds. If they hadn’t reconfigured the channels the diamonds would have been falling out after the ring was resized. So this was an intensive resizing.
