I have a white gold and sapphire e-ring and I wear it constantly, the only time I take it off is to self tan, that’s it. I have noticed the underside of my ring has a very slight yellow tinge. Im happy to get it rhodium replated to keep it nice and shiny but was wondering how often this needs to be done?
Am I wearing it too much?

@aribanana: In having my E ring for one year, I have had to have it re-dipped 3 times!! The jewler said it just depends on your body’s chemistry and how much acid you have in your system.

Yup, totally depends on your body. I’ve have my ring since Dec 2012 and haven’t had it dipped yet, although the underside is just now starting to get a yellowish hue to it.

@Chapssstick: Really!? I’m afraid for my own ring now!
@aribanana: I’ve been wearing my wg ering everyday for 11 months now, and I take it off once I get home. Not even a hint of colour change yet:) When I researched wg rings the statistic I recall coming across was every 2 years.

My last wedding set (previously married) was white gold. I wore it for 7 years, it never had to be and never yellowed.

My jeweler told me most women she sees come in once a year.
I’ve had my ring since last May and see no signs of needing it done because of discoloration. I am hard on my hands though so the underside is kind of scratched but it is not yellow at all.
A friend of mine has had her set 5 years and still hasn’t had it redipped once. It probably could use it now but it’s not very noticable.
So it does seem to very much depend on a person to person basis how often you go.

It really depends on what you want it to look like.
I got my e-ring rhodium dipped after about one year but I only did it so that it would match my wedding band. It’s miss been about ten months and I have no plans of taking it on anyone soon because I like the slight yellow undertones.

I’ve had my ring for over a year now, and it’s been dipped once. It needs to get re-dipped soon.

I never have. I probably should do it before the wedding though…

I’ve had it redipped only once since getting it in Dec 12… I really should have gotten it dipped before the wedding, as it started to turn again right before! I think when I take in my set to be soldiered together I will have both redipped (wedding band is fine but I’ve not been wearing it very long!).

Good thread. This is putting me off getting a white gold ring… I have lots of issues wearing gold (as in a try a ring on at the jewelers and my skin reacts in that time!). I was thinking about getting a white gold band just to see how long the rhodium plating would last. I don’t react to rhodium, thank goodness.

I’ve had mine for 7 months and so far nothing. I also wear it all the time.

I haven’t had my e-ring replated yet, but I have a rhr that I got for my 30th birthday – I’m 33 now. I had to have it replated after a year and a half. I wear it every single day. I imagine my e-ring will be the same. I might have it re-dipped right before the wedding so it will start off the same color as my band though!

I had mine re-dipped at the 10-month mark only because it was right before the wedding and I wanted it nice and shiny. I have a feeling that if I keep it in white gold, redipping will be a once-a-year type of thing.
However, I’m thinking of getting my stones reset in rose gold (same setting style), so we’ll see.
