I had mine redipped before the wedding, and it looked gorgeous! I wish I could get it redipped more often.

I’ve had my ring only just over a year now and while the back is a little worn it otherwise looks great. I have no yellowing or anything just looks like more of a “brushed” finish on the back.

However, I wouldn’t hesitate to get mine re-dipped (rhodium plated) when I need it. For me, lifetime re-dipping was included with the purchase of my e-ring. My w-band was purchased elsewhere so I would have to pay to have that one done but I think it’s worth it if you want your ring back to the nice smooth shiny metal look it had when you got it.

I don’t think there are many risks and while I was told some people do it every year I know people who have waited much longer than that, many friends of mine married 6 years or so have never had their’s done yet.

I just had mine replated because I’m pregnant and fat and can’t wear them right now.  Haha.  They look AMAZING now.  Like new again!  Do it!

I’ve never had mine plated, but I love the light warmth of white gold.

urchin:  I had my e-ring plated in rhodium the day before my wedding and I would highly recommend having it done!! I didn’t think the white gold on my e-ring had faded at all until I tried it on with my wedding band a few months before the wedding. The e-ring was very noticeably yellowish compared to my brand new wedding band. So I had the e-ring dipped in rhodium the day before the wedding and it truned out amazing. Looked brand new and matched my wedding band perfectly. I would highly recommend it. It only cost $50 and I definately plan to keep doing it at least once a year.

I had my e-ring replated last year so that it would match my wedding band but now I’m just kept them wear down together. I kind of like the look of the warmer gold so I doubt I will take them in again anytime soon. I think it really depends on your color preference.

My rhodium plating started wearing off really quickly (no clue why). So I actaully had it taken off and never looked back.

In the 21 months I’ve had my ering I have only had it dipped once and just figured I should get the wedding band done at the same time so they match.  There isn’t any risk to it besides the hit that $90 bucks will take to your pocketbook.  Try to call around to see if anyone dips it for less.  The average in my area for redipping is about $60-75 a ring, but thanks to a bee here I found a place that does it for $15 per my wedding set.

urchin:  I had a white gold ring re-plated and it came out beautifully. Cost around $40 and was done within a few days. I loved how bright and shiny it turned out (it was an old ring from the 60s that had never been re-dipped). I recommend doing it!

urchin:  I have mine dipped every six months. my jeweler does it for $25 a ring, so I take them in more often than I probably should!
