I’m taking my engagement ring in to the jewelry store tomorrow to have it sent off to be redipped — white gold rings tend to get a yellowish tint, for those who don’t know, so they can be redipped to make them look brand new. I’m doing it so it’ll be fresh for the wedding next month.
I’m going to feel naked, they said it’ll be gone for a week or two.. I’m curious to see how many people notice & ask if we’ve called off the wedding.
Did anyone else feel this way.. for a second I thought about wearing a fake ring while it’s gone, but I’m not.. I’ll just patiently wait.

Congrats on your wedding next month. Hopefully your ring will be back in a few days. A week is oddly long.

Wow. That doesn’t sound right. It takes less than an hour for them to do that.

Wow that is a long time to be gone! Usually I take mine to the jeweler to be dipped and pick it up the next day.

If its from a chain, it can take that long.

@jpalm13: Yep. I have an old promise ring from Zales and I’ve had it replated a few times. They send the ring off to be replated elsewhere. 1-2 weeks sounds about right for a chain.

@X0JLYNN03: I sooooooo feel you right now. Just dropped my baby girl off today as well…. Getting upgrade to 2ct diamond …. Redipped and building a matching band to gO with the first one. Feel naked….lost and miserable .. Hands felt odd driving home… On the plus side I will be in love all over again by months end

@X0JLYNN03: I would probably have a stand-in! I would feel naked as well!

@diamondsforevershine: upgrade to 2 carat. NICE!!!
I have a stand in for times like this. Don’t know what I’d do without it.

I had a sweet 16 ring from Gordon’s. I paid an extra $10 to have it back in 2 days. I was miserably naked without it, but it would have taken a week or two if I hadn’t paid rush services.

@X0JLYNN03: It is now March 1 and I have been without my ring since February 6. It has been sent off to get the wedding ring matched to it. I definitely feel naked but so far no one has said anything. I think you notice it more than other people.

I feel you! My e-ring is currently away to have a custom-band made for it.
I have a stand-in set as well, to feel something on my finger. Plus, I love jewelery so much it’s an excuse to change it up for 2 weeks. My stand in is a very different style so it’s fun. I always love love love wearing my wedding set again though 😉
Also, when it’s best not to wear a large ring, I have an eternity diamond band to wear alone because my wedding band is contour and soldered to my e-ring.
Anyway, the more options, the less you miss your beautiful e-ring! 😉
