Does rose gold need to be redipped? I’m looking at getting a rose gold “fun ring” (probably a morganite solitaire) and I’d like to know how high maintenance it would be.
Also, I’d like to get a clear stone (probably clear sapphire) solitaire in an unconventional design for fun and am wondering if I should set it in rose gold or white gold. I worry that rose gold & white stone would look too trendy in the future, and that white gold & white stone would look too bridal! Thoughts?

I’m under the impression that like yellow gold, no rose gold does not need to be dipped because it doesn’t have a rhodium plating like white gold.
To me, any “white” stone reminds me of an e-ring/bridal. Maybe rose gold and morganite? If you wear it on your right hand though I think that would clear up any confusion on whether the jewelry is bridal.

As long as it’s solid rose gold it shouldn’t need to be dipped as far as I know. If you get something that’s vermeil or filled it might wear off eventually.

YAY for no redipping problems! 😀
And I’m leaning towards rose gold + clear stone as well, in addition to my rose gold morganite solitaire. So excited!!! ^.^

Genuine rose gold doesn’t need to be redipped (its a solid alloy of copper, yellow gold and silver). There are some rings out there that are rose plated white metal, and those will need replating. Fine jewellery should be solid rose gold.
Excited to see your rose gold beauty! Morganite and rose gold is such a yummy combo:)
