I have had my engagement ring for less than a week and have already noticed a few very very light scratches (I am a clutz, btw) on my ER. It is 14k white gold. Is this normal? Will cleaning/ buffing it help? Thanks!

@luckylady3090: It’s gonna get scratched inevitably. Don’t worry about it if they’re not super noticeable.

Gold is soft and the higher the gold content, the more scratches it will get. You’ll notice them more on the underside of your ring (unless its some kind of eternity band). You can get rid of them when you take your ring to get dipped/cleaned.

I scratched mine pretty noticeably (to me at the time) like a week after I got it. It’s very normal for gold, and I don’t notice it at all anymore. I went to look for it right now I have several more I never knew about, oops! I think jewelers can fix it but I’ve never tried.
