It’s amazing the difference cleaning a ring can make

I’d take it in, have it re-dipped (14k gold needs to be re-plated every now and then since the white coating comes off) and polished to make it shiny. It’ll look like new! I’d go quickly to see if they can rush it for your wedding.

I would take it in for a cleaning and if there’s time since it’s white gold you could see if they can give it a new rhodium plating. That would help a lot. Some places send out for this though so you might not have the time in which case a good cleaning should suffice.

@bahamutangel:   Yup, just take it in! The setting with no prongs is probaby a bezel setting, mine is also bezel set. My ring was pretty dinged up too because it’s 18kt palladium white golds, so super soft, and I took it in right before the wedding and they were able to buff out all but one of the scratches.

@bahamutangel:  a cleaning doesn’t fix the scratches. If you take it in, ask them to clean and polish it. It’s either free or a nominal cost, depending on the store.
