Hello bees! Long time lurker, first time poster.
Sorry about the huge picture.
I have been married a little over 2 years ago. About 6 months ago I lost my rings. 🙁 that’s when I discovered this lovely site.
Anyway, last week while visiting my grandmother she casually mentions how she has a old set for sale for $300 (not a family ring) I took one look at the ring and fell In LOVE! It’s the first ring I would even consider since losing my first. Except the band is yellow gold. I prefer rose or white. But she offered to drop it to $150 for us. I just had to jump on that.
Now my question is, can I have it dipped to be white gold? If not can I have it reset onto a rose gold band? I don’t want a new setting. I just really wish my bands weren’t yellow. Do you know of any way to do this? I know I will need to speak to a jeweler first but I wanted opinion.
Also, if you want to post your rings that you bought on a budget and/or vintage antique rings I wouldn’t be upset. 🙂

If you have it dipped be prepared to have redip it more often than you would other WG jewelry. I think dipping it is easier than resetting it though. Honestly you can’t see much of the YG anyways.

Where is the yelloe gold? It isnt visible if that makes you feel better. Im not sure you can dip it and make it into white gold…. Im thinking you might be able to have a new shank put on if you are set on getting rid of the old one.

just the bands. I know, everyone else keeps telling me you can’t even see it. Which is what I’d tell someone in my situation. But it bothers me. The part the diamonds are set in is white gold.

@MrsSelttab18: I absolutely LOVE your rings! I’ve always lusted after sets like those. I know you says it bothers you but give it time. I bet it will grow on you. I was the SAME way and now I love yellow gold.
I agree with @asscherlover: in that it will have to be dipped very often and that would actually drive me nuts.

thanks so much! I fell in love with it as soon as she showed them to me. And yes, part of me doesn’t want to change a thing because they have history. Thanks! Maybe I’ll hold out out a while and see how I feel!

Beautiful! I’m a fellow white gold lover though, so I would have it dipped.

@MrsSelttab18: Let us know what you decide!

definitely! DH said I can do whatever I want. Especially considering I got the rings for WAY under budget. 🙂

I think redipping would be by far the easiest thing

Beautiful! I wish I could talk my grandma into selling or giving me some of her rings! But I’m hoping when I get married she will give me her butterfly bracelet 🙂

I like it just the way it is, actually! Very pretty!

I was really surprised my grandma even brought it up. My sister ‘bought’ a ring from her that she never fully paid for and then pawned and she vowed no more selling to family. Lol. But I’m in love with it!
