Sure! Get them both rhodium plated at the jewelry store. Then they will both be shiny and bright!

if they’re both rhodium plated they would probably look similar? can you go see it in person and compare?

Your fiance is correct. They may go together, but the color will not match. One will be lighter than the other. If you are happy with that, then I say go ahead and get it. As for wearing differently, you can always get them joined together, so they won’t rub on each other.

oooh. That might be tricky. That might be a lot of sizing for a half-eternity band.

And, you can also get your rings re-plated. Some people get them re-plated every year or even every six months.

Depending on the metal of the ring, you can get it sized down as much as you want. It is the sizing up that you have to worry about because if it is sized up to much, the ring will be thinner to make up the size. When you get your rings sized, make sure you ask the jeweler for the extra gold. You have already paid for it, so you should get to keep it. That way, if you need to size up later down the road, you will already have the matching gold. Another option for the gold, if there is enough, is to have a pair of earings made with the extra gold. That is what I did.

1/2 eternity can be sized down. 7 is a case size and they can almost always size to 4.75 if they know what they’re doing and the ring won’t be compromised (in other words, ask the jeweler).

It’s true that 10K and 14K white gold will wear down differently over time and have slightly different color… but that’s what rhodium plating is for; it will make them both white and bright again. You may just have to do it more often than you would otherwise (but that still won’t be more than every 6 months to 1 year).

That should be fine to size. I was thinking something like this when you said half-eternity.

Nice find!

Does Kohl’s do resizing or have a gurantee plan to replace stones or anything?
