I absolutely LOVE the look of white gold with my skin tone. I can’t wear yellow gold at all! But I swear my body chemistry must be SO acidic… I have to send my ring off at least 3x a year to have it rhodium dipped AGAIN!!! It’s covered under my warranty so I never have to pay extra to have it done or I’d probably consider saving up and getting platinum since it’s just a thin plain band.
I just wondered if this is common for anyone else or am I just strange? I also use hand sanitizer sometimes and lotion on my dry hands (thanks, thyroid disease!) but I take my ring OFF when I apply those and put them back on afterward.
It’s not costing me anything but every time they have to send it off I HATE being without it for 10 days for them to do it! The horror stories I’ve read on the BEE haven’t helped either because I’m always nervous they will lose/misplace/damage it, too! They would replace the ring, but they can’t replace the sentiment!
