I would! I brought my platinum ring in for a check up about a year in (it’s pave, so wanted to check prongs). He buffed and shined it, looked brand new. I plan to do it right before the wedding. It shouldn’t cost much at all, my guess would be $10-20. I had to pay for other things while I was there so I’m not sure how much he would charge just for the cleaning and shine.

I did! Really made it nice and sparkly. It was free because we took it to the jeweler we bought it from, I took it to a different place before after I scratched it on concrete and I think it was $10

I would. Honestly mine has never looked that scratched/patina’d though…

I would. Often a jewelry store will clean a ring for you and check prongs for free, but if you need the jeweler to buff out scratches it’ll cost you probably $15-25.  Be sure you go to a store that has a jeweler on site, as many don’t – and they’ll have to send it out to a jeweler, which can take up to a week to get back.

I have a similar style ring in Platinum and mine was starting to look pretty grey. I popped into my local jeweller and they gave it a polish for free! It looked amazing afterwards like it was brand new 🙂

Have you thought of getting it rhodium dipped?  I heard they do this to white gold to make it bright and shiny and when they do is to sterling silver makes the metal looks so white and also produces a coating to protect the metal
