I have a question about my e-ring. It is white gold band with a solitaire diamond. Of course we all know white gold actually has a gold base and it is dipped to give it that white gold look (I think it’s called rodium or something). My e-ring since I have been wearing it for 3 years, in by the prongs are turning goldish I guess from everyday wear. Should I get it re-dipped before the wedding or will it ruin the look of the ring or make it look bad??

I just had mine re-dipped and it looks fantastic. I haven’t seen it this sparkly since we bought it over a year ago. I highly recommend doing it before the wedding!

redip! redip! redip! Everytime I go in to get my ring cleaned my jewler does this for free. It makes the ring look super sparkly and beautiful!

I don’t think re-dipping will ruin it at all! I know when my fiance was having my ring designed he asked them how they handle the fact that the rhodium plating on white gold wears off, and found out that my ring includes free re-dipping for life. I can’t imagine that it would be so commonplace if it didn’t leave the ring looking great. If anything, it’s awesome because all of those little scratches that inevitably get etched into your ring will be “dipped” away.

Definitely get it re-dipped. This will be especially good timing right before the wedding because (presumably) your wedding ring is white gold as well and since you haven’t yet worn it, it will be perfectly white and shiny. If you get your Engagement Ring dipped it will be nice and shiny to match your wedding ring. This is what I did. It made for great pictures 🙂 Good luck and congratulations!

It makes it look great, and like someone said it will match the band better. I have an antique ring and before I got it plated, trying it on next to new wedding bands it looked strange. It isn’t expensive either (if you have to pay for it) somewhere between $30-$50. Some jewelers recommend replating it ever 6 months or at least yearly.

Definitely get it redipped. When we were shopping for bands this weekend the jeweler re-dipped mine for free and it looks so great!

Redipping is the most fabulous thing ever! I love getting my ring dipped, and they often do it for free when you get it cleaned if you have extended service plans!
