Just thinking about the chemistry of it…it sounds like BS. How often you get the rhodium plating done (it doesn’t actually involve dipping the ring in gold the way one might imagine) will have much more to do with your skin’s chemistry, the products you use, and how often you wear the ring.

I don’t even know what redipping is? I have a Tacori…am I supposed to do something special with it?

I’ve had my Tacori engagement ring for a year and I got my wedding band in Oct. I never take either off, I wash hands fairly often, use sanitizer every so often and they still look white and new looking to me.

I’ve had mine for a year and a half and I haven’t redipped yet.  It still looks pretty good to me!

There are advantages of both metals. I have a Tacori White Gold ring and went through all levels of debates over the metals. I just got it about a week ago and I hope I made the right choice.

To my knowledge, Tacori uses a palladium alloy with it’s white gold so it stays more white than other white gold that uses nickel which will go more yellow. When Tacori white gold yellows it is supposed to be more a grey versus true yellow yellow. When you first receive it, it is rhodium coated though so it may take a while to wear down and show it. People will have different timelines for this because some people can change the color easily others can be slow.

Tacori does provides lifetime plating for white gold rings, however it needs to be sent to Tacori and done in their facility.

@DashingBride: You won’t need to have any rhodium platting done, no. I’m not sure which Tacori you have, but if you have one with extensive engraving, milgrain, etc, some of that may eventually wear off. When platinum gets scratched, banged, etc, the metal kind of “moves” to a new spot, instead of just coming off like white gold.

We had one lady who used to come into the jewelry store every 6 months to get her ring reshaped because it looked like a football. No idea what she did, but it can happen!

ive been wearing my Tacori 2620 since July. I just got my tacori 18kt matching eternity band and it is significantly whiter!! I am going to take my ering to Reeds and have them “dip” my ring so it will match my wedding band before the big day. Id rather pay the $80 than be without my ring for 6 weeks. I plan on doing this yearly because I am a bartender and it will just look so much better to me!

@hollyeve16: Make sure that Tacori won’t void the warranty! I’m not sure if redipping counts because I hear various different things. I know sizing the ring too many sizes can void the lifetime warranty and things like that. My local vendor said that they can dip it and it won’t void the warranty. However, the place I purchased my ring from said it would and that I need to send to Tacori. 

Also, just wondering, do you have any other white gold jewelry to compare against? Like, do you have a tendency to wear off rhodium plating normally or is it faster? I keep hearing mixed things about the speed that it wears off and no one has really a clear answer. I’ve had white gold earrings and they are as white as the day I bought them over 6 years ago! I’m just trying to get a general gauge for how long I can expect to service the ring next.
