    I feel like rose gold is kind of a trendy thing, so it might be hard to find someone who does dips – I’d check with your jeweller. You might have better luck at an independant jeweller rather than a chain jeweller. As to whether it will look better – well, that’s up to you!

    I think it would be perfectly fine! You can get it redipped yearly (once a year or however much needed) for a low cost I am sure.

    Oh let me add you wont be able to resize it if need be though with the rose gold on it. Once it wears off you can though.

    @SpecialSundae:  Oh yes if need be. I meant for in the future. If your ring size went up due to swelling of the heat or something else, then with the plating you couldn’t.

    But you can always size it up before if you think you should. 🙂

    Gold rings can be rhodium plated, but I do not think you can plate with rose gold. You’d have to change the whole setting I think. What is the metal of the setting now? I’m assuming white gold, but you said silver unless you’re just referring to the color.

    ETA: I think it’s a beautiful ring and actually prefer the white metal with that style.

    I have rings dipped in rose, and pendants, problem is they turn blackish after a while and they have to be redipped in rose gold because getting silver back is chemically impossible unless they wear down the piece a lot in polishing.  if you don’t mind redipping, you have no issue getting it done.

    @SpecialSundae:  It can definitely be done and if you don’t mind getting it dipped often then I say go for it!

    I’m pretty sure you can have it done, as there’s a beautiful ring for sale on Ice (which keeps taunting me from the ad on the sidebar) that’s sterling silver plated with rose gold. It just may be difficult to find a jeweller who does it, but it’s certainly possible. Morganite looks stunning with rose gold.
