    I love unplated white gold. It looks so much richer than regular, rhodium plated white gold to me, plus it never needs to be replated. If anything, plated white gold looks more like sterling to me, as sterling is a very white metal. Unplated white gold can’t possibly be mistaken for silver, IMO.

    smudgie :  I love unplated white gold. It’s so unique, warm, and…genuine? Idk. It’s also better for the environment I’ve read haha. Something about how the rhodium plating is…idk can’t remember lol. ANYWAY! Your ring looks great now!! I’m not always such a fan of silvery metals (plated wg or platinum), so maybe I’m just biased. It looks beautiful!

    smudgie :  I think you definitely did the right thing, now you don’t have to worry about replateing, you can just get a polishing cloth and make it extra shiny whenever you feel like it

    Looks really good!

    I didn’t know you could ‘vanilla’ your rings. I learn something new on this site everyday.

    I like it, your set is really pretty too. I have white gold rings, but have been wearing them for nearly 3 years now and never got them re-plated as the warmer colour never bothered me, so I guess I have vanilla gold now? Haha.

    I like it! Never heard of unplating white gold, but I really like it on your hand! Also wanted to let you know your set is a huge inspiration to me, because my engagement ring has a Valentino setting too ๐Ÿ˜Š
