    smudgie :  Haha! I have a sneaking suspicion I would feel the exact same way. Don’t ever upgrade the stone – you won’t sleep for a year from all the guilt!

    I expect after a few days or weeks of wearing them, you’ll get used to the slight difference and they’ll start to feel 100% like ‘your’ rings again 🙂

    I really like it! It gives a warm soft glow plus highlights the stone in your Engagement Ring.

    I love it! I’ve been considering getting the plating taken off my rings.

    OK, I’ll be the lone voice of dissent and say I prefer the plated rings better. embarassed  I think it’s because the unplated rings look old or worn down to me.  I prefer shiny rings and have had my wedding band plated twice in a year.  Sorry, just my personal preference.

    I think the unplanted gold looks beautiful, and I think suits your skin tone perfectly!

    smudgie :  if it was plated with anything you are better off removing it. Too much maintenance. It looks beautiful without it.

    smudgie :  Beautiful set! I think it looks great. Both my rings are white gold and I have no intention of getting them re-dipped.

    Absolutely gorgeous! I definitely think you made the right decision. Unplated white gold is my favorite — it is so unique and soft and really evokes such romance. Aside from loving the look of unplated white gold, I am also a fan of the environmental benefits of avoiding rhodium plating. Plus, who wants to be without their rings while they’re being replated? smile
