I have a 14K yellow gold wedding set – the ering and matching wrap. Today, I had them off, playing while bored, and noticed that the wrap is bent! Also, the yellow gold is scratching and dulled. I know it’s not the most expensive set out there – and probably overpriced, at that. We paid 1200 at Littman. But I’m bummed. Plus, it gets so dirty, so quickly.
Can it be fixed, and can it be redipped or repolished?

@nyscpa2be: i would go back to where you bought it and show them what you just explained. you just got it so it shouldn’t be wearing this quickly.

It can be polished and that will make it regain its original sheen. I’m not sure if they can straighten the bend but I assume they can, as well. I don’t think yellow gold is ever dipped(?). It is the color it is, all the way through, not plated. Is it changing color?
By The Way, all gold and platinum scratches…all of our rings have scratches on them after a little wear (usually mostly on the underside though). if it’s any consolation, platinum scratches much faster than gold. Not sure what the rest of your ring’s alloy is made out of though…

So I just called the store where we purchased it. The guy who I got told me that all rings are soft and will scratch, and that bending is normal too. He said to bring it in and they will polish it (nice) and REBEND it. Not reshape but rebend. I know, wrong play on words, but I actually started crying off the phone. This is just such a stressful week between Darling Husband and college finals, and now my ring….I need this vacation coming up!

@joya_aspera: It’s only changing color on the wrap, where the two diamonds are attached. That portion is white gold, and it’s almost black now. I have been getting it cleaned every month, and its still getting black inside. But the yellow portion that is dulling is on the side of the ring, where the two rings rub each other. And if I look at it in just the right light, it does look like the yellow is fading.
