Anyone ever have white gold on a two-tone 14k ring replated? The shank of my band is yellow gold, but the head is white gold. I would like to get the white gold replated with rhodium. The jeweler I took it to said they put nail polish (?!!!) on the yellow gold to ensure it doesn’t get rhodium plated. Anyone else ever have this done? If so, do you know how they did it?

I have, it looked good as new! I don’t know HOW they did it, but it wasn’t a problem! Here’s a pic of the ring (after it has been worn a LOT) so you can get an idea of what it entailed. The edges are white, the middle and inside are yellow.

I’ve heard of nail polish as well as yellow water color paint ( there’s something about the yellow pigment ) it has a special name but I forget… It helps make sure only certain parts get plated … Also when soldering especially on intricate things some Jewelers use white out because it keeps the part that you don’t want to come undone dirty because solder only works When all surfaces are clean so nail polish will work the same way to make sure certain parts stay “dirty” and don’t get plated …. It all just tips an tricks of the trade
