ME TOO!

I had mine replated because I thought you HAD to for the warranty (they do it when they send it in) and I’m not a fan of yellow gold. But then the more I looked at it after 6+ months of no plating (or less plating), the more I loved the look. I plan on getting it redipped right before the wedding so that my ering and band can wear down together.

I’ll never get my ring re-plated.  Polished/buffed yes… re-plated no.  I love the colour.

My old rings was white gold and something to do with my hands changed the colour of my rings to warm white tone, they definitely weren’t gold but warmer. I thought it looked really pretty so I understand where you’re coming from!

@BluePeaches:  Hey, me, too! Except that I am also Irish, and therefore, VERY pale.

@BluePeaches:  I don’t mind the wear on my ring!  I have gotten both e- and wedding rings redipped but only because you could tell I’d worn my ering way longer.  I’d like the wear to be even if possible.

I am in the minority then it seems!  I disliked how my white gold ring looked once it wore a bit that I went for platinum for my engagement and wedding rings!

The first time my ring wore down I was upset and had it replated but that was right before my first wedding.  The second time I found that I too liked the warmness it gave the gold and I liked that it showed it’s age over time.  Plus, I am cheap and I couldn’t stomach the additional cost of platinum when replating white gold was so cheap.  Now it just sits in a box since I was divorced.  I should have it replated and sell it to someone else to enjoy.

Does anyone have pics of their unplated or worn plating ring?  I have a rhodium plated WG ring, but it’s is a little too “silvery” for my taste (I have light olive skin, yellow gold compliments it better).

I don’t mind it either!  However, I did get it replated yesterday before our wedding this weekend and it looks amazing! so bright and shiny and new! I have pave side stones 3/4 around my band, so you never see the worn down bottom anyways, but it does make a huge difference when I have my shiny new wedding band next to it!

My engagement ring started to took terrible, but because I had no warranty it would cost me so much to get it replated. When I took both my rings to get soldered the jeweller said there would be no plating left once he was done. When I got them back all polished and without bits of plating worn off here and there, I LOVED them. I love them the way they are now!

@melisande:  Here is a pic of mine!
