I would look at plating/dipping. If you start to cut this apart it might not survive.

jily:  I agree.

The stones could be damaged when picking them out of the existing setting and when resetting. Unless you really hate the yellow gold, I would leave it. I personally prefer white metals, but my everyday rings were purchased new. Separately,  have my grandmother’s yellow gold wedding band that I wear occasionally, and I will leave it as is. Maybe just wear your ring when you are wearing yellow gold jewelry (like I do)? Sorry, I’m sure that’s not the feedback you were looking for.

Congrats on your engagement and receiving a beautiful family heirloom!

I have a similar ring, which my Fiance reset since I wanted rose gold instead of yellow gold. I believe the reset cost around $1k for materials + labor, but it would’ve been less had he sold the yellow gold (he didn’t want to).

ETA: The jeweler charged the same for white gold.
