Part of life.  But you can get the jeweller to buff it out and re-dip it.  But buffing it out thins out the ring slowly.

So far, I’ve just let it go, but it bothers me too! Bumping this because I am just as curious as you are to others’ answers.

I’ve had my ring for less than a month and I have the same problem 🙁 A while back a bee posted that once a year (about the day she got the ring) she gets it buffed and redipped to make it good as new. I was thinking I might do the same thing.

I’ve wondered about this as well.  My rings are really scratched up.  I inted to let it go, but I’m thinking at this rate, in not too much time the rings will look awful!

I’ve had my e-ring for a little over 2 years now, and the white gold has been slowly rubbing off over time (it currently looks kind of halfway between white and rose gold). Apparently white gold is plated in rhodium, and the rhodium just wears off after a while. The jeweler who sold us my wedding band recommended redipping it once a year, and he even said he’d do it for free! I’m planning on doing that soon!

Mine have never had bad scratches though… and I wear them when I clean and cook and everything!
