I only have the e-ring right now, but I’ve noticed so many scratches on it and it makes me very sad!  I began noticing them probably around the 2 month mark also. 

Hope someone has a suggestion on how to fix/prevent this!

From what I’ve read, gold (white and yellow) is a soft metal. Scratches are to be expected as normal wear and tear. And, white gold is yellow gold mixed with another metal, so over time, it will lose it’s white appearance and it will become a soft gold color that is really only noticable in certain light.

I’ve already noticed the back of my e-ring band turning a light gold. I’ve been wearing mine for a year now. You can get it replated/finished/dipped at a jeweler, but I’m not planning on doing it very often. I’ll probably get my ring “tuned up” before the wedding though so it’s not so dull next to my wedding band.

I keep my diamond clean with Windex. Seriously. A minute soaking in a shot glass of the stuff and then a soft brush to scrub the setting is all it takes. Rinse and wear.
