After seeing how dingy mine looked next to my new wedding band, I took it in to be re-dipped a week before the wedding. I didn’t wear it again until the night of our rehearsal dinner, and even then, the only reason was we were staying at a hotel that night, and it was easiest to transport it on my hand. I’m sure it won’t get discolored in a week, but I wanted mine to look brand new on our wedding day so I didn’t wear it at all.

I had mine dipped a few weeks out and then had it cleaned (you can do this in store while you wait, takes less than 10 min) the day before.  It didn’t get messed up in the few weeks before the wedding and the cleaning made it sparkle all over again!  I would only worry if you do things on a regular basis that could damage it.  If not, just take it off if you’re doing something that you fear might scratch it.  I’m sure it will be fine!

I didn’t re-dip mine before the wedding so it had been worn for 10 months before being placed next to my wedding band and you really couldn’t tell the difference.  One week will be absolutely fine!

I think it probably depends on your body chemistry.  I’ve had mine a year and never redipped it and it still is white and shiny.  How long did it take it to become yellowish the first time?

I got mine rhodium coated (?) a few days before the wedding and I guess if I was really looking for marks/dulling I could have found some. I doubt it will be noticable unless you take some extreme macro shots of the rings. If anything just clean it at home to bring up the shine of the stone.

Wear your ring as much as you can, it’s the last week that you’re engaged and you better be proud of it!

 

ETA: When I got my Engagement Ring resized they sized it and dipped it adn had it back to me in less than 5 hours. If you find it looking dull, you should be able to find a place to redo it for you same day

Ummmm, I wasn’t planning on doing this…should I do this?  Now I’m slightly freaking.  How much is a dip?

@PrncssDva: You should be absolutely fine.  I always wear mine and it’s not a problem.  My husband handles heavy equipment daily at work and his was scratched up until we got it dipped last week.  Once we did, it was like a whole new ring!  But, normal daily exposure shouldn’t be a problem.  Just get it cleaned like you mentioned so it can sparkle, sparkle, sparkle! ๐Ÿ™‚

Mine is covered in the extended care policy I got from the store.  Isn’t it nice being able to get it taken care of and not having to worry about the cost?  Love it!

@PrncssDva: I know how you feel about not liking it to be gone!  My husband and I just got ours dipped so they’d be nice and shiny for our 1st anniversary (I’m wierd, I know!) and we went to the store as soon as they were ready.  It felt so wierd not to be wearing them!!!
