Yes you should always have your e-ring polished or re-dipped (white gold) because every blemish/little scratch will stand out like crazy against your new wedding band

My jeweler is going to polish it a day before the wedding so that it doesn’t look different than my new wedding band.

I had my ring cleaned for the wedding. I wanted it to look it’s best for the close up shots! :). I wore mine for 18 months, but there was no patina. I do get it cleaned every 6 months though, and it takes 10 minutes not 2-3 weeks. I probably wouldn’t want to be without my ring for that long either.

Gelamac is right that against your brand new wedding band the scratches/dirty/patina will stand out. My friend recently got married and of course during cocktail hour I asked to see her wedding band. It was clear as day she had not gotten her e-ring cleaned.

It shouldnt take 2-3 weeks.  I went e-ring shopping with a friend of mine, and the jewelry store offered to clean my rings.  To my surprise, they’d polished the entire thing and it looked brand new again.. in just 15 minutes.

I did it and think it’s worth it! You want your ring to look it’s best….your wedding day is what your engagement ring led up to! Show it off!

Your nuts!

Just kidding, but you should definitely get it cleaned and polished before your wedding. Your photographer will be taking pictures of it, and people will be asking to see it. 

Go somewhere local. It’s not like you’re having it re-sized or repaired, any relatively competent jeweler should be able to clean your ring without issue.

@LittleRiver:  Is that a Mark Morrell ring? Beautiful! I would definitely send it back to him, as I’ve heard that his platinum polish is like no other.

I had my wedding bands soldered to my ering and they shined it up all pretty for me. 🙂  I’d probably take it somewhere local and just have them clean it while you wait. I can’t imagine sending mine through the mail just for a cleaning! I would freak lol.

I most likely won’t. There’s no patina on it yet and I like to do things myself like cleaning it, but I do that every other day anyways. I take it for it’s six monthly check ups at the jeweler because I have to but I don’t like leaving it with them because it always takes them an age even though the jeweler bench is right there.
