Rhodium-dipped white gold

Recommended Posts

I searched to see if this has been mentioned in a previous topic, but no luck, so I'm going to create one of my own :) As some of you may remember, I had quite a fuss with my pink topaz e-ring a while ago when I thought it had faded, only to find out that it needed to be re-plated with rhodium to make it all sparkly again (and it looked fabulous when I got it back, I must say wink.gif ) Anyway, it's been a few months, and it's starting to look dull again. I have a lifetime warranty on the ring with the jewellery store where I bought it and I can get it re-sized and re-plated whenever I see fit. I'm just wondering, how often should I get my ring re-dipped? Is there such a thing as getting it done too often? I was thinking once a year, but it hasn't even been six months and it's beginning to dull again, so maybe once every six months? I have no idea smile116.gif

i also have a white gold setting that needs to get dipped. my jeweler does it for free 3 times per year, he said any more than that is not good or even really necessary for the ring.

Maybe Im missing something here.
white gold is yellow gold mixed with another metal & dipped in rhodium.

I haven't had mine dipped in about a year & it still shines. i do take it off when i shower. also chlorine is bad for it. a jeweler can also to a thinner or thicker coat. thicker lasts longer.

Three times a year sounds about right... So every four months, which is about how long it takes for the plating to wear off the one I have now :) Awesome! I thought I was just being crazy by wanting to do it more than once a year, I didn't want to take complete advantage of the free platings (even though they are free :P)

I've had my engagement ring 4 years and its never needed to be done - i got it in cancun lol

 

But when I put my wedding ring next to it it has faded so i'll get it done before I go but i agree it depends on how thick they do it as to how long it lasts

That makes sense. If I had to do mine only once a year, it would be disgusting by the end of that year (kinda like it was when I got it re-done a few months ago, I had waited a year and a half before getting it re-done). So I think for those of you that are getting them done once a year, you must have a thicker coating than mine, because mine would NOT last that long before looking dull. So every 4-6 months, pretty much whenever it gets dull again, I'll be sending it back in :) Just wanted to make sure I wasn't being too crazy about it getting dull lol

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
