Rhodium-dipped white gold

Recommended Posts

Wow, I am surprised at how quickly all these rings need to be re-dipped. I have had my ring since December 2006, and it has never been re-dipped. I have had my wedding bands since May 2008, and they look fine too. And there is no difference between the three.

 

Hmmmmm, wondering if I should get mine done and would they look better? Like maybe they look bad now and I don't even know it??

i drop mine off with a local jewler & pick it up in an hour or two. he is next to a mall, so I usually just shop until it's ready.

i called around to find someone who can do it right then. some places will send it off to be done & it will take a few days.

the price is usually $20-$30

I just called the jeweler who FI got the ring from...its $35. I have had the ring for about 2.5 years and have never gotten it done. My is just a bit dull and yellow on the underside so only I know its there. But I am going to get it done right before the wedding so when pics are taken it actually looks nice :-)

 

But that jeweler is now about a 12 hour drive away so I might have to look around. My e-ring is also about 2 sizes too big...oops

I just had mine done while being resized. Although I don' have to pay anything for mine, its included in my lifetime warranty. I've had it for a year and only had it done once.

Did you notice a difference? I am wondering if I should get mine done now... When I bought my wedding bands last April, the jeweler said my ering was fine and didn't need any dipping. But now I wonder, since it's almost a year later...

the place we got my ring has free dipping for life, and they said not to do it more than once a year if you can help it because in order to re-dip it they first have to buff it up (almost like mini-sandblasting haha) to prepare the surface for the rhodium to stick to it. so if you do it too much, your band will actually wear down over time.

 

we got my ring in october of 2007, i had it dipped right before the wedding in july 08, and have not had it done again yet. it was pretty yellow in comparison to my wedding band back last year, but now they both look the same next to each other. ill probably get it done every year using our anniversary as a reminder :)

 

oh and it takes less than an hour at my place.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
