    Hi ladies, I have had my engagement ring for over a year. The setting is platinum and as you know over time, this metal shows scratches and nicks pretty easily. What can you do the the ring (besides a pressure/heat wash) to remove the scratches so that it looks new like the band? Is there a such thing as removing the stones to redip the ring in the metal??

      Have your jeweler re-polish it...It will smooth out all the scratches and nicks...

        Yep take it to your jeweler and they can re-dip/re-coat it for you with the stones or give it a good polishing. They won't have to remove the stones. They recommend that you do this once a year anyway. I know what you mean about "looking new" I wanna get mine done monthy Good luck.

          I would not have it re-dip yet. I would go with having it polished by a jeweler. It made a world of diff on mine.

                LOL yes, she should take it to Tiffany with her. You are to much. Everytime I see that little mound of blue boxes, I get all giggly. They are having another 50% off event on Dec. 7th, too close to the last purchases though so I don't know if I will hit the Tiffany motherload again. I am considering panhandling for a bit though :) NY pan handlers get PAID if you stand in the right place haha.

                THanks ladies!!! I will try repolishing. I completely forgot about that. My last polishing event rubbed off the coating of a pianagonda necklace so I was scared to try it again.

                Girlkin... once a month! I am not mad at that, let's keep this oh so important piece of jewelery looking its best!

                  I also have an ultra sonic cleaner at home that I just put my rings into with some dish detergent. They come out really sparkly!
