About white gold:
There is not such thing as white gold all gold is yellow. When they make "white gold", they use actually yellow gold and silver color alloys, such as silver, platinum and many other to make it took white. When ring is made it still looks yellow and to make it look white, they dip it in rhodium, rhodium comes of in 6 month - 1 year, depends how you wear your ring and what you do with your hands. To get it back to white as it used to be, just take it to jeweller and have it rhodium plated. It usually cost 40-50$. Also if you bought your ring from big chains, such as mappins, people's, ben moss, charms and so on, you might have purchased additional warranty for you ring. If you did, this warranty would cover your rhodium plating cost.

We are on a very tight budget, and I told FI before he proposed that I did not want an expensive ring. Anyway, I LOVE my ring... It is simple and sweet and very me. I believe it is white gold, or maybe has a white gold coating? Anyway, the colour has started to change, and I was wondering if that treatment you guys were talking about would work to help with that? It is getting pretty dark on part of the band where my other fingers hit it. I would like it fixed, but it is not a big deal. When FI saw that he got a little upset, but I love my ring even with the discoloration!
Anyway, wondering if that will help. What do you think?
