    Default How much do you wear your rings/Rhodium plating

    Hi everyone,

    Just wondering how often you wear your white gold engagement and wedding rings? Do you wear them constantly or take them off at certain times etc? How often do you get the rhodium re-done and how soon after purchasing a ring would you expect to see rhodium wearing off?

    I'll come back later with the story as to why I'm asking but let's just say my very expensive 7 week old wedding rings rhodium has started to wear off and the sales assistant gave me a questionable reason as to why.

    Looking forward to hearing about your rings.

    TIA xx

    Default How much do you wear your rings/Rhodium plating

    I take them off in the evenings when I start tidying up the kitchen and do not put them back on again until morning. My hands swell when I sleep so I find it uncomfortable to wear them in bed. I'll take them off when I wash my hands if I'm some place where I can set them safely, water gets trapped behind my engagement setting and I find it annoying. Take them off when swimming as I get paranoid about loosing some of the tiny diamonds.

    Mine don't look like they need to be 're-dipped,' I'd never even thought of it! I'll ask our jeweler when we're back in Melb in March if he thinks I need to but I think they look fine. I've never done it and have had the engagement ring (which was from an antique auction) for 4 years and my wedding ring for 3.

    I wear them all day everyday besides the above.

    I wear my white gold rings all the time and last had them rhodium plated um... About 4 years ago 😳. They are starting to go slightly yellow gold but still not too bad.
    This reminds me I should go and get them done!

    I wear mine all day at work, generally take them off at home when im making dinner or cleaning up etc.

    The rhodium plating should last you 6 - 12 months depending on how rough you are with your rings.

    I've worn mine almost constantly for nearly 12 years and have had them re-dipped twice. They probably need doing again.

    I NEVER take mine off. They need to be dipped every year, though realistically they don't last long, I could easily get it done every 3-6 months they go grey that often. In fact I've always questioned the quality of my white gold. The 3 diamonds I know their quality as I have a certificate, but the white hold does concern me.

    Eagerly awaiting your update OP!

    I only wear my wedding band now but when I wore together it came off where they rubbed. I don't wear it at home so doesn't get wet etc. redipped twice in 7 years.

    I wore mine all the time - gardening, washing dishes, every hands-on thing I did. The underside would go yellowish and a little bit scratchy, but the top would stay nice and shiny, so I would only get mine re-plated once a year/18 months.

    That's what I love about white gold...for $35 you get a brand new (looking) ring every year!

    I'm so curious about my ring now! I've seriously never noticed that it needs to be dipped but now I'm wondering if it does and it's just my untrained eye that thinks it looks fine.
