White Gold and the Importance of Re-Dipping

White gold is all the rage today and with it comes something that my wife and I weren’t aware of back when I bought her ring: having to get the rings re-dipped. This article does a great job of explaining the concept of white gold vs. yellow gold, and if you’re in the market for a ring right now, you definitely will want to check out this column on glamour that talks about the things nobody tells you before buying. The biggest thing to keep in mind is that if you buy white gold, it will eventually turn yellow-ish in color over time and will require a re-dipping every 1-4 years in order to maintain its brilliant white finish. It can be costly, but you can count my wife among those who say it is worth it. –Adam
