Has anyone ever heard of this before? The other day I took my engagement ring back to the jeweler and asked her if it's normal that after only 7 months my white gold ring is looking yellowy on the bottom. When I tried on wedding rings, it was amazing how pretty and shiny the wedding rings were, and how yellow and old looking my fairly new ring was in comparison. My fear was that if it looks like this now, what will it look like in 20 years?? She said there is a process called rhodium plating that is very common with white gold jewelry, and that I should probably plan on having it done once a year for my engagement ring and my wedding ring. Has anyone done this? The process would be free as often as I need it for the life of the ring, so I mostly want to know if there are any downsides to be wary of before having it done. My ring is a solitaire, but it has small diamonds on each side in a "channel". I don't want the diamonds to be affected, and I'd like some outside opinions!
