out of curiousity- what happens if you have a ring engraved on the inside and being that its white gold, after a few years you want to get it dipped again?? Will this negatively impact the engraving??

Does it have to be dipped again? I've found most men don't care if their gold has a tint to it.. most don't even notice :)

Ahh, hubby's ring...no, it won't matter a bit. However, as bean said, it may not even need it. My hubby's ring is wg and he's worn it for 10 years and it hasn't needed re-plating. It doesn't look noticeably yellow to me and he could care less. :o

I just got my ring replated. It has intricate detailing and it looks the same.

It shouldn't - the plating is usually something like 2microns thick I believe? For reference - a hair is ~100microns diametre
