Nice job Dana!! Gorgeous, how'd you get the 3 stone to be rose?
er... i didn't? it's rhodium plated silver. if it looks pink, that would be because it was reflecting the colour of my walls. sorry
Great job on the ring makeovers! They both look so much nicer in the after pics.
the band on my thumb is rose gold and older than i am.
Dana, I am wondering if this ring has changed color during your lifetime. What kt rose gold is it? I had a jeweler tell me that rose gold gets warmer with age and starts looking more peach and less pink. He said he had a rose gold wedding band and that it changed color over time. Have you also found this to be the case?
nope. or, rather, sometimes rings (both old and new) just need a light cleaning after they sit for a while. when they need to be cleaned, it can affect their colour and make rose gold look either peachier or orangier, or make (unplated) white gold more yellow, or even make yellow gold look brassy.
but a quick dip in any jewelry cleaner, or a buff with a Sunshine Cloth and they're all back to their proper colour.
that said, a lot of antique jewelry that is called "rose gold" ... isn't. or, rather, isn't what we now call rose gold. the mixture for yellow gold used to very often be slightly pink. basically halfway between what we think of as yellow and rose. because that colour is so much more flattering to most skin tones.
i think of it as Blush Gold... it isn't yellow, and it isn't pink.
i have rings older than this one, and the ones that were proper rose gold still are, and the ones that were blush gold are still that colour.
they look amazing..:-)).... and I LOVE your nails!... Beautiful.. do you unset and set those stone yourself??..
i can never wear just one nail polish. i always end up with crazy layers.
and yes, i did the stone switching myself. but remember, if you're not willing to destroy it, don't mess with it.
