About White Gold...
& How to Remove a Stuck Ring
For a year before my husband proposed I made him play a game called "guess which one Dom would want." I would be reading a magazine with a ring add and would ask him if he thought I'd like that particular style. Or when we'd pass a jewelry store, we'd go in and I'd point out the ones I liked.
Yes, I am THAT girl!
Anyway, when you Google search "engagement rings," you'll find that the results are almost completely shown in white gold (or perhaps platinum). What many people do not realize is that white gold isn't naturally occurring. I did know this but didn't think much of it. All I knew was that yellow gold wasn't for me.
So when a beautiful white gold ring showed up in the little black box, I was psyched. And for 4 years I sported that ring, along with a white gold wedding band.
Nothing worked! So I popped an Aleve in the hopes that the swelling would go down and I continued on with my day all with the lingering thought of a hospital visit in the back of my mind. I tried not freak out, knowing that doing so would only make things worse.
And by 8pm I was determined to try one last trick: The dental floss trick.
It was a little gory and definitely a little painful. BUT I got it off!
I have deduced, although it isn't a sure thing, that if I take the rings in to be rhodium coated I can continue to wear the rings. After 4 years of never having been treated, I am sure it is about time.
To anyone with a similar struggle- try the dental floss trick!
