Gah 2.0

Back in the fall, I mentioned that my wedding rings were causing my fingers to break out in a red itchy rash. I had hoped that rhodium plating would solve the problem for a couple years at a time, but unfortunately that doesn't seem to be the case. It has only been about 4 months (almost to the day!) after getting them plated in the States during the holidays that they've started irritating my fingers again. So at some point in the near future I'm going to have to get a new wedding ring, which is disappointing to say the least.

eep! hope you can get it figured out, would hate for you to have to get new ones. (for me, I don't wear it while cooking/cleaning)

"eep!" just about sums it up... It would definitely help my skin to not wear my rings while cooking, cleaning, bathing, and sleeping - but I just like to have them on all of the time. I could get them rhodium plated every 4 months for the rest of my life, but that starts to add up pretty quickly. So although not ideal, I think getting a new yellow gold ring will be the best solution.
