I've got some nice Dragonplate armour now and I was thinking about enchanting it with something nice. My enchantment skill is not maxed out though, so I will only be able to put some mediocre enchantments on the armour.

Can I put some weaker enchantment on it now and later, when I have better enchantment skill, replace the enchantment with something new? Or can I only enchant plain, non-magical items? Is there a way to unenchant an item?

You cannot replace enchantments, nor can you add to already enchanted items with the Extra Effect perk.

It is better to wait until you have a high Enchanting skill and the Extra Effect perk before enchanting good equipment, unless you have the materials to make another one.

To be clear: The Extra Effect perk does not allow you to add an enchantment to any items. It allows you to select up to two when creating enchanted items. – user9983 Dec 10 '11 at 17:02
@OrigamiRobot Updated to make it more clear, otherwise it was very misleading information. – Sadly Not Apr 26 '13 at 20:33
