Rhodium is a precious metal belonging to the platinum family, known for its silvery-white color and high reflectivity.
Rhodium plating is a technique used in jewelry making to create more affordable pieces by bonding a thin layer of rhodium onto a common metal or alloy.
Rhodium plating is achieved through electroplating, which involves cleaning the jewelry, applying a positive electrical charge, and fusing a thin layer of rhodium onto the surface.
The thickness of rhodium plating should be carefully chosen to balance durability and prevent cracking. Daily-worn jewelry like rings requires a thicker layer compared to less frequently worn pieces.
Rhodium plating can be applied over yellow gold, transforming its color and providing a new shine to the jewelry.
Black rhodium plating involves adding black ink during the plating process, resulting in a jewelry piece with a mysterious and edgy appearance. This type of plating requires more frequent touch-ups to maintain the shiny black look.
Enhances shine, durability, and hypoallergenic properties.
Enjoy the amazing beauty of rhodium-plated jewelry, where elegance meets resilience.
