What is Rhodium?

Rhodium Plating provides protection for our sterling silver and white gold jewelry, coating it to help prevent tarnish and scratches. A rhodium finish, however, is not impervious to the effects of everyday wear and abrasion. To limit wear one should avoid household cleaning, gardening, and other activities that can quickly destroy the rhodium plating, thus exposing the slightly yellow tint of the white gold underneath. Even talc, which is found in many cosmetics, is known to have an abrasive effect on jewelry items. If wear does occur, most jewelry can be re-plated with rhodium at a local jeweler for a minimal cost. The plating on pendants and earrings lasts longer than on rings, as they are not exposed to friction. Here are some tips for keeping your rhodium plated jewelry looking its best:
  • Do not use any abrasive cloths for polishing.
  • Do not use chemical cleaners.
  • Clean only with mild soap and water.
Enjoy the beauty of rhodium plated jewelry, an affordable way to capture the platinum appeal.
