About Rhodium


Rhodium is a silvery-white precious metal and a member of the platinum family. It is the material most often used to plate jewelry because it is very white, reflective, extremely hard and virtually tarnish proof. 

Do note that rhodium plating does not last indefinitely. If it is on something that is worn constantly, like a wedding or graduation ring, the rhodium plate will only usually last two to three years, but if it is something that is used on special occasions like a necklace or a pair of earrings then the rhodium plating can last up to ten years.

Keep in mind that a rhodium plate will not eliminate dents and scratches, it will only make the jewelry more shiny and bright.
