 What is rhodium plating?

What is rhodium?
Rhodium is a precious metal, a member of the platinum family. It is a metal ten times as costly as gold. The price of rhodium plated jewelry can be slightly higher comparing to the one without but the benefit is also substantial. But It is not a feasible material to make solid jewelry from because it is too stressed and brittle, but rhodium is fabulous as a plating for jewelry because it is glitteringly, dazzlingly, white and mirror-like.

Many of 360Jewels' arts are made of silver which, by nature, can be scratched and tarnished. Plating our precious pieces with rhodium, therefore helps extend the scratch-free / tarnish-free lifespan of our silver pieces a great deal.

The good quality plating can be very durable. For the pieces that have less contact like pins or earrings that you don't wear very often, the plating can last upto 10 years or even more. For the pieces that you wear everyday like a wedding band, it might wear off after 2 years. Good thing is you can simply replate your jewelry after the plating wears off.
