Rhodium Plating of White Gold

Our rhodium plating is the highest quality available. It is icy-white and it provides lustre and makes the jewellery more scratch resistant. We always apply a double thickness of rhodium plating. This quality rhodium plating is $90 per ring but is complimentary for all Stephen Dibb Jewellery originals under our After Care Program.  

The rhodium plating is a process which gives the white gold its ultra-white colour by placing a coating over the existing metal.  How long it last depends on wear for example a white gold ring that you wear everyday on your hand will require rhodium plating sooner than a pendant worn around your neck.  The rhodium plating process puts a current through the metal and the rhodium binds to the elements of the jewellery that conduct current (metal not gemstones & diamonds).  We use nail polish to isolate the areas we don’t want plated.
