Rhodium plating white gold
White gold jewellery requires periodical rhodium plating, to keep it looking flawlessly white. With every day wear, your plating will wear off and at first it will be noticeable on the bottom of your band.
It is up to you how often you have your rings replated. We recommend once per year or 18 months depending on how often you wear your rings. If you are unsure, come in and we will advise you if your rings are due to be plated. Sometimes our ultrasonic and steam pressure cleaner is enough to keep them looking new.
Before we rhodium plate your rings, we check all your stones, tighten them if necessary and polish them. Any deep scratches will be removed with emery, but depending on the depth, we may not be able to remove them completely.
Many of our clients ask if rhodium plating and polishing removes gold from the ring. The simple answer is yes, but we are talking about microns, which is negligible. Our experienced jewellers will emery and polish your rings with care.
Our aim is to preserve your ring to make it last as many years as possible.
We will advise you if any additional work is necessary due to wear and tear before we commence servicing your ring.
