Has your white gold jewellery lost its shine?
Rhodium plating is a highly reflective white surface which gives a brilliant shine. Over time this surface may become dull and wear away. We can restore your jewellery to look like new again – rhodium replating gives your white gold jewellery a mirror-shine finish.
Our short video gives you a demonstration of steps taken to clean and polish a ring prior to rhodium plating. Rings are intensively cleaned before dipping in a white gold rhodium finish for a brilliant white shine, using the following process:
- Ultrasonic cleaner - removes dirt from stone set jewellery
- Buffing – polishes out surface scratches
- Steam clean – high precision steam cleaner to bring out the sparkle in your diamonds and other precious stones
How long will the rhodium replating last on my ring?
This depends on how often you wear your jewellery. The rhodium plating will wear away with contact and exposure to elements such as the oils on your skin, washing up liquid and moisturiser. We recommend you remove your jewellery when doing dishes and housework to protect your rings.
Can you turn yellow gold ring into a white gold ring?
We can do this but it is not a permanent fix and will wear off in time, so the rhodium will need to be applied to keep the white finish. If you decide you don’t like the jewellery in its new white gold appearance the rhodium plating on yellow gold can be delicately removed.
