Rhodium is a shiny silvery-white element in the same category as platinum used to coat jewelry and prevent tarnishing. Because of its eye-catching luster and durability, rhodium jewelry is a popular choice among jewelry shoppers. We use rhodium often to ensure that our jewelry lasts a lifetime and longer. We have designed rhodium-plated rings, necklaces, and earrings with or without gemstones. Our collection includes rhodium stud earrings and the Avalon Wrap Necklace and bracelets with small, hand-crafted sculptures.
What is rhodium plated?
Metal jewelry may be plated in rhodium to add an extra layer of protection or a brighter silver color. Rhodium is rare and therefore expensive, but it’s also worry-free and worth the investment.
Does rhodium tarnish? No, rhodium jewelry is resistant to scratches, tarnishing, and fading. Rhodium is also nickel-free and does not irritate sensitive skin.
Rhodium vs silver
Rhodium is silver in color, but the two metals are different. Rhodium is more valuable than silver due to its rarity. Sterling silver is softer and more susceptible to wear. If you have sterling silver jewelry and are worried about the wear, consider shopping for rhodium-plated silver, which is shinier than silver and less costly than gold.
