Considering Rhodium Plating?

02/06/2017

At Hodgkinsons' we love introducing a new service... this service isn't new to be fair - but we ARE introducing it to YOU.

Is your Wedding Ring looking tired? Is your bespoke piece of jewellery 'letting you down' ... after all these years? Time can take its toll on your jewellery but it doesn't mean it can't be brought back to life. 

Rhodium is a very precious metal. It can cost many times more than gold! Rhodium is generally not seen as a sensible material to make jewellery from, (it is stressed & brittle and very difficult to "work") and its price is very volatile*. Rhodium is fabulous as a plating for jewellery as it is dazzlingly white and mirror-like. It's one of the most reflective of metals.

Rhodium plating can make your diamonds look bigger and brighter as it's so bright that it glints alongside the diamond(s). 

From a couple of feet away, and under most lighting conditions, it's hard to see where the stone ends and the 'metal' begins. Nothing sets off a diamond more than rhodium plating. 

Ask one of our team about our Rhodium Plating Offers... or get in touch via our website.

*Rhodium is never mined for its own self because it's too rare for it to be feasible. It's a minor by-product from platinum mining & refining.
