Rhodium Plating Service


Rhodium Plating is one of our most popular services. It's one of those services that gets some of the most incredible responses. The WOW factor of Rhodium plating is really quite hard to describe and even some pictures won't do it justice.

So what is Rhodium Plating?
Rhodium is a rare metal (related to platinum) which has an almost 'mirror like' finish. Not only does it have this sparkling appearance... it's also very durable and is also hypoallergenic. Rhodium is especially rare (and even quite brittle) and, in turn, really not feasible to make any kind of jewellery from it - hence the 'plating'.

Through time white gold jewellery can become quite dull and tired looking. Getting your ring Rhodium Plated will really make it come to life. We are so confident that you will be blown away by how 'shiny' and 'sparkly' your old white gold ring looks, that if you aren't impressed we'll not charge you a single penny.* As much as our rhodium plating service is great for the look of your jewellery... it can also protect it. The thin layer of rhodium (usually only a few microns thick) can last between 8-14 months depending on how often you wear the jewellery and, of course, what you do whilst wearing it.

Get in touch with one of our Rhodium Plating experts today.


*If you bring a piece of jewellery to have Rhodium Plating done and you are unhappy we will refund (to a maximum of £25) you the charge. Fair Usage Policy applies.
