Rhodium is a precious metal that is in the family of platinum. For rhodium plated jewelry, it involves plating the jewelry with a surface that guards against scratches that also gives a reflective white appearance. It is most commonly found on white gold jewelry but can also be used on silver and other materials. Rhodium plating can also be referred to rhodium flashing or rhodium dip.What are the benefits?There are many upsides to rhodium plated jewelry. First, it increases shine, luster and durability. Additionally, it will make your jewelry more resistant to scratches and if it's silver, less prone to tarnishing. Another popular benefit to rhodium plating is the fact that it makes your jewelry hypoallergenic. This is because it's nickel-free. So if you have a nickel allergy, rhodium plating is a good option for you.How long Does Rhodium Plating Last?Because it is just plating it will wear off over time, however there are different factors that can affect how long rhodium plating lasts.
